"Television to brainwash us all and Internet to eliminate any last resistance." - Paul Carvel

It's amazing how attuned...yet out of tune...your mind can become. In my case, the poor little thing seems to have been brainwashed by Balmain's exorbitant pricing ($12,500 for a jacket, $14,000 for a dress, $3,000 for jeans) to such an extent that it's first thought when faced with a $1,900 quilted leather handbag was "that's not a bad price"...meaning, albeit depressingly, that that's about standard for a designer bag these days and one would expect Balmain's bags to be as over-the-top pricewise as the rest of their wares.

Thankfully it's second thought was how completely unappealing said bag actually is...

    My threshold for what constitutes "expensive" has risen exponentially over the past few years. And yet, I don't think that the quality of my wardrobe is that much higher or that I wear stuff that much longer.

    Interesting how our perspective shifts along a sliding scale, eh?
