The "It" Bag and a Girl From Sociology Class
Whenever a girl vies for the latest “it” bag, it is probably because she wants to be the girl of the moment among her peers. That’s because the latest “it” bag is hard to get. You’ve got to be on a waiting list and if you’re on the same list as Olivia Palermo and you are able to get your hands on the “it” bag even before she does, then you truly deserve the status of an “it” girl.
Because the “it” bag is what separates a girl from the rest of her fashionista friends. Sure they have an expensive Chanel quilted bag but so does the girl from Sociology class and that girl over at the tanning salon. Any such bag you can find ubiquitously hanging from every fashionista girl’s arm, does not elevate one to the status of “it”-ness. For the “it” bag is just that: not only expensive but also elusive.
The "It" Bag and the Common Girl
The “it” bags are vied for not only by the super-rich who can easily afford them but also by anybody fashionable, regardless of their social status, though for the latter, of course, it requires a lot more personal sacrifices. If for the billionaire daddy’s little girl, such bag is but a drop of change for the mi Papa, for the common girl like most of us, vying for the “it” girl status could mean lots of overtime work at the local flower shop or saving up bus allowance for a whole year and walking in the blizzard-y winter cold knowing for sure that such hardships will one day land her on the “it” girl list with the latest “it” bag.
The “it” girl status truly is a fair game and it is not only for the super-rich but also for the persevering any one of us.
The "Low-End" High End "It" Bags of 2015
But there are “it” fashion pieces shown on the Spring 2015 runways that could be bringing some of our “it” girls to pass up their status this coming Spring. These “it” bags are very quirky and represent the opposite side of luxury. These “it” bags actually went all the way to the very opposite side of the luxury spectrum to the very realms of the society our “it” girls would normally not be associated with (see below).
The likes of Moschino, Anya Hindmarch, Charlotte Olympia have all joined this new quirky fashion trend which juxtaposes what represents the affordable with the expensiveness of their luxury brands.

Ashish plastic bag
So, my question is, if you are/were super-rich, would you be using your connections to be the first ones to get a hold of these quirky, "low-end" style bags? And for those of us girls who are just into the latest bags of the moment but don’t necessarily belong to the elite, would you sacrifice skipping a thousand Mcdonald’s lunches just to get your hands on a Moschino Mcdonald’s bag? Would you actually go almost homeless to look “homeless” sporting one of Ashish’s sequined plastic bag bags?
Would you sacrifice all these to be the latest “it” girl? I have been truly bogged down by these questions so I wanna hear from you fashionistas out there.
