Today's Confession: My Fetish (I am Not Alone)

The word for today is fetish. Hmmm…what is a fetish? Well, according to The Free Dictionary online:


1. An object that is believed to have magical or spiritual powers, especially such an object associated with animistic or shamanistic religious practices.

2. An object of unreasonably excessive attention or reverence: made a fetish of punctuality.

3. Something, such as a material object or a nonsexual part of the body, that arouses sexual desire and may become necessary for sexual gratification.

4. An abnormally obsessive preoccupation or attachment; a fixation.

Well, I confess I have a fetish. Some of you may be disappointed because my fetish is not of a sexual nature. You can forget about #3 on the list above.

I have a handbag fetish. I can’t seem to get enough of them. I am rather selective though. I like designer handbags --- preferably Louis Vuitton and Coach --- but I am more into style and quality.

I have paid four figures for a handbag and as little as $5. A quality $5 handbag? Yes, you’d be surprised what you can find at a thrift store. Anyhoo, I surfed upon a blog that totally satisfies my handbag obsession. It’s called The Purse Blog.


I don’t know why some women obsess so about a handbag but I am amongst them. Check out the number of subscribers of The Purse Blog and you’ll see how many others feel as I do. I frequently check out the offerings on eLuxury but I actually buy a bag from them maybe every 18 months or so. Sometimes they offer free shipping which can be a great saving.

The Purse Blog also gives info on handbags (especially the fake designer bags) and provides info on bags rocked by celebrities. They even posted that pic of Lindsay Lohan slumped in her vehicle. I don’t think I’m as obsessed as they are because I really don’t care about the bag Lohan’s wearing when she’s in that condition, okay?
