If you were only allowed to have ONE handbag...
Imagine you are only allowed to have one handbag.

It can be any price. It can be for work, for casual, for evening, whatever you like, but just the one bag, for life!!

That means if you choose an evening clutch, you'll have to go to work carrying your dad's old briefcase and you'll have to carry around your play-stuff in your little brother's "Ninja Turtles" white canvas tote. And if you choose this year's "It" bag, you'll still have to be carrying it ten years from now (when it will be quite un-It!)

This exercise is to get a good feel of what types of bags are really the most valuable, flexible and practical

Hee hee, fun thread! The Quest of the Ultimate Bag...the story of my life!

...for LIFE, right? If it goes beserk you can't ever buy another bag? Then it will have to be durable...and big ... There is a certain nomadic romance to living out of a suitcase, so maybe I would choose antique leather luggage or something like that...

Absolutely! Wouldn't that be a fantastic bag to own. Here's a few pics from a recent auction on ebay .

Edited to add, the first one is a 25cm, I'm not sure what second one is, looks more like a 35cm. Nonetheless, these bags are stunning.

You're right, I guess after you get the bag you're dreaming of, the next bag is always on the brain .
