Agree with you!! It is hard to get into the luxury when you are used to paying under $400(ca/usd) for a bag. I don't know that I would spend the price for a Hermes. But I do find value in going up the scale to more "entry level" luxury designers like Chloe - one of my absolute favourites, in love with their designs. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy most of my MK bags but somewhere a long the line I try to go a little more towards "quality over quantity". Not saying MK bags are not good quality because most of them are, but also quality as in the value they bring to your wardrobe as a whole. Maybe a more expensive more versatile bag is better than 25 bags you can match with different outfits.Okey..so I was just sitting here by myself and thinking. I've slowly begun to find interest in luxury brands like Hermes, Chanel etc, and spend some time visiting and posting on their forums. Must say I loooove the scarves, jewelry, shoes, totally dreamy....but I just can't justify buying a lot of stuff just to please a SA in hope to be offered the holy grail; even if it is the ever beautiful Kelly at the price of tens of thousands of dollars. Some brands are sooo expensive, but I must admit that if I ever won the lottary I would run down the door to Hermes, and then take a swing by Chanel and MK. But as for now I only drool and dream online.. And I find myself returning over and over to MK with the large variaties of bags and colors, and the ever practical and wonderful saffiano leather. It fits me to the fingertips. Not having to worry about raincotes to fit my bag, or where I put it down. Like today being in the Zoo with my kids and the rain came, knowing it didn't matter if my selma got wet? And of course the luxury of being able to match my outfits with different bags without using the entire family budget. I don't see any brand fitting my needs the way MK does. Not yet anyway .. So I hope MK and TPF will be around for years to come, and I look forward to feeling my heart skip a beat for what may turn out to be my holy grail in the future
I am also getting so sick and tired of seeing so many fake MK bags!! It is disgusting! Just saw a blatantly fake Selma today! Definitely not good for the brand. I hope they get their whole image straightened out, I really don't want this brand to disappear! I was a true diehard fan.
