    Grin How do you choose what bag you carry?

    Ok. I know a lot of us have several beautiful bags. If you are anything like me, you are conflicted every day what to carry. I am currently carrying my Coach Ergo Signature hobo in Khaki/saddle. It is my newest addition and I can carry SO MUCH STUFF in it. Also, I like the patent leather handle ... It adds a lot of pizazz. Also, I have gotten more compliments on that bag than any of my others.

    I also own a LV that cost 10x what my ergo cost and sometimes feel bad that I dont carry it every day (but I dont think Marilyn is an everyday purse) then, I want a Damier Azur 30 and the Montorgueil PM ...

    And then I have my Carly, coach demi pouch, and patchwork pouch and Chelsea braided flap hobo..

    How do you choose what you carry and how do you justify buying a new bag when you have half a dozen bags that look brand new?

    When I choose what bag I wanna wear...I think of:
    1. What I'm wearing and if it will go ok with my outfit.
    2. WHERE I am going - if I am going somewhere where I don't need to carry that much, I'll take something smaller.


    I am always wanting a new bag. When I get one...I'm good for about 2 months lol. I don't wanna get sick of the bags I already have. Plus, you always need another bag!! If there's a bag I like...I'll want it...then I'll eventually get it.

    it really depends on my mood, and actually, not so much what i wear. i have brown bags anyways, so they pretty much match with anything i wear.

    lately, i've been carrying my fendi bag because it's so comfortable, fits what i need, and matches with anything. i use my LV LH when i need to carry more of if i'm in the mood for LV, but want a shoulder bag.
    Wishlist: * LV Vernis Alma PM or Brea MM * LV Mono Speedy 35 * Medium YSL Y-Mail Tote *

    Same as JessLR:
    - what I'm wearing
    - where I'm going

    how to justify buying a new bag? i do feel guilty about it. that's why i've recently sold six of my handbags and i've got one on consignment. i figured i might as well streamline my collection to bags that I'm definitely going to carry at some point.

    I always carry my newest bag for a long time. I tend to coordinate an outfit around it so that I can carry it :)

    Ive been wearing my slate F+C city so I make sure what I'm wearng goes with blue. I feel guilty when I dont wear my chanels or cerises speedy bc they were really expensive, but sometimes they just dont go with the outfit.

    I also tend to base what bag I wear on where I'm going. I usually only carry my wallet, phone, and keys, but if I'm bringing a water with me I make sure it fits in my bag.

    I never feel guilty buying bags

    I accessorize with my outfit and what we are doing. I try to switch them out daily so I don't feel guilty for having them. That being said, I do tend to lean more towards whichever bag I bought last.
    Thinking of...
    Chanel Black Jumbo
    LV Artsy MM
    Holy Grail: Chanel 06 Bleu Fonce Jumbo

    Same here! Lately I've been using my Marc Jacobs Quilted Colorblock Hobo so I've been wearing a lot of brown, green, violet, and teal to be able to coordinate.

    I tend to wear new bags for a while, but ill be switching to some more summery bags soon, I need to sell some off in hopes of getting the Chloe bag I really want!

    It depends on

    a.) Where I'm Going

    b.) What I feel like Carrying
