THE GUCCI GANG AND THE VUITTON VALAHURAS


I don't and I will never get people who go gaga or gago over luxury items such as Gucci and Vuitton.

I will not fucking spend more than P5K for a bag, or wallet.

Hello?! What's so special about it?

I actually think Vuitton is tacky. I don't like the design. Looks like wallpaper to me. It's not like their bags' shapes are special. It looks like any other bag. The color is bland. That colored one is so cheap. And why the hell would you spend P20,ooo for a bag? A bag is just something you need to carry stuff. Parang bumili ka ng supot na P20,000. And it doesn't even look like P20,000.

It's such a waste of money. Yeah, yeah, I'm sure the material is carefully crafted, it's super soft and very durable, but so is other less expensive brands. And the other brands look so much cooler. And what's so cool with showing up at an event and having the same bag as every celebrity there?

Even if I could afford an LV or Gucci, I would NEVER buy a bag that expensive. I would rather give it to charity, than blow it all on leather with wallpaper print.

Do you LV and Gucci people even give to charity and the church? Di ba kayo nakokonsensya sa pag gastos nyo? You guys are blessed to have money, and I hope you use it the right way. Manghinayang naman kayo sa pera na yan. Palibhasa di nyo pinaghihirapan yang pera kaya ganyan kayo makagastos. All you did was marry a rich guy, political racketeering, pocketing, payola and the like. Buti nakakatulog pa kayo sa gabi after burning that much cash on a bag.

And yes I'm sure it's a status symbol, but why a bag? Why not through a car? Or a house? Or jewelry? Does it make you look better? Does it make you a better person when you carry this bag? Does it mean you're smarter and a cut above the rest when you have this bag? Does it take away all your dirty laundry and negative traits? Will you have more friends? I so do not get it. It's useless, it's all for show, and all you people live in a party where you just kiss each other's ass and compliment each other when you feel like vomitting. You don't land a job or lose a job based on the brand you're wearing. It's what's inside that counts. Sounds corny? Yeah but it's true. I honestly am sure a bag can't guarantee you genuine happiness. But a spa and a good laugh at a movie will.

You know what's interesting too? The people who brag about their LVs and Guccis are new monied people. I'm sure they didn't want LV when they were in highschool. My old rich friends don't even have LVs. We hang out at their pads, they've got like 12 househelp and 8 cars, Patek Phillippes, Chanels, Rolexes, and they consider LV to be cheap looking. And these are people who were born with diamond studded spoons in their mouths. Not silver, not gold, but diamonds. They have millions in their bank accounts, and that's because they know how to spend their money. They spend on what counts. Nothing for show.

I hope you people think before buying these things. Think of how much other things it can buy. Think of donating to a charity or to church. Nobody cares about the brands you wear. And I'm sure you don't wanna be befriended just because you have the nicest bags.

Do something worthwhile please. Don't throw money away.

Tanga, that's why it's called a luxury item. While you will never get luxury bags, others will never get why you have the luxury of time to bash Gucci or Vuitton.

If you factor in the history, idea, packaging, advertising costs, employment, inflation, etc., you’d be surprised to know that a Louis Vuitton or Gucci bag is relatively inexpensive. And if you think only hard enough, which I doubt you are capable of doing and you may not know it, Louis Vuitton or Gucci makes people (like us) happy. Now, would you deny people their happiness? Isn’t that ungodly or unchristian for someone to tell people to give to the church while at the same time bashing other people for something that gives them happiness? How cruel of you!

You are hilariously idiotic.

20k for a Vuitton? Dear, tell me where to find one. I'll jump at it.

Your logic is so pocked with holes, it would embarrass Mike Enriquez's skin.

I know it's a luxury item, and even if I had the kind of money to buy them, I still won't. Every fucking peso counts, and I work hard for it. Unlike the people I know who do buy luxury items, they don't even have to work. They come from rich families or married rich men. And by the way, how quickly you react on my bashing LV when you won't even comment on giving to charity. And that was what the post was all about. You are clearly one of them.

Obvious bang di ko alam ang price ng lecheng LV na yan kaya nagkamali ako? Sorry ah, memorized nyo nga pala ang catalog.

You people are clearly the reason why I posted this in the first place.

Fine it makes you happy, but it's a fake kind of happiness. It makes you happy because you feel like you belong when you have these luxuries. But at the end of the day, all you have is your bag, and you're out a ton of money.

You think I'm cruel with my bashing you LV people? Wow, talagang dinefend pa ang mga naka LV. Luxuries will never provide anyone genuine happiness. Naka LV ka pa ba pag namatay ka? Well kung ganun plano mo, eh di good luck na lang.

People are not judged by what they wear, it's who they are. It's their heart that matters. Not the brand. A bag will not get you a better job or more friends. I'm sure you think otherwise, but it's the truth.

If you share your wealth and bring happiness to other people and still have luxuries, then well and good. But if you don't, makonsenya ka na lang. Pucha ang daming nagugutom jan, pero kayo bag lang iniisip nyo. Ang babaw sobra!

And obvious bang tinamaan kayo kaya kayo nag rereact ng ganyan?

Anonymous said...

lol. ang babaw mo rin sobra when you bash (envy?) people who can afford luxury items. pera mo ba ang ginagastos nila? pera ba ng mga mahihirap ang ginagastos nila?

oh i'm sure they do work for it. maybe not hard hard, but they don't just spend and spend. they have jobs as well.

walang pakialamanan. that's what makes them happy. oh and don't even comment on whether they really are happy or not.

if someone is very rich, where does he put his money? do you want him to give almost everything to charity? then, why be rich at all? you suggested to buy cars or houses instead, can they take these after they die? no?

i placed this comment not because i buy luxury handbags (i don't, i can't afford it), but because i can't resist reacting to your shitty post.

Pia M said...

E di, don't buy it. It's not as if there's a gun to your head FORCING you to buy the darned thing. To each his own, I always say. I myself don't care for LV, but I don't question why others buy it (although there's this new kind out now that's like almost white which i wouldn't mind owning!)
Kasi it would just make it seem like I was INGGIT to them (wink-wink)
As my friend says: walang basagan ng trip.

--- well, since you are so critical of other people's grammar, let me point out your mistake: it should be:

"...so ARE other less expensive brands"

Anonymous said...

I so do not get it.

Tsk! Tsk! You exposed your self far too much dear. You so do not get it. Apparently, the luxury bag owners do. Ignorance doesn't necessarily authorizes you to bash them.

but it's a fake kind of happiness.

Merriam-Webster can't even exactly define happiness. Who are you to say buying luxury items defines FAKE happiness?

Every fucking peso counts, and I work hard for it. Unlike the people I know who do buy luxury items, they don't even have to work. They come from rich families or married rich men.

Envy is part of human nature. It has always been. Konti lang siguro kilala mo na nakaka-afford ng LV no? Tsk! Tsk! Now, I do so get your point. XD

Let's see if this comment makes it to your post.

bashing101, i hear ya girl!

people can deny and fool others that their genuine need to own LV has little and nothing to do with their self worth, but psychology is always a great ally for it bloviates about the very nature of such behavior, that is a desperate cry for attention and a frustrated attempt to salvage what's left of their self worth, and a dire need to belong.

and if your choice of words are as classy as theirs, you would really need an expensive bag or dress to wipe out the filth that comes out of your mouth...

Eh pano ka naman nakakasigurong hindi tumutulong sa mahihirap yung naka-LV? If we follow your logic, pwede rin nating i-bash yung bumibili ng mga Guess, Fino at kahit Secosana na hindi tumutulong sa mahirap. Luxury ang Secosana para sa mahirap. Damn you Secosana Sosyalites!! Damn youuuuuuu!!!! You heartless Secosana addicts!!! Damn you!!!!

Anonymous said...

Then how come you judge these LV people as mababaw?
would you know kung nagbibigay sila sa charity?

Hasty generalization yan...
non sequitor yun!
it doesnt mean na if people buy these expensive bags eh mababaw na sila na tao (add all the stuff you said bout them...)

and what about the fake happiness? how would you know that? like yung mga sinasabi mu na old rich na bumibili ng patek ng antiques or those that collect what they consider valuable.. fake din ba happiness nila? subjective ang happiness no!
e kung masaya ka na sa paper bag edi ok diba?
if the LV people are happy with their expensive bags..then so be it...
dahil ba mahal at "bag lang naman yun", di na nakapgbigay ng true happiness?
sobrang illogical ng premise...

obviously tinamaan sila, kaya nga mega-reaction-paper ang mga yan eh. at talagang pinatulan nila ang "20,000" diba?! super babaw, nakakatawa ang pagka-stoopid nila. bwahahahaha.

ate, ilang payo lang po...
1. wag mo na lang silang pakialaman kasi hindi mo naman pera yung ginagamit nila sa pagbili ng louis vuitton bag na ikinakaputok ng butsi mo.
2. puno ka ata ng galit sa mga mayamang nilalang. magpasalamat at maging kuntento ka na lang kung anong mayroon ka. bawasan mo ang galit dahil hindi maganda ang maidudulot nito sa iyong kalusugan. baka atakihin ka sa puso.
3. wala na tayong magagawa kung gusto nilang bumili nun. pera nila yun. ano naman ang pakialam natin kung yung mga babaeng yun ay nakapag asawa lang ng mayaman? tsaka isa pa, hindi ata tama na mang-akusa ka ng ganun. kahit itanong mo pa sa mga mayaman mong katropa.

yun lang mo. naway maging maganda ang araw mo.

you are so shallow. as in super.

make a background check girl, and before you suggest links, make sure they are credible.

do you know how stained children's hour is? your links are very general which states that you are ignorant when it comes to these advocacy field as well.

there's nothing wrong if you can buy LVs and GUCCIs with your own money. You're just sayiong these cause you can't buy one. Shallow hypocritical basher-wannabe.

Vicki said...

Ok, let's get this straight, you are bashing people for spending money on luxury items instead of giving to charity? Call me selfish but I think people have every right to spend their money on whatever they want. I mean it is their money after all. I used to think like you and think that luxury items are such a waste of money. But let's be honest - if you were one of the fortunate people born into money and your relatives bought you all those luxury items you mentioned you would not sell them and donate the money to charity now would you? Be honest, because I would love to receive luxury items as gifts. So much better than a Target or Best Buy gift card :) Ok, that sounded ungrateful (I appreciate any gifts I get). My point is people have the right to their luxury items. By the way, your friends who have Patek Philippe watches.... why???? Are they much better than a Seiko? or a Swatch?

Anonymous said...

I so like what you wrote! I have one LV, but it's the Kennel carrier. I stopped myself from getting another one, kasi I realized mas bagay ang LV sa dogs ko. I wanna spend on myself naman. And did you know that Lolit Solis is a big LV collector, and not from greenhills ha.

wtf said...

i agree! walang preferential option for the poor mga taong yan.

like angelina jolie, mygosh, although she has so many charities to her name, and so much goody acts, its hard to believe that her choice for underwear costs around 200 dollars! kinda discredits her, although she deserves them after all the good she does, i cant help but think like, wtf? 200 dollars for a pair of underwear?!

carlosceldran said...

Amen.

Some people just don't look good with luxury goods.

I myself look silly holding any brand name anything.

Instead of buying Elvee, why not just have these supposedly fashionable people pay their household help more.

I am always horrified to hear about rich people in this country paying their maids less than Php3500.00 a month with only one day off a month pa. It's just gross.

Well, you don't sound too happy yourself. I own a Louis Vuitton and I sound much happier than you. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

pasig baby said...

i actually agree with you on this one. money is much better spent on the causes you listed rather than a luxury item that'll get used a few times a year.

however, have you felt what it's like to sling Gucci bag over your shoulder? can't explain it.

so maybe, if money isn't an issue, and you do your part for the community... is there much harm in spending on luxury?

Anonymous said...

I think LV and other luxury brands gives big salary and benefits to their employees so its really not right to say that they are not helping the poor people. Since their brands our known all over the world, they hire a lot of people to make their products durable and perfect. By hiring people, they are already helping dear.

Anonymous said...

Hmmm, let's see...

I am not a luxurious person and the concept of using my money for more gratifying things is not lost on me. I agree with you, and seeing all this poverty really tells me that donating is so much better.

However, it is an extremely difficult deed to change the "ugali" of people who CHOOSE to spend their money on luxury goods. It has everything to do with society (which, as we know, has been around as long as human brains have been big enough to function).

Good luck on your quest to convince these people to spend their moolah on charities. I think it's more 'pakitang-tao' when they do (to be PERFECTLY HONEST), pero at least meron. If it really IS from their hearts, then God bless them.

got this link from ceclie zamora's blog...

i don't really get why people spend so much money on this stuff...at the end of the day its not important anyway...

yeah...id rather give my money to the church or help someone get an education...god knows this country needs more people with college degrees.

flashing LV bags and all this gucci crap doesnt mean you're rich or better than everyone else....it just means you're tacky and materialistic

Love this entry! Some of those bags cost a fortune and the money could be better off spent on charities. However, if certain people achieve happiness through their expensive bags, then good for them. Personally, I'd never buy a bag over 5k unless it was luggage but I don't lecture my friends who buy expensive brands. It is their money and they have the right to spend it as they wish. If some rich guy's wife spends his money that way then that is between him and his girl. Cheers!

i just stumbled into this blog by mistake. but what the heck, i found it hilariously amusing.

actually, i am also not into buying designer bags because i SO DON'T HAVE THE MONEY.

if those people who own designer stuff feel so happy on their purchases, girl, just let them be. may pera sila eh!

at least when they spend 10 grand or more on a gucci or LV bag, you know that a part of it goes to the salary of the employees of gucci or LV shops that they buy from. so it's also like giving something to charity na rin naman.

kesa naman gumastos sila ng sampung libo para sa ilang kilo ng shabu na makapagdadala din naman ng kaligayahan sa kanila.

at least socially, legally, and morally acceptable ang cause ng kaligayahan ng mga naka-lv or gucci.

yun lang. :)

Nag react ang mga putang inang bumibili ng mga bag na walang ka kwenta kwenta. Ilang hayop ang kelangan patayin para lang sa gagong bag na to. Wala naman ka class class ang itsura, mukhang messengers bag pa ung mga iba. E ano naman ngayon kung nakakabili kayo ng LV or GUCCI bakit bagay ba sa mga pagmumukha niyo ung bag na dala dala niyo? Yuck tumingin sa salamin at kelangan niyo pang bumili ng LV para lang matanggap ng sambayanang naka LV. Puta nakakasuka.

And so what if Gucci and LV doesn't suit your taste? Settle for heartstrings na lang :D
