Two years ago, I asked you all what you thought of designer bags for children. You shared a wide array of comments, and the resounding theme in the responses was that you should get a designer bag for a kid when they are able to appreciate it. In my post, I shared that I wanted to get my goddaughter a bag, but I never did. Fast-forward two years, and I actually did buy her a bag, the yellow Gucci Disco Bag for kids above, that I am going to give to her when I see her in a few weeks, which brought me full circle on this topic.
I’ve seen a lot of photos of kids with designer bags, and I’m not talking tweens–I’m talking toddlers. Mini Louis Vuitton Speedy bags, tiny Chanels and petit Dior bags are being carried by young children whose parents are wealthy enough not to miss the cash. Who am I to judge how people spend their money? I run a designer handbag site, after all.
What I did start to think more about is when you truly appreciate a bag. I’d like to think when I got my first bag, a Coach bag, I appreciated it. But the truth is, as I keep getting older, I appreciate everything more and more. I didn’t appreciate the bags I was able to buy ten years ago, when we started PurseBlog.
So I want to ask you all again, because maybe your stance has changed or you didn’t see the article the first time: what do you think of designer bags for children?
