(Disclaimer: I know some may disagree with me, and I welcome that! For those of you who love Baby Phat because of the price and consider it a great value or Hermes and consider it a great value because of its timeless style you can wear for decades, I dont mean to offend. I am just genuinely curious and would like to hear other's opinions on this!) There are so many different kinds of bags being made these days. From both ends of the spectrum, there are bags from Baby Phat, and way on the other side, there are bags from Hermes. In my opinion, I think neither of those bags present a good overall value for what you pay but I must say that while I am not fond of Baby Phat, it is perfect for the gal who doesnt want to spend a small fortune on a bag and is perfectly happy with pleather. I do lust after Hermes and it is not only the perfect bag to many women but is also the epitome of beauty, high fashion, and classic appeal in the form of exotic skins and luscious colors. That being said, I'd like to reiterate that while some of these bags may be beautiful and high-priced or cute and low priced , I dont think that either one really qualify as a good value. So I got to thinking, which bags do offer the best value? How is a value in terms of bags quantified or qualified? In trying to answer my own questions, I think that a bag is a good or great value not only in terms of how many times you wear it, but also in terms of how long you can wear it. So I ask you, which bags do you own or would like to buy that you think are the best value and bang-for-your-buck and why?
