I love designer clothing... Milly, Tibi, Trina Turk, Theory, Chloe, BCBG, the list goes on. Little if any designer labels hang in my closet thanks to a strict budget, but were I to have the means, I'm sure I would splurge on a few of my favorite pieces. That's clothing. Bags are a completely different story.
I just don't understand designer bags. Sure, I appreciate their shape and luxurious materials and overall design, but the price tags are just not justifiable to me. Sooner or later they'll end up at the bottom of my closet along with all my other bags that have been replaced by newer, prettier models. I don't do fakes either. I mean, what's the point of that? But I do refuse to spend more than $80 on something that I know I'll only use temporarily.
My favorite solution? Francesca's Collections. If y'all have one of these near you, you must stop in. They have amazing bags that are stylish and trendy at great prices. Another great option is a boutique in town called KLa. I also scour TJ Maxx and Marshall's for purses that hit the mark on style without breaking the bank.
What are your thoughts on designer bags. Worth the splurge or totally not?
