The case of the $3000 purse!
No, I'm not kidding! My sister works for the city attorney's office and she just bought a knockoff of some really ugly designer purse. I was kidding her about it because mine came from a street fair eight years ago. (It's cute, kind of a hippie embroidered thing. I get a lot of compliments on it.)
Anyway, she says the ladies in her office actually compete with each other with their fancy designer purses and they pay $3000 OR MORE. Now I have heard about this on Sex and the City but I thought it was some goofy story made up for TV. Apparently some women really do this! And they're UGLY, too. I mean the purses, not the women.
