What do you all think about buying expensive purses such as Coach, Luis Vaton, Gucci, and so on?

I think it depends on how often you change your bag and your personal style. I like to have one current designer bag on hand always.

Personally, I love designer handbags.  I don't change often (like to get my $$$$'s worth of wear out of them ) so my husband buys me one each year. Currently, I'm carrying a Louis Vuitton, but will be looking for something new by Christmas time....

I personally love Coach bags.  I have 3 right now.  I think...why not splurge on a purse?  Its perfectly normal for a woman to spend 100 or more on one outfit and only wear it once...so why not splurge on something you carry everyday!?

I love the Dooney & Bourke bucket bag!  I have to admit though that I'd never spend that much on a purse.  I will, however, spend $30 on a "replica".    LOL.

Hey Amber... if you're still in WV and ever come up to Morgantown there's a place that sells replicas.  Haven't been there myself yet but I've heard they have a great selection of DB and LV... also replica jewlery.  PM me and I'll tell you what I know if you're interested.

I love Coach Bags, they last forever  and they never go out of style. I would much rather spend money on a designer purse that will be in style next year than an outfit that will not be. I'm a purse junkie anyway.
Life is a journey, Enjoy the ride.

Oh, I love handbags! Ill happily spend 100 dollars (or the equivalent) on a really good bag - however, Im not label conscious at all. I want the proper function for what Im going to use it for, and quality.

My favourite summer vacation bag is an Arnton bag from England, it is made of washable canvas, is easy to carry all day in the heat and Ive had it for almost 20 years - it still looks as good. This bag appears in a James Bond movie, even, in Licence to Kill Carey Lowell takes a bag with money to a guru at a meditation center, and the bag is: an Arnton bag. Slightly larger than mine.

My favourite winter bag is a black leather Unica by Miramare (anyone ever heard of it?), it cost me 99 brittish pounds on New Bond Street in 1995, and has room for most things I need. It has a wonderful suede lining.

Ive seen the ads for Coach bags. They look like something I would like, but Id have to travel somewhere to find one, thats for sure!

Coach bags are wonderful, they are multistyled. Can be very casul, sporty and yet perfect to take with you on a night out on the town. I'm a huge fan of laptop bags for some reason. :) hehehehe

Mmmmm Coach.

My brother of all people got me hooked when he bought one for me about 8 years ago.  They're classicly styled, they never wear out and the leather only gets more beautiful with use.  They're addictive though, so are the wallets!  I recently sold about 5 of my Coach purses on eBay to make room for new ones.

I really want a HOBO bag, the one with the dark brown leather, and the pretty pink inside. My sister has it, and I am so jealous! That might be something I have to splurge on.

I own a Coach purse. It's small, black, and goes great with every outfit. It's the "perfect" purse that everyone should own.

However, there are plenty of other small, black purses that go great with every outfit. The Coach label doesn't mean that this is the one to own. (by the way, I got it for my 18th birthday from a cousin who used to work at Coach)

I own a lot of no name purses that are just too cute to pass up, including a nice little pink one with the Hello Kitty logo... I am a Hello Kitty addict! Never paid more than thirty dollars for a purse, but I'm sure that if I would have seen the Coach I own now I might have bought it if I had the money, or a purse similar to it if I had fallen in love with it.

I don't personally have a problem with "fakes" either. I just don't own any becuase I dont like the look of most "designer" bags, Such as LV and D&B.

I think expensive handbags are totally worth it, if that's want you want, I'm still in school but when I can afford them I will buy some. I don't have a problem with fakes though, I would splash out on classic monogram but the fad-ish ones like the white LV I would simply get a fake, I wouldn't mind a fake Balenciaga or Chloe Silverado because they aren't as common as the LV bags!

My mom, sister, and I have loads of Coach purses!  They're great purses and they last for a long time!  We only purchase the classic ones so that you can carry these forever!  I recently purchased a Juicy Couture purse, and I happen to LOVE these bags!  I will be purchasing more bags from them in the future!
