Apparently the the zipper busted, the leather and plastic tip on the heel came off, and there were worn patches on the upper part of the boot.
Now I have to ask myself, "What in the world did she do to ruin a pair of shoes in thirty minutes? Was she rock climbing? Running a marathon? Was she throwing elbows in a mosh pit?" Who knows?

Maybe I was too hard on it. I am the type when I find something I just love, I have the tendency to wear it out! But my friend's bag lasted a little more than a month when the straps broke.

Don't get me wrong, I love designer brands. I would love to be able to afford off-the-rack designer brands. But I am a fashion lover on a budget. So I guess the real question you have to ask yourself is,"Is it worth the price?"
For example, sunglasses. I never buy expensive sunglasses. Why, you ask? Well, when I was in high school I saved my money to buy a pair of Oaklelys (It was the 90's, don't judge me!). I was so proud to shell out one hundred of my hard earned dollars for a pair. Silver rims with blue lenses. I was cool for about one month, and then I lost them in the mall on a school trip!
From that moment I swore off expensive sunglasses, because I know I will just break or lose them! I guess what I am trying to say is if you are a lover of designer fashion and have expensive tastes, try consignment shops, and go vintage. Stick with a budget.
And if designer brands are not available to you, pick the pieces you like and look for something similar you can afford. Fashion trends are also easy to duplicate with out breaking the bank. You just have to be creative.
So when you find that to-die-for item you can't live without, stop and think. Is it worth it?
