Most ordinary women religiously take care of their bags, especially if they are as expensive as the much-coveted Hermes Birkin.

Some celebrities, however, could (apparently) care less about keeping their Birkins in tip-top shape.

A newly single Kelly Osbourne was spotted at the airport in London toting around what used to be a classic-looking black Birkin.

But, thanks to all the stitched patches of smileys and funny quips, all the sophistication is now gone.

And then, of course, there’s that slightly cryptic Birkin that Kanye gifted to Kim.

The bag shamelessly displays a nude artwork by George Condo. We still can’t figure out what the artist (and Kanye) both wanted to convey in this so-called work of art.

If your creative juices start flowing and you suddenly feel the urge to paint, stitch, or draw on your purse, we strongly advise that you stay away from your expensive bags.

Instead, apply your creativity to more budget-friendly totes, such as the options below from ShoeDazzle. This way, even if you mess it up, it won’t hurt too much!
