My First Designer Handbag


Confession: I've never owned a designer handbag before. All of them have been under $50 or so. Mostly from H&M and Aldo. I've been too scared to lose it or damage something expensive. But now that I'm getting older, I need to not be so shy and focus on investments.

Recently, I won Midtown Girl's Fabulush "Date Night Essentials" giveaway that featured Rebecca Minkoff's "Morning After Clutch." I had to have it so I was so ecstatic I won! It fits my personality, edgy but classic. It looks small but fits all my necessities. Isn't she pretty?

It's new home

It's all in the details


What was the first designer item you owned?

  2. I agree with buying a designer bag. I don't believe in spending money on a purse if I'm not going to use it everyday. Congratulation on your win!

  3. ooooh :) I love it! And you're so right, it's the details that make a rebecca minkoff bag so covetable!

    My first designer item was a teal, suede, marc jacobs bag that I bought at a consignment store in dallas. The only items I can justify spending the money on are bags and coats. A well made bag only looks better with age (look at the Chanel 2.55!), and living in Canada I need all the warm well made coats I can get!

  4. It's gorgeous! I'm also afraid of ruining my bags lol, my first designer bag was Dooney & Bourke & it definitely is a lot more durable than my other ones (it's still in pretty good shape for something that's about 8yrs old lol).

  10. Congratulations! My first designer bag was a Kate Spade. It was 1998 I believe. I have since added a few more designers and a few more Kate Spade's, as pocketbooks are my 'thing'.

  15. The rolex datejust watches materials used will be the finest quality, with leather generally from Italy or France. gifts for girls will never be any dark spots, blemishes, or parts of the omega watches for sale leather that seem discolored or in some way shaded differently than the other parts of the louis vuitton outlet online . The leather should be extremely soft and pliable, yet it will also hold up hermes handbags online and stay in its originally strong condition for years to come. One other chanel bag online consideration is the metals that are used. Even if the cheap prada handbags handle is not metal, chances are there will be metal clasps at the very least on your mens jackets.If you go with a designer handbag, you can make certain replica catier jewellery online these are also of the finest quality.
