The newest trend in purses??

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal and on the front page today the high end designers have a new "trend" in purses. They are made of PVC and are transparent How would you like to own one of these at a price of $700 and up?? I'm sure this will trickle down to the mass markets sometime.
It was suggested you could like the purse (with an expensive scarf !) to "hide" your stuff or spend even more money and buy a smaller purse to carry your stuff on put it in the transparent one.
Would you really buy one???

Isn't PVC kind of heavy.. I just can't imagine myself wanting something soo modern like...

Not if it was louis vuitton,, well then maybe.. LOL I'm shooting for one of those right now!!!

Put can't say I'd fall into the PVC purse crazeee...

I don't think I would buy one. But without seeing them I can't say for sure. I did end up with one of those cigar box purses (my sister gave it to me) and I only carried it once.

This would have been great for my friend who worked in a check cashing store. She had to use a zip lock bag because they required that the women carry see through bags.

I saw a bag the other day that was made of nothing but zippers. Here they are... Zip its

Didn't they have this in tote bags a few years back?

I think I'll stick to my $5 WalMart clearance purse.

Honestly the $5 walmart clearence purses really stand up better then the expensive purses..

I bought a knockoff lv wallet $75 buckets.. It fell apart... I won't be doing that again anytime soon..

I can't imagine paying $700 on a purse that will fall apart.. I'd go to pieces...

I know of 3 cars I can buy for $700... forget the purse.

I'd never spend that much on a purse because I love the bag I already carry.

I have a bag that I bought for $100.00 four and a half years ago. It has been: on fire, dropped in a mud puddle, kicked, abused, lost, found, used as a pillow, and loved by me since the day it came by UPS. It was worth every penny, but is getting close to retirement. Ladies and gentlemen I normally don't share who I got my bag from, but to my lucky friends on TCS I'll share the link.

I have a brand new cream colored Kenneth Cole purse that I got at the salvation army for $19.....it had the tags on it & everything. It was a donation from a store called Urban Outfitters....they donated a truck full of brand new stuff....I was donating my old clothes & walked in to get a receipt, and saw it behind the register....it was quite the find!

Let me tell you it's worth it... the only reason I need to get a new one is I had a coffee explosion on the inside. The outside looks like the day I took it out of the box.

Knock off purses arent made as well as the real ones... The stitching is often different, etc.
Having carried the cheaper purses that you buy in stores such as Target for many years and having switched to carrying designer purses (Coach and D&B) within the last 3 years, I have to say that in my experience the more expensive ones are made much better.
As into purses as I am, if it becomes trendy, I can't discount myself from buying it

I don't like purses as it is...they annoy me. So spending $700 on one isn't likely to happen.

Plus if its clear, why would I want everyone to see when "its that time of the month" by looking at the amount of tampons I have in my purse?!

I wouldn't buy it. For one, I wouldn't spend that much money on a purse, and for two, I don't like everyone else "in my business"

Even if I had the money, I wouldn't spend it on that. $20 is plenty and they still last. THere just for carrying stuff around. (Can you tell I'm not a fashion conscious consumer? That's why my DH loves me. )

Oooooh! I have a laptop sleeve and hot pink messenger from them! I LOVE Timbuk2!

I have a couple purses...I have 2 coach bags (which I love!), I have a Vera Bradley tote (that exact one, if the link works right) and I have a purse my friend handmade for me...she makes them herself out of multi-colored duct tape and random vintage pop art

Who in the world would want a see through purse?
post #18 of 27
Uh, no thanks! I'm still saving up for my 1st Dooney & Bourke purse!

I don't use purses.. but what if you were carrying something "embarrassing" like ~ladies products~.

Yeah I agree. To me they're for lugging around stuff that you need to have with you, and I don't want that on display all the time! I think a see through PVC purse would look junky.

You know, my sister collects D&B purses...not only is ther an outlet (right across for the coach one ) but she has also had some terrific finds at TJ Maxx and Marshall's! She got a huge tote for like $50 or $60!

I KNOW!!! I saw one at TJ Maxx (not the one I really want...) that was originally $400, for only $100. My friend goes in there all the time and see's them, so when I get the cash, I'm headed there!

Oh... and I'm really glad I don't live near a Coach outlet, I'd be broke... but at least I'd have great purses!

I always have so much junk in my purse that I don't want people to see, like unpaid bills, stubs from bills that I did pay, candy bars, mints, 10 different lip glosses, wallet, pepper spray, hair brush that should be cleaned, pen, keys, lunch dishes from work, a scarf, and whatever else I decided to shove in there that particular day.

Another thing... I don't think I'd like that anyways, well, mine would like it was lined with fur, with all the cat hair I carry with me in mine!

This is why I'm glad that it's an hour away, near my parents' house! The only Coach store we have here is the real deal, down on the Mag Mile...and I can in no way afford to shop there!

well if my purse was see through maybe I might be able to find my gum without empting everything out of it.

I'm too in love with my gray denim Old Navy purse and my Military medical bags.
