    at what age did u own ur first designer handbag? I was 16

    was it a gift or did u get it urself? I got it for myself

    Don't throw stones at me but it was a Coach messenger bag. I have since then moved on.

    how many designer bags do u own till date? A couple, now I only buy Louis Vuitton until next year where I will focus my energy and my piggy bank on a Birkin.....lol

    My mom bought me my first designer bag (Juicy) when I was 17. This was because I had been eyeing them for awhile, and she offered to split the cost with me. I was so excited, and I still have it (and use it!). Since then, all of my designer bags have been gifts, and my collection is still small. I figure I'll move up to high-end designers like LV when I begin working a "real" job in the corporate world in a year, hahaha.

    When I was 21 I bought my first coach. When I was 23 I bought a LV mini looping which I still have. I now own about 40 handbags. The coach is long gone!

    My first 'designer' bag would have been a Tommy Hilfiger black clutch that I got as a birthday gift when I was 12. I still have it and I still use it! In junior high I got a lot of Nine West and Guess.

    Last year my dad bought me a Coach satchel as a graduation gift, he's bought me a few since then. I'm 18 now and saving up for LV and Chanel now to go with my business attire that I'll be needing after university!

    My first "designer" bag was also a Tommy Hilfiger. I remember I paid like $30 and I thought that was sooo expensive! hahaha

    Before that I didn't really care about what bag I had....my next one was a Dooney&Bourke I picked up at a Goodwill for $45.......

    I'm slowly moving up the bag chain....but too slowly for my taste

    I actually got my first designer wallet (not purse) at 16. It was Dior. I loved that wallet. Had it for year. Later I got into coach in my twenties (do not recall the names and they are so old that I may not be able to find photos) and nowadays is LV. My first LV was the Ellipse.

But its fun hunting for such bags, you will never know when you will hit upon a bag that is great in design with good workmanship and does not cost you half your life. Hoping to be able to get her another coach for her birthday and a LV this Christmas, and whatever I can afford in between. Haha.
    What a great man! =)

    Does hand me down designer bag count? My mom is a big Fan of fendi, Bally and Gucci so sometimes I get to use it in my early 20's and at that time I didn't think of keeping them. I just found out she just donated them to Salvation army. I think 23 was the age I started buying purses more than $200.

    My first designer bag was purchased for me when I was 35!!!

    I had just defended my doc. dissertation, and hubby took me to the Coach outlet on our way home from Vegas where we were celebrating! He said "okay, you're pretty much official now, and you can't be walking around with a backpack and a cheap bag. Now go inside and pick one."

    I was shocked!! He's SO frugal about everything, I finally found a good sized bag (I still have it!), and when I came to show him, he said "now pick another!"

    That's all it took. I think he's right - I've worked long and hard and DESERVE to have nice bags!! Still love Coach bags (prefer their leather ones now). Of course, I've also moved into MJ, Gucci, LAMB, and a few Koobas, SeebyChloe, Burberry and RM's thrown in too!
