I have yet to meet a girl who would not love to get her hands on a gorgeous hand-crafted leather handbag. Bags are accessories I do not hesitate to invest in. They transform an entire outfit, and a well-made bag that is taken care of can last a lifetime. The reality is, luxury handbags do come with a high cost. The quality of the materials and the time put into crafting every little detail play a big role in this. Bottom line is: the price point can get insanely high. But there’s hope; not only the rich and famous can afford luxury bags ;). I have two strategies when it comes to buying luxury items.
