Love it all!!! And you're not the only one who isn't gaga over the cles... I returned mine and put the $$ toward a bag.

I didn't mean to... But when I was at Saks (returning a bag I just didn't love love), they had the perfect warm color Michael Kors bag I was looking for on sale. Okay, that's one bag scratched off the list of what I'm allowed.

Last year I hit eBay and found a Chloe Bay for £80 - my beater bag, great for weekends and appalling weather. I also won a purple patent Prada - my day-to-evening bag. Finally I got my two HG Bals.
I posted in another thread yesterday that I wanted to have a year without any bag purchases. Of course, this morning I woke up with an all-consuming need for something Chanel lol.
Seriously - this is a year I really do want to shop from my closet.

What a festive color to ring in the new year!

My goodness you all have such nice big collections!


I have only 5 handbags and 2 wallets, some of my handbags are terribly neglected. This year I will join you and use them all!

Don't really know the color --looks like Kelly green and is so bright and lovely). As you can see I need warm colors (red or yellow) or even a nice bright turquoise to fill in the gaps. If a find a good preloved bag that needs a home, great but won't go out of my way for that. No more than 3 though. Totally going to print this photo out and post in my closet to reference when doing the "what am I going to wear dance?".

Back to front roll call:
LV bucket, Rebecca Minkoff travel tote, Badgely Mischa in ice, Rebecca Minkoff in elephant, Tory Burch, Coach, Coach, Coach black (first bag bought - 2001), Kate Spade little Nadine, Rebecca Minkoff, MbMJ, Coach Bleeker 2007 (wedding gift from husband).

Congrats on a beautiful and diverse collection!

Purple is my favorite color. Love your bal! I know what you mean about the urge!

It's a great medium shoulder bag that gives me the classic feel of a Chanel flap, without the price tag that I don't believe I could ever bring myself to pay. Since I have to work this week and travel to Northern California to visit family and attend a string quartet concert this weekend, I thought that this would be a perfect bag for all of those events. I'm planning on carrying this flap through this weekend and, possibly, into next week.

Beautiful Madison to start the new year!

Love all your pouches in your LV. So organized!

I love when I use a bag and continue to use it - the longest I've used a bag straight is about a month.

would love to see a pic of your Brahmins and perhaps get a review, I've heard so many people talk about them but never came across one irl.

lovely bag! And lovely insides. I'm with you about the cles - have one and don't love love it but it is in use. IMO I think its dimensions are just a little too small for my liking. A tiny bit more room each way and I think I'd love it. I'm talking just millimeters.

recently saw dooney bags irl and find myself thinking about them. If I find a good deal, I can see myself picking one up

Beautiful color and love the style! Hey, at least it was a 'one in one out' sort of situation great bag to ring in 2014.

Love this thread and reading everyone's stories. I was lucky enough to get overwhelmed quickly when I first started the addiction, and it didn't take long for me to purge my tiny collection as quickly as they built up.

Today I carried the last bag I bought a little over a month ago. I have one bag that I know I will purchase early this year, so that's one down :) but for the time being, I will just enjoy what I have.

Happy new year everyone!

Lovely! And you're definitely not the only one who isn't in love with the cles. I had a denim one for years that I used very rarely before I finally realized that the cles was just not for me.

Thank you for all the lovely comments about my Violet (isn't it nice to have a thread that makes you appreciate what you have rather than making you want to run our and buy something new!) - here's a little butt shot :-)

This is a beautiful bag! What a nice color. I have never seen a Bal IRL but love them in all photos I see.
