Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy Bag

Louis Vuitton Monogram Speedy Bag Louis Vuitton have never been more popular than they are right now. But believe it or not, Louis Vuitton Mongram Speedy Bags have been the "it" bags for over 50 years now...

The size of the bags varies from Speedy 25 to Speedy 40 and so does the price: $675.00 - $750.00, they are available in Louis Vuitton online store, but I am sure you will prefer to buy your LV in a Louis Vuitton boutique near you.


Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag

Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag Awe... Chanel 2.55 is the queen of designer handbags. It's so stylish, it's breath-taking. They are twice as expensive as Louis Vuitton Speedies and they are too so worth the crazy price. These beautiful bags come in different colors and in 3 sizes - check out the size/price chart at the bottom of Chanel 2.55 - Pure Classic post.


Dior Black Quilted Patent Lady Dior Bag

Dior Black Quilted Patent Lady Dior Bag Yet another stylish, timeless classic. This Dior bag looks stunning and it can be worn with anything, which makes it a fantastic choice for your designer bag collection. It comes with golden hardware as well, in case you are looking for something dressier.

For the price of $1800 you are getting one of the most fabulous bags out there. And by the way, the beautiful classic Lady Dior bag comes in white patent leather too for those hot summer days and vacations (sigh)...


Hermes Birkin Bag

Hermes Birkin Bag This is the bag you have seen on the most stylish celebrities. Although this bag is definitely not my style, I can see why women want to shell out $6.000.00 - $15.000.00, depending on the material, for a bag like this.

Located in Paris, Hermes issues only 5 (!!!) Birkins a week - the waiting lists are endless, of course, and that's what makes them even more desirable.

Oh, dear Diana, Target and H&M are the best!

I love my purses and I love finding new great ones that will hold lots of stuff...but I'm just not into spending more than $25-$30 on one! I usually can find good ones at Target! :)

I may buy one of this in recent future but then will be left with no money to keep in the bag :P

I got a Birkin that was previously owned by my grandma!!

ohmygawsh!! the chanel 2.55 bag looks ah-mazing!! so tempting yet soo expensive!!

Dear Maria, You are absolutely right, designer bags, especially these iconic 4 are pretty expensive. And the worst part is that they never are and never will be on sale... However, if you are as crazy about having one of those bags as I am, you might consider starting saving. Seriously. $700 sounds like a lot of money for a bag. But if you put aside $5 every day - you will have enough money for your dream bag in just 4 month and 2 weeks or so... I think it's totally worth it! Every day we spend much more on coffee and sweets and little silly stuff we do not need or even like for that matter... That's the way I tackle the financial side... I wonder what tactics you guys have for getting the things you love?

Bought 3 designer vintage handbags from a second hand shop. It cost me very cheap, had it shine. Chanel & Burberrys, great buy. Love it ❤️

Designer bag, shoes, cloths, sunglasses..et cetera..all tempting! But then again, there's always something that "fit" for everyone. It will come back to us, do we have it for our own satisfaction or just to show up? I ♥ that Birkin bag, but I know it's not "for me". Now I'm saving my Starbuck budget for 35" LV Speedy that, of course, long and lasting till I could have enough saving to buy another designer whatever that I want. Meanwhile, I'm just happy as I am to use Guess handbag that more affordable. It will stop me for feeling guilty of spending 2 months of my daughter tuition worth on an LV ;)

I don't like any of them:( Maybe my style is strange. I don't care if a bag it's expensive or not, made by a famous designer or not. I just know that I must like it:)
