Do you ever read too many fashion magazines or websites and your sense of rationality gets completely warped (I believe "Vogue warped" is the medical term), whether you start thinking that four-hundred pounds of layered chunky cardigans would totally work on you and be totally flaterring, or that $700 is a perfectly reasonable price for shoes when you usually think twice about a $70 pair from Nine West? This phenomenon became disturbingly clear to me when I saw this bag on a website. It's a Fendi, and it costs $1000.
Now, normally I spend about $50 on my handbags, and normally this bag would trigger a little mental rant in me about how canvas and leather should never cost so damn much, Fendi Shmendi, but instead I found myself thinking, "Wow. $1000. That's really not so bad." I caught myself mid-thought, but the damage is done. I'm warped. I looked at one too many $3000 dollar handbags and suddenly a $1000 Fendi is like a sensible purchase from the accessories clearance rack at Sears. Damnit.
