I've noticed a lot of comments in this forum to the effect of "once I tried X (more expensive designer), I could never go back to Y (less expensive) designer". I have never felt that way at all. I owned a LV before I owned a Coach. My first designer bag was actually one of the most expensive I have (an 85th Anniversary Gucci), then I got my first LV, then I got my first Coach, then I got my first Tokidoki. I love the bags I love and have never seen less expensive as less appealing BECAUSE of being less expensive. I love the LVs I have, I always loved the mono pattern and I do think they are well made. But I reluctantly pay the price because if I want it, that's the only option. But do I think coated canvas should be more expensive than a great quality leather bag like my Coaches? No way. Does having an LV or Balenciaga keep me away from Coach ... or Fossil... or Tokidoki... heck, even some Lesportsacs, no way. Just curious how people feel on this one. Do you only go up in price or do you love what you love regardless of price?
