I think listing them makes us reflect on how much we've spent and what we do and do not 'need'. At the moment I'm not lusting after any particular bag!

I bought the Prada Fringe form Matches on Wednesday and my three daughters have fallening in love with her. One of them says "Mum don't bother about leaving me your jewellery when you pop your clogs - just leave me your bags!!!

I ordered the Prada on-line and spoke to the assistant and when l got home from work l said to my DH and girls you'll never guess what l bought today.
One said a hoover, another said an ironing system and finally they got to a bag. I'm well known by my family, friends and colleagues for buying vacuum cleaners so if anyone wants an opinion there are not many that l haven't bought. Now substituting these for bags they take up less room.

All of 'em....yup - the bag addiction started in March and I've made up for lost time and this Forum sure did/didn't help in guiding the floodwaters (aka "bags") as they came rushing through my front door!!!
Let's see if I can remember:

Botkier - Bombay Satchel in Twilight
Barney's Private Label - Tano Crossbody in Olive/Brown
Hayden Harnett - Ana in Chocolate
Etro - Sailors Knot Hobo in Winter White
Bulga - Crescent Ruched Satchel - in Gold
Hayden Harnett - Dominique Satchel in Cream
Isabella Fiore - Woven Glory Hobo in Black
Jimmy Choo - Talia in Camel
Be&D - Ingrid Satchel - in Red
Be&D - Garbo Satchel - in Floral Flocking
Ananas - Nicky Hobo - in Citrus
Gryson - Nylon Skye in Grey
Thickskin - Bucket in Jungle
MULBERRY - Bayswater in Purple Leather

NOW, Don't you think that's enough? How many bags can one girl carry at a time and I DON'T EVEN WORK...have diapers or wet-naps to carry!!!! What is wrong with me????
OOPS - asking the wrong crowd.

BUT.....I must admit, getting my Bayswater has finally satisfied my cravings....I no longer lust after bags.....though it has only been a month since I've brought her home. After you get a Mulberry, you've become spoiled and quite satisfied. There's nothing like going "out" with a BANG cuz I really do need to be on a bag ban....but I'm not really thinking of it as a ban......I just don't feel the need/desire anymore! Wow, and to think that it was a Mulberry that finally put me over the top! :yahoo::P:yahoo:

OMG - I am such a lightweight!!! I have only bought 3 bags..
LV Mono Alma
Isabella Fiore Brooke satchel
Mulberry Bayswater - black (my 1 true love!!)
But, sadly, I have spent more than those bags on La Mer and ReVive products.
I will be on the hunt for another Mulberry in oak or chocolate next year and maybe a purse/wallet too!!

dcblam- crikey, that's hell of a alot since March!! Glad you are satisfied having got your bayswater!!!

Tara- what did you not like about the somerset hobo? - I'm a bit iffy about the canvas strap.

I'm feeling really restrained having seen what others have bought!!!

flyvetjo -
you should feel fabulous about your restraint!!!! They say that hindsight is 20/20 and if I had to do it all over again, I would pass on some of the bags that I have - NOT because I do not like them (I do)....but I really do have enough. The saving grace is that ALL, except for the Bayswater, were bought on sale and some of them at crazy/wunnerful sample sale prices for pristine bags (ex. Be&D, Garbo for $225 and I think they sold for close to $1,000). OH, the mind games we play!

Wow, after reading this and another similar thread under Handbags, I realized that I really am a lightweight. I don't own that many bags at all. I think that I am so careful about what I buy, in other words I am rather tight! Also, I am very lazy and don't enjoy changing bags every day. I am so happy and can't wait to use my Bayswater and look forward to carrying her for years. That said, I only have 1 bag in a color(pink) that I use in the summer. I do need to branch out a little, so I will most likely look for a red or olive Mulberry next year. I would also love to have something in oak, then I believe that I will be perfectly content in my laziness!!

Would really love to see dcblam's purple bayswater and sarajanes' red mabel irl for some inspiration!!!
