    Default Have you found your perfect black bag?

    If so, which bag is it. If not, please share your perfect-black-bag-hunting-experience with me

    As for me, Im not sure if Ive found the perfect black bag. I do have quite a few black bags/clutches but I am unsure if I would be able to use any one of them in every type of situation....because thats kind of what Iregard a perfect black to be; one that you can take anywhere, anytime, regardless of the time or situation, and look perfectly and appropriately polished and put together.

    Here are my black bags. What do you ladies think? Anything coming close to a perfect black bag or nah, not even close?
    Also, what is your definition of a black bag, and if you could have anye one, which would it be?

    TIA!



    Left to right: Coach Ergo, Botkier Bianca, Botkier Bella

    My issues on why they might not be the perfect black bag: Can a Hobo (Coach) ever really be a perfect black bag, since its basically a Hobo (read: casual). The Bianca is gorgeous but it has "boobs." The Bella is small, very small and is more a clutch than a bag. What do you think?



    Left to Right: RM MA Clutch, MBMJ Turnlock Teri, Cole Haan Paige
    Why they might not be the PBB (perfect black bag): THe MA clutch has a very blingy silver chain, and obviously is a clutch, not a bonafide bag. The Turnlock Teri IMO has a casual feel, and the Cole Haan is a huge workhorse bag.




    Left to Right: MBMJ Clutch, MJ Blake, MBMJ Bowler:
    Issues: The clutch cannot hold as much as a regular bag can and the Bowler is very casual IMO. I like the Blake a lot but am unsure if it is the perfect BB (Too formal?). What do you think?




    Black MAM which might be the perfect black bag but the zipper makes me think twice...



    RM Black Basketweave MAM. I would say this might be the perfect black bag for me but its the flashy, blingy logo hardware on the side that makes me think twice. Your thoughts?


    MBMJ Faridah in Night Blue. Can sometimes pass for black. More a casual bag I think.


    RM MAM in Dark Gray. Almost black with silver hardware. Maybe this is the one?



    Chanel Cerf (Which I do not own!) A possible contender for a perfect black bag??


    GAH! So what do you ladies think? Anything close to being the perfect black bag here or should I keep looking (read: buy something else, lol)?

    This is such a great thread Gung! You have such a great selection of black bags.

    My ideal Big LBB would be the Chanel Cerf!!! OMG, I have been waiting for one to pop up on ebay, forever. (from a highly rated, preferably mypoupette seller)

    That bag is just perfect for me. I love the boxy structured shape because it's easier to sift through and find what your looking for, compared to a squishy-slouchy bag. Also I just love the look of that bag.. it's classic. Minimal harware, you can wear it with anything.

    Vote #2 is for the MAM in Dark Gray

    If looking to go Minimal, definitely the Rebecca Minkoff clutch

    For you GUNG, out of your current collection, I'd go with the MAC. It's such a cute bag, and perfect for nights out. For a bigger bag I love your MAM in dark gray, even though it's not black.

    Nothing beats that Chanel though



    My perfect black bag would be either:

    Black Epi Alma


    Black Epi Speedy 30



    I love how structured the Epi leather is, and definitely how structured the Alma is.

    I love the chanel!! it's really elegant~
    and Alex, the black epi definitely is a big YES. I love epi too, but may be white color... somehow i just realized that i'm not into black color bag as much as white.. LOL

    I have a black MC speedy, that's the first and the only black bag (does it count?) i have

    I have a handful of black bags, but the ones that are my fave at the moment are the black nikki hobo and night/gold matinee from RM.

    Thank you for your advice. I like the two you suggested; the dark gray is pretty versatile and the MAC works for almost any occasion.

    I think this one is the closest I can get to achieving PBB status, in terms of money. I cannot afford a Chanel right now and Im pretty sure my PBB would be a Chanel or Prada. Prada of course, is right up there with Chanel in terms of price. So for right now, MJ is about as good as Im going to get. Not that Im complaining or anything! Its a beautiful bag.

    GUNG - I think out of the bags you posted above, I'd choose the MbyMJ teri. I have one in midnight and I couldn't live without it! It is my fave bag!


    As for me, I have a black Treesje asher on the way that will hopefully be MY perfect black bag.
