Default purse poll

Knowing how much a high end handbag can cost I felt like doing a purse poll. Ladies which is your favorite purse?

I voted for A but D is a close second for me. I have to have a purse that I can put on my shoulder, plus I fell that A would really look good with a lot of different outfits.

My choice is C. It is a classic style and you can pull of dressing up a pair of jeans to wear out.

That was fun! I voted for D, but I liked A, too. How muc were each of these bags worth? To me, handbags are worth good money. I carry them a long time and they have a hard life.

I didn't like any of them, but if I had to pick, I thought the cheap one was the least offensive!!

I also do not like any of them and also like the cheap one if I really had to pick one, but would not use it often.

Looks like we all have different tastes. To me, a nice plain black bag is for old ladies. I gotta have something to carry all my stuff. I'd rather that it looks really stylish.

In that case, "D" is the choice.

Be careful my friend. I had rocks chunked at me in another posting because I made a posting here in the "girly" only section.

I really thought that they were all ugly. I prefer a shoulder strap. I have one Coach purse that I got at a Coach outlet in NH. The only one I could afford that day is so tiny it barely fits my wallet and cell phone and little else. The rest of my bags come from Sears!!

I like A and voted for that one based on the parameters you set. I do like B, but not as an every day bag. C and D do absolutely nothing for me.

Well, I still like B but not for that price!!! so I guess I'll settle for the Target bag - actually anything that holds what I need is what I'll carry - but I do not spend a lot on my bags, most of them come from K-mart, or I might pick up one at a garage sale or thrift store - I carry my purses forever!!!

Oh I like I can't afford it $425 but I like it.
I like the Brighton bags I accidently bought a brighton bag knockoff. Very few people know because this brand is not well know. This bag will set you back $265.00.


Mine knock off looks similar to the one below only it's brown and has a shoulder strap also and it fans out on the sides. The one below costs $190. I got mine in mexico in leather for $30.
