S/O: of expensive clothes. Purses?

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm being genuine here, please someone tell me why you pay $450-1500 for a bag to stuff shit in?

I'm seriously into fashion and trend but to this day...I have yet to carry a label purse. Coach? Louis Vuitton? Michael Kors?

I could get a COMPUTER for that.

If I shopped right, I could buy a CAR! Lol.

I don't think it's wrong, I have my own ridiculous habit of high end makeup...I'm all for spending money on things you enjoy.

I just don't understand prioritizing, of all things...a purse.

Maybe also because I usually just carry my wallet. My ex-h used to laugh about needing to buy me a purse so he wouldn't have to keep his keys and wallet in his pocket. "I probably still wouldn't carry it." I'd tell him. They just seem so cumbersome. All I need is my wallet and some gloss. And MAYBE a powder. And I'm girly, I just get tired of carrying around crap I rarely actually use.

Disclaimer: This isn't a vent post...I'm seriously inquiring. I feel like I'm missing some secret honestly.

 My husband buys them for me, I don't replace them often and they last for years so in the end, they are worth it. We always can afford them.

What I don't understand is people who have like 40 of them and go into debt over it but hey that's their perrogative I guess

 I can afford them, but don't buy them. I have received several as gifts.  I love coach, some of my prettiest purses are coach,Love the Hobo's. I Love channel too. I like many other designers too. What ever strikes my fancy. I prefer to purchase properties ( land, homes) and businesses that earn income.  My DH is a Stock broker, and likes to spend money on me, fine baby, I love the gifts.  I'm building my own independent wealth, and its not in purses. Grins.
