Fashion Math: Is The Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag Worth $1,995?

From Mary-Kate Olsen to Leighton Meester to Kirsten Dunst, everyone is flipping for the Proenza Schouler PS1 Large Leather Satchel which just launched. The rich, soft leather bag ($1,995) is not only gorgeous, but convertible: with a crossbody strap and handle, it’s like two handbags in one.

Since the meaty price tag is comparable to a down payment on, say, a Ford Focus, perhaps a little fashion math will help justify it:

If you carried this bag every day for the next year, it amounts to about $6 a day – less than a fancy Starbucks drink and a scone, but still more than a regular coffee. If you have expensive taste, you know that a great bag actually last years – so the per diem is probably less than $6. I’m known as a fashion enabler among my friends – so I may not be a voice of reason here – but I say, go for it.
