I am a Coach leather purse girl all the way. I like several of their styles and my briefcase is also Coach. Goes without saying that I have their wallet, change purse, sunglass case, tote bag, etc. Sheesh, I probably should branch out

I love handbags. I am literally a bag lady, I could start a store. I used to be a Coach girl, but lately they have no good designs and so many people buy them just for the sake of it. They have also raised the prices so much that you could move into the catagory for a higher end designer for the same money. I still use the ones I have, but I haven't bought a new one in at least a year.

In March I got myself my first Fendi and I love it. I buy a lot of Micheal Kors lately. My newest bag is a Michael Kors and I get so many compliments and people asking me what it is.

I have a huge Italian leather bag by a company called The Find and strangers come up to me asking where I got it.

Another brand of really good quality is Lovcat Paris. There are very few stores of it in the US, but the bags are really cute.

Of all the most popular designers, I am most disappointed by LV. I only have one LV and I think the quality is low compared to Fendi and all my Coach bags.

And if you don't like to spend 100+ dollars on bags, Kathy Van Zeeland has really hot stuff for $50 to $80. I have 3 of those and always got compliments on them.

I love Coach. I have 2 bags, 2 wristlets and a wallet. I think my husband is partial to Coach also as he bought most as gifts for me. I also have a Kate Spade bag that I've been using lately.

Purses are an annoyance for me, so usually just carry a small wallet from Wilson Leather. However, on the times I need a satchel for carrying larger items (like a briefcase), will use the free bag I got from Coldwater Creek, is very nice looking, sturdy and large enough to carry reports, books, files, etc.

I don't switch purses very often...I've been carrying the same one for over 5 years. Mine is a black, soft, leather perlina. My daughter thought it would be a good bag for me, and since it was on sale, I bought it. I have not regretted the purchase. Except for a couple of the zipper tabs falling off, it's still in good condition, even after I ran over it with my car!

I'm a handbag w_h_o_r_e.

My bags range from Chloe and Fendi to Kooba and Hayden-Harnett.

My most recent handbag purchase was my Fendi Fortuny Hobo Spy.


ETA: If money was no object, then I'd get myself an Hermes 35cm croc. Birkin...haven't decided what color yet.


As for what's carried around here...you name it! Hermes, LV, Chloe, Coach, Balenciaga, D&B. I tend to see a lot of the LV mono (of which I'm not a fan.)

I used to be a Coach gal myself but the recent influx of them around town has turned me off. Still an enthusiast but it doesn't carry as much "specialness" to it as it once did for me. My very first Coach purse was a high school graduation gift from Mom and I fell in love with the brand ever since.

I LOVE Fossil. My current "everyday" bag I bought from Fossil and absolutely adore it. Nowadays, I just buy what I like, brand is no biggie. One day, It'll be nice to own a Birkin but until then, I'll settle for "cute" and cheap.

My mother-in-law lives on Long Island, so about 2x per year she goes into the city to buy bags. We still don't know if they are knock-offs or the real thing, but she gets some pretty good prices. For my daughter's 2nd birthday she brought her a LV. This was how I found out about her "connections" in the city. I thought it was a real one and called her crazy for spending so much on a 2 year old. Turns out she got it for $15. I compared it to a friend's real LV and we cannot tell the difference.
