i know the majority of us justify spending over 1K on a handbag because the designer is known for producing quality items. i like to do a lot of research before shelling out that kind of money on anything. before buying my latest bag then i looked at several other bags. when i read about someone's 1500 dollar bag falling apart on their first day of use then i definitely steered clear of it. i've been wanting to get a chanel bag since forever but i've read about the stitching on their latest cabas bag falling apart for some people. stories like that make me really question the quality of all their bags. for over 1K we should definitely get the top quality. has anyone ever had any horror stories about their high end bags falling apart way too soon? did u get to have it fixed at the boutique or did u not get any help?
