How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?

Recommended Posts

Tricky question, but good. I don't want to spend so much on a handbag that I don't have anything to put in it...:-) I would say the most I have spent on a handbag is $80. I would pay more if I REALLY liked it and I could afford it.

Not much at all really. I'd say $20 is about my average. If I really like it and it looks to be one of a kind $30 - $40, even for my "imitation" designer bags. I'm actually planning on getting in to making my own here in the next few weeks. I bought some supplies at the craft store, so I just have to revamp my sewing skills.

It depends on how much I like the purse. The most $ I have ever spent was $325 on a coach purse.

With the way I jam stuff in my handbags.....there is no way I could spend that much money. If I was more organized I would throw it down, but I can't seem to get my ISH straight.

i am guilty on spending 500 dollars on a dooney and bourke purse. My mom got me a 200 dollar Coach purse and I spent 150 on a Juicy Couture one. I have had some fake louis vioutton purses but none of the real thing yet!

 

 

My mom spent 1,500 on a Prada purse/wallet/coin purse/cosmetic bag set!!!! now thats bad!!!!!

I don't own any designer bags yet, but I if I had up to $500 to spend on a bag I would. The most expensive bag I own costed around $100; although I do have a few bags I made, which are priceless to me :)

This sounds scary..........I like it.:icon_cool

 

Actually, I am lemming a J. Crew purse for $169.00 right now....and think that is as high as I would go...

I'm just way too darn hard on shoes and purses to buy anything really expensive. Plus the fact that I like classic styles that won't go out of fashion next season....so like L.V. would not be for me at all.

$15. no really. I buy all my handbags used, or on ebay. I don't expect my bags to last very long anyway (though they do, for some strange reason since i abuse them to hell and pay nothing for them), and by the time it breaks I expect to be wanting a change anyway.

I spent 800.00 on a Louis Vuitton bucket bag. I think it was worth it. I have also recently spent almost 600.00 on a speedy 25 louis vuitton. I love them.:clap I want another one. I need counseling

The most I ever spent was $140 and it took me 4-6 weeks just to decide. If it's a classic style that will get used for years, it's worth spending more to get the quality.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
