When I have extra $$$ I rather get a handbag over a skirt. The reason being is your handbag you wear all the time. If you get pregnant gain 5lbs your skirt may not fit or look right but, handbag regardless it hot. Just my deep thought of the day and one of the reasons why I do not mind spending more of a nice designer handbag. Also handbags stand out more than your earrings. People accutually see your handbag first. That is my deep thought of the day of handbags.
