if you had to choose…

shoes / bag

if given the choice between the two, which would you choose?

i’d choose a new bag probably 9 out of 10 times. i’m a purse hoarder. i don’t know what it is, but i just don’t have any self-control when it comes to a new bag. however, i also have a thing for gold. and wedges. so, those shoes might win. it’s tough to say.

i feel like i should also mention that i’m not actually planning on purchasing either of these items, i’m just curious as to what you would pick! but, let’s be honest, i would gladly take either of them.

  10. I have an obession with both… I have enough shoes and designer bags to last the rest of my life.. LOL! But definately love the bag here!

  11. To Buy: Bag (Because I already have a million shoes and I am also a sucker for a new bag)
    To Have & Wear Everyday: Shoes (I could go without carrying a bag but could NOT go without wearing shoes.) 😉

  12. I am a purse hoader! I know why too. It's because I love organization. Everything has a place inside a purse, backpack, or messenger bag. I hoard backpacks and messenger bags too. I actually have a back packing pack that I refuse to sell. I'll use it one of these days & I probably won't be in the forest. Haha! Esther Norine Designs

    I love the shoes!! I like the idea of a new bag, but given the choice, I always choose shoes. And I love gold, so these ones would win for sure!

  17. I'm more of a shoe person…and I love a good looking wedge.

    I usually go for the shoes over a bag. I love both dearly, but I unintentionally go for shoes first, when I really should be going for the bag. Sadly, I only own 3 purses and one is too small to put all my stuff in!

    I think it would have to be the bag — I just know I'd use it all the time. The wedges are so cute, but would be shoved in the back of my closet at least all winter, probably longer.

  30. Definitely the bag! Except, when you have kids, the precious purses get shoved away for the diaper bag!!

    I would love to see how you organize your purses. I have the hardest time with this!

  36. Bag for sure. I love metallic shoes but have never been a fan of wedges (no offense!) so the bag wins hands down, especially since it is so classy!

    That's a hard one! I love me some shoes but I'm also a bag lover! Especially if that bag is a Kate Spade!

  41. I would probably choose the bag, because I'm pretty frugal, and I would justify that I would get more mileage out of a new bag. 🙂 But like you said, I'd take either one! I love them both.

  42. A new bag would be lovely, but the only bag I carry around is a diaper bag :/ so I'll go with new shoes any day!

  43. bag. always bag.

    Posted 2.5.13 Reply
  44. No question – the bag! I too have zero self control when it comes to handbags. And clothes. And shoes. And makeup… let's face it, I would buy them both!

    Posted 2.5.13 Reply
  45. I'd definitely go for the bag! I have wayyyyy too many shoes and not enough bags! Plus, that Kate Spade one is so cute!

  46. Of these two, bag, but usually, shoes. I can't help myself. But I need to stop, because my shoes are infiltrating my husband's side of the closet.

  47. Before I had kids I would definitely pick the shoes. Now that I'm chasing after two little ones all day, I would pick the bag. It's nice to have a beautiful bag – even if it holds spare clothes, cheerios and wet wipes!

  52. Team bag, it feels more versatile than the shoes. That being said, in an imaginary world I would always choose both.

  60. I've already decided when I'm old I'm not going to be the crazy cat lady, but I'll be the crazy purse lady. I'll probably name them and talk to them.

    I'm a bag lady! I like shoes, but bags ALWAYS last longer so I'm more likely to buy them instead. I only buy "perfect" shoes (look GOOD, comfy, and go with MOST outfits) and only when I absolutely have to.
