Default Bag Ladies Unite!

Are you, like me, a handbag fanatic? do you drool over the newest and cutest? Do you pack many,or hold yourself back from taking all your faves?

Are you a knockoff queen, or only the real deal kind? Is there an island you find you get great deal? Want to share?

I found that the Flea in St Thomas is a good place to get a look alike..The day I was there last, I didn't particularly like the bvendor, I felt he tried to switch the price he told me, but I prevailed.

I heard in Nassau there is a street seller somewhere, but in the store I was in that sold them, the prices were insane.

Early on when I cruised I had this patent leather bag, that had an actual working clock on it..it was always the talk, and in Aruba,one time i was stopped by some people to have a group picture taken with it..go figure.

I also have a little silk bag, that looks like a Chinese take out box, cute.

Since I collected buttons, I embellished a little black bag, with vintage buttons and ribbons, that turned out real pretty. Every summer I buy a straw bag, and adorn it with silk flowers, for so much less then what the stores charge, I love it!

So are you a closet bag lady, or no way jose?

I am definitely a bag lady. Just bought a new one today, actually . . . I'm rewarding myself for the root canal I'm having tomorrow.

I'm definitely a bag lady. I buy some designer and some knock off. My lastest is a Burberry knock off that I got in Mexico. One of my favorites is a Vera Bradley with all the little pockets on the inside. It keeps everything organized and I can always find my keys!

Trip:

I have to agree, I don't understand the chicken and egg one either. I've had a couple of different ones but my favorite is the lily of the valley on black with the pink ribbons. Its the one they donate money to breast cancer for. I just love that pattern.

The bags and shoes pretty much go hand and hand don't they?! I like to bring nice bags for evening, got to have the bag to match the right shoe! During the day I don't really use a handbag. At the straw market in Nassau, there were a ton of knock off bags. Very little straw left, but lots of fake bags, wallets, etc. If you are into that you will be in heaven!

Default Bag Lady

I am a bag lady. I love designer purses like Gucci, LV and Kate Spade.
I purchased my LV in Paris when we were there for a better price (tax).
My Gucii is one I am "borrowing" from www.bagborroworsteal.com.
This web site is wonderful! You borrow for a few months, and have the option to buy. They are genuine bags.
