in the short period that i've become fascinated with handbags, i've come to some very definite ideas about what i would and would not spend my hard-earned money on, no matter how famous the designer or how good a bargain. here's my list: 1. i won't blow hundreds of dollars on a monogram anything; 2. anything made of canvas; 3. "pretty" on the outside, but ugly lining; 4. appliques! 5. anything with hearts 6. anything made from a reptile (because i like reptiles!) how about you?
