  6. *Age 24
    *What items do you carry in your handbag on a day to day basis? Eg-mobile phone, purse etc


    Wallet, phone, mascara, concealer, small perfume bottle, hand sanitizer (nyc subways are disgusting), and a small tube of lotion, and anything i need for school

    *If you were going out for the night and were only taking a small bag or clutch, what things would you take with you? Eg money, mobile phone etc

    usually i don't bring my wallet - i clip some money, an ID and a credit card together. Then of course my phone, masacara and consealer and that's it.

    *When out shopping for a new handbag what do you look for?

    For a school bag - can i put all my school stuff in it and will it be confortable on my shoulder.

    For a everyday bag - comfort, convience, style and will it hold all my neccessities.


    *Is there anything your handbag doesn’t do that you would like it to do? Eg- hold more items etc

    I bounce between my LV Pouchette and Speedy 30 - so i either have too little room or too much room -- i think i need to get a new bag :smile:

    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?

    As of right now, no more than $600. I'm still in school and need to watch my spending. When I finally get out that price will definiitly change.


    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?

    yes

    *Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you?

    yes

    *Are there any other comments you’d like to make about handbags?

    I believe you show who you really are through your handbags: classic, trendy, minimalist, etc.

  8. *Age 17 (and male)

    *What items do you carry in your handbag on a day to day basis? Eg-mobile phone, purse etc


    I usually take my cell phone, wallet/checkbook, coin case, a small bottle of cologne, keys, pens, a paper pad/small notebook, and occasionally a book.

    *If you were going out for the night and were only taking a small bag or clutch, what things would you take with you? Eg money, mobile phone etc

    I would bring a small money clip instead of a wallet, my keys, and a cell phone.

    *When out shopping for a new handbag what do you look for?

    I look for longer straps, durribility, monochromatic and neutral colors, and designs that are relatively simple and classic, but stand out from basic styles and have different details that I have not seen in other bags.

    *Is there anything your handbag doesn’t do that you would like it to do? Eg- hold more items etc

    I would like handbags to have more small pockets so that it is easier to find and store items and more comfortible straps and handles.

    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?

    Between 200-300 at most for a cloth bag and up to 800 at most for a leather bag

    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?

    I usually want the styling and colors to be similar to what I try to achieve with my outfit, but I don't put too much interest into it.

    *Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you?

    I wouldn't say so. My style variates incredibly depending on the occasion, so a bag that would be almost the same for many situations would be impractical for me.

    *Are there any other comments you’d like to make about handbags?

    Good luck on your project! Sounds like an interesting course

  12. Handbag survey


    *Age: 38


    *What items do you carry in your handbag on a day to day basis? Eg-mobile phone, purse etc

    Wallet, Cell Phone, Cosmetics Case, Pen, Car registration, etc..

    *If you were going out for the night and were only taking a small bag or clutch, what things would you take with you? Eg money, mobile phone etc

    Wallet, cell phone, lipstick, concealor.

    *When out shopping for a new handbag what do you look for?

    Lately ... brand, and otherwise design, quality of materials, colour

    *Is there anything your handbag doesn’t do that you would like it to do? Eg- hold more items etc

    Nope, it holds it all!

    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?

    It's slowly gone up ... used to be $500, then I said I'd never pay $1,000 and now the last couple have been about $1,500. So now I'm saying not over $2,000! However, depending on how much I love something, the label isn't everything, so I would have no hesitation purchasing a less expensive purse over a more expensive one.

    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?

    Usually not. I'm probably very unfashionable that way!

    *Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you?

    That's an interesting idea. One night I had a dream about a purse that had removable outer panels, so you could switch them out when you felt like it to make the purse different. I thought that was a great idea in my dream!

    *Are there any other comments you’d like to make about handbags?

    I don't think so. :smile:

    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?
    $500 up to $1400.00

    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?
    No,no,no, the handbag is a whole separate issue from my outfit.

    Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you? only changing the handles to be handheld or shoulder carried.

    Are there any other comments you'd like to make about handbags? Probably just that it is amazing to me how much emotion can be felt with an accessory- isn't it odd?





     
  14. *Age 22
    *What items do you carry in your handbag on a day to day basis? Eg-mobile phone, purse etc
    wallet, mobile phone, agenda, make-up bag, lip gloss bag, comb, small mirror, sometimes a bottle of water
    *If you were going out for the night and were only taking a small bag or clutch, what things would you take with you? Eg money, mobile phone etc
    driver's license, credit card, money, phone, 1 lip gloss

    *When out shopping for a new handbag what do you look for?
    mainly, do i love the way it looks? also, is it practical enough to use a lot and will it hold everything i normally carry?

    *Is there anything your handbag doesn’t do that you would like it to do? Eg- hold more items etc
    Right now I am carrying LV Speedies the most, and I am kind of wishing for a shoulder bag. But it's nice to have them as hand held bags sometimes, so no, I guess I don't wish they were shoulder bags.
    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?
    $2000 is about my limit right now.

    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?
    not necessarily "match" but it has to "go"

    *Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you?
    probably... like a clutch w/removable strap that could be used as a shoulder bag or wristlet.

    I love them!!!!!!!
     
  15. Handbag survey
    *Age 29
    *What items do you carry in your handbag on a day to day basis? Eg-mobile phone, purse etc
    Wallet, sunglasses, cell phone, keys, lip balm, small notepad, pouch for store rewards cards/gift cards/coupons, eyeglasses, small stick of solid perfume, key card for the office, hair ties, gum or mints

    *If you were going out for the night and were only taking a small bag or clutch, what things would you take with you? Eg money, mobile phone etc
    Money, cell phone, 1 credit card, ID, house key, lip gloss, car key (if I'm driving)

    *When out shopping for a new handbag what do you look for?
    A unique design, quality details such as good seaming, nice leather, etc., usually I already have a style or color in mind before I go looking, though.

    *Is there anything your handbag doesn’t do that you would like it to do? Eg- hold more items etc
    Pay for its own keep and parallel park.

    *How much are you willing to spend on a handbag?
    I've never spent more than $400, but I'd certainly consider spending more if I found a bag I had to have.

    *Do you usually try to match your handbag with your outfit?
    I'll wear black with black or brown with brown, but for other colors, I try NOT to match. A (strategically) clashing bag will make it stand out more against your outfit.

    *Would a handbag which could change to suit the situation appeal to you?
    Sure, less need to switch out bags then! I love bags that have more than one strap or fold up to change their look.

    *Are there any other comments you’d like to make about handbags?
    My name is Mockinglee and I am a handbag addict.
