Carrie Bradshaw said it best when she said:
I've been collecting designer pieces since I was 17 years old. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't go crazy and spend copious amounts of money on many items at once. A little bit here & there over time and you've got yourself a collection of what will one day be vintage and worth a lot more than what you initially spent. I hope to one day pass down these pieces to my daughter(s), daughter-in-law(s), grand daughter(s) and so on and so forth.
Every dime I've spent on designer things I have worked very hard for and I like to call it a pat on the back when I finally take a trip to Louis Vuitton, Prada etc.... Who needs a man to buy these things for us anyways? It just ends up being a reminder of them rather than something we personally worked for - and in the end that's something nobody can take away from us.
