As you know, most of the people who visit this forums or member of this forums are handbag addicts, right? However, do you really care with what brand it is? If yes, why? Why do you care so much? I've travelled to Asia before and when I was there I just bought a nice bag with nice models regardless of the brand name (Perhaps because there're lots of cute bags in Asia with cheaper price than in the U.S). I don't really care whether it is Gucci, LV or Chanel. Even people surround me also carrying regular type of bags. In Tokyo though, it's different. You can see a lot of people walking carrying Gucci, LV, etc. Then, in the U.S, it's more tempting to get a brand name bag. Is it because U.S doesn't have lots of choices on regular bags? Or is it because the regular bags price (that have cute shape) in the U.S is expensive? Or is it because people in the U.S have high level of income? (Compare with people from different part of this world). Do you think people love brand name bags because they live in a country where there's less criminal and economy is stable which makes them able to afford high class products?
