Seriously find someone in your life that could use $500 and give it to them - then buy a nice Kate Spade for yourself. If you don't know a nanny, or single mom with three kids, or someone with a disability - all just trying to make ends meet, then you need to branch out. You will feel so much happier and you'll have a lovely bag as well.

Hermès and Chanel have consistently been ranked a better investment than gold by economists. A jumbo flap Chanel might be a bit more but worth it. Also, if you know anyone in Oregon you can get them to pick it up for you at the local Nordstrom and not pay sales tax. Also the Chloe saddle bags and Stella McCartney are very chic imo.

Thank you all for your awesome suggestions!

I have been saving Nordstrom gift cards and other stuff so that I'll be paying very little out of pocket - but I don't think I need to explain any further or justify myself. Someone here said it right #unconciousbias.

I’ve done media management on 3 unscripted shows now, the last was a 3 year contract on a talk show. An earlier one I was embedded city subjects at sea for 4 months. I was a gaffer and key grip for a decade before that with occasional Cam Op gigs and did a bunch of one person crew unscripted content for clients along the way too. Often I end up doing the labor of 4 or 5 people while having 3 or more managers that just send emails. Any tips for protecting myself from this happening again?
