A New Hobby

Everyone has a hobby and, even though blogging and shopping and just learning all I can about fashion can be considered a pretty consuming pastime, I've always felt like I've needed to collect something of value. Last week, I lost an AMAZING/beautiful/epic/mind-blowing/perfect/ideal vintage Chanel handbag by $5 - FIVE DOLLARS - on eBay (can you tell I'm still not over it?) and decided that collecting vintage designer handbags would be my newfound hobby! To heal the wound caused by my disastrous loss, I bid on a vintage Louis Vuitton cross-body bag that is no longer in production and it's on its way to my house as we speak.

 I don't know what it is about Louis Vuitton (and logos in general) that has turned me off from buying a handbag in the past, but I have come to realize that I don't really mind the older styles and that, maybe in the future, I could possibly invest in an LV. For now, I choose to own a piece of fashion history (and hope it's authentic).
