    lol, Probably about $30. I don’t see the point in spending tons of money on designer bags. Most of them are ugly anyways.

    alpinebride:  lol, I just hate spending money on myself in general! I wait until I have gift money to buy stuff. Haha.

    alpinebride:  $1200 for my Chloe bag and $1200 for my Balanciaga. I’ve had the Chloe for 4 years now and the Balanciaga for 6 years. 

    I love them both and they are amazing bags. I haven’t bought a designer bag at that price point since though. 

    I do have a Luella Bartley that I got used for $40 at Buffalo Exchange (retails for $900). It’s also an amazing bag, and one that I’ll probably use for my personal items for our wedding.

    I think the most I’ve spent is just over $100 for a Kate Spade bag from Nordstrom Rack.

    I do own another Kate that cost about $200, but it was a gift from DH and my parents.

    alpinebride: The Luella was authentic — I could tell by the leather. It’s held up wonderfully well, considering I was the 3rd owner! The girl who cosigned it at Buffalo Exchange had originally bought it there for $100 🙂 

    I just got really lucky. I’ve been offered anywhere from $100 – $150 for it, but I can’t give it up. There’s no way I’ll ever find a deal that good again.

    Hmm 400~500 ish for my Kate Spade & Marc by Marc Jacobs that I got last year. I’ve seen a few more in the same price range & others in the 1,000$ range I REALLY like but I barely use my bags so maybe in a few years when I feel it’ll be worth it… Or if I find one on sale!
    We’re okay financially, no debt, but we just got a new car so I’ve been trying to splurge less.

    Probably around $250 for a $800 all leather bag from coach at their outlet. Not usually a fan of their “C” bags or canvas bags, but i have found a few of their higher end leather purses that I’ve splurged on!

    Um…the first designer bag I bought for myself was a classic Chanel lambskin flap in a divine bordeaux hue. I think it was around $4000. 

    I wouldn’t spend that much now, I still love bags but tend to be vintage or preowned. $2500 is probably my maximum these days.

    $75 is the most, and I probably wouldn’t do it again. I don’t understand spending a lot on a bag. It’s just a bag. I’ve never seen an expensive bag I like so much I’d spend 3 digits on it. Even $75 was kind of a lot but in this case it was very unique and one of a kind.

    The most I’ve spent was about 60 euros for a classic leather handbag (think Queen Elizabeth’s handbags! lol). But mine has a twist – it’s bright yellow! I loved it so much I couldn’t help myself, it’s like a little ray of sunshine in my hand, it was on sale and it reminds me of Vienna where I bought it.

    I have another beautiful leather handbag from Picard that was about 130 euros and was a gift from my mother for my 25th birthday and a lovely new briefcase/handbag mix from Mandarina Duck that was a gift from a family friend when I passed my bar exam two months ago – it was about 200 euros, quite expensive but she insisted she wanted to buy it for me because I needed something both nice and useful to kickstart my career.  I love her 🙂

    I’ve never spent over a few hundred. Most expensive are a couple Prada bags, but they are the nylon version. I have been eying a red leather one that would be over $1k, but can’t bring myself to spend that much in one place right now.
