    I've always loved handbags, and had accumulated a bunch of cheap, not very well made handbags when I got to college. I'd always admired the nice designer handbags, but I thought they were really out of my price range...then I realized I'd rather have a few very nice designer bags (that I could always resell if I needed money/wanted different bags) rather than a ton of cheap bags that weren't really worth anything.

    Many bags and dollars later...here I am! lol

    I've carried a purse since I was 11 or 12, but I lived in the middle of nowhere and had only what I could get at KMart for years. In college I lived in a place with a real mall, and bought several bags a year at department stores. Then I realized that there were bags like Coach and D&B that were behind glass counters and "expensive."

    It really wasn't until last April when my family gave me money for my first Coach for my birthday that I realized how much there is to the world of handbags. I wanted to make sure I was getting what I really wanted, and started researching on the internet. And that's how I stumbled onto TBF. And I'm not looking back.

    Used to buy cheap bags bec. I keep replacing it but when I computed how much I spent for all those bags in a year, the amount I spent was like buying a designer bag already. I had so much space problems in my cabinet with all those bags, until I started using LV. I only have very few items but I'm happier now using fewer but nice designer bags.

    I never ever carried purses until after my children were born then I needed to start toting things.
    I would only buy one cheap crappy bag, carry it until it was destroyed then get upset because of the challenge of trying to find another bag for under $20.
    Then, I went into LV about 6 years ago, by accident, took one really good look around, the SA saw a novice in her midst, educated me and I walked out with the Manhattan PM. That was either the beginning , or the end, according to how you look at it.

    My grandparents gave me my first purse when I was about 9 or 10. It was a little drawstring purse made out of denim. After that, I began to buy more and more purses.

    My freshman year of HS I became aware of Coach purses. I thought that anyone who spent more than $30 on a purse was insane until I went to Macy's and saw the Coach purses for myself. Summer after my junior year I bought myself two Coach purses. Ever since then, I have been hooked on designer bags. I still buy non-designer bags too.

    The person who got me into designer bags was my cousin. She kept telling me to buy a Gucci and so I did. From that first purchase, started my LOVE for designer handbags. I first fell in love with Gucci then my love grew more for LV. She also commented that I beat her out when I bought a Balenciaga before her. She created me into the collector that I am today.

    I always loved carrying little purses when I was little, and when I was a teenager I started "collecting" bags, and finally I saw the Dior Girly collection, which made me start lusting after designer goods, hahaha. Now I love them for the quality and how gorgeous they are!

    People around me just didn't care about fashion at all so I only seriously got into the whole scene with bags after I finished med school .
    I hired a wedding planner for my wedding who basically said 'If only you would pay as much attention to your appearance as with your brains...' It was brutally honest but really the kick up the behind that I needed.
    Fast forward a decade later, Pandora's out of the box and she ain't going back!!
