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?

Unless it's on sale or I get it for a bargain...

1. Nylon (all my kate spades, except for one, I got on sale)
2. An all - fur bag (scared of zipper getting caught and ruining the bag)
3. Rubber
4. I haven't gotten a tweed bag yet and always disliked it but it can change soon
5. Brands I just don't like

I used to think I will never own a suede bag cause it's expensive and hard to take care of. I have two suede bags now. I eat my words.

1. nylon (sorry, miuccia)
2. stiff leather
3. straps that don't stay put
4. all-over studding or other adornment
5. bags with pictures of things (IF tattoo bags, etc)

I'm with you. Also bags that have a lot of "texture" (e.g. the new LV suede bags with the raised/appliqued floral pattern) because they tend to start to look shabby after the first few times someone brushes against them. I also won't spend good money on something that just doesn't fit with my style or needs.

1) nylon over $180
2) fur bags b/c they are tacky
3) denim bags
4) patent leather
5) faux croc/lizard/aligator/eel/snake/etc
6) pony hair
7) rubber
8) leather-like
9) suede

I think that about wraps my list up.

nylon/microfiber bags
fake anything
leatherette (what is that?)
anything that is freying in store or has loose thread
any bag that is over $700 that doesn't make me dream about it. (If it's constantly on my mind, i find a way to afford it)

My thoughts exactly. Although I have to add real snake, lizard, eel skins.

Piquedame my Mono Canvas Collection wuld give you the hives :nuts: !! Anyways I don't drop cash (let say over $300) on:
1. Suede, I love it though, just too high maintenance
2. Really anything trendy, I define trendy pretty narrowily, eg studded bags
3. Nylon as well

I am going to sound like everyone else here:

1 - nylon/canvas/fake leather of any kind
2 - snake
3 - really anything that is too outside of my visual comfort zone; novelty is okay for under $50; but, not more than that. If it has a wearability rating of 2 or less I will not spend more than $50 on it.
