You are so right. A lot of these bags become the "it" bags because celebs are given them for free, for publicity. Then we go ga ga over them and rob our bank account in pursuit of handbag bliss.BorsaBella said:I read an article recently (I will try to find it) that the prices for handbags have gone up a certain percentage this year and the main reason is because the fashion houses CAN!!! It is crazy, we will pay whatever the price is for the latest 'it' bag!
The designers send over their latest bags to the celebs (free) they carry the bags, they hire paparazzi to photo them carrying the bags, sell to celeb mags and we all have to have it!
So back to the old, if you love it, then carry it. If not, its not worth the huge price tag.
lol i do this too! i will be looking around in a store and i will be attracted to the most expensive thing on the shelf or rack. when my mom looks at the tag she just kind of stares at me haha. i think it is just that we all get used to the prices after a while and it doesnt bug us so much. a few months ago i thought a juicy couture bag was really expensive now i am saving for a louis without a problem haha.I think good taste needs money to support. Whenever I went shopping, I would always picked up somehting that's the most expensive on the shelf. (I did not do this knowingly).
