    Default Do you buy unbranded bags?

    I saw that almost everyone and every post here are talking about brand bags, i should admit that Herme, LV, Gucci bags are really chic, but personally i would not spend so much money on a bag, so i usually buy unbranded bags and purses. I'm into the ethnic look. No matter it is still in vogue or not.

    Nope, I only buy brand name bags. This my reasoning:

    I invest in my bags. I spend a lot on them because I know they're quality and are going to last. I feel like spending money on a bag that isn't designer is a waste. The bags I have will keep their value mostly, and spending money on a bag that isn't recognized is just throwing money down the drain.

    Personally, I don't buy unbranded bags anymore because I haven't had good luck with quality. If you like your unbranded bags, then that is perfectly fine. What works for one person may not work for another. As long as you're happy with your bags then that is all that matters.

    Well, I like bags that are nice quality and that will last. I have a MbyMJ teri that I've had for around 3 years...and it's still nice!! But, I have found a bag from ASOS that is by Warehouse that I might get. I like the vintage-y feel to it. To me, it's not all about the name...but the quality and design.



    So, if the bag isn't a "brand name", it doesn't mean that it isn't worth buying, KWIM?

    I buy name brand and unbranded handbags. As long as i like it and the quality is good, i don't mind getting it.

    I don't really look at bags as an investment. Very few brands retain their value (Chanel, Bal and maybe a few others). For most of the others, once the bag is used even one time, the sale is price is almost half...so it is not something to count on for a return on your money. For that i would invest in gold.
    Name brand bags more often than not have better quality workmanship and look classy. At the same time you don't feel bad about donating an unbranded handbag after a few years, since you did not pour money into it

    that is just my take on it.

    If I see an eye-catching non-branded bag, I'll give into it, but as of now, all of my handbags are name branded. I do have some lower name branded bags in my closet though, such as BCGB and Carlos Santana bags.

    Default Re: Do you buy unbranded bags?

    I play on both sides of the fence when it comes to buying branded and unbranded bags.....But to tell you the truth I enjoy indie and handmade bags more. I recently sold all my Chanels because I was so paranoid when wearing them. I have only purchased three to date and I only wore them once or not at all. I live in a big city and sometimes take public transport. I have ruined two expensive pants due to hanging nails on seats. I also have to worry about the occasional coffee spiller or stuck gum. I just won’t run the risk of ruining my “investment” like this. Thinking about it now I am more carefree carrying unbranded bags, especially when they are unique and were a great deal. I dont like feeling like Frodo Baggins when carrying a designer bag.

    When I was younger I carried Coach, Le Sportsac and tons of unbranded bags. Now, I'm just addicted to LV. I have one Gucci and a few Chanel but I love LV. I can't help it. I don't even look at the bags in the mall anymore. I used to stalk the bags at Macy's but now I don't even bother. I end up going to consignment stores to scope out some LV's!
    Currently on a self-imposed bag ban.

    I have several "branded" bags from Louis Vuitton to Balenciaga, but one of my favorite bags to carry is the Abby Road by Lucky. I don't feel that is is a "branded" bag but it is super smooshy and comfy!! If I like it I will buy it!

    also, larger brands have better customer service when it comes to damages. lv, chanel, and gucci have amazing customer service when it comes to repairs. they make your bag look like new again!

    I feel for you OP, for the unbranded bags. I don't have too much money to go around so I do buy unbranded bags when I need them. I prefer to call myself more a voyeur of designer bags, although I'm willing to put some investment into one since I've fallen in love with so many. Once I start working full time I'll definitely invest in plenty of designer bags and donate the ones I use now to a charity. They all work quite fine, I've had some for years with no real issues. But putting money into owning something of high quality and beauty is something I can't fault anyone for doing.

    Yeah I do actually, but its also because I am a student so in general I cannot afford as many bags as people who are working. I have a couple of designer brands but also middle range bags and unbranded bags from vintage markets.

    I am on a tight budget, so I've gotten wonderful bags at thrift shops. I have a couple of leather Tignanellos with sturdy enough leather that held up to being put in the delicate cycle of the washing machine. They went from sad to very pretty!! I have a few Fossils that are nice, as well as tons of SAK bags (also hold up well in the wash !) I love Coach, especially the vintage ones.

    Definitely! As much as I love branded bags, I can't help but see really good and beautiful bags which are not that of well-known designers. In fact, most of these non-branded bags are even of great quality. I know of some bags which are made from indigenous materials and are sold at affordable prices. I don't limit myself to designer-labeled bags, as long as it catches my eye and the quality is great, I'm up for it! :)
