Do you wear designer handbags or any handbag that appeals to you?

I haven’t actually bought a purse since college, but I love getting designer purses from my mom and my sister. My mom always gets classic Coach purses that she passes on to me, and my sister tends to get funkier, younger designers. I don’t actually love them enough that I would pay for them, but it’s great to have the free versions! ;)

I carry whatever I see that I like. And I always get compliments on my purses. I don’t own any designer bags, but a few of my friends do. One friend loaned me a gorgeous Michael Kors bag because it was my favorite color, but it felt absolutely awful to carry. I’ve never carried a Coach bag, but another friend has a ton of them. Maybe I should borrow one to test out.

I prefer designer.  I have a few LV, but only buy a new one every 3 or 4 years, and don’t buy any other bags.  I think it’s funny that people say LV is expensive, cause like you said, for 7 Coach, you can buy an LV so at the end of the say the same amount is spend on handbag.  It just depends on what you want.  For me, I rather have one LV than 5 Coach.

I don’t really like designer anything. I guess I’m really frugal in that area.

I bought a fossil maddox stachel in black and its the best purse I’ve ever owned, not too big and not too small. It’s a fantastic leather bag.

@MRS-K:  Designer. Love my new Tory Burch my SO got me for Xmas! I don’t buy them often but I find that they last way longer. I have some Coach and the TB. One day I might splurge and get a really good designer/high fashion one, but at the moment other things take priority and I can’t justify spending $1,000+ on a bag!

I prefer designer just because I personally find the quality to be better. I don’t care for the designer names much and (Coach-wise) always get a leather one without all the “C” symbols everywhere. I still buy other brands that appeal to me but they never last all that long depending on the quality.

I love high-end designer handbags – YSL, Gucci, Prada, LV, Chanel, Hermes, Cartier, etc

To be honest, I haven’t bought/owned a coach since maybe high school. Like you mentioned, you can purchase 7 coaches for the price of one high-end bag and I guess I prefer the latter.

I don’t own any designer handbag. I would gladly accept one as a gift but I wouldn’t go out and buy one myself, at least not anytime in the near future (the joys of being a poor college student). I was given a fossil purse once, that’s the most expensive one I own. I’ve orded a few from Ruche, but most of mine come from Target.

I don’t own a single designer bag.  I’ve been carrying the same 20 dollar cheapie for three years.  I wouldn’t turn it down if somebody gave it to me but I’m just not crazy enough about purses to spend too much money on them.
