    3. Why are handbags so important to you? They don't really represent anything to me, but I like them because I can wear a hanbag I sink 1200$ into everyday if I want, whereas if I bought a 1200$ dress I couldn't wear it everyday.

    5. What do you believe is the best handbag of all time? Although I don't like it, it would have to be the LV monogram speedy, it's been around forever and it's still an appropriate and sought after bag, it has to have amazing design quality to be able to maintain even staying power, so the fact that it has remained fashionable AND sought after is amazing IMO.

  4. 1. Jennifer
    2. The blame falls entirely on a friend from college. I never even thought about designer bags until I met this girl my freshman year. She was very wealthy and had a TDF collection of both the classics (LV speedy) and the "it" bags (Balenciaga motorcycle). She bought me a small Prada pochette for my birthday and the rest is history.
    3. They're important to me because I need to schlepp around all my junk. They represent status - although not many people are willing to admit it, a designer handbag generally elevates other people's impression of the person carrying it.
    4. My favorite designer for bags is currently Chanel.
    5. Best handbag of all time IMHO is either the Chanel classic flap or the Hermes Birkin.
    6. Next on wishlist is Chloe python silverado

    2. How did your bag addiction start? It started when I signed up on eBay to bid on a small designer bag for a gift to someone. The light bulb when on that I could consider a designer bag for myself. Bought a few vintage bags,liked them, decided to tip-toe into a real store to look at new bags and it's been a passion ever since.
    3. Why are handbags so important to you? What do they represent? I feel good when I carry a nice bag; I enjoy the styling, the materials; I appreciate having something that's practical--carrying the essentials--that also makes me happy. A good handbag represents for me that I can be stylish even tho I'm not a size 2 and can't apply make-up like a pro; I can still wear something that says I'm special.

    3. You can express yourself with a bag, and they turn a simple outfit (jeans/cashmere sweater etc) into a wow outfit! I dress conservatively so my bag is my something special

    2. In ninth grade I noticed a lot of girls had designer bags and they just looked so nice, and I bought my first bag--a Dooney and Bourke. It was love from there, and though I haven't bought very many since then, I still love to look.
    3. I got to a small, expensive private school where girls are judged a lot by the type of bags they carry, and consequently logo bags are very popular because a girl wants everyone to know who made her bag. But I like bags that are great quality, great color, and just look original and beautiful. I don't care if they're easily recognizable, which is why I love a lot of indie-designers.
    4. I love Begeren, Botkier, and Hayden-Harnett.
    5. I really don't know have the authority to answer that...I love my Begeren Moorea tote, I've got to say.
    6. Botkier small Bianca bag in Concord or the Hayden-Harnett Celina pouch in Ink. :love:
