I really need to slow it down with the handbags, though. I’m becoming hoarder status, like I was getting to be with makeup. Except I may have ordered another Kooba last week….and it may have only been one of like 10 I’ve bought in the past few months. I really need to stay off Poshmark. Now there are more bags on here I am holding myself back from looking up.

des- :  Many Balenciaga come with a crossbody strap, and even the moto bags have shoulder straps. Mini bags have crossbody straps. My first bag has a shoulder strap.

The only issue BBag fans had with the larger City bags is the “warming” of the handles and the large hardware made it heavy. But I still really liked using my City bag when I was in college (sold it because it was too large for daily stuff when I was done with school). I used to like big bags, but I just put so much stuff in them, so I just do moderately mini-sized bags now.

hungrymeow :  Thanks, that’s helpful to know. I like big bags, so that’s not an issue for me. I don’t care much for crossbody bags, though. 

Ive had the same issue with some of my Koobas. Particularly their earlier bags tended to be a pretty heavy leather. By the time you’ve added just basic essentials, not even anything particularly heavy, you feel like you’re carrying around a bunch of bricks. I remember times I’d go out wearing one of my former favs, once we’d walked around a while, I’d have my man carrying my bag because my shoulder would be hurting! It does seem to vary pretty widely though. Some of the newer models are light, one I thought was poorly constructed AF and am selling, and then some of the other new ones are the same high quality leather. It makes it difficult to blind buy.

So many boogie folks itt.  I didn’t realize we had so many rich folks here- lots of $3k+ bags considering so much of this board thinks a $8k engagement ring is totally insane.

 

I carry an $80 backpack daily because NYC life doesn’t allow me to have a cute bag and also carry my laptop and everything else.  My “fancy” bag is a coach rouge but I don’t carry it often because…laptop probs. I keep telling mysef I’m going to get a vintage chanel quilted crossbody but I cant rationalize it when it’s so impractical for my daily life.
