I was finishing off 7th grade and spent hours every day dreaming about designer handbags. Please mom. Please dad. I will do x, y, and z. And finally, right before 8th grade, my parents got me my first designer handbag, a Coach bag. From that day on I was practically the most annoying child a parent could have. Telling my parents I needed an allowance, hoping to go to the mall every week to oogle handbags. It was where the obsession started. I did not start to get more designer handbags until college, where I practically calculated every penny I could save to buy more handbags. The obsession continued, and now I have a very sizable collection that continues to grow that I buy myself.
What about you? How did your handbag obsession begin?
