Woman embezzles millions, buys dozens of Louis Vuitton purses



So, last week a Casselberry bookkeeper named Lori Julian was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison for embezzling $7 million from her company, William C. Webb Co., in a wire fraud scheme. No, wait, don't leave, you're still on Deal Divas.

Here's the thing. She apparently bought A LOT of stuff with this stolen money, items she was forced to forfeit, including three Lexus cars, a 24-foot boat, six jet skis, and, wait for it... wait for it...



I've never owned a Louis, unless you count the $20 imitation Cherry Blossom number my friend Summer brought me back from luxurious Canal Street in New York City, so I don't know about their glory. But even if you did have millions to blow, isn't 63 of the same brand excessive? Wouldn't you want a little variety? Throw in a Coach here, a Dooney & Bourke there, a smattering of Kate Spade throughout. I dunno, though. Are Louis Vuitton purses worth handbag monogamy?

Not that I'd ever embezzle money and buy purses, of course.  Simply speculation of the fashion sort.
