WTF?

How does one justify spending this...

$185- !

on this....
11'' x 16'' unlined nylon bag by Pucci


or better yet this...


$290- !

on this...
18'' x 15'' cotton lined wool bag, no closure by Comme des Garcons

I'll take a dozen! I'll use them as my recyclable green grocer bags. I mean, that's what they look like to me. I made more advanced stuff in my 7th grade home economics class (do they still teach home eco.?).

Seriously, are people really that stupid? For gods sake they couldn't even put one of those little magnetic closures on them? At least Comme de Garcons had the decency to line their bag (for $105- more).

No, I'm not telling you where to buy them. Why? because frankly I will not participate in this greedy ridiculousness! You want it you find it.

That is ridiculous. I would rather treat myself to a mini vacation that buy a bag for hundreds of dollars. But that is just me. Have a good week!

Well, being a guy, I've never understood why so many women spend the money they do on accessories like these...

I agree that it IS total greed on the designer's part! They are the ones that decide the price point, right? Unfortunately, this kind of thing will probably never stop because there are too many fashionista types out there that will continue to pay these kind of exorbitant prices.

Good for you, not providing buying info or links! You go, girl!
