Would You Rather: One Designer Handbag or Three Pairs of Designer Shoes?

Life is all about hard decisions, and lately we've been pondering either/or dilemmas like this one: If you had $1,250 to spend on accessories, would you drop it on a versatile royal purple Mulberry bag big enough to carry every single day, or take the cash and get three new pairs of designer shoes?

The price tag is just about the same, but the choice is yours. What would you do?


The Mulberry bag?




Or a pair of Marc Jacobs ankle boots, Valentino sandals and these edgy Giuseppe Zanotti pumps?
