With excess money comes the purchasing power of luxury items that indicate a social status that certain people covet. When owning high-end bags became a status symbol, a number of celebrities started spending their money just to be known they are proud owners of such items. During their public appearances, expect such celebrities to be holding their expensive bags with them.
One of these celebrities who are known to have a collection of such bags is Low Key Owner (LK), whose designer bags are often admired. Whenever she has to attend functions, LK would have a designer bag with her. Given her money and reputation, LK would never be caught with a replica or a very close imitation of any branded bag. Her bags could sometimes take as much limelight as she does whenever she attends functions. Moreover, LK generated an increase in the number of followers of her social media accounts because of her bag collection as well as her fashion sense.
As some people look up to LK as an icon, her outfit and accessory are always noticed. Hence, it is not a wonder that LK would be ahead in patronizing trends. Given that her friends know of some of her activities, they look forward to seeing her in her outfit and even her bag. In an event, the inevitable happened, as her friends noticed something peculiar. They asked LK why she has not been bringing with her any of her bags that she had custom-painted. They wanted to see the bags.
One of the trends internationally and locally is for artists to paint on designer bags. The idea is to make these bags jack up their prices, as a result of the handiwork of renowned artists. LK could very well afford such artistic services and thus, it was not a wonder that she was among the first to jump on this bandwagon.
The friends were surprised at the response of LK. With a sigh, LK said that she realized she was not happy with how the bags turned out after a while. LK felt that her designer bag lost its value with the painted design and worse, the paint has faded. Thus, she feels like the bags already came from a low-end market. Although it was too late, LK admitted that she regretted having her bags used as canvas. Joining the trend was not worth it after all.
