For as long as time has existed, the question for women everywhere has remained the same:
“The bag or the shoes?”
I’ve had numerous conversations over the years with women about whether they would be happy to splash their cash on an expensive pair of shoes or whether they would prefer to save their pennies for a designer handbag.
The results have been fairly evenly split in my experience (and there has also been a very small group that doesn’t seem bothered by either).
Me? I’m Team Bag.
Don’t get me wrong. I love a well crafted, beautiful heel as much as the next Carrie Bradshaw aficionado, however I seem to fall in and out of love with shoes.
Having said that, I do agree that a classic black leather pointed toe pump never, ever dates – so that would be my one exception to the rule. And if I happened to be in the US and there just so happened to be a sale on a certain red soled wonder, it would be an offer too good for me to refuse.
But back to the bag.
I tend to carry the same handbag every day. The only time I’ll swap it out is to downsize for evening with a clutch that matches what I’m wearing. I’ve always been happy to buy “cheapie” bags – until now. My current handbag is on its last legs and I feel the time is right to take the leap and invest in a quality carry-all.
I’ve done quite a bit of research which has led me to this beauty and very soon she will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine.
I’m looking forward to having a beautiful bag of superior quality and one that will hopefully be the start of a rainbow collection…!
So tell me, are you Team Bag or Team Shoes? Or Team Not Bothered?
Have you ever splurged? What did you buy?
