    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!

    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…

    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.

    I *LOVE* designer handbags and I own a few… but I could always use another great classic one!  😉
