Ladies, I totally get it.
You’re not trying to drop your rent on a handbag. Me neither. But here’s the deal – you don’t want that “bag under $50.” In fact, nobody does.
The $50-bag is a scam; a weak salve on the wound of wanting to measure up. The $50-bag neither excites nor satisfies the discerning woman. So stop fooling yourselves right now, don’t buy that bag.
You want real leather. You want craftsmanship from someone who gave a shit. You want the figurative tip-of-the-hat from every other woman who sees you carrying it down the street.
Nobody gets any of that with the $50-bag.
Look. It’s not about carrying the status monogram bag. In fact – don’t. DON’T buy that monogram bag.
Instead, make an investment in what makes you feel good because you love the style and not because it’s what everyone else is carrying. Save up some cash and treat yourself; just do it.
Spending big for a bag isn’t like splurging on a spa day (although we know how insanely fantastic spa days are). No – spending on a bag is investing in years of self-confidence. YEARS.
So, seriously. Set aside $25 a week or a month in an fancy envelope for your “bag fund,” and stay away from that bag.
So, tell me in the comments below – am I crazy for thinking you deserve better? What is your budget for a handbag you can carry for another 5 years and how much have you ever spent on a bag?
PS – I forgot to mention in the video how much I paid for the bag I’ve been carrying for 10 years.
