    Thread: Ladies: Handbags

    1. 09-27-2006 01:29 AM #1
      For years now I've splurged on Coach bags, accessories, etc. Not as expensive as LV, Chanel, or Gucci, but definitely a treat here and there. I'm getting married next year, so I just bought my last purse for a loooong while.
      It's Vera Bradley for me from now on.
      What about the rest of you girls?

      im not a girl, but my mom and fiance both have some coach/dolche and gabana (sp?)
      my mom buys it for her most of the time as gifts for the holidays, but ive never seen the big deal in a $300 wallet
      i dunno if that helps at all, maybe its like me and car parts

      I bought my ex a handbag for Christmas one year... Not a pleasant experience. I didn't realize there were so many choices, damn. If it wasn't for the awesome sales girl at Neiman's I may have hung myself in the store. I ended up getting her a Dolce & Gabbana bag. It was nice.

      I bought my wife a Dolce Gabbana purse last year after I recieved a nice bonus. Usually she buys herself Coach stuff, which seems almost better quality than the damn $1100 purse.

      I'v bought my gf the following items which she all loves:
      3 Coach Wristlest
      2 Coach Bags: Both Limited Edition Ones
      1 Coach Wallet: medium sized one to go with purse
      1 Coach Leather Tote: for work
      1 Burberry Bag: I got an awesome deal on it at the Burberry store and her eyes lit up so that's done.
      1 Gucci Bag: My favorite one, with the horse bit on the site in the brown

      Yea, I spent about the same, and she had problems with it.... She's an ex now so, whatever... Haha. Her next BF can buy her a new one.

      I have a TON of Vera Bradley bags (maybe 15 or so), a Roxy/Quiksilver bag screened with a Beatles Yellow Submarine cartoon, a plum corduroy Levi's messenger bag, a pink satiny embroidered messenger bag that was a gift from my fiance, a Lucky Brand canvas and suede tote, a black LeSportSac hobo, and some other miscellaneous totes and backpacks.
      I very much want a L.A.M.B. bag and a Harvey's seatbelt bag. There's some more retired Vera Bradley I've got my eye on, as well.

      I don't care what name brand it is really. I have Coach, D&B, Guess, Gap, Express, etc. I love clutches!
      I don't believe it blowing hundreds on purses. I will only spend a hefty dollar if it's a bag that I know I will get a lot of use out of (i.e., black purses)

      I just bought my wife a "tire" bag from Switzerland. They make bags out of recycled plastics and rubber.

      just got my gucci bag and wallet ... kind of family tradition for the mothers to buy it for their daughters. mom threw in the wallet because shes cool as hell.
      i have vera, coach, liz has nice bags so does kenneth cole. wow i cent even focus to think of what i have ... a closet section worth though.
      cant really spend the money anymore though so i'll be in the same boat as you.

      Wow in comparison my purse collection is definitely cheap and eclectic.
      I love vintage bags, or ones made out of strange objects (I was carrying cigar boxes long before I started seeing them in the stores).
      I have a hello kitty purse and wallet collection that is the envy of every girl under ten years old that I know.
      I have a lot of purses from Asia and the Philippines, one of my favorite being the chinese takeout box done in silk.
      If I won the lottery tommorow I think I'd splurge on LV pieces... I love the structured pieces... I'm glad this slouchy-hobo phase is passing... I'm strictly a handbag sort of gal... no mom straps allowed.

      Its better to invest into ONE quality piece that you will have for life then spend the same amount of money on 10 fakes that will fall apart in a week [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      I am a dedicated coach girl. For the fast few years it is all I have ever owned. I take care of them so they look in really good condition. Just picked up a new one this weekend and few belts for a friend. But I must confess - I only shop at the outlets.

      Love this thread...I was looking through the fashion forum and it seems to be predominately male...surprisingly enough.
      I am obsessed with designer bags...seriously...obsessed.
      I rock a lot of Coach stuff on a daily basis...I love the limited editions and the patchwork.
      My latest obsession is Gucci's 85th anniversary collection...I would be lost without my boston bag and my horsebit bag.
      Lastly...I leave my luggage to Louis Vuitton. Have the Keepall 55, the medium beauty trunk, and I just bought the new Carryall as a birthday present to myself. I have a lot of bags to get rid of too so if you are remotely interested...check the FS thread every now and then.

      Anything you might want to sell currently? My wife's into those crazy designer bags. I've learned to appreciate some of them, but I still think the prices are ridiculous . She's currently eyeing a Chloe bag.
