Splurge or Save ? - The perfect bag

Splurge or Save - Black everyday tote


SHOP

My birthday is next month, and I decided that I wanted to get a new everyday bag. When it comes to bags, I usually tend to go with the medium priced range bag. First because the high end brands rarely are an option (let's face it, I have 2 kids, it would feel really selfish to spend that much money on me, and I wouldn't want to anyway !). But I realized over the years, that a great quality bag, will last me for years and years (I've been carrying that MK bag for the last 8 years !!!). I've been seriously considering that Tory Burch one. It's a little over what I usually spend on a bag, but it seems like the perfect timeless one to carry around. Unfortunately the reviews online are a little mixed and I'm not shure it's worth the pricetag (if you have it and love it please let me know, I so want to love it haha !!!). Maybe I'll go for the save for now, until I fall in love with a new style !

  3. I normally go for mid-priced bags as well; if I'm going to purchase something from a high-end line like Prada, I don't want it to ever get damaged, so I'm more likely to choose a wallet, which is always tucked away safely :) The Tory Burch bag is definitely my favourite of these three, but if the reviews are mixed, I might hesitate. What a shame :( But it might just means there's an even better bag out there that you haven't found yet ;)

    1. I know what a shame ! I really wanted to get it, but before I spend 600$ on a bag, it's better be a good quality !

  5. Well, since most of my bags come from t.j.maxx I'm probably not a good person to ask :) But the Tory Burch one is gorgeous!

  6. I think going for an affordable, but mid-priced bag works best for me as well. A black handbag is always great for any occasion.

  9. The trouble is...my taste is Prada but my budget is Ily Couture. They're all beautiful though!

    Enjoy you're weekend! **

  13. I'm the same with my bags. I tend to go for the middle range as well, because they are still really nice and tend to last forever.

    I like your blog and I'm going to follow. I just started one and hope you'll stop by!

  14. Wonderful choices! I too try to go for mid range bags but sometimes I will make the splurge, other times, I go for the cheaper bag if I think it's a bag that's more for fun than classic!

    Wonderful blog, btw! Newest follower :)
