Are they justifiably expensive or are they just a scam? My cousin is going to buy a $1000 purse that his girlfriend wants, you see. This is what has led me to these thoughts.

    It's amazing what people will pay money for. It all depends on what you consider valuable.

    I've seen a one-of-a-kind Velvet Underground LP on ebay for 200,000 or so dollars.

    Yeah, but that was one-of-a-kind. My geek mind understands that reasoning.

    Also, by convincing someone that something is rare, you can do amazing things.

    I don't understand how you can have a bootleg purse.

    People can make and sell a purse for $20 that is identical to a $2000 purse.

    So what are you paying for here? The purses look and feel like they're identical to each other, so it's not the material. The design isn't really anything special, it's a common purse design made a million times before - it doesn't even have a pattern on it. Where does the other $1980 go?

    My Father's girlfriend wanted a Gucci purse, so she got one, and was 100% sure it was real(cost her like $200) and then come to find out it's fake. My advice, get a cheap knockoff.

    Sometimes cheaper things even look nicer.

    I've seen purses being sold in the streets that are actually really nice.

    Kick him in the balls and punch her in the face for being fucking retarded. Its a Goddamn purse. Its only purpose is to carry money. The money would be better IN the purse than SPENT on it.

    Your cousin is a fucking loser.

    A sack to keep all your (useless) shit in should never cost more than your pants.

    Your pants should never cost more than your mom charges per hour.

    Your mom is a whore.

    Up until I got my current bag, the most I'd spend on one was 10 dollars.
    This is outrageously expensive to me, at 70 dollars.
    However, it is a brand name that I trust, it is extreme sturdy, with thick canvas and brass.
    FOSSIL ftw.

    I have friends who would spend upwards of 200 dollars for bags.
    I don't get it.

    No dude... you have to put your post in the box in the bottom that says "reply".

    Just hitting quote makes the same message pop up again with nothing added to it, and you wouldn't want that, would you?

    My best friend is obsessed with purses, all Louis Vitton and Coach and blah blah. Its painful listening to her talk about purses, and god forbid you touch her purse with dirty hands, or you're bound to get a swift kick in the junk.

    I've been thinking on spending a sizeable wad of cash on some decent fashion items, because I'm tired of looking like a slob.

    Then again, I'm broke and if I can't figure out what to do with my hair, I probably shouldn't be thinking about plopping 100+ dollars on a blazer or something.

    I definetly need some shoes, though. And some new Levi's.

    Yes, I had to edit in my post because of the aforementioned problem that you didn't know until I mentioned it which would make it postmentioned, I guess, despite the post order inclining you to think otherwise.

    But yes, anybody who is willing to spend over 200 dollars on a fashion accessory deserves death. I applaud your rational approach, Mully.

    If I had $1000 to blow on my girlfriend, I would buy her a Wii, a new dining room table, and some marijuana.

    And still have $500. My girlfriend kicks ass.

    I want to get some kind of shoulder/back harness that I can strap a backpack onto, thereby perfectly distributing the weight along the length of my back.

    I also want a utility belt.

    And a cape, but damn it's impossible to wear a cape in real ife and not look like an absolute douche.

    My friend works at coach.


    They give there reciepts out in these tiny little folders. Like tiny, reciept sized folders.


    Thats a waste of paper, I say.

    NAHUH! TIFFANYS DOES IT TOO, she says.

    How does that negate the fact that it is a waste of paper since a lot of people just toss reciepts, now they are tossing tiny folders too.


    Fucking ridiculous.

    Also, she tried to justify the purses by saying they are italian leather. Oooh italian cows, that makes sense.

    She tried to compare the buying of a 2000 purse to the fact that we spend money upgrading our cars to make them run better.

    She also tried to justify the 2000 purse by telling us it came with a free 500 wallet.




    WHO THE FUCK PAYS 500 DOLLARS FOR A FUCKING WALLET?!?
