I am very interested in beautiful handbags. I like to collect pictures of new fashion handbags. In my spare time, I go to shopping with my elder sister and buy the new fashion handbags. I believe a fashion handbag is an indispensable thing for fine lady and young girls. I also like new fashion handbags very much.

Ladies usually likes vogue bags,vogue bags are absolutely necessary for who wanna be fashion. But vogue bags such as LV GUCCI always expensive, many can't able to afford it.But I find it difficult to buy a satisfying handbag until recent days. I find a online shop named Moderator cut: spam. So I have bought a Christain Dior bag from it, I like its design and the color is my favorite black.The bag is suitable to put my white ipod in it. I also found some other brands handbags such as LV Chanel etc. Maybe next time I will try to buy another brand handbags.

I'm mostly looking for stuff like a tote bag and some shoes like pumps and boots. If I can find a good deal on stuff like coats, blazers and sunglasses that would be great.

I checked out the web and there were some websites which listed certain stores as really great places to shop for amazing deals. For those of you who have gone to LA and shopped, how are these places?

Those bags are fake.

Buy a classic bag you'll use for years. Don't buy a bag simply because it has a logo.

I have a $300 Cynthia Rowley bag (designer yes, but not logo'ed up) that I get compliments on every day. Coach and LV Logo is played out and tacky, IMO.

I have a Cole Haan that I have been toting around most of this year. It was about $300 more or less and is in a dark camel color that I love. But I am going to a Coach outlet store later this month when we go out to Sou. California so I may return with a bargain.

Check out bagborroworsteal.com where you can "rent" coutoure handbags. I could not believe it when I heard of this website, but it's true. You can rent handbags such as Chanel, Versace, Gucci and more. When you are finished, send it back and choose another. Has anyone here ever used this service?

I would agree with just buying a classic looking handbag if you can't afford many.

Coach, Marc Jacobs and probably almost any designer you can think of, they mostly all carry leather bags in addition to their logo bags. Many brands even started out with plain leather and went more into logos as it became a craze.

If you just get a black or rich brown leather you can use it for years.

I buy both leather and logo, but I get 2 to 4 new bags a year. I definately wouldn't want all logos all the time.

If you are looking for discounts, try a Coach outlet. There you will find real Coach bags, they are either last season or styles that didn't sell well or there was a surplus etc. but they are still real. I am not too familiar with the site you posted, but I don't trust many sites that claim to have discounts on designer stuff. I am very good at spotting real vs fake, but if you're not they can try and take advantage of you.

My very favorite handbags are by Ralph Lauren and I bought them all used on eBay. Nice leather, zippered enclosed and good design. I splurged once and bought a Keiselstein-Cord fringed shoulder bag with a sterling alligator on it. I love the Chrome Hearts bags, but they are too expensive.

That site is definitely fake. They have Hermes Birkins for $500! Birkins cost $10,000+ and are hand crafted, and there is an over 2 year waiting list for them

I have never spent more than $20 for a bag in my life. I have a simple black leather bag that I got at the flea market. When it wears out I will buy another that looks just like it.

Sorry, but I have more important uses for my money.

Omg! I can't believe there are people out there that would believe that a Birkin is $500! I am suprised the site doesn't get shut down. I didn't even look on the site and now I have a feeling I never should.

I hate fakes rah

I bought a Cole Haan black back over the summer for $275. It's lightweight and goes with everything. It's classy and well made and comfortable. Most of all, it fits within my budget and last me several years of daily use. I also have no trouble buying some of the $16 bags at Forever 21. You can actually find some cute bags in that store!!!
