    I am sort of stuck as to whether or not to buy this bag...
    I fell in love with it a while back in the designer store next door to the one I work in but it cost about 700 euro and I earn only about 500 a month (part time job). I like to own nice things like this.

    They are now having a sale! It is down to 300 euro...

    I really want it, but everyone is telling me it's a stupid idea as it's far too much money for a bag. Especially my family, who aren't really into fashion and dressing up or styles.
    I agree that it's incredibly expensive for a bag, but it's lovely. I cannot decide whether to buy it or not. I really want to, but everyone is making me feel bad about it! I haven't been able to go on holiday this year, and it's my 21st soon so I want to treat myself...
    But I don't know if I should save the money instead...

    Opinions?

    I didn't describe it as everyone has different ideas of what a 'nice' bag looks like depending on their taste.

    It's shiny and very pink with a sort of buckle shape at the front, but it's not really a buckle? Hard to describe but the quality is amazing and it suits my taste very well.


    I was really asking whether it is too expensive and a waste of money...

    Does anyone really 'need' a handbag? It's more a want...

    if I had a bit more cash saved, I'd definitely buy it. I can afford it, but it's not like I am loaded at the moment.
    It's just so preeetty.

    not that much at all, and a nice handbag can last a while if you really want it, get it.

    Buy it. The fact that you liked it when it was 700 Euros and now its less than half price, its a bargain!! It's not like you like it now because its cheap(er), you like it for what it is and not its better price, and at that price, I'm sure its fantastic quality, so get it!!

    Yeah.
    Think about how often you use it, then divide the cost by that and it will probably work out cheaper, per wear than a lot of stuff you buy.

    This is how I justify extravagant purchases to my mum. If its a classic style, you'll be able to use it for years, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.

    I don't think that it is really that expensive for a bag. I gift female friends bags which cost more and most of them carry expensive bags.
