Do you love the quality and high fashion style of designer handbags? I know that I love them, and I even have a few friends who have indulged themselves in a Gucci or Louis Vuitton bag to flash around. They certainly get a lot of attention and complements, and I know that expensive accessories like this project an aura of success around them!
I would love to join them, because I know that people do respect high fashion brand names. Beside, I will enjoy a fashionable and durable bag. However, I can not justify spending the better part of $ 1,000 for a purse! That is like a mortgage payment or a car repair bill. Also, even though these handbags are very sturdy and classic, nothing lasts forever. In six months or a year, I may want to change it out for another style, or it could become damaged by accident. Maybe I will want to have more than one handbag for different situations, as well. If I can not afford one of these, then I certainly can not afford two or three of them.
So what is the average person's designer handbag solution? Well, of course you have seen cheap knock offs in discount markets or on the table of street vendors. However, these knock offs will not really survive a close inspection as a true designer handbag. Furthermore, they are not usually well constructed, or out of high quality materials. So even though they may look alright for a few days, they tend to show wear or break after a bit of use.
The real solution is to invest a moderate amount in a high quality handbag that is not actually from the most exclusive labels. These are not cheap knockoffs but artfully made replicas which will combine style with durability. They are made from the same materials as the expensive handbags, but since they come from a lesser known factory, they will not come with the insanely high price tag. You will be pleased to see your friend's reaction when you meet them for lunch and usually place a purse like this on the table. And since the prices are more affordable, you could even give them as gifts to special friends or close relationships. Only you have to know that the bag is a replica, and not right from the high fashion store!
