If you thought a $550 Marc Jacobs leather hobo bag was expensive, odds are you won’t be picking up an 18-karat-gold, diamond-encrusted handbag any time soon. When buying a Chanel or a Louis Vuitton handbag, it’s no surprise it will come with a hefty price. A couple of thousand dollars is one thing, but there are actually some existent bags that have a six-figure price tag, costing as much as a car or even a house!

In case those names don’t make it clear, these little bags are packed with big ambition. Jemma wants its bags to serve the totality of a woman’s life, from 9 to 5, 5 to 9, and beyond.
Fashion is cyclical — wear a trend before it achieves mass appeal, and you’ll look cool and fashion-forward. To help you know the difference, we asked Polyvore to deep-dive into its search data, and tell us which dress styles spiked in 2015 — and which ones are fading faster than a summer tan in September.
A high-end designer bag is a bucket-list item for most women. But when considering a major purchase — A.K.A., the kind with a comma in the price tag — it makes sense to weigh your options carefully. That means thinking not only about the styles you love, but also looking for a bag so classic and well-made, it’ll hold its value even after years of use.

How much would you pay for this Louis Vuitton bag? Photo: Louis Vuitton Nobody ever said luxury handbags were cheap, but the price tag on one of Louis Vuitton’s carryalls is giving us serious sticker shock. According to Purse Blog, Vuitton has sold a handbag (made from traditional handbag materials, as they specified) almost as expensive as this one – the Crocodile Lady Bag PM, which went for $54,500. Currently, the house is selling the Dora PM handbag for $50,000 Vuitton says their City Steamer purse has “ample room for papers and files,” though we hope that’s not the only thing a wealthy woman-about-town would be holding in a bag so pricey.

Yesterday, Bloomberg reported that Michael Kors stock lost half its value in 2015, as sales of its once-hot handbags drops. Coach’s sales have been falling since 2014, too. Meanwhile, Kate Spade’s stock is up, a move analysts attribute to “de-emphasizing the handbag” in favor of apparel and other accessories.
