    Default Old Purse Lover, Newish to TBF

    Growing up I collected handbags. My first handbag was a green PVC easter bag with silk flowers on top. It was so adorable and I still have it. I was 7. My second most memorable purse as a child was a hand tooled leather bag with pheasant feathers in a small opening in the leather. I believe my mother still has that one at home. From there it grew to inexpensive bags, antique bakelite and lucite handbags, Victorian beaded bags, art deco metallic bags. In fact, my mother and I's vintage collection is well over 100 bags.

    Today, I covet finer more contemporary handbags. My favorite go to bag is a JP Tod's camel media bag with pockets on each end. I love it for travelling. I purchased my first Bottega last year and adore it. This season I bought a silver/black Ferragamo that is so soft and cushy and gets tons of compliments. I also bought a red patent envelope clutch from SCOOPNYC that I had coveted for a year and was lucky enough to get at 75% off!

    I live in a small city in the midwest so there are not alot of great bag stores and I do most of my lusting online.

    I am the past chair in an event called Couture for Cancer and am responsible for getting donations from designers like Burberry, Katherine Kwei, Hayden Harnett, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and many many others. It is a wonderful, fun, women's only event that focuses on designer accessories and clothing. I organize the runway show each year as well!

    Some of my favorite bags right now are the Katherine Kwei Donna Clutch with little swarovski crystals on it, the Tod's Pashmy in soft gold, and anything Nancy Gonzalez. I fell in love with her pieces 3 years ago when they only seemed expensive and now they are! I kick myself for not getting one then!

    I have two children, age 8 and 11. My daughter is definitely on the path to loving great fashion.

    I am a fashion consultant and represent a line out of NY with four trunk shows each years and absolutely LOVE helping women look great and find great pieces for their wardrobe.

    I despise fake bags....it just ruins the brand for me.

    I think the Target designer bags are great for women who can't afford designer prices but want great style.

    I will post pics of my bags soon. My camera isn't working great right now.

    also I've been on ebay for 10 years. I use it to buy items I love at a discount and sell designer items that I no longer need/want for myself and my daughter. I too feel the same pains about ebay and wish there were an alternative. So if you have any ebay questions, feel free to ask.
