Re: How often do you swap out your handbag?

[ Edited ]

Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day. I use a large D&B black hobo in fall/winter as my every day bag. If traveling, I switch to a lg. LV since it holds everything and I consider it neutral. I pack a crossbody, large TUMI black nylon bag to use while there sightseeing. 

 

Last summer, I yearned (kinda strong word for a bag, but fits) for a lighter colored, but neutral bag. White, off white, etc. seemed not practical for me. Any shade of neutral/natural brown or tan leather didn’t work since none of my clothing/shoes are in that family. I reluctantly chose a large leather D&B hobo in a pale grey w/ tan trim. 

 

Well, I’ve used that grey bag last spring/summer and this spring/summer without changing it out...except for travel or a smaller evening/dinner bag.

Re: How often do you swap out your handbag?

On average once every two weeks or so.  Sometimes, like this past 3 months while traveling in an RV, I only took 2 of my handbags (lightweight nylon bags) and used them only for the 3 months.  In the winter I use my 3 leather bags - two in black and one in olive green - and I change them out maybe every two or three weeks.

I have an everday bag, but I switch it out regularly because I like to coordinate my fashions. WOOHOO to those of us that enjoy swapping out handbags regularly👍

Re: How often do you swap out your handbag?

Rarely. I really don't like carrying a purse. I have camera bags in saddle tan from Radley London and Brahmin black croco embossed leather that I use for everyday, with the Radley London bag being used 85% of the time. I have a navy leather Coach tote that I use then I travel. That's pretty much it.

I've never been inclined to change handbags all that frequently.  Always purchased good quality leather with adequate number of compartments to keep me organized, and carried them for ages.   I prefer black leather most of the time, but also like the sand/oatmeal color for summer.    I also have a few smaller bags for evening which I like to use.   I could never switch bags several times a week.

I have whittled down what I carry in a bag now. So all I use are crossbody bags. I switch them out about ever 2 weeks or so.

No set time. I do it whenever the mood hits... Unless I'm traveling. Then I have the Radley flat crossbody, and I use that.

Quite often! I don’t care a whole lot in them so changing bags isn’t difficult.

Re: How often do you swap out your handbag?

 Ditto on the  wooHoo !

 

. I swap out my handbag every day to coordinate with my outfit . I believe if you take such effort in coordinating an outfit for  work than  take the time   to coordinate  a handbag.  I like to switch out my bags regularly to preserve the leather . If you use the same handbag day after day  for months on end , this can put some wear and tear on the leather.   For work I used a large bag  and literally  carried  everything in it .  For evenings out  ,I keep it a small bag with essentials . Traveling , I use a lrge bag with a smaller one that fits in it . I have leather bags of all styles ,  colors , sizes and shapes .  Some women have shoe  fetish  and mine is handbags.

Re: How often do you swap out your handbag?

About three times a year. I have to wear lightweight bags so I am limited. One pound or under. It’s usually Lug bags. The small ones. I kept some leather ones but rarely wear them.
