Hello!
I've so enjoyed seeing everyone's collections on here that I thought I'd add my own! As you will see, I primarily have LV handbags. I thought about branching out, but for now, I'll stick with what I like most. Below is the family photo, and I'll do a separate post for each bag so I can tell their stories one at a time. Thanks for looking!

Here is my first luxury handbag, the Tivoli pm. I got her about 5 years ago. She was my reward for working very hard at my job and finishing school at the same time. I adore this bag and still get excited when I use her! 20170105_114129.jpg

So, I loved the Tivoli so much that the next year I decided to get another LV! I went with the Siracusa PM. I bought this with money I made from a side job which made my husband happy since I didn't dip into my salary! This is still my go-to summer bag!

After getting two LVs, I decided I should try another designer, so I purchased this Chanel PST. I think it is adorable, but I don't use it very much, so I may sell it! The size just isn't right for me, and it is awkward to find stuff in.

My next purchase was a Sully MM. I was between this and the Artsy, but the Sully won out. I haven't used it too much but am starting to use it more. I purchased it after inheriting a little money. I put the vast majority into savings, but I treated myself to this bag, too! 20170105_114346.jpg

Early in 2015 I purchased my first and only SLG, the mini pochette. I have the Trunks and Bags Design. I got it on Ebay for a really good price. It was my first "pre loved" piece, and I use it every day! 20170105_114706.jpg

In 2016 I purchased the Bloomsbury GM. I was pregnant and wanted a hands-free bag for when baby got here. It's rather large and I'm rather petite, but it fits diapers! It's also a great winter bag. A part of me wishes I got the pm, but I'm keeping it. Moms carry lots of stuff... 20170105_114747.jpg

And last...in 2016 I also purchased this pre-loved bag- the Batignolles Vertical. I'd like to think I got it at a good price, and it's currently my work-horse bag. I don't worry if it rains or snows when I have it out since it already has it's patina. Don't know when I'll get my next bag, but I'm looking at a few! 20170105_114614.jpg

Hey fellow Jersey Girl :smile: Your collection is lovely. I especially liked that you included the background story for each. Our bags are special to us for many reasons, one of them being the way in which we acquired them! I love the Chanel bag and the color -- it's annoying when we love a bag and it turns being less practical that we need!
