“I used to buy good shoes; now I buy good bags. They make me feel more confident.”
The cost-per-wear concept has paid the greatest dividend for me in the bags I carry. I’m a busy girl, and prefer not to go through the hassle of changing my bag every day, so it’s imperative that I have one that plays nicely with all my clothes. Recently, I had to replace an old favorite—a B.Makowsky creation purchased at a steal of $90 at T.J. Maxx that had lasted me almost three years (carried every day, it had a cost-per-wear of a mere 8 cents)!!
I loved the B.Makowsky so much that I decided to look for another one, and scored again at T.J. Maxx–a red beauty for $140. I was a little nervous about it working with my entire wardrobe, but I’ve been carrying it for a couple of weeks now, and it meshes with everything quite nicely. Even if I only use it on weekdays for the next three years, the cost-per-wear will be under 18 cents. Not to mention that it adds serious polish to whatever I pair it with.
