She obviously doesn't own one, thank you for clarifying I was just going to let he rant on about it.

The most popular LV bags are made of "coated canvas" not leather. Because they wanted a durable/weather proof material for luggage.

The only leather bags at LV are even more expensive. They start at like $5000. The "cheaper" ones with the monograms or the checkerboard are coated canvas.

I like my friends. I can't think of one I'd give a $1000 gift to.

This is the exact purse she bought me. http://www.louisvuitton.com/front/#/...earch/BACKPACK I do like it, however I was just floored how much it cost considering it was not even leather.

My friend has a lot of money and she buys a LV purse for all her friends. She buys me nice gifts a lot, she is really a nice person and just likes doing nice things because she can.

Sounds like she is trying to buy friendship to me, but whatever floats your boat. As long as you enjoy your time with her.

Not necessarily. Money is different value to different people. An upper middle class person who makes, say, $350,000, doesn't really understand that $1000 is a lot more than $100 because they live on a different scale. It's not that they are trying to impress, it's just the scale on which they spend on. Conversely, a poor person thinks $200 is a lot more than $100 because they live on a smaller scale. It's all perception based on available resources.
