There are some basics that everyone should have in their closet. I'm talking about items that will work hard for you and give your style that "certain something". Spend as much as you can on a super bad ass black bag. The return on investment (ROI) will be worth it. Feel free to use the below equation to help justify the cost. If you spend your money well you will be using this bag for a long time.
Purchase amount divided by the # of times used (For Chanel, that would be a life time) = Totally worth the daily cost of buying this hella expensive bag.*
*A good shopper can always justify the purchase ;)
