When to buy a luxury handbag? 

The many models that exist, whether small or large, sleek or extravagant, stylishly chic or refined to the max, are clearly a hit with crowds around the world. The only real problem: luxury bags have blood-curdling prices. This factor makes the purchase of a luxury bag a little tricky. 

No matter how much you love fashion and shopping, you should think twice before spending hundreds or even thousands of euros on a luxury bag.

"Is it worth the expense?", "Will I regret my purchase?", "Given the price, am I choosing the right bag?". If these questions (or others) are running through your head when you see a bag you want, it's perfectly normal. And you've come to the right place. Let's take a closer look at some approaches to answering these questions.


The essential questions to ask

The price of luxury bags is clearly not negligible, but when faced with a compulsive craving, the possibility of cracking is not negligible either. In order to avoid an expense you may later regret, we will make sure your decision is as radical as possible. To do this, here are some questions to ask yourself about when to buy a luxury handbag. 


A bag to celebrate what? 

Is that beautiful bag you're hesitating to buy for yourself to celebrate a special event or situation? Or is it just another shopping trip? Is it your first luxury bag or the first bag you've ever bought with your own money? 

This is the very first question you should ask yourself when you feel like buying a luxury bag (or any other item for that matter): why am I buying it? 

If it is an event you are celebrating, is it worth spending so much money on? Similarly, if it's just a shopping trip, is it worth spending so much money on shopping? 


What is the urgency of the bag?

The purpose of the previous question was to highlight the importance of buying a luxury bag. Once you have answered it correctly, think about the urgency of this new purchase. 

It's understandable that you'd like to show off your brand new luxury handbag on your wrist as soon as possible. Although normal, this is very often a euphoric reaction. So how vital is it that you wear that bag tomorrow? 


New or used bag? 

Next question: Should I buy my luxury bag new or used? Although the question may seem out of place to true fashion fans, it is not "reasonably" so. 

If you have the opportunity to buy a second-hand bag (and there is no shortage of opportunity), you should think seriously about it. The expense of a second-hand bag is generally easier to digest. However, let's face it, the cost of a luxury bag should not be the only criterion for picking it up second-hand. 


A bag for what occasion? 

Whether it is for fashion specialists or for simple fashion enthusiasts, luxury bags are unanimously recognised as a status symbol. It is therefore important to take this into account when deciding whether or not to buy a luxury bag. 

If you're going to buy a luxury bag, you might as well buy a luxury bag that matches your social class, your rank, your social circle. 

So the question is, on what occasions do you plan to wear that luxury bag you like? 


Fast fashion or timeless? 

You probably know what fast fashion is. No ? Well, the trend of the moment. Those super stylish bags that are all the rage one moment and then lose popularity the next. 

Which category does the bag you want to buy belong to? Is it the fast fashion of the moment? Or a timeless brand name? Think about it.


What budget should be invested in the cause? 

This brings us to one of the most important questions to answer when deciding when to buy a handbag: how much to spend on a luxury handbag? 

In a way, answering the previous questions should help answer the current question. 

However, the management of personal finances varies enormously from one individual to another. So this is a very personal question that only you can answer. A word of advice though: don't sacrifice the most urgent things you need to do for an unimportant and non-urgent compulsive pleasure. 


The most reasonable answers 

A bag to celebrate what? 

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. If you want to buy a handbag to celebrate a special occasion, that's okay. It's very important to treat yourself when you've earned it. It's also important even when you haven't necessarily earned it, i.e. even when it's just a routine purchase.

However, let's face it, one of the situations weighs more than the other. On this basis, a special event could be considered more important than a regular shopping trip. 

If it is not important, you could you can do without it. At worst, you postpone this expense until you have more savings and fewer more important things to deal with first. 


What is the urgency of the bag?

Don't get me wrong, important and urgent are not synonymous, or at least not in this case. Important is what really matters. Urgent is what matters now. 

If it's not important, it can wait. We have already said that. If it's important, but not urgent, it can wait too. So when should you buy a luxury handbag in this case? When the conditions are right. Among other things, waiting allows you to deal with more important or urgent matters, and to save money to buy that bag you've been craving. 


New or used bag? 

If you feel that buying that luxury bag is both an important and urgent cause, the question to ask yourself is: can I afford to buy it new? 

If not, you may want to consider buying this luxury bag second hand. And if you absolutely must have it new, then carrying it over is probably the best option. 

If, on the other hand, your answer is yes, and you are sure that your answer is reasonable, then it is probably a good time to buy a luxury handbag. 


A bag for what occasion? 

You could buy a luxury bag with the possibility of going out with it on many occasions in mind. In this case, a careful model like the GUESS-NAYA tote bag would suit you perfectly. 

You could also opt for a more oriented model, a sort of Joker, which you will only wear on very special occasions. Then this EMPORIO ARMANI would be an acceptable model for you. 


Fast Fashion or Timeless? 

Here again, there is no right or wrong answer. Nevertheless, for a fast fashion, which will lose all interest in a few months, the most reasonable choice is to avoid crazy sums. Prefer second-hand bags that will be good deals at the time, and good deals in the future. 

A timeless piece, on the other hand, is worth its weight in gold. So don't skimp on the means. And if your finances don't allow it, plan ahead. 


When to buy a luxury handbag? This is a tricky question, but when you answer the above questions honestly and reasonably, it becomes much clearer. Make no mistake, the purpose of these questions is not to prevent you from buying a luxury handbag. On the contrary, luxury handbags are nowadays even considered as investments objects that become more valuable over time. So when you come across a luxury handbag, think about it, ask yourself the right questions, and if you can, treat yourself.
