Personally I love Juicy Couture items. I own a few of the velour tracksuits (the terry feels funny lol) because they are comfy and they are very flattering on me . I would never pay retail for the tracksuits though, that's robbery. They're also versatile as you can wear them together or separate with jeans or a tee/tank. The jewelry is also lovely and it is a very decent price considering the fact that all the pieces come in a nice box and hold up very well (unless you're rock climbing or something). As far as the handbags go, my first "designer" bag was the Daydreamer and it has been EXTREMELY durable through college wear. I can say the same for my leather tycoon also. So it really is a matter of opinions, but Juicy Couture has definetely never let me down and I will continue to be a devoted fan!
