I grew up in the North Shore. That's ok I despise Diamondbacks.

Saying "Chi-town" is working class wannabe.

Peace out...

p.s. I thought you were a snotty, pretentious woman the whole time...

Yah, hay dere. I grew up in the northern Illinoise subs which is pretty close to Wisconsin, donchaknow, which is darn close to Canada and I kinda like hockey, so . . . Who knows? I might be.

OUCH!! Well, all my buds from the north shore said "Chi-town". Hell, my parents were sodbusters. Maybe that's what I aspire to be??

I studied the size, shape and look of it before having that inevitable 'it looks great' response from the commissioned and pressured retail professional. I could not imagine dropping nearly 2K blindly. Especially if you're a regular person who works very hard for what they have, like me. I expect that bag to last me at least 10 years, if not more.

As far as I'm concerned, a bag says absolutely nothing about me other than I don't give a damn what a person thinks. If I carried a bag (which I don't), whether or not I look good carrying it is thoroughly irrelevant.

A brand becomes too out there, too available and for a while that's good, and then it's too ubiquitous and that's bad.

I can remember several years ago I took a flight back to Pittsburgh, and our stop at Las Vegas the flight picked up a whole lot of women carrying Coach bags. I actually thought there was a convention of some sort for Coach.... It was practically every woman.

But I've seen this devaluation of other products, too.

Krispy Kreme donuts -- they were busy storefronts and then they put their donuts in grocery stores and the stores lost business, and a number of them closed. Warm Krispy Kremes are a delight -- cold -- not so much. And the donuts are not in stores anymore.

I could think of more but Ghost Mine is starting.....
God, I love business cases. Best part of uni, hands down. I could read them all day (even if they all start with some CEO staring out of his window at yachts in the bay).

I digress. There has always been criticism of outlet stores, however, I saw an astounding number of women with the large MK Hamilton ($300+) when I was in NYC, and you can get these on eBay and find loads of MK bags in TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc. - plus they have their own outlet store - so I can't believe it has as great of an effect as naysayers say.

Picking on someone with a serious medical condition just makes you a b*tch, not judgmental.

Oh no.... I also lived in north IL subs close to Wisc., and kinda like hockey. Please tell me we were not neighbors! Although that would explain why you are a smartass, like me.... it's in our upbringing.
I'm afraid to ask - what town did you grow up in?

"Buds" is working class wannabe.

Is everyone done PMSing? If not, can someone please pass around some chocolate and ice cream.
