If you randomly Google paparazzi shots of female Hollywood stars, there’s a high chance that most of them are carrying a designer handbag. It does not matter where they are or what they are wearing. They are almost always clutching a Hermès Birkin, a Louis Vuitton Speedy, or the classic Chanel Flap Bag. It can easily be said that they use these handbags because they can afford even tens or twenties of them.
However, if you take a close look at what the women on the street are carrying, how many of them would you say are designer? One out of four? Or maybe more? In the recent years, designer bags are have transcended from being exclusive to A-listers, to being a regular bag aficionado’s everyday accessory. The truth is, more and more women are buying designer bags because they see them as a form of investment. You should, too! Here’s why:
Designer handbags can easily elevate your personal style.
Anyone who is into fashion knows that designer handbags are the ultimate luxury accessory. They go well with almost any outfit—even your most dressed down ones—and any place or occasion. The aesthetic value of designer bags and the fashion brownie points that come with them are the main reasons why people make their first purchase.
Designer handbags are VERY durable.
The price of designer handbags is probably the main factor why people are apprehensive to get one. They usually cost an arm and a leg, but what some people do not know is that handbags are designed to be durable, to the point that it can probably outlive most of the less expensive bags that you have in your closet. With that in mind, the price will be more reasonable if you will factor in the longevity of the handbag. Just make sure to store your bags in a way that they’ll be protected from harmful elements. There are plenty of dust bags in the market for this, but very few brands, like No Sacrifice Bags’ Undercovers, offer protection from light, dust, and moisture.

Since they never go out of style, their value just increase the older they get. According to Dailymail, the value of designer handbags increased by 8% each year for ten years, and the Hermès Birkin alone has increased its value by 500% in the last 35 years. You might not know it yet, but you could hit the jackpot a few decades from now with that tote you’re preserving in your closet!
