$1800 – blue leather Gucci Sukey.  I totally fell for the blue the moment I saw it.  It was kind of impulsive though and I kind of regret it now cause I don’t really use it.  Second most was $1500 (great buy from Europe this year since it would have been 2k at home including tax), which is currently my favorite – anthracite Balenciaga town.  Everything else I have is under 1k.

About $300.  But it isn’t a frequent purchase at all!  My average handbag is about $100-150.  Again, only as needed.

bibber:  Hmmm…. I usually don’t buy a purse unless I have a gift card or coupon to use for it. I guess out of pocket (even with gift cards/coupons), the most I have ever spent was $150.

$150 at the Coach outlet, would have been $350 at the coach store and I would not have paid that, bc I can afford $150, but not $350.  If my income allowed I would spend whatever I wanted for a purse I love.  And shoes.

Well, the retail value for classic Coach (leather!) tote with the legacy hardware was $795 but I found it at Macy’s on a one-day sale for like $475. So, that. 

I also bought a gorgeous leather bag in Florence that was €350 or so but would have easily been twice that here in the states.

I’d love a Chanel 2.55 but… $6k new and $3500 pre-owned? Nah.

MrsBuesleBee:  Love my neverfull.. it’s brought me through many semesters at school along with my Le Pliage… not sure what you mean by a bag for basic beeches… not sure if a bag can dictate the type of person you are

To the question though: 900… I want a Chanel Flap Bag with all my heart but it’s gonna have to wait (for a while)

FWIW I love bigger handbags and with leather they always cost a lot more… I hate seeing grown ass women with these tiny bags (how do you fit anything in there anyways) .. no bueno for me!

$500 or so, but considering an LV NeverFull soon. Darling Husband really seems to want to get it for me. My only hesitation is timing – pregnant and thinking I might not enjoy my higher end bags as much in the near future due to being stuck with a diaper bag? But then tons of people seem to use them as diaper bag/handbag hybrid. I don’t love that the strap is a bit short to be comfy on shoulder for me – wondering how practical it will be if not over-shoulder if I also have kid in arms/arms full + diaper bag? First world problems 😉
