what would it be? and why?
what would it be? and why?
I choose a purse only because I’m super clumsy, and if I ever bought designer shoes or clothing item, I’d be worried about ruining it in some way. It’s just too likely to happen.
i would buy a designer purse. Those usually last forever (i would be a classic style, not too trendy looking) and i can pass it down to someone else after i’m done with it and it would be considered “vintage” in about a decade anyway!
no one else has an opinion?
i agree that a handbag will always be in style and would last the longest… hmmm
the reason i’m asking is that we’ve decided on NYC for our honeymoon, and even though it’s 1.5 years away i am going to start saving now for one major splurge!
An amazing purse or piece of jewelry — something I couldn’t wear out too easily (as would be the case with shoes).
I’ll have to go with a pair of shoes. I can’t justify a handbag (I avoid carrying them around whenever possible…they make me feel like a pack horse) and clothes have shorter lives.
LOUBOUTINS! I was gonna splurge on a pair for my wedding shoes (there is a post floating around out there with a pic of the Louboutin blue petal shoes – To. Die. For.) but I realized that I really really don’t want to deal with a 4-inch heel on my wedding day. I might not even make it down that aisle in heels that high.
I’m with the majority thus far – it’s purse/handbag all the way – I need a good sturdy one and I love every “designer” one I’ve had… of course, I usually get them at TJ MAXX or an outlet
Well, I do own a *few* designer items, and they are ALL PURSES! Here’s why:
Clothing: I wear stuff out easily, I work in a manufacturing job, and I come in contact with lots of nasty chemicals. I simply have no place to wear expensive designer clothes. I’m thinking Chanel, D&G, etc. Not JCrew, BR, Limited, Big Star, you get my drift
Shoes: um, I am 5’11” people. I have no need for fancy, tall Christian Louboutins. Did I mention my engineering job? How unpractical! It’s not a feasible choice for me.
Purses: YES PLEASE! I can wear them to work and everywhere I go. I don’t need a *ton* of purses but I like a handful of nice ones. They spruce up my whole outfit!
Depending on how big my “splurge” could be I’d be content to go with jewelry too =]
HA @ejs – I’m 5’3″ which means I need to wear two pairs of Louboutins on top of one another to reach your regular height.
Wow I feel really short now.
Now that you mention it, though, I would love to rock some sort of Dior couture dress. I also love jewelry. Oh man this is one of those posts that is going to send me straight to the internet to browse for things I can’t afford…
I vote for a handbag!
SHOES. I’ve just never cared so much about handbags, although I agree that if I were going to really splurge on one thing only, they’d be the more practical choice.
what designers are best in bags? i’m thinking i’ll spend about $500-$1000 (holy cringe! it will be my most expensive “me” gift EVER)
I *LOVE* designer handbags and I own a few… but I could always use another great classic one! 😉
Louboutins!!!!!!! ALL. THE. WAY.
Or, other: jewelry [think david yurman]
