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.

I hate logo anything.....I dont want C or LV all over my garments. To me it looks trashy regardless of its cost. The most I ever spent on a purse was 50 its an eggplant colored organic hemp purse from etsy. I spend a lot on my jeans(no junk all over them) and a few pairs of shoes...frye boots....I have a pair of el naturalista red mary jane pumps...and some sanuks. I wouldnt spend 400 on any one item. I buy my kids too much stuff lol

 I love purses!  I buy them on ebay or at the coach outlet for cheap and my Marc Jacobs was a gift.  The cheap bags don't last and are a waste of money.

I'm not into name brands either. I don't get it!
They are hideous to me.
I think the only brand I seek is Ed hardy.

I'll spend money on a good bag.  I like bags, but I don't buy them often.  I'll spend money on them though because of the quality.  A good quality bag will last you forever.  My mom has a Gucci bag that is over 25 years old that still looks brand new and has been worth every single penny she spent on it.   I have several bags that are 15 years old that are in fantastic condition.

Why waste you money on makeup? The shelf life of make up is much shorter then a purse. Just playing devils advocate

My DF bought me a coach purse in Japan (not in the PX) and they had an insane sale and got it for more then 75% off... The most I bought for myself was 200 dollar pumps from Steve Madden... I wore them any chance I could so now they're worn out and I had to scrap them... Other ten that I live within my budget... But for women who can afford it without it hurting them the rest of the month then more power to them
