I got it a few months ago at the retail price- under 9k

The value is high because it’s near impossible to get unless you buy resale, and prices skyrocket. This particular bag was custom, and I waited over a year for it to be ready


So cool! How did you get it??

What was your pre spend amount? Asking because I really want to get one! (Everyone else, you can throw tomatoes 😅)

I have one question. And I'm assuming that for every pair of Reneging CowVillain shoes you buy, you give ten times that sum to a tzedaka that provides shoes for needy children. Ditto every other conspicuously self-indulgent purchase you make. And I don't say that you mustn't buy these things, though I wonder how that shtims with "hatznea lechet." But if you can afford it, good for you.

Still, are you not just a teeny beeny bit uncomfortable flaunting your expenditures on threads like these when you know that there are women here who don't know how they'll buy food for next Shabbos or who are pleading for hand-me-down clothes for their children or, worse, hand-me-down meds? And don't hand me the standard heartless organic fertilizer response that "people who are triggered by threads like these shouldn't open them." I ain't buying it.

Do the world a favor and start your own website--not a separate thread-- where you can revel in your wealth and your obscene expenditures together with others of your ilk without causing pain to the many people here who are not quite so materially blessed as you. Or has it escaped your notice that on average, imamothers tend to be on the lower end of the income spectrum?

ETA I'm not picking solely on the amoother, I mean amother, who said she has Rene Caovillas. The rest of you know exactly who you are.

I hear you, and understand your upset. I wish that it could be a closed forum so that it doesn't cause people pain. I also want you to know that I spend WAY more in tzeddaka than I do on luxuries. Not just regular to an organization tzeddaka, but pay the person in front of me noticeably struggles tzeddaka. Walk into a grocery and pay off some accounts tzeddaka. "Lend" money to people I know I'll never get it back from tzeddaka. And most of all, I've been in a place where I needed tzeddaka! The money I have also comes with the knowledge that one day, I might not have it anymore. I try to invest smartly and surprise, but things like classic chanel bags and Hermès bags among other pieces are actually some sid investments. I don't blame you for getting upset, I also didn't know this till I hit a certain bracket. Anything luxury I get is a thought out decision. I often wonder if there are people like me who think ahead this much or if it's residual trauma from years of being in the red. I also want to add, the things I have spoken about here and in the high end forum are things I have NEVER discussed with friends or peers irl, for fear of ayin hara and hatznei lachem. It's also why I stay anonymous. And also the reason why you wouldn't catch me dead in anything with a logo. I lead a normal life and don't shop in high end stores for my kids or myself, save for a few luxury accessories here and there precisely because I don't want to up a standard. I'm always torn between feeling like I need to apologize for the things that Hashem gave me and the hard work I invested to get here and simply just continuing to do the good I do without responding to judgement. I wish all of klal yisrael can be wealthy, and iyh, I hope very soon with the coming of Moshiach, we will be. Not only materially wealthy but mentally, spiritually, emotionally, among other types of wealth.

I’m only jealous that you can give ,millions? To tzedaka. I wish I can give that. I always dreamed of giving loads of tzedaka.
I never wanted designer stuff it never interested me I’m not interested in fancy bags or shoes.
My dreams are to have a nice house and give loads to tzedaka.

Same.
It doesn't sound like op uses the money for fancy bags to wear. I highly doubt she goes out wearing that bag....

I wish I had more money so I can go into a regular basic jewish owned store amd just buy whatever I need without looking at the price.

My $250 dollar shoes was a long thought out purchase. I bought it a year ago. Nut it still looks brand new. I keep my stuff for a long time. And I have sensitive feet. It was the only pair of shoes that was appropriate for more than one occasion ans comfy.

But more than that, dh and I have all these grandiose plans what we'll do with out chomesh once we get rich. And what we'll do with stam the extra money beyond chomesh. (Like build super high quality very affordable housing projects...)
