While shopping on a budget looks like the ideal way to go, we will always desire those expensive designer bags with prices in the mid four figure range.
I don't know what you earn monthly, but new bag lovers can attest to the fact that getting such bags is almost an impossibility.
It's such a huge financial commitment, that you'd have to think thrice before starting on that path. But here's the good part...
You don't have to entirely discard your designer bag lust and you don't have to sell your soul to get one either. You can always work your way up to your desires.
Testing the waters with less expensive luxury bags will help you decide if going all the way up is something you really want. You don't have to go cheap...I don't. But you can play within your budget a little bit. Get something that makes people stare and work your way up to becoming the woman you want to be, with loads of luxury leather bags in her closet.
Which would you prefer: spend a ton of money to get an old fashioned bag that'll last you 10 years, or spend a ton of money on a stylish luxury leather bag that'll last you 10 years?
You'd be surprised at how many people prefer the first option because of the belief that the second might be more expensive, even if the price difference is super small.
If your style of dressing is the old fashioned way, then sure the first option works for you. Some people are really comfortable with such. If you're one of them, then there's nothing wrong with that.
But for some others who prefer to be trendy and move with the times, it might be in your best interest to go for option 2.
It's important to be comfortable and happy with your fashion style. While some of us love to change bags every now and then, others can use the same for a decade.
So my recommended leather bag choice is one that's not just trendy, but can also last for as long as you want it to.
The Bag Everyone Wants
Let me ask you this: How often do you use bags? Answering this question will help you know the kind of bag to go for. If spending a lot of money on a luxury leather bag makes the hair on your head stand, then you might want to go for something you'll use frequently, instead of a bag just for special occasions.
With this in mind, trust me, the buyer's anxiety you feel with making such big purchases will cease to exist. Everyone feels this way, especially when making multiple big purchases isn't a regular.
Trust your instincts on this one. After all, you're the best person to know what kind of bags you'll use frequently and the ones you'll reserve for slaying at events.
That Perfect Bag
Are you waiting to get that flawless leather handbag that'll accommodate all your desires and satisfy all your fashion lusts? Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but you might wait a long time.
There's no flaw-free bag, and the reason is quite simple. We all have our different preferences. While I may have an issue with the zipper placement of a particular bag, you may probably just dislike the lining of that same bag.
Sometimes, it's very important to listen to the voice in our heads telling us not to get a particular bag. But, if the little voice shows you a flaw that's not enough to offset what you like about the bag, then you should probably go for it.
Not all bags will be perfect all through, and some come with more pros than cons. So my recommendation is one of our highly coveted bags with almost no blemish. Take a look.
