Fashion Math: Is A Chanel Chain Strap Bag An Investment?

December 10, 2009 by Jeanine Edwards
shefinds | Style

When you think of the things just about every woman wishes to own someday, Chanel item ranks high on the list. Aside from a nail polish or a bottle of perfume, it’s near impossible to find something with the chic double C logo that doesn’t have a four-digit price tag.

This quilted suede bag is no exception. At $988, it’s a pricey purse, and the price isn’t for everyone. But we wondered what would be the price, spread out among years of use?  It’s totally worth it in our dreams–we wanted to see if we could make it worth it in reality.

fashion math

If you wear this classic chain strap bag just 6 months out of the year (not even every day) for the next 25 years–(or pass it on as an heirloom) that works out to about a .35 per wear–equivalent to a Juicyfruit gum pack with just five sticks. Factor in that this can be passed down for generations–since it’s timeless, your daughter or granddaughter can treasure it too.  No need to thank us for this one–we’re all about making dreams come true.
