my humble beginnings

  1. So I am a newbie bag collector *and* half my collection is currently in storage while we look for a new house.

    So here goes!

  2. love ferragamo - can't wait to see your other pieces!
     
  3. Next on our short trip through my collection.....my two coach hobos - one from 2006 - Black, and a 2005 in purple signature print. And one can't forget the matching black espadrilles!! Black from 2006

    Somewhere I actually have my first Coach purse, a classic flap in forest green from 1990! I'll post it when I can lay my hands on it.

  4. Ah how could I forget my Coach laptop bag my wonderful DBF got me when I left my corporate job and dived into the wonderful world of start ups!

    And...since I haven't gotten my hands on the Tod's tote I passed up (like a complete dolt) at the Carbozon outlets at Christmas.....here's what I use now. Rugby by Ralph Lauren - 2006 limited edition Black - notice the cute little skulls that give it that added kick ;)

  5. Thanks Nerdbox!! I had my eye on a ferragamo bag in burnt orange all summer/fall but wasn't able to wrangle the funds together before they sold out all over the US. Hopefully I'll be able to find one on eBay one of these days!
     
  6. Great collection.
     
  7. Ok so these two don't go hand in hand but oh well.

    Firstly my $30 find no name bag that is fun and worry free for spring/summer time. It's got a really cute antique looking fabric on the inside but it doesn't come out well in pictures.

    And then....my new Tod shoes I had to share! They were a Christmas gift from my DBF this year and are just gorgeous!

  8. The great deal I got today at the NM sale - my very first Balenciaga - I just liked the bag so I got it! I couldn't even tell you what the model and color names are. I tried to get a good shot of the color - it's an almost jewel blue.

    Maybe one of you ladies can educate me on this bag? I am smitten with it!

  9. :yahoo: And last, but not least!!! The pride and joy of my collection...my very first Chanel Bag. This darling is the black calfskin bowler from fall/winter 2006/2007. This was my #1 christmas gift from the love of my life!!! I am one lucky woman!!!:heart:
