So one day, my best friend asks, "Why don't you ever have money, I feel like you're always working?"

This question prompted me to start a thread, showcasing my bag collection! A few of my bags even have their own little story to them. :)

Keep in mind that my money doesn't JUST go to my bag collection... just the little money I leave from my paychecks as my "spending money."



So to start off... here is the "family portrait" of my bag collection.


(Sorry-- the attachment thing isn't working for some reason?)

And to showcase each bag individually, I'll start with the one I got first.

It was my first ever designer bag, given to me by my mom when I was a junior in high school (age 17).

aaahhh this is where the addiction started!



It's a Dooney & Bourke! What a great way to start a collection!

And then came the first bag I purchased myself, during my senior year in high school. I was really into Coach at that time, and was DYING to get one. I was very happy when I saved enough money for this one.

Then along came my first Louis Vuitton, during the summer of 2009!

It is my Louis Vuitton Neverfull PM.

This was the start of a Louis Vuitton addiction!

That same year, my work gave its employees what I called a little "Christmas Bonus."

With it, I decided to purchase this Burberry Bowler Bag.

I've always loved Burberry!

And then when I heard the news about a Gucci sale, I was THRILLED.

Came home with this small, but lovely bag...

And then when I started going to a university, and my boyfriend wasn't
with my to carry my books (such a gentleman ), I decided I needed a
backpack.

What better way than a Louis Vuitton??
It ended up being too small, but kept it for the purpose that it makes a great "knock around" bag.
Works great on hikes!

Introducting, my Louis Vuitton Montsouris MM!!

The Christmas of 2010, I decided I needed a new Louis Vuitton!
I was actually on the hunt for a Graffiti Neverfull, but ended up with this one instead.

My Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy!!

After that, I decided to calm down until my 21st birthday.

My boyfriend and I went on a road trip to California, just so I can buy it on Rodeo Dr!

Here is my Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Totally PM!

AND after this VERY recent purchase, I am on an official BAN.

But what better way to build up credit than my first Chanel?? :)

I know many are put off by the Cambon bags, but I still have a soft spot for them. :)
What better way to start a Chanel collection than with the bag that drew me into the brand??
