Conspicuous consumption

Random thought of the day while gazing off into space on transit:

Have you ever noticed how when you see someone with a Coach bag, it never matches the rest of their outfit? I guess they get the bag & love it so much that they drag it around 24/7? Or they love what they think people think of them for having an accessory known to be pricey? I often snicker a bit when I see a young woman wearing Uggs, sweats & carrying a Coach bag. If you want to look classy, that ain't the way to do it, ladies.


  1. What cracks me up is when you see someone on transit at 7:30 in the morning on their way to work/school with a shopping bag from a high-end store that contains their lunch. Are they trying to make you think that they've just finished shopping at [insert high end store name] earlier that morning?

  2. I looked up those bags and I think they are ugly!

    1. Yeah, I don't really see why anyone would pay a lot for them either. I don't mind a tag or logo somewhere on the bag to advertise who made it, but I'm not a fan of repeeated logo patterns like Louis Vuitton or Coach or various other brands. It just seems a bit... desperate.
