I think if you want to splurge yourself with a designer bag, you should go with Chanel. It's everlasting and the price is more reasonable compare to the other high end bags. Plus you can use them both for dressing up or down. Chanel looks good on anybody no matter what is your style.
I don't own any luxe bags yet. Mine are Linea Pelle, Isabella Fiore, Steve Madden, LSS, Kenneth Cole, B. Makowsky, Furla, Nine West... I tend to not want to spend over $200 for a handbag, but that may change one day. I don't mind the idea of saving up for a luxe bag, should I find one that I feel I absolutely cannot live without.
I do not own any designer bags, and probably never will. When people here tell stories about the decreasing quality and increasing pricetags, that little angel (or devil) on my shoulder tells me no. I do have a love for Saddleback Leather awesome thick leather bags, though. And I think it will stay that way. :-)
So, no bags of mine cost more than 600 dollars.
well, my obsession with higher end bags started slowly and I buy only on sale times....
I started with Fossil brand bags...and then realised, and then I moved to Marc by Marc Jacobs...
I think Fossil is great if you want good quality for a reasonable price....
I don't have any high end purses. I'm just dipping my toe into owning Dooney&Bourke, Coach, Fossil, and even Guess. I love Fossil, and D&B, they just feel right! I'm educating myself so that when I see a real item at an estate or thrift store I know if it's real or fake.
And yes I have some very low end bags, but they are gradually walking away
I'm new to the site. I am indeed a purse lover but I'll admit there isn't a bag in my "collection" that exceeds 85 bucks. I am a college student 20 yrs young, with a small min. wage job on weekends. The majority of my money goes towards saving for tuition, food and clothes--bare necessities. I see many of you, well most of you are into LV, Gucci, Fendi and other major high-end designer bags. Well do any of you own bags of the total opposite....lets say...Nine West, Tommy Hilfiger, Steve Madden, Baby Phat---brands of that caliber? Let's go a little lower Payless purses, Walmart purses ? Or are you simply only into high-end bags?
I have got few, and they are really not good, old fashioned.
yes actually i find interesting bags from zara, united colors of benetton and h&m. regarding the high end contemporary, i don't think that it necessarily means that high end bags are "better" than the contemporary ones. the quality of some premier designers have been decreased and some of their designs looks really gaudy to me. so I think it doesn't matter as long as the leather is good quality and the design is nice. but counterfeits are quite a whole other story. i hate anything fake and i'd rather buy a no name bag, rather than buying a knock off.
D&B and Coach are not high end? I'm not sure about that...but if that's the case, then sure, there's a Coach that I'm considering. The rest of my bags all happen to be high-end, but I buy off auction sites, self-authenticated. I tend to buy new, but manage to spend less than $450 on average for a single bag.
