If you are carrying a designer handbag, it is very likely that you would receive a lot of envious looks from the people walking by you. These bags are sophisticated looking, and they make you look so happy because of the bright colors, shine and glamour that it brings. If you want to make a bold fashion statement and be noticed, be sure to carry one of them.
The monogram or initial print has become the hottest trend in designer handbags today. This technique makes use of the designer’s initial being printed all over the bag’s surface. Because of the popular demand of these bags, experts believe that this trend would last for a long time. They even believe that limited editions of these bags would also be introduced to the public. And because you can not find them anywhere else, then they are raised to the level of collectibles.
Designer handbags are very painful to one’s budget. Sometimes, a bag can cost $1,000 a piece for genuine, authentic originals. A lot of parents say that they are having a hard time with their finances because their teenage daughters give in to the pressure that they should own one of these bags themselves. Even though there are a lot of counterfeit bags selling in the black market, who would want to be seen carrying around a knock off? Besides, the feeling of rush because you are carrying a status symbol is gone.
There is one way that you can do to be able to use one of these bags without actually having to pay that much money? And that is through leasing them from companies like Bag, Borrow or Steal. They had the idea of leasing bags because their target market is the low income earners who just want to use their bags for one evening. The range of the prices varies from around $40-$100 depending on the duration of the lease.
If you are willing to spend a lot of money to buy your own bag, then better be sure that you know the proper way to care for your bag. When these bags’ looks’ fade, their authenticity is questioned and they somewhat lose their appeal. So, if you want to preserve its original form, then store the bag somewhere where dust can not enter them or no sharp objects can scratch them. A soft pillow and a dust bag would be very helpful.
Always handle the bags only when you are sure that your hands are clean. Try using bubble wraps instead of tissue paper because they do not attract moths. Remember to unbuckle if you are planning a long time storage so it won’t make any impressions on the straps. Otherwise, you might even consider insurance. Especially if you have more than one bag, then you might want to protect your Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and your beloved Louis Vuitton.
