Hermes prices ain't so bad after all.... Doesn't this just sound wrong? Anyway, I do have a point to make. After looking at various designer bags in the last few years, I am constantly amazed and no longer shocked at the ticket prices. It seems any bag of decent substance is around $2000 or up. With this being said, a gal pal recently got a really cute Chanel red tote which is stylish but classic for $2900. I feel faint looking at the price. Yes, Chanel just had another price increase. Rude, uh....For quite a few years now, I have been looking at the Hermes Evelyne bag but have always stopped because of the price. However, I am beginning to look at the Evelyne in a different light after gal pal's red Chanel tote. If Chanel is charging $2900 for a stylish seasonal tote then I don't feel so bad about a $2800 classic bag which I know I will use for years. I can imagine wearing this bag cross-body or taking the strap off and replace with a scarf for a shorter stylish look.
1. Evelyne III Large 12x 13 x 3 inch $2800
2. Jige Clutch 11.25 x 12 x 2.5 inch $2500 --- I also like the clutch but don't know if I will get much use. However, I have a feeling I will.....
3. Jypsiere Messenger 34cm/37cm $7600/$8100 --- This is cute but pricey. Lots of thinking and gold coins needed. A gal pal wore it short with a scarf instead of the strap which is absolutely adorable.
4. Picotin Lock Bag 8.25 x 8.6 x 6.7 inch $2475 --- Another gal pal got this. But, it is too cute for my taste.
I know style and taste are totally relative. For me, I don't mind paying for classic bags but it is hard for me to pay too much for fun bags. What about you?
