My First Love....PURSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Though greatly outnumbered by my shoe collection, my purse collection has always been and will always remain, my first love. I can't really tell you when or how I first fell in love with purses. I just know that in 2002 (vs 2006 when I bought my first 3 pairs of CLs), I walked into Louis Vuitton and so began my love affair with purses. Presenting my colorful purse collection:

Family Picture

Big thanks to my mom for helping me out with this one :) As I started to take each purse out of its dust bag, it quickly became apparent that there was no good way to display all of these purses together. The above mess you see was the best we could do :P One quick note before I go into each designer family; for a lot of these purses, I have no idea what the official name is. I'll try my best to fill in the blanks but for now, enjoy!!

The End (for now!)


Just like my shoe collection, I will be adding this post to the sidebar for easy access. As I add new purses to my collection, I will also update this post.

PS: My Chanel Cambon is MIA but should be coming home soon :)

Purse Addict said...

I will work on trying to save up for a birkin but I have a few more things on my list to get through first :p

Michael St. James said...

I'm obsessed with all of your Chanel bags and the Fendi Spy initiated my handbag fetish so I love the fact that you have one!

Purse Addict said...

Thank you, Michael!! I'm basically addicted to buying flaps...too bad they're becoming sooooo expensive!! The new price for a 227 is 3600 :( I'm really attached to my Spy...for awhile, I wasn't really into any bags, then the Spy came along and just like that, I was back in it :)

lilmissb said...

OMG! *faint* Lovely collection!

I love the Chanels & the YSl Majorelle. We could have been bag twins on the latter as I almost bought that same colour last year!

And I was a tempete cousin with you as I had the Day GSH.

Purse Addict said...

Thanks, T!!

Lol...I got the majorelle during the crazy saks sale of 08..love sales!!

standby passenger said...

Iridiai said...

Thank you, Iridiai!!

stylish girl - thank you and welcome to the blogging world!!

FashionAve - Thanks for following me, I will visit your blog in a bit :)

ManoloChooLou said...

I don't visit for a couple of days and your blog becomes porn for women! LOL :) Lovely collection--both purses and shoes. I really like the Mulberry purple ostrich bag.

How do you ever decide which one to carry?!?

Purse Addict said...

LOL, hi Manolo!! I finally got my lazy butt to take some pictures and hence the many new pictures you see :)

I have a 3-week rule for my purses (mainly cus I hate switching the stuff back and forth). I try to go through them all once before I repeat any one purse...so I guess the simple answer is, I randomly choose one that hasn't recently been worn yet...LOL

Thavasa said...

Just when I thought you got the best shose collection I've ever seen...you surprise us again with such stunning purse collection!! The most I like about your collection is that you got all these beautiful colors, not just black or neutrals, bags or shoses. the purple orstrich Mulberry is such a good buy, not mention all these colorful Chanel flaps!!

Purse Addict said...

^^Thanks, hun!!

I know, I'm actually a bit surprised myself abt all the colors I have...LOL

The Mulberry was an incredible purchase...I think if you read back to the original post, I talk about how I walked in, saw the purse, and was then informed that it was on SALE because of Mother's Day!!!

SoCalFashionista said...

Such a gorgeous collection! love them all!

The Style Mansion said...

The Dior is delicious

MadsaboutU said...

I'm in awe :)

Michelle said...

Beautiful collection and nice photos! I love the metallic silver reissue, teal Muse, and the python bag!! I am going to have reconsider the Bayswater, it looks amazing in the bright colored ostrich. I actually got the same two bags from the Chanel cruise collection except got the bleu roi flap in lambskin. Of course I've still be too scared to use it because it's been pouring here!

Behind The Seams said...

Purse Addict said...

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments!!

Mia said...

Thank you! I got her when I was in Milan during the Saddlebag craze :)

Sara said...

Absolutely love your Balenciaga family! You've got some great colors.

One of my favorite bags of all time, somehow I only just bought my very first, black giant brief with silver hardware <3

Have you heard THE news? Balenciaga is releasing suede bags next season. First time ever! So incredible. We've ordered them(I'm that fashion addict that works on Abbot Kinney in Venice).

Honestly, waiting for something THAT good is torture. Oh, the collection is never complete. That is at the top of my list for next season. :)

Purse Addict said...

Hi Sara! Thank you and congrats on your first Bal!! Love the Giant Brief...I sorta, kinda want a Giant Day but I'll hold off for now :P

Suede you say?! I haven't been keeping up with Bal lately but I'll def keep that in mind :) I also must visit you when your order comes in so I can maybe drool along with you ;)

Shazz said...

Impressive collection! =) I'm a Chanel and Bottega Veneta girl myself. I think the BV bag that you don't have the name yet is called 'Sloane'. I have the same, in black.

Purse Addict said...

Thanks for the intel, Shazz!!

Luxury Lover said...

This is the first time I've seen your blog and I think I'm in lurve! Your bag collection makes my mouth water, bags are my first love too, and I love the family photo.

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it
was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to
the whole thing. Do you have any tips for newbie blog
writers? I'd really appreciate it.
