"Oh, you're just paying for the name."
I've heard this a ton of times, usually about pricey handbags and clothes.
But is it true? In a way yes, and no. Here's a good layshopper's guide as to what goes into designer handbag costs, from CanadianLiving.com:
Why do designer purses cost so much?
My opinion? Yes, they seem (and let's face it, are) ridiculously expensive, but oh, the fine details, the sturdiness, the gorgessity of them (thanks LaineyGossip.com, for coining that marvellous term). I love that they have dustbags tucked inside, I love that the hardware never falls off, I love that they wear to a beautiful patina instead of looking like ragged crap after half a year.
