Your non-Designer purses?

  1. I dont know about all of you, but before I became infatuated with high end purses, I started and have a hefty collection of random purses that I have collected. I think I have over 20 purses that are from totally random places and all under 40 dollars I believe. Does anyone else have a collection of "non-designer" bags?
     
  2. I do. I have 3 metallic leathery soft bags that can be worn across from the body or can be converted into a night clutchy bag. I have a set of those metallic pailette bags (I've never used them so bag to eBay they go probably), some designer inspired Mulberry bags (I didn't know what Mulberry bags look like and only one of the 4 looked cute to me), some Epxress night/formal clutches, some beaded bags from India and some other odds and ends.
     
  3. Yes ma'am. About 5, originating from completely random places and I still love them just as much as the next 'designer' bag.
     
  4. Indeedy.. but only around 10 or so. My favourite is one from Gap, it kind of resembles the baggy PM actually !
     
  5. i have a couple but really only use one non-designer bag. it's this big canvas tote that says "crew" in pink and has green straps. it's really cute and surprisingly durable!
     
  6. I gave them all away, to friend's mothers, a niece (she gets first choice).
     
  7. i have 2 non designer bags - one is from a designer in new zealand... i guess she's pretty famous over here and one other bag my mum got me...
     
  8. I have a pewter Lolli by Reincarnation, a brown sueded studded cross hobo from G Series, and this bag made out of different pieces of kimono fabric handmade by a Japanese designer.
     
  9. I have one Guess bag that I love. It's a great summer bag.
     
  10. oh yes. probably around 20. but my favorite is the infamous "rooster bag".

    always a crowd pleaser.
     
  11. Wow, that Kimono bag sounds amazing!

    I guess I just figured everyone would have a lot of non designer bags too? I guess I am really addicted. I need to keep the designer bags in check because I certainly cant afford 20 of them.

    I cant find it in me to part with them...
     
  12. My 'non-designer/non-high end' collection includes the following:
    * A brown leather studded hobo shoulder bag I bought for $5(!!) at some random store.
    * A white w/ pink trim XOXO satchel bag that I use to hold all my 'toiletries' when I go on trips.
    * A huge blue XOXO jelly bag that I use as a beach bag because it's plastic so I don't have to worry about it getting wet hehe.

    I donated all my non-designer bags except for the above because I wanted to 'restart' my collection with more grown up, leather (preferably), classic bags that will last for years.
     
  13. I'd love to see pics of this Ayla. I can't justify the PM price, so maybe I can pick one of these up on eBay if it lives up to expectations. :biggrin:
     
  14. Of coz.
    I started from any different and it range from $5 - $200 for no-name
    I had over 45 but mostly are $5 purses and I still carry them.
     
  15. My favorite non-designer purse brand is Bebe. Lately, they have been making such nice pieces and with real leather too!! Nothing drives me more crazy than pleather.
