Fergie at Sex and the City Premiere

You can see from this video why I didn’t record any more of these and why I had no idea what Fergie actually said. So I told her I would check out her bandana bag and feature it on Bag Snob. Well, I was caught up being star struck and didn’t really consider that her bags would be inappropriate for our snobby site. For some reason, I thought her bags would be snob worthy because I imagine her disposable income would be such that would allow for good taste, but I was not thinking clearly and forget that her disposable income comes from doing things like whoring herself out for Kipling. I am not going to put a picture of it up, but it is a tote using bandana fabric, so you can conjure up your own visual as you please. I did give her my card and I am hoping she threw it away because I would hate for her to have to read this. Sorry Fergie!! I will promote your song for the movie because you should keep your day job. And you are super hot and indeed have lovely humps.

    All you’ve proven with this post is that money buys style, period. It’s not brains (obviously, I see some of the grossness that gets posted on here), it’s not some innate sense of beauty, it’s just money. If you’ve got it, you should buy yourself some style, if not, you should wallow in your tacky hell.

    On second thought, you’ve also proven that money can’t buy class or social graces.

    Don´t know who this Fergie actually is. The only Fergie I know, is the one from England,the ex wife of Prince Andrew. This comment needs no answering.

    I have to tell you, this post made my day. Fergie is a high-larious mark in the pop spectrum. I respect her talent (and taste in men) but her style is straight country. I mean, she’s an ex meth-addict from Hacienda Heights who once peed on herself. Haha.

    I’m in total agreement with the first comment

    by Marie. It’s no different than lottery winners

    whose newfound windfall doesn’t translate into

    giving them more class or style. Money doesn’t

    necessarily lead to social grace.

    not everybody can buy Loubs, Chanel, YSL, Hermes or other expensive designer items. people should also consider other people’s financial means. those LeSport bags might not be “classy” for this site but those might be for other people. i read your blogs all the time but the items you consider worth keeping are the items that most of us cannot afford. you consider a $500+ bag a “CHEAP” thrill but not for most masses. some people can still look classy with lesser valued items.

    Perfectly said! Thank you!!! I thought the same thing when you mentioned the bag in your post yesterday- but after seeing it for myself, I felt embarrassed for her. The song does rock, and so does Fergie… but she should not design bags! Bravo Kelly for staying true.

    People… the site is called Bagsnob….Does that not tell you what you are in for. It is meant in fun.

    The Fergie bags are that terrible regardless of price.

    BTW the Bagsnobs are fair, they have plenty bag things to say about $5,000 bags (i.e. Fendi).

    I cannot believe you wrote that:

    ‘I imagine her disposable income would be such that would allow for good taste’

    I am sorry darling but you just proved your own class with this little comment.

    I am not defending her bags,have no idea what the one she’s talking about looks like but I’ve seen some of her designs and I thought they were ok. Not brilliant but comparing them for example to LV’s Motard bag made them look like a work of a genius. Hefty price tag will never buy you class. You’re either born with it or not and even all the money in the world won’t help you get it.

    hilarious! i’m so sick of all these female celebrities who think they can design handbags just because they’re famous and use their celebrity status to market them. i haven’t seen fergie’s handbags, but i can only imagine….

    Kelly: You are right that the bags Fergie designs are not great and really shouldn’t be featured on any good bag blog.

    BUT the way you worded your post gives the impression that a woman’s disposable income dictates her taste. REALLY? You mean to say money acquires taste? I beg to differ. Not everyone needs to carry a Birkin to exude style. In fact, there are many women with the kind of disposable income that would afford them all that Hermes & Chanel offers, yet their tastes leave a lot to be desired.

    Everyone should try to dress their best within their monetary capacities. I have been a loyal reader of this blog and it is easy to tell that neither you nor Tina have day jobs. Bravo that your partners make enough to support such extravagant housewives such as you two. Of course, that doesn’t mean you previously did not have jobs, nor does it mean that you weren’t simply born into money. Also, your blog should earn enough to support your bag indulgences. Nevertheless, it does not automatically give you the right to belittle other people or to associate money with taste or to call any bag under $1K a ‘Cheap Thrill’. This kind of attitude speaks of nothing but ignorance of the world we live in and I am disappointed that college graduates such as yourself would speak in this manner. If it came from Paris Hilton’s mouth, it would be different.

    Before others start bashing me for leaving such a comment or advise that I should simply not read the blog if this is how I feel, let me just say that by writing a blog and catering to the public (we are the ones who made you who you are to the media and gave you the authority on purses that you command today)you are opening yourself and this blog to criticism, constructive or otherwise.

    I just hope you see this criticism as constructive, because that’s how it’s meant.

    The bag snob girls generally bash people who mistake cash with class. So I am surprised at Kelly’s statement, too.

    That said, I have seen the Kipling bag. They are awful and is another example of a star who thinks they can design. Love Fergie but keep your day job!

  13. May 30, 2008 / 9:41 pm

    Well said, Rachel. I couldn’t agree more heartily. I love reading Bag Snob daily and, for the most part, appreciate your blog’s honesty (good and bad) when it comes to designer bags but I felt the tone of the Fergie’s post was DEFINITELY off from how you guys usually rag on designers.

    I probably wouldn’t like Fergie’s bags but, as a working girl, I don’t appreciate the classism that reeked from your post: “I thought her bags would be snob worthy because I imagine her disposable income would be such that would allow for good taste, but I was not thinking clearly and forget that her disposable income comes from doing things like whoring herself out for Kipling.”

    You know, I hate the use of the word “whore” or “slut” associated with any other activity than prostitution. It sounds too much like mean girls ruining another girls life in high school. If my own daughter (age 18) dares use these words around me I get out the Ivory soap and issue threats of washing her mouth.

    Hi girls,

    Woah! More bag snob bashing– I was at the Neiman Marcus beauty and bubbly event all day yesterday and had not had a chance to review all the comments until now.

    Rachel– your comment is the most constructive and struck a chord with me. Most of what we write is in cheeky fun but I do see your point. I know we are not the norm and that most people do not consider a thousand dollar bag a cheap thrill but this is the way we’ve shopped since college. We had parents who allowed us the leisure of this lifestyle but we also worked our butts off after college until we got married. So yes, we do know the value of money 🙂 And OUCH! Paris Hilton!?!?! You know where to stick it!

    We started the blog because we love bags, but all bags are not created equal. We generally go for well made and timeless bags that unfortunately costs a bundle, but that’s not to say I do not have $20 bags from Target– I do. I just bought the 100% natural organic cotton tote to use this summer. I felt it was totally snob worthy and adorable. (You must go check it out, it has hot pink letters that say 100% organic and is the perfect summer tote)

    I agree with all of you that we should be more responsible in our comments because we are so widely read but at the same time… we do this for fun and if it is no longer fun, we would probably stop doing it 🙁

    Which would be the saddest thing ever because we love you guys and love writing the blog!

    So, I guess what I am saying is, we will commit to being more responsible and socially conscious in our comments but would like to keep the cheeky, silly and snobby-in-fun tone of the site 🙂

    Agreed? xoxo

    Tina: Agreed! Thanks for taking my comments the way they were meant to be taken. You should definitely keep the cheeky & fun-snobby tone because that’s what earned you readers in the first place.

    All I was trying to point out is not everyone has similar disposable incomes to consider, say a $600 Botkier bag, a cheap thrill. And I’m sure you agree money & taste do not necessarily go hand in hand. 🙂

    Hi Tina,

    Thanks for getting in touch about this-shame Kelly, who after all wrote this post, didn’t bother-I don’t think it’s about the money (though Kelly’s tone made it sound like it is) but about respect for other people,her comment wasn’t constructive in any way,she just slagged Fergie off using the most vulgar words-I don’t think thats right or classy. I love your blog,I know you’re cheeky and it’s great to read your posts but this one is unacceptable for me.

    Kelly, I know what you mean. You state that you weren’t thinking clearly when you thought her disposable income would dictate her taste.

    I for one am also surprised she would do such an unattractive line of bags considering in her songs she’s always going on about one luxury designer or another.

    I think Tina was great .. you have a good sense of humor and also gread style.. sorry for Kelly though that she are like a big fat whale so maybe she thought that just the Berkin bag would help her gain the class
