The Butt Of Our Jokes

The Chanel Coco Cabas denim bag has been a long time inside joke between me and DZ. We both agree that if you're going to spend thousands of dollars on a bag, it should be a classic style made from leather or exotic skin. I mean why do you want to spend your hard earned money on a bag that will be an embarrassment within 12 months and have absolutely no upgrade value since its made from denim or canvas??! To us the bag you see here is the epitome of what NOT to spend your money on. Yea sure, its Chanel but tell me what part of this bag is worth $1300?? Is denim really that expensive?? I'll make you one and it'll probably cost me less than $100. I mean sometimes its a issue of taste. Some people just like this kind of stuff and dont mind spending their money on it. Fine, more power to you. Then there are those who buy this kind of stuff cus "Its a Chanel!". Those are the people I feel sorry for. They think they'll get an immediate status upgrade cus they have "A Chanel" dangling from their arms when in reality, they just went broke over an unfortunately overpriced piece of junk. So please, if you're going to splurge on a bag either A. Make sure you truly love it or B. If you want a social upgrade, make sure the bag is worth the investment...

**Note: If you are one of those people who think materialistic things give you an automatic social upgrade, I would also recommend spending some money on therapy...
