How do guys feel about Girls buying expensive handbags: Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gyvenchy, etc.?

I love my designer bags I only buy one once a year and if Im no longer reaching for the bag I sell it... but My boyfriend doesn't see the point in buying such expensive bags... I just want to hear thoughts

  • I think it's stupid. When I see all the dumb stuff women waste money on. It makes my head hurt.

    But it's not abnormal. Can't really get mad. If your interested in fashion and that's what keeps you happy then keep dropping obscene amounts of money on those weird products.

    But I will say I have a lot more respect for women who don't always go with real, designers and just go with whatever works for them. There are certain aspects of it that I can understand but I still think it's a huge waste of money.

  • It's a huge waste of money. You can get 10 awesome bags for the same price. You are just buying the label... not very smart

    • Yea thats what I use to do buy handbags year round but one day I saw a designer bag I really like and I was like well if I stop buying all these smaller cheaper handbags and just buy one nice designer bag each year I did the math and I was spending about the same year Round for all the bags I was buying I reduced my clutter sold most of them donated some currently only own 2 bags

  • If that's your thing, and you can cover your bills and aren't going into debt to buy them, it's fine. It's OK to spend some of your own money on something you like as long as you are responsible otherwise.

    Objectively, those bags are insanely overpriced, but most fashion is. But, one responsible splurge a year is not really a problem.

  • Wifey has several - I buy them for her. She likes them. She also has LOTS of diamonds.

    If I can spend $$$$ on motorcycles she can have a few frikkin hand bags. :)

    • Dude Respect... I get what he is saying about treating someone I would do the same for my significant other if he does the same as well should be mutual and not one sided and like he said he spends his money on the things he likes why can't she... I mean come on people use there money on drugs isn't that worse everyone has their guilty pleasures

    • @GoldFan1001 - Too funny. You cannot even fathom how ridiculous you sound. I've been with this woman for almost thirty years now. That is twice as long as you've even been on the planet. Do you really think I'm going to listen to some snot-nosed teeny-bopper? Just shut the hell up.

  • For you, the value of a product is in its name. For us, the value of a product is in its usefulness and quality. Unless if your $500 purse has extra pockets or waterproof seams, then I can't understand the point in buying it when you can buy a $50 one of the same quality.

  • Don't see the point. You are really paying for the brand, not the bag itself. But if you can sell it for a similar or higher price then it's fine.
    Once a year? I've had the same backpack for over 11 years! And it's still in good condition. Needs a wash, but there is nothing broken, torn, or worn out.

    • Actually I have a coach purse for going on 3 years and it still looks new. If I would have bought a cheap purse... it would have been worn out inside a year.

    • Ok.. one of my coach purses was given to me. The one I am using now... I paid $135 for it. Now does that sound that bad?

    • @Rissyanne Like you said, I'm a guy. Never compared purses before so I don't know. Haha.

  • I find it a ridiculous waste of money. all you're paying for is a name most times the quality isn't any better than something from Walmart and the like. my wife thankfully feels the same as me. purchasing designer stuff shows a lack of understanding of the value of how hard it is to actually earn the money needed to buy that junk anyway. and I do mean junk.

  • For me I just don't get it: I'll spend the money on something cute but not THAT much. However if you have the money girl you are entitled to spend it however you want.

  • I dont even own a expensive designer handbag. You can buy better handbags for a lower price somewhere else. Why do I need a designer handbag anyway? Just to show off and flaunt that you own and can afford an exclusive one? Other than that reason i see no reason to buy a expensive one

  • Buying a name. Waste of money. More money than sense. The owners of brand names like that are laughing all the way to their luxury cruisers.
