That;s because they're ugly. well, after a while this bag grows on you to become an okay bag. If it were made with real suede and fur, you would have to pay a certain minimum price. but this bag is too ugly to pay 300.
I think I have seem something similiar at coach. I believe it had white rabbit fur and maybe some rhinestone accents to accent the white bag. although there is a similiarity, the coach seemed more attractive.
maybe it is the color, the size, cut. I just don't like it. You would be better off buying a Gloria Vanderbilt for maybe 40-50 (taxes, s&h included.) it's fake, inexpensive, and yet looks better.
They were somewhat big here in the Pacific NW last year - I think there were seen on celebrities at sundance. But really expensive for a bag that is going to look all matted after a couple of uses.
If I'm going to spend $$ on a bag I want it to last a little while, and look good doing it.
