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?

    Looks like the designer couldn't decide on this seasons look so he pieced together the past 12 seasons into one bag?!?! Interesting approach.

    Give me a BREAK!!  This has to be the ugliest bag I have ever seen!  I would never buy a handbag for that price!!  I would use the 45,000 for my daughters college fund.

    Believe me, that is ridiculous price for any purse. Don't care what brand name it is. In fact when I buy purses, I look for sales, and bargains. I have come across some brand name purses for such a bargain.

    That is insane!!   I feel guilty when I purchase a "cheap" $30 let alone $45,000.   I would have to be committed if I did that.

    I have to admit that I only buy Kate Spade and Coach...but even those don't come close to that dollar amount!  Way too steep for me and besides, I think that bag is UGLY!  I love a classic looking bag!  But, I guess if you have $45,000 to blow, then go for it!  This bag is obviously not for your average "Jane"

    That is the type of handbag should only belongs to the runway.  Eventho it is not the most expensive handbag on the planet compare to Hermes Birkins, but at least Hermes bag are good looking and durable, this one look plain silly to me.

    Its ugly, really ugly, and like someone else commented, I dont even go buy ,myself a purse that costs 30 bucks. I check for sales and buy the clearance bags. Now I do have a DIAPER bag that was pricey. But I didn't buy it, and I LOVE the bag mainly because its a washable one.

    Some one has too much money & not enough sense if they will pay that much for a rag bag. I don't care whose name is on it.
