  5. do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..?
    I don't prefer "luxury brands" at all. I just like what I like, and the less it costs, the better.

    do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way?
    I guess the Chanel-Inspired classic flap is certainly one of my favorite styles, at least right now! I have 3 very charming NotChanels, that no one who has ever even seen an actual Chanel would accuse of being Chanel products, even at a distance of 20 yards, but I get a big kick out of them, especially the insouciant rhinestone "X" on the clasp where the initials would be!

    what is the maximum you have splurged on a designer handbag?
    Well, I am 54, so my closet is naturally going to contain its share of famous names amassed over the years, but the only time I recall ever having "splurged" on a bag simply because of the brand name, it was back in 1964, maybe 65, when I finally persuaded my mother and grandmother to let me splurge $12 of their money on a John Romain bag because that was what all the most popular little girls had. :biggrin:

    do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!"
    I do not make "expensive designer purchases." I can't say that I have planned to buy a bag every time I have bought a bag :smile: I have certainly seen bags that I just had to have, like the one in my avatar (Clearance at Target!)

    would you spend your cash on a day wear / casual designer bag or u'd rather get a ultra glam dressy bag?
    As mentioned, I don't really do "designer" bags, but any bag I buy at this time would definitely be a bag for day wear. There is no way I could justify purchasing any more evening bags than I currently possess!

    A little bit about youself, your interests, where you like hangin out, fav magazine...etc.
    My interests are varied, I believe somewhere on my profile here I have indicated that it would be easier to list the things that do NOT interest me. I like hanging out with my husband, family, friends, and the only time I ever even leaf at magazines any more is when I am waiting to see a doctor or have my hair done, and on those occasions I am apt to pick up something having to do with fashion or gardening.

    Pretty much anything I might wish to read in a magazine I can read on the internets, where I can increase the font size. :p
     
  6. Lushk, my answers aren't going to be helpful but anyway here goes:

    do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..?
    If I had to go for luxury brands, I'll choose individualistic small luxury brands.

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way?
    Too many to mention; OK maybe the Jas MB slitter bag (available at Barneys) Not much hardware, simple yet classy (IMHO).

    :heart: what is the maximum you have splurged on a designer handbag?
    I've never bought a designer handbag in my life. Maximum amount spent on a handbag - around $50 (bought a leather handbag while on holiday in Turkey many years ago, never used it when I got home).

    :heart: do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!"
    Not applicable because I don't intend to make a designer purchase unless I strike the lottery. :smile:

    :heart: would you spend your cash on a day wear / casual designer bag or u'd rather get a ultra glam dressy bag?

  7. :heart: do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..? Both

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way? Hermes Birkin, it's the ultimate in quality and design IMO

    :heart: what is the maximum you have splurged on a designer handbag? Around 2000$ give or take.

    :heart: do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!" Both, but more often it's planned as most of my shopping is done while traveling, where I live doesn't offer many choices in luxury shopping.

    :heart: would you spend your cash on a day wear / casual designer bag or u'd rather get a ultra glam dressy bag? Either a casual designer bag or ultra glam

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way? right now, I am really enjoying my balenciagas and would like to have more. I like both the quality and appearance of the bags and that no one where I live knows what they are so that they can be a "secret indulgence"

    :heart: do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!" I do not make many expensive designer purchases, but when I do it is definitely that I see something that I want.

    :heart: would you spend your cash on a day wear / casual designer bag or u'd rather get a ultra glam dressy bag? casual, I do not go too many places where an ultra glam dressy bag would be appropriate

  10. :heart: do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..? small luxury brands

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way? For me, a large Bottega Veneta woven tote because the leather is so nice, workmanship superb, will never go out of style, and it would hold a lot (I like to carry a lot).

  11. :heart: do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..?
    I like both

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way?
    Hermes Birkin or Kelly. It almost seems like the "ultimate" purse...one that every purse lover ultimately aspires to owning. Maybe it is because of the wait lists, price, and quality which makes it so desirable

    :heart: what is the maximum you have splurged on a designer handbag?
    $1600 CDN on a balenciaga

    :heart: do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!"
    I usually intend to buy them

    My fave mags are Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. I am currently a student taking anthropology, but would love to go to school for fashion.
     
  12. :heart: do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..?

    I like whichever brand is producing the (handcrafted) designs I love, in beautiful materials, ideally without obvious logos.

    :heart: do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way?

    One of them would probably be a (non exotic leather) Bottega Veneta, at the moment, as the designs are gorgeous, the logos are subtle and the quality and make are second to none. I also love Roberto Cavalli's Art Nouveau Print Satin Roll Clutch and Alexander McQueen's Mini Novak with Dragon Clasp (Please see below.). Derek Lam's bags are also lovely.

    As I say, I love designer bags for their design and quality, not for their status, so the most desirable bag, for me, is always the most beautiful one.

    :heart: what is the maximum you have splurged on a designer handbag?

    £770 ($1,515) for this fish scale leather Mini Novak with Dragon Clasp:

    :heart: do you usually intend to make expensive designer purchases or you just end up buying something you hadnt planned to because "you just had to have it!"

    A bit of both. In the past I have made impulse purchases, thankfully, very few I've regretted; but my purchases are more considered now. The above bag was my first new bag in almost two years, as I decided that I had enough for a while and was spending my spare cash on other things. I saw it and I knew I liked it, but I decided to wait a while and make sure I really liked it before splashing out.

    :heart: would you spend your cash on a day wear / casual designer bag or u'd rather get a ultra glam dressy bag?

    More often than not, I get seduced by the beautiful designs of clutches and evening bags, but as I also carry clutches during the day, I don't mind too much.

  14. do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..?
    i prefer whichever bag i lay my eyes on, don't really care about the brands. i'm looking for the quality first

    do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way?
    balenciaga motorcycles line. because it's quality.
    it's expensive because of the quality, not juts because it's brand.

    i love W mag, glamour, teen vogue, V
     
  15. do you prefer 'out-there' big luxury brands or individualistic small luxury brands..? Out of the two individualistic small luxury brands appeal to me more.

    do you think is the most desirable bag? and what about it makes you think that way? A bag that's well made, has a nice idea, is one of a kind, has a vintage feel, preferably leather, a bit of sparkle, that to me is a desirable bag.

    I have gotten some as presents, but never bought myself.
