purse envy

Jealousy vs. envy

Jealousy = when you feel threatened by other people wanting what you have. If If you see your partner chatting with an attractive stranger, that is jealousy.

Envy = when you want something someone else has. If you lust after your friend’s BB-8 purse, that’s envy.

However, common parlance often conflates the two, and language usage is by consensus, not regulation - it’s not like people aren’t gonna know what you mean if you swap them, so don’t stress over it.
