We all love shopping, there is no denying that. But according to a new Forbes study, we love shopping for clothes a little less than we love shopping for one handy, normally expensive, accessory – the handbag.
The study showed that sales of this staple accessory grew 5% last year while the clothing category stayed the same.
Forbes reported that their findings show that woman are spending “more per bag and buying more bags overall.”
Gone the days of the staple bag that you tote around with you everywhere, now, we need a bag for work, the gym going out, travelling … the list goes on.
Guess we can start feeling less guilt when we are asked by our S.O whether we really need another handbag! The answer is always yes!
