Exactly! My BF bought me a LV for my 30th b-day
I love handbags...I have one for basically any occasion.
I don't spend tons of $$ on clothes, b/c let's face it, clothes go in and out of style...plus at places like Gap and Banana Republic, they are on sale in 3 weeks anyway. I hate paying full price for stuff.
A nice piece of jewelry, watch, accessory, handbag, etc. Will last and when wearing something simple, a *splash* like that will make more of a splash than an expensive Chanel suit or whatever.
But I understand the practical side of people, I mean, I wouldn't want to spend tons of money on a Mercedes b/c I know I would have to finance it, and we actually DRIVE our car, so to spend money on something that depreciates in value...well, I don't like that!
But I figure one day I can give my daughter my LV bag...they're the oldest logo item in the world
As for your friend who wants to sell on ebay...I think anything guaranteeing it's authenticity will be helpful. My cousin wanted an LV for Christmas so my aunt told her "this is all you're getting" and bought the one she wanted off ebay (there was a significant cost savings, maybe like $100-150 or so)...well nothing *guaranteed* it's authneticity...my aunt was stuck with a bogus bag for like $300...my cousin is a bit spoiled and she FLIPPED!!!! But live and learn I guess. I know I would prefer buying the "real" stuff on non-Ebay related websites. Just me talkin'
