  • heck no its more fun to spend my money on my chinldren then on some stupid bag. if i need a bag i can get a nice one for a reasonable price that looks just as good. i refuse to pay big money for a brand name.

  • No I don't. I am satisfied with the wear I get from a nice quality bag. I'd rather spend the money on a comfortable pair of shoes. :)

  • I have quite a few designer handbags, but most were given to be by my mom. I used to buy them all the time, but now I'm not so into it. My style is more boho/hippie than anything, and some of the designer bags kinda clash with that. I carry them sometimes, though. Plus, I've come to think it's tacky to wear designer things with the actual label or logo on them. I always think it looks like someone is trying to advertise. While I buy designer clothing items, I try to find the ones without the name clearly printed for all to see. I buy it for myself and for the quality, that's all.

  • A backpack works better for me. I'm not a purse person, never have been; nor do I care about labels of any sort for the sake the label itself. I agree with you, OP, about buying for yourself and for quality, though. I just don't gravitate to anything girly.

  • No, why should I spend more on a purse than I have in my wallet or bank? This has never made sense to me.
