Extravagant Handbags in The World

By Ruth Perez

Handbags play different roles for different individuals. For some, they are a practical accessory that allows them to keep their stuff and not struggle with carrying them around while traveling and going about their daily business. It is also an expression of style for some people like it is used in branding or branding oneself.

For others, handbags can be an extravagance that contributes to the total value of someone’s assets. Some choose the most expensive bags as a way of flaunting their affluence and others take pride in having only the finest things even if everyone else has it too. If you know how much high-end handbags cost or what makes them so costly, then this extravagant purse worth thousands of dollars should make sense to you:
