Handbags vs. wine - the ultimate showdown

Jul 31, 2014

After a long day at work there are two things I want to do: 1) drink wine and 2) shop online for handbags. So I got to thinking, which one is better? Handbags or wine? I've decided I need your help. Here's where I'm at:

Handbags vs. Wine

You can take handbags places you can't take wine. Like work.
You can also take wine places you can't take handbags. Like __________ (I need you to fill in the blank here! My only idea is the gym, and I have to admit I take my bags there too.)

You can get cheap handbags and cheap wine. Sometimes you get lucky, but usually it's better to spend a little more to get what you really want. A good bottle of wine costs less than a good handbag, it's true, but when you factor in cost per use the bag is a better bargain.

You can spend more time with handbags than you can with wine. Granted, I like to spend a lot of time with wine. Particularly red. With cheese. But our bodies would shut down if we spent all our time drinking wine, and fortunately we can carry our bags until the cows come home.

  • Taste: Ok, wine wins here. Unless you count the emergency chocolate I always carry in the bag...
  • Smell: Wine smells delish, but so does a new bag! And old bags definitely smell better than old wine.
  • Feel: A soft leather (or vegan leather) bag is just heaven to touch. But if you count mouth feel, which all my favorite Food Network shows definitely do, wine is right up there.
  • Sound: Uncorking a bottle is such a festive sound! Wine wins this one.
  • Sight: While I do love staring down the wine aisle (all those yummy bottles!) I've got to pick handbags here. Imagine this: you go to a mall and you buy a bottle of wine and a handbag. Then you go to lunch with a friend. Which do you show off? The bag, every time. 

Your turn! Wine or bags? Any favorites I should look into... you know, for research?
