In honor of National Handbag Day on 10/10, I decided a purse related tag couldn’t be more fitting. I’ll be the first to say I have an addiction to bags. Yes it’s an expensive addiction, but it’s nice to know that not only are my addictions functional and beautiful (or so I think), they also retain their values over time. Anyways, on to the tag!
What is your favorite style purse?
I love satchels and top-handles – 80% of my bags fall under this category. Though they’re probably the most incovenient style, I love the look of carrying the bag on the hook of my arm.
Do you call it a purse, bag, or handbag?
Bag or purse, but never handbag.
What is your least favorite purse trend?
Mini bags. I think they’re adorable, but seriously what can you fit in there? Totally impracticle.
What is your most expensive bag?
Asides for a couple Louis Vuittons, I buy most of my bags pre-loved and generally pay around the same range for them. Retail value wise my Chanel Small Classic Flap tops the list at a whopping $4900. No I didn’t pay anywhere near that for mine, thank God.
What is your most used bag?
What is your least used bag?
Either my Prada Ombre Satchel or my LV Alma BB. Both are lovely bags but the Prada is just too heavy with all the hardware, and the Alma is really small and doesn’t fit much.
What are your most wanted purses right now or what is on your wishlist?
How many bags/purses do you own?
Umm, I lost track after 20. But there are only about 10 I regularly use, the rest I’m actually in the process of selling on eBay.
What is your favorite special occasion purse?
A tie between my Chanel Small Classic Flap and my LV Alma BB. The Chanel tends to win most of the time because black is a much more versatile color.
Where is your favorite place to buy handbags?
Purses you regret purchasing?
I bought way too many Coach bags during my college years that are now just sitting in my closet waiting to be sold. There was also a Marc Jacobs Stam I bought in the heat of the moment, but luckily I was able to resell it for a small profit.
Silk scarves! They add color to the bags and just give it such an elegant look! I love that it can also double as an accessory for yourself ;) I like buying my scarves from Aliexpress – the prices are super affordable and they come in all sorts of lovely designs!
What do you always carry in your bag with you?
I already shared this in my latest what’s in my bag post, but definitely my phone, wallet, lipstick, and then whatever else I can fit in my bag :)
Now I’d like to tag all of you to answer these 14 questions! You don’t have to be a purse-aholic to participate, as I know every girl – no matter her age – has at least a couple bags in her closet. If you do post this on your blog, let me know as I’d love to read your answers!
