SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

A brand new car or a handbag?

A brand new car or a handbag?

You may be shaking your head in disbelief, but the latest "it" bag called Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag retails for $45, 352. Why is this bag as expensive as a new car? It does feature a gold chain handle, but the real reason for the high price is that it's made up of samples of 15 different Louis Vuitton Handbags from the LV spring/summer and cruise lines. If you want one of these bags, you have to get in line?. There will only be a limited number being made and the fashionista's tell us there's already a long waiting list!

A more affordable and equally sought after “it” bag is the enviro-stylish re-usable shopping bag by top UK designer Anya Hindmarch. It sold out in the UK in minutes. The tote officially named “I’m Not A Plastic Bag” is made from cotton, not plastic and so far only sold in the UK. The company promises to have more in stock in mid- April and they will also be sold, again in limited quantities and colors, in other countries this summer.

If you had the money would you prefer the environmentally friendly and inexpensive bag or the Louis Vuitton?

    I would never pay this much for a handbag!  Good Lord!  Even if I had $45,000 I would not spend that kind of money on a bag!  Give it to charity!

    Why, as a society, do we feel that spending money on something that you are not going to use for more than a season is neccessary?  $45,000 could be used for so much good!

    I would have a lot better things to do with $45,000. Things like pay off my car and a huge chunk of the house. A handbag wouldn't even make the list.

    Oh My goodness!  That much money for such an unattractive bag is ridiculous!  I think I could find better places for my money.

    Oh My, you know this brought up memories for me, remember the Hurrican Katrina Victims who spent her money from the redcross on a Gucchi Bag, Talk about irrate people here who lost homes and struggled to get help and are still living in tents.  I would never spend that kind of money when I know there is too much good you could do with it elsewhere!

    I could never pay this much for a bag even if it were pure gold.  It is ridiculous to waste money just because of a name....Some people just have way to much money and time.

    Hello.  Actually,knowing that there is a method to everyone's madness,my first thought was,why,is Louis Vitton charging so high a price?Is it their ultimate intention to raise funds for a charity of some kind?Are they (secretly)going bankrupt,and truly need an outrageous amount of money to come back out of the red?Has there been a coorparate takeover,so they need the money to fight?What,are we consumers supposed to think of such a simply ludicrous request?Such rediculous requests have been known to be the iminent ruination of companies past,and so very long forgotten.Such a company does not speak to,or for me,or my family.Bon voy-ahh-gee,baby!I'm ALL for the environment!
