BE HONEST: do pricier items look nicer to you?

For example: do you think that bag suddenly looks much nicer because you noticed the price tag is higher? Whether you can afford it or not isn't the question.

  • No sorry ugly bags are ugly bags lol price will not make them less ugly. I also have this thing about how if the cost of it is even close to my car or house payment then i really dont need it, if i have that much extra around i need to make an extra payment on my car :)

  • No, on some items yes but most of the time price does not = nicer.

  • No/not always. Some of the new Juicy bags look like fake plastic to me and some of these boldly colored bags look cheap to me. For me it's not the brand but the quality or look of the leather, the hardware, etc. If you go to Italy and rummage through the flea markets you can see that a beautiful leather bag doesn't have to be name brand. I owned a Gucci bag and it fell apart probably because it was that vinyl stuff!

  • No. I go for style and rather than price. But I see what you mean. Sometimes the leather looks thicker if the bag costs more.

  • No the price doesnt make it look better to me. In fact I am much happier if I find something super cute and it costs less that I expected :) I dont see the attraction of a Coach bag or whatever lol but thats just me.
