Designer Bags Now & Forever

Paying $2000+ for a single handbag may be inexcusable to some, considering perfectly fine disposable high street options are available. Yet, those who invest in at least one great quality handbag seem to have a sudden glimmer of glee, when 10 years down the track they realise the rent money they spent buying a frivolous material items, ain't so frivolous now.

At the Fall 2008/2009 Fashion Shows, fashionistas dugout their classic favourites with Chanel's gaining the most attention.
Although Victoria Beckham is not one to miss a mass trend, she has surpassed trendy "it bags" for timeless classics...can anyone say "Hermes"?? VB's got a eye for selecting dateless handbags from the Birkin to her new vintage Chanel and back to her current favourite Giambattista Valli bag.
Whether it be the Fendi Baguette, Louis Vuitton Speedy, Chanel 2.55 or the untouchable Hermes Birkin a classic bag will keep in style even when your daughters have daughters.

I'm a fan of buying things I really love and want. It has to be important.
Part of the process is stopping and asking myself: Do I really need this? Most of the time, I don't.
So it's ok to buy that $2,000 bag if you want, if you can afford it. But if you don't really need it, it's money wasted, even if you can afford it.
It's better to give the $2000 to a charity than to buy something just to have it.

i think it's okay to spend 2000 on one bag, maybe two in the span of 10-20 years but nothing more especially if you can't afford it. A classic chanel bag will last forever or even a louis vuitton as long as it's not a tacky monogram
don't u think?

@Seraphine- I used to be an absolute bag whore, and when i was cleaning out my wardbrobe, i realised that half the bags i havent really used, and half of them i don't even particulary like. So now i do what you do, and ask myself if i really need it or like it...or am i just buying it out of bordem or because its in fashion.

@Jen(MahaloFashion)- i agree, i think one classic bag adds intriguity to your handbag collection. I don't think its smart to go out and buy $3000 items on a $500 weekly income, but saving the money that you would spend on a lot of bag to buy one good bag that lasts you years is A-Ok in my book :)

I don't have that kind of money to spend on designer seeing as I'm still in school but investing in designer bags should be wise decisions.
