You are now forced to toss it aside, because you figure all who see you with it will assume you are trying to be one of them! THEY RUINED IT! I can’t keep ahead of these kids. I’m not trying to be cool and with-it, but I can now never imagine carrying a Couch purse with the “C”s on it, any  silver jewelry from Tiffany’s nor compete with my niece’s Tori Burch ballet flat collection!
