Pursuing Ridiculousness


Purses make sense. If society deemed it acceptable, I would totally rock a man purse of some kind. They hold your shit – period. I always have my pockets full with wallets, phones, cameras, headphones, change, receipts etc., and my jeans would probably appreciate a little relief. With that being said: I dislike designer purses. A lot.

It all started when someone I know got one of these Coach patchwork handbags. I saw it, with my eyes, then heard the price… and there is just no logical connection between the two. How can you tell me that this thing looks good? Clearly the lead designer on this project is a home ec teacher who brought in the scraps from past purses and assigned a project to her 7th grade advanced sewing class.

How about this beautiful piece? Sure, you could pay off your credit card debt, buy a 73″ HDTV, buy 2,000 lottery tickets, a million other things that make more sense… orrrrr you could have a purse that looks like it was a designer collaboration between Liberace and the cast of ‘Hey Dude’ and is begging for you to lean over to adjust your shoes while on an escalator.

Or this expertly designed leather sack.

So ladies, I understand if you want to splurge on a nice purse, don’t get me wrong. But please, let it be under $136.45, and please don’t let it be a visual monstrosity, and please don’t buy it because it has the biggest or most numerous or most recognizable designer logo. Thank you.

    That’s pretty bad, but not as awful as the Louis Vuitton atrocity last year. You could by a Porsche with that cash! Most important part of that article–“the bags have sold out worldwide.”
