I'm happy that the 'it' bag phase has more or less passed. The entry level price just seemed to escalate to ridiculous levels, to the point where low income women were getting into ridiculous debt just to be fashionable.

It seems that the emphasis has now passed back to shoes, which is not necessarily a good thing. Now shoes have to be life-threateningly high-heeled, and the more fetishistic/porn star looking the better!

Fashion seems to be getting more misogynistic, or is it just me perceiving it that way? It either punishes your wallet, or it punishes your body, but preferably both!

In relation to your comments about shoes, take a look a this recent opinion piece in the New York Times. I think the comments are probably more interesting than the original commentary!
