Mine was way back in 7th grade- the little Coach pochette! I wanted a designer bag so bad and begged and pleaded for it. It was only $128 but I remember thinking that was the biggest deal. Ah, if only I still just wanted $128 bags!! ;)

My Parents Money - My first designer bag was a Salvatore Ferragamo Pochette when I was 12 (Back then I didn't know it was valuable. So I used it as a pencil case, crayon, & elmer's glue case for school.) I still have it, it's smothered with glue & ink. It's alittle Fugly now (well not alittle, ALOT). I regret doing that... LOL The next one was when I was 14 it was a black lamb skin leather Chanel belt bag (back when my Mom was still working at Chanel). I was alittle more familiar with designer bags by this time, so I guess this was truely my first designer bag.

My Own Money - My first purchase with MY hard earned money was a Celine Alma in Black Monogram (it was on sale, original price was around $500 then, I got it for just $300!) and the LV Mono Pouchette. This was when I was 18. Sheesh just a year ago!(I'm 19).

Nice! I really liked how you differentiated b/t your money and your parents money! I just replied to something you said in 'What really grinds my gears!' :smile:

I started with Tod's. I was really into the rather structured ones they did a few years back. Now, I think they have 'too many notes' (to quote AMADEUS). I can't remember which Tod's was my first but I know it was one of 'em! At this point, I think I only have a Tod's tote left -- the rest I've sold.

Ah, the resale store....the little bit of retail redemption for a bag addict!

Mine was a black Gucci evening bag. I was 19. The next was a Gucci Drs. bag, in traditional monogram canvas. I still have the Drs. bag and it looks as good as it did when I first bought it! :amazed: My 12 year old has a D&B and Coach, my 9 year old has a D&B. I thing the D&B multi color hearts, etc. are great for the younger set and as intro designer bags. They really fit that playful personality. :biggrin:

My very first bag was the LV pouchette. I was 15 years old working at my first job at the Gap. My mom thought I was crazy to buy a designer bag at my age. 5 years later and I still use the bag all the time. Its funny how we can place such value on something like a bag, but even today, everytime I use it I still get the same feeling of accomplishment that I did when I saved up to buy it. (I also am reminded of how much I truly hate working retail!)
