I Covet Thee

I used to be quite the spender on Madison Avenue. The folks at Barneys and Calvin Klein and Prada knew me by my name and welcomed me with open arms and glasses of champagne and the latest offerings from the season.

But I have curbed my spending. I tell people the real reason is for my Manhattan apartment fund, but the larger reason is that I honestly feel like I have everything that falls in my taste realm. When I go into stores these days, I get kind of bored because either the clothes are too crazy that no sane guy with any sense of masculinity would wear them, or I already have five shirts like it.

But someone please tell me that it's crazy to spend $1,100 on this bag from Mulberry. Omg, I love it. Actually, maybe you need to tie me down to a chair, and cut up my credit card.

From Jayne: Did you hear about the faux purses in northern Virginia? Search google news for: purse parties. Caveat emptor!

Put your hands down..and step away from the bag..no sudden movies here.

Seriously..not to depress you, but when it comes to your apartment fund, calculate how much you can put on a down payment, and then add $15-20,000 for closing costs.

A bag in the hand is worth two apartments in the bush. Or something like that.

I love that bag... but, I love my apartment more. :)

I could never afford a bag like that, but I own my apartment!

I can't even justify spending $200 on a bag. But then, I'm pretty much refusing to spend any money on style at all until Spring.

you can buy it as a 'present' for someone...

.. and i'll even let you borrow it once in a while.
