Oh man..I've been lusting after that Roma 2 in Cream Snake for a while now. I've never had a bag that large, but think I could get used to it! I'm still in love with and using my Coach Ashley Satchel in "putty"

MandySays, the Cream Snake Roma 2 Tote is one of my favorite bags.

Your Coach Ashley Satchel is a great bag and the deal you got was AMAZING. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup} Enjoy!

Thanks! And I am scouring ebay for them..too bad they don't do easy pay on the bay Smiley Wink

Re: Handbag Aficionados: What lucky bag are you carrying today?

twopeas, I don't own any Fossil handbags... yet. I've purchased their watches before and absolutely love them - great quality and very affordable.

jaxs mom, I love me some Dooney. Speaking of which, did your replacement Logo Lock ship?

faeriemoon, gorgeous!

Thanks for sharing ladies!

stevieb, congrats on your new Dooney tote; it sounds lovely!

What I love most about these "what bag are you carrying" threads is looking up bags people are writing about.

I wasn't familiar with Marc Cross handbags, now, thanks to your post, I am. The Scottie collection is very nice. {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

This handbag habit of mine started last year (coincides with my older son going off to college {#emotions_dlg.crying}). I used to be a one black bag till it died kind of girl.

I've come a long way. Too long... {#emotions_dlg.ohmy}

Thanks RD...

As a point of information (and in the interest of full disclosure {#emotions_dlg.laugh}), Mark Cross has been around, off and on, for a very, very long time and the brand has been periodically reinvented... I got my bags (two satchels and two hobos, along with a leather and nylon small tote) a number of years ago. At that point, while it was still a 'luxury' brand, it wasn't offered along the lines of the the rather significant price points you see in today's Mark Cross line! When I nabbed mine, things were still measured in the hundreds, not in the thousands!

Glad you started the thread. I too enjoy them and have grown sort of weary of all the many GILI threads, so had been toying with starting an "it's fall: what are you carrying and/or buying" thread, but never got around to it!

Interesting that you developed your little handbag, uh, 'problem'... as your baby was heading off to school! Gracious, you just have to hope it doesn't escalate as the others start fleeing the nest!

Wink

I've long had a rather serious desire to accumulate handbags, but it's only been put into serious action over the past decade or so, which is plenty of time to have done some damage... I was tidying up the closets last night and said to myself, how utterly ridiculous my little 'problem' has become. At least, as of today, I'm sworn off any new acquisitions... Let's see how long that resolution holds...

I'm carrying The Jenny bag by Rioni...I think stevie is the only other poster who knows the brand. While it's not a widely known brand, they do turn a few heads for double takes.

They're a nicely kept little secret, aren't they! But every once in a while a thread surfaces here about them joined in by a few of us who know and enjoy this Italian brand... I think some folks just see them as LV 'knock offs', but I think they have plenty going for them in their own right and heaven only knows, the prices are a good bit more affordable! I love Rioni and have several bags by them, all well made, well used and very sturdy! Enjoy that pretty Jenny bag!

I've got a larger satchel in the distressed luggage choice and it's very pretty. I don't carry it often because it's almost the size of a business case, but is a great looking bag!
