Should You Buy the Designer Handbag?


Now, it’s fair to say that
Tiffany Haddish is having a great week.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Yes, we love her. We love Tiffany. Not only is she one of Time Magazine’s 100
More Influential People, she also made her debut on the cover of W’s May issue.
>>Good for her. Wow.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Looking stunning. And in her interview, Tiffany tells
a story of how her Girls Trip costar Jada Pinkett Smith once told her to
knock if off with the knockoffs, after seeing her with
a Michael Kors bag that said, MLK instead of MK.
>>That’s a Martin Luther King Day.>>That was a Martin Luther King Day.
>>[LAUGH]>>Well, Tiffany defended her knockoff, saying, quote, my philosophy is, whatever
the bad costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive
than the cash I have to put in it.>>[APPLAUSE]>>So ladies, do you agree with Tiffany, or do you think that sometimes
it’s good to splurge?>>Well, if that was the case, I’d be putting $20 in my bag.
>>[LAUGH]>>I go to Ross for all my bags.>>Yes, Ross.>>[CROSSTALK]>>You’re not a big fan of super expensive purses.
>>Nah, nah, nah.>>Do you own one?>>No.
>>No?>>No, people are like, you should be, no.>>No.
>>[LAUGH]>>Let me spend my money where I need to spend my money.
>>You’d rather spend it on to something else.>>Yes.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>I agree with that.>>[APPLAUSE]>>I think, I do love luxury items because of the way that they’re made.
>>Yeah, quality.>>Sometimes some items you’ll never see them again.>>[CROSSTALK]>>[LAUGH]
>>But I don’t need to have the whole matching luggage set and everything.
But I also don’t support getting knock off.
Because sometimes there’s trafficking connections to it.
>>Yeah.>>You never know, sometimes that bag will not last you wherever you go.
You might grab the handle, the handle will come with you but the purse is gonna be chilling.
>>[LAUGH]>>It will happen.
>>That is true.>>I’m not a fan of only bags that are super expensive.
Just the other day, I bought a bag at Urban Outfitters that was $26 and
I’m obsessed with this little bag. But I think that it’s not a knock off,
though. Does that make sense?
>>Yes.>>It’s just a little cute cheapie bag. There it is, that is [CROSSTALK]
>>That is so cute.>>It is cute, it was $27, thank you very much.
>>That’s cute.>>But you can just get a cute bag, it doesn’t have to be expensive. But I think it’s low key corny.
>>Yes.>>To wear a Fuchi bag like it’s like either the F’s of
the Fendi are wrong, or the G’s of the Gucci are wrong,
or the Chanel, it’s like. I think you should just get a bag that you
think is cute, but it doesn’t have to be a fake version of an expensive brand.
>>Yes, I agree with you 100%. Actually, it took me long
time to buy a designer bag. Do you guys remember? You guys,
you’re the ones that convinced me.>>But the reason why is because you are so frugal and conscientious.
>>Yeah, I’m very conservative with my money, honestly.
>>Yes.>>Yeah.>>So she doesn’t wanna splurge on herself, but yo, there’s some sister
sister coins in there that need to be spent.
>>[LAUGH]>>It’s called saving Jeannie, saving.>>The one time we went to Paris for Adrian and Israel’s wedding.
>>Yes.>>You went to the Mecca where the luxury bags are actually made.
>>I did.>>The actual country and you->>I have a Chanel bag and I absolutely love it.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>And it’s a classic.>>So you guys, I swear to God, here, when I purchased it,
the lady was taking my credit card and I was like, no, no, no, no.
>>[LAUGH]>>And then she was like, it’s an investment. You can give it to your daughter.
>>Yes.>>And then I was like, okay.
>>Yeah, it’s a classic bag that
absolutely [CROSSTALK].>>They do last forever.>>Can be passed down, yeah, they last forever.
>>You can pass down that Marshall’s bag, too.
>>[LAUGH]>>Pass that down.>>My god. Straight up.
>>But I do, yes.>>Let’s see what the viewers said. We asked you if it’s okay to splurge on a
designer handbag if you can’t afford them. So that’s the key thing,
if you can’t afford them. @simplytree said, it’s not okay to splurge on anything if
you can’t afford it, not even a meal. Stick to a budget until
you get where you want or need to be.>>That’s right.>>True.
>>Yes.>>@jdmarie also said, is it okay to jump off of
a bridge if you can’t fly? People do the craziest things for
the riches and diamond rings, Kanye West quote.
>>Okay, wow, that’s funny.>>Exactly and @sicktoriavartar said, I think it’s okay. Splurging and taking care of
yourself makes you feel good. That’s only more motivation to
do better and earn more coins so that you can buy more. I wouldn’t make it a habit if
you cannot afford it though, maybe just once.>>Okay.
>>[CROSSTALK]>>Balance, balance, balance.

  1. I bought my first LV 2 years ago on the pre-love market with pre-loved accessories. I waited 28 years to get one (since HS!!!!) Pre-love is not what it used to be, these are in excellent condition!!!! It’s ok to spoil yourself when you’re able to once in a while. But I waited to afford a house, car, and get all my bills paid first!!! It’s ok to spoil yourself responsibly once in a while!

  2. I’m more confident with having cash in my bank than hanging it from my arm because on a rainy day, things in your closet won’t help you a bit. Just sayin..

  3. I dont really care for bags.. I grater save that money for bills food and clothes for me and my kids.. I never been into designer bags..

  4. Personally I only have one bag I use (Hermès) and will have it until I die and will pass it on to my god child I have this one bag for 20 years now in mint condition I love it .

  5. My husband bought me a LV bag and I was about half way pregnant and I just couldn’t see myself accepting it knowing all the baby expenses. Although we could’ve afforded it, I couldn’t help but wonder all that money could’ve been spent on the baby or even a memorable vacation so I had him return it. One day I’ll finally come around tho

  6. Some of these luxury brands make there bags in China and sell it for thousands. Superfakes ($500) are practically the same thing as the luxury bag. Same leather and all

  7. I really don't care if it's real or fake, I'm neither here nor there. But I won't leave my bills unpaid for a designer handbag. Noooooooo way!! But I do love me some Coach, Fendi, and Victoria Beckham 😍😍😍

  8. These folks are being jealous of people who are living a luxurious life. They all have to make the same comment. I wonder how they would take someone with a different point of view than theirs. My point is, why do you care? and why do you have to indulge your nose in other's matter. Just because you can't afford it, doesn't mean others can't. Poor minds can only talk about people while successful people are busy talking about new ideas.

  9. I honestly don’t care for a bag and as far as shoes I’m a converses girl I guess I’m plain Jane 🤷🏽‍♀️

  10. I agreed what the hell, why do celebs think every other celebs have to buy expensive items like really, be wise not foolish, why buy so much items that’s expensive all the time when there’s other things which more important. Nothing is wrong in getting an item that is strong but but come on be wise.

  11. I have an small cute bag since I was about 14 years old that I had bought in st Thomas and I still have it and I’m 25. And I had bought it I think for $10.

  12. I get that it’s nice to splurge on yourself every know and then, but just remember that you have your life in order and what I mean is you have your bills paid, you got food in the refrigerator, if you have kids they their necessities. If you have enough money in your wallet and you see something that you want, I say go for it. Just don’t do it all the time to where you’re struggling the rest of the month.

  13. the girls of the real: makes the simplest statement ever
    the girls of the real: does that make sense

  14. I bought a classic Chanel bag at Neimans Marcus and in a year the handles on my bag was coming off stitching was also not so good i took it back to get fixed and they charge me and i waiting three months to get my bag back

  15. There is nothing wrong if you got the money and splurg on a bag but there is nothin wrong with a nick off bag neither! Honey CAUSE WALMART MARSHALS AND TH MAX AND EVEN SHOE STORS THAT SALE BAGS THEY AINT CHEAP NEITHER FOR REAL

  16. If you can’t afford the real thing than don’t buy it all. I would invest in quality handbags but paying thousands of dollars for one ain’t that deep 🤷🏿‍♀️

  17. Adri i love you hair like that beautiful tell yr styles thay your hair look better like that cause of your face

  18. I agree with Tiffany…everything man made is wear and tear especially when a person is a rough and don't care about stuff lol

  19. I sold three of my Louis Vuitton items within the last 3 months. I have two that I refuse to let go 🙅🏽‍♀️but I want a new bag. I’m going to get a new one. 💁🏽‍♀️👜

  20. There is nothing wrong with wanting luxury if you can't afford it don't go in debt trying to keep up with the Joneses

  21. I shop at Ross most times so much before I answer my client's question about where I get my daily outfit from, we all chorus "Ross"together. Lol. But I've been thinking of shopping at Macy's for more quality shoes and bags during sales and clearance.

  22. It's all going to get old and wore out just like the cheap ones. So I say spend wisely not foolishly.

  23. I wouldn't buy fake versions but I would buy dupes. Some items look almost identical but with different brand names on them

  24. My boyfriend bought my Chanel WOC. I hardly use it because I don’t have any specific occasion to go to. I recently bought a Lululemon belt bag that I am obsessed with because it’s so practical.

  25. I used to buy in Ross TJ Maxx a lot of these bags you know what I they fall apart the same way it peels also handles break off.. over the years I spent a lot of money and I don't own one of those bags. So as far as I'm concerned I think it's a waste of money. I rather spend on a leather bag knowing its going to last for long time I have to go buy it over again. I mean I am a Brooklyn girl. But moved to Florida and I have learned a lot over the years it's not worth buying those cheap bags that fall apart. If it's not leather I'm not going to buy it. I just feel it's a waste of money in the trash. That's the real real.. PS sometimes knockouts are better handbags and that's the reality. I don't see the difference between a knock off and a real bag but that's me… in reality every bag is made in Asia China and other countries the labels are put on when it comes to this country. Manufacturers are always in other countries. I look at items that were supposedly made in the United States and when you look down it says made in China the same thing goes for the bags there's no difference.

  26. Also tell me who walks around with thousands of dollars in the bag nowadays everything is plastic. Visa Mastercard American Express and other kinds of cards. Unless you want to get mugged or even worse taken So who wrote that is not very smart

  27. Yes it is an investment when you buy a great bag it is worth every single penny. It doesn't peel it's just completely perfect every single time you go for it

  28. Some women wearing the designer bags, have the latest iPhone or Samsung but be using EBT for groceries. 🙄

  29. I never cares for expensive things only nice good things (if you get me?😒) but don’t buy fake stuff just find deals no fake Michael Khor purse just get a discount purse

  30. Anything that's made of PVC will last a long time. Most people pay for someones name and boy they are getting rich.

  31. I'm 13 years old, I got a kate spade purse and I'm scared it's gonna get stolen or something and yes it's the most expensive thing I'm broke otherwise

  32. Id rather have less stress by having money in my account than walking around with a purse with no money in it. That’s all it’s really for lol

  33. Hmmm.Tbh with you. I don’t mind knock off bags.
    Let me give y’all my reality of it.
    I’m a college student.
    And I absolutely love the way LV (Louis Vuitton) bags look.
    But in my personal opinion
    (If I was the riches women in the world or dead broke)
    I don’t believe in paying 1k+ for a fucking bag.
    Rich or not..
    A bag that cost over the $1,000s
    To me that’s is unnecessary !
    I have a couple of MK purses
    Which I don’t mind paying a couple hundred for them.
    Especially for luxury bags I understand.
    But some bags be $5k
    Or $10k dollars
    And that is just so unnecessary to me…
    I want a LV bag but I swear I’m not paying 15k dollars for that.
    So I be going online to find really affordable high quality knock offs .
    Cause I’m not paying 20k for a freaking bag.
    Rich or not….

  34. If you can’t buy it twice you can’t afford it! H&M, Forever 21 etc have cute adorable & affordable bags! It’s all about how you style your look not on how much you spent on it!

  35. You should have a disabled person on the show as a host it would create a lot more diversity the panel although there is a lot

  36. Fakes are ridiculous but when a fake can appear so close to the real thing. I wonder if the real thing is worth the money…Like heck you gotta so some work if your product is so easily copied.

  37. I’m not buying the real thing . If someone buys it as a gift amazing but I’m not buying it myself . 😭😭😭😂😂😂

  38. A good rule of thumb is how much am I willing to pay for a purse? How much am I willing to pay for a phone? A car? A place to live? food? clothing. Set a limit on each item and be content with it.
