You ladies are making me feel a lot better, as I read your numbers in the thousands!!! The most I ever spent on one bag was $875 on my Louis Vuitton blue Epi Petit Noe. I just don't think I will ever break the $1000 mark. I have recently started going way way down, having become disenchanted with expensive handbags. I am into Hogan on sale, and private collection Furla. And guess what? I actually don't want a whole lot more bags. I am quite happy with what I've got! I collected very conscientiously: one Gucci messenger, LV Speedy 30, LV Petit Noe Epi in blue, Tods Black Moccasino, Gerard Darel 24-Heures in Black, Celine Boogie in Monogram Denim, Fendi Shopper in black monogram fabric, Burberry Tote in the Novacheck. Just picked up a Hogan Hobo in Camel, and a Gryson Hobo in Black.
