Breaking out of Black Bag Bondage

  1. You know what it is: thinking if you spend a lot on a bag, you SHOULD get it in black because it'll be 'timeless.'

    It's only been in the past couple of years that I've been able to get past that and start buying better bags in 'gasp' COLORS!

    How about you?
     

  2. I wear black all the time so I always buy color handbags to punch things up a bit. I love bright handbags! I think I only have one black handbag. I find that colors are a lot more versitile than people think.
     
  3. I'm trying!!!
    I kept my closet Black and Brown for years! Just recently I got some blue and red in there.

    It's a hard habit to break. Mom taught me to buy things that match everything.

  9. I'm the same way! I have tried buying colorful bags but they just end up sitting in my closet forever. Black and brown bags are so easy to coordinate with outfits...I'm trying to expand, really I am. But it's hard!
     
  10. ALL of my bags are black and I have no plans on changing that anytime soon. :p
     
  11. I've always bought black too, but lately I've been eyeballing a white bag...I'm not sure that much more adventurous than black though, at least during warm weather! :p
     
  12. All of my bags are colored with the exception of a Kooba Mackenzie clutch. That's my only black bag but I would like a larger one so I'm still on the lookout for one.
     
  13. I am slowly falling out of love with black bags... I m
     
  14. I am slowly falling out of love with black bags... I mean, I have some, but I will look for other colors too.
     
  15. I still love a good black bag with my black clogs and jeans. I also carry cognac and red with a blue bag on it's way.
