I have several co-workers and friends who are REALLY in to these designer purses/handbags and I just don't get it. Some of them pay as much as $300.00 or MORE for a purse or handbag. The bags that I am seeing them with are bulky, loud, flashy, gawdy and not very attractive. Am I missing something? I guess it's because we all have different taste. I was excited when I found my dream purse at Target for $8.00. I bought it in 3 different colors. I thought that I had hit the lottery.
