I love vintage Coach!

I have been picking them up cheap and refurbishing them for years. They are classics.

I have a Chloe Paddy that is a limited edition, so only 50 were made.

I have a Fendi Fortuny that is pretty rare and the leather design is too expensive for counterfeiters to knock off.

I have a lot of Koobas that I purchased way before they became popular. I think they may have even been manufactured in the states (before they started outsourcing to China.)

Oh and I do carry Coach as well....just can't break the old habits....

Now if ya wanna talk shoes..........

Etienne Aigner was the brand I was about to reccommend, since they have been around forever, and their stuff holds up amazingly! I still have a wallet, bag, and boots that match (their siggy burgandy color), that were my grandmother's in the late 70's early 80's. They are back in style and look almost new.

I also love their new "vintage" line, especially the 60's bag.

I get complimented on it almost every day.
I really like Hype bags, I plan to buy another in a few weeks. Super stylish and for a great price (<$200). Can't beat that.

I love bags and I have a ton. I have way more Coach than anyone should (started when I was 19 and just kept going) and a few Fendi, LV and other recognizable brands.

But the older I get, I am starting to get sick of A) so many people having the same bag as me and B) seeing so many disgusting knock offs floating around. So I am starting to branch out to other less logo-obsessed and less faked designers as well to just change up my collection a bit.

Any of you ladies admire or buy bags of other designers outside the typical Gucci, Coach, Louie, etc.? Would love to hear about everyone's taste and maybe learn about some new brands.


My most recent handbag purchase was a Rebecca Minkoff. I LOVE her bags now and can't wait to get my hands on another. Would really recommend her if you like soft, smooshy leather.

I have also been admiring TANO brand handbags lately, and would love to add one of those to my collection soon.

I adore Balenciaga and all the wonderful colors, but I totally can't afford one!

I think everyone and their mothers have the NYLON Coach bags as they are less expensive than the actual leather ones. I stopped buying nylon a few years ago, as I figured it was a waste of money and like you said everyone has one. I've cut back on the big purse spending after I bought my first Prada 2 years ago. I've recently started scouting random boutiques for little known designers, just so I could have something different. My favorite right now is Brynn Capella; the company is local and the clutches are adorable and affordable.

I am a vintage Louis lover but Botega Venetta has gorgeous bags! Lana Marks and Todds also. Cole Haan bags are very well made and not too pricey.

Kate Spade and Furla are much less common, and still pretty well made.
