Reason #2 Why We Love Bags: They have a low cost-per-use. You can spend a thousand dollars on a fancy dress and only wear it once or twice, but if you spend the same thousand dollars on a bag you love, you’ll use it over and over again for years.

    i totally agree with you……
    I looooooove bags….

  • Patricia

    Yeah, in that sense they are like a really good and comfy pair of shoes :)

  • rebecca

    Agreed. This is what I keep telling my parents when they question my bags.

    • annika

      indeed! this is what i keep telling my daughter, sisters and mom when they question the price of my bags.

  • FashionIsMyHobby

    Yes, cost per wear much better with handbags!

    Also, handbags and shoes “make the outfit”.

  • The Little Dust Princess

    That is one of the best reasons & I totally agree with it.

  • delaney

    haha. i definitely tell myself that every time i’m about to buy a new bag.

  • Mommy needs a new bag

    Good point – time to go get a new bag ;)

  • Millie

    Definitely agree and now I’m eying an $800 dress I bought five years ago and wore twice, wondering why I didn’t spend that money on a bag!

  • Maggie

    Totally agree!!

  • gacats

    I’m going to use this excuse!

  • Kat P

    This is so right. Now I want to go be economical and buy a new bag I will use for years and years. :)

  • Shopping Lady

    Absolutely agree. I would also do a cost per day calculation, a new $2,000 bag would only cost less than $1/ per day for 10 hrs, pretty easy to rationalize the purchase .

  • Candace

    That’s definitely one reason why I buy nice purses. Also, I plan to hand them down to my nieces one day. :)

    I really love these Prada dress – they’re very ladylike and proper, but still beautiful and with a hint of sexiness. Prada News They look very wearable and seems like it can go with any outfit! Although I’m not partial to houndstooth print in general.

    True. Sunglasses, haircut, bags and jeans are all something that can be ammortized down to nothing if you use everyday. And now that bags have such a high re-sale value….you can justify spending whatever you want …… Right?

  • joana

    i can fall in love with my cheap and not so cheap purses over and over again. :)
