You know, I don't care if I had Bill Gates-Warren Buffet kind of money I just can't see spending some ungoddly amount of money on a handbag/purse. If it's over $ 50.00 I'm not going to be buying it. I about threw up when I saw that woman on the Real Housewifes Of New York go out and pay $15,000 for a bag..OMG!!OMG!!OMG!! I just wanted to slap the crap out of her!! Go get a cheap $40.00 bag at Target and donate the $14,960 to a charity..Some people are so self-centered and concered about how they appear to others. It's all really kind of sad when you think about it. WoW...did that come off as all judgey...is judgey even a word?? I didn't think so. LoL.. Ok, how about judgmental...didn't mean to sound that way.... much!
StormRyder, I could not agree with you more. I think my last handbag came from Meijer. I absolutely think spending big money on handbags is insane. I abuse my bags so much. My sister paid a couple of hundred dollars on one of them Coach bags which was even the sale price. I tell her all the time how insane that is.
A big leather across the body bag that I bought in TK Maxx a few years ago for the princely sum of... £12.99 (less than $20). I'm sure it would have been more but it was missing a price tag and the checkout person just said the first price that came into her head, because there was a queue behind me and it was nearly closing time
If I had the money I would happily spend - say - $100 or $150 for a good quality leather bag but I can't see much point in spending any more. And $15,000 is just bonkers, IMO.
Just yesterday I purchased my dream handbag. I spotted it a few years ago in an Oprah magazine. When I looked it up, it sold for $600. Not an amount even close to what I consider appropriate for a handbag. But, yet it's always called my name. It's a Brahmin Toasted Almond purse. It's Italian leather and has gorgeous warm colors. I have been deligently searching on eBay for years now, waiting for the right purse, the right price and the right time. It all came together yesterday morning. This particular purse retails for $355. The wallet retails for $155. I got both brand new with free shipping for $189. I can't wait to get it.
I am not typically a name-brand buyer, however, I came across a well-worn, dark brown woven leather Fossil bag on Ebay, and I paid a whopping $8 for it, and that included shipping. It's a bit smaller than I'm used to, but I like it very much. The size fits just what I need. I've owned many bottomless pit bags in my day, you know, the ones that hold everything including the kitchen sink On more shopping trips than I care to remember, it was always, can you hold this? can I put this in your pocketbook, until I was walking around with what now was a 50 lb bag. So glad those days are gone.
My very favorite is a large tote bag/purse with a pink and purple image of Tinkerbell on the side. It's black, but I think it's made of canvas, very cute and very easy to carry around, plenty of pockets near the top to keep organized with. I've had it forever, it seems, so I can't remember how much I paid for it.
I've got a few other handbags too. I just don't carry them as much

I definitely have a current "fav" handbag. It's a large red leather bag with plenty of pockets, including a special one for my all important diary. It has a shoulder strap and is excellent for traveling. The other special thing about my handbag is that I bought it from my friend's company (Konev) which is New Zealand based. They have really innovative designs and use great colors. In the past I've tried small handbags but, for me, they don't work, so I'm sticking with my large bag!
Carine Roitfeld the glamorous editor of French Vogue is known never to carry a handbag. And no I have never seen pictures of her with a briefcase, holdall, platic bag. So I'm curious - does she have someone...

I have a pair of black Steve Madden boots I bought in Brooklyn at a huge bargain for $25 about 7 years ago, and even though the zippers are all broken, I keep wearing them. I have bought $90 replacements, so it...
