Hi, I've been lurking around the forums for the past few days trying to learn more about, well, handbags in general XD I'm a total newbie and, looking at my closet, realize I do have a $20 bag I bought without realizing it was a fake O.O it fell apart quite quickly (cracked leather and unraveling seams) anyways, I now realize that the more expensive handbags can be totally worth it as far as durability comes hehe so I am looking for some recommendations. I want to start small for sure. What I'm looking for is something that's got that designer quality and feel without the big name that makes it uber expensive. I'm actually rather enamored by the idea of having something that's high quality but few people recognize the designer... so definitely not going for LV or Chanel here hehe XD people keep mentioning coach or dooney&bourke for good 'starter' bags and I was wondering if I could get some more names of lesser known/newer designers in that sorta price range (or lower, if that happens XD) thanks to everyone in advance ^_^ !!
