I don't know exactly how to articulate this, but I grew up dirt poor, and when I bought my first decent suit, I felt like an imposter wearing it. It wasn't expensive but it was good quality and looked it. Shaming folks over what they wear is such an incredibly shitty thing to do.
I recently bought my first Kate Spade handbag at an outlet. Significantly reduced price, something ridiculous like 60%. Really, really pretty. It's been about a month, and I still haven't carried it out. It just feels strange, a weird feeling of guilt I can't quite express.
I was in the outlet, I could clearly afford the bag, and I asked myself "Do I really need this?" about a dozen times.

I just think the guilt we heap on people who have struggled (and still do struggle) fucking sucks.
As requested. So pretty. I think I *will* finally take it out tomorrow.
