Oh how I love you!
My little girl is going to first grade this school year. That means no more tuition for private school. It gives me a good excuse to get back with my Chanel love. Since it’s going to be a big splurge, it has to be perfect. I really want to take time to do research. The first step is trying to convince the husband that spending thousands of $$ on a purse is not that bad (I can’t believe I am saying this). We went to Tiffany last night and he asked me what piece of jewelry I would like next? Perfect opportunity! I told him that I don’t want any more jewelry. I am saving up for a Chanel. Here is part of our conversion..
Husband: “Chanel? is that a purse?
Me: Yes, it’s not just a purse. It’s a timeless and classic purse.
Husband: OK, why do you have to save up for it? How expensive is it?
Me: Well, it depends but I am thinking about spending 2K for it.
Husband: **Speechless for 5 seconds**. Why does it cost so much?
Me: Because they are made from only the best material such as lambskin.
Husband: Lambskin probably costs $30.00 in China
Me: **Ignored that answer**. It’s also a timeless piece that I know I am going to love and keep forever.
Husband: You said that with all of your purses.
Me: **Ignored again** – This conversation is going nowhere. It is also an investment piece since the price is going up from time to time.
Husband: It’s not an investment piece if you can’t make any profit out of it.
Me: Several years from now, if I want to sell it, I bet you anything, I’ll get all my money back and maybe a little extra.
Husband: But you said you’ll keep it forever.
Me: Oops! Well, I am just saying.
Husband: I just want to make sure that you don’t think you have to carry a certain brand or a certain thing to make you feel good.
Me: No, certainly not. As I get older, I just want to invest in something that is classic and timeless. Something that I will love for years to come.
Husband: OK! You can get whatever you want. You deserve only the best. Just make sure you do enough of research. I always have a soft spot for you.
The funny thing is that we had this whole conversation inside Nordies. The SA probably wondered what in the world they are talking about.
