New Bag purchases! (October 2005 - July 200
I thought that it might be fun to make a thread devoted to pictures and stories about newly-bought bags. We all know how exciting it is to get a great new handbag, and I'd love to see what people are buying!

I'll start off with my own...

So after obsessing over this bag:
for weeks, I finally went down to the Marc Jacobs boutique near me to check it out. I was even prepared to shell out the money for it if I loved it. But I was so disappointed! The size was kind of awkward, and the chain looked too long on me.

So, feeling dejected, I went over to the Marc by MJ boutique, and found this:


I'd loved it since I saw it on the MJ website when the resort collection came out, but was afraid that it would be too big. It's actually the PERFECT size! I had one of those great bag moments when I saw it -- like ZING, this is the one for you! (Hahaha, I'm such a dork) Seriously though, I'm in love, it's funky and young and cool but not too out there.

I'm sorry I don't have any real pictures of it, I'm at home for the weekend and don't have my camera with me. But it looks even better than in the pics from eluxury. It was also more than $500 cheaper than the bag I was originally looking at, so I'm even happier with it!

Now I'm wondering what I should do, if anything, to protect it. Scotch guard for the fabric and leather protector for the handles? Any other ideas?

good thread pietonne....

I bought this bag today from Dolce & Gabbana. I wanted a shoulder bag which was more structured then my current collection (paddingtons, spy) which was of a medium size. I need to use it as an everyday bag for shopping trips etc. Had a good look around, Dior had some nice leather bags but they were so expensive....this D&G cost £461.

Nice bag everyone!

The last bag I got was a white vintage clutch with gold clasp. It was so cheap

the leather's amazing! im still trying to figure out how they did the color on it. i got the taupe in "icey" leather, it's almost like a pebbled leather, but more textured and shiney. it's shiney almost like if you were to get a rough ice-chunk and let it sit in a room and begin to melt. some articles on this bag say that the leather is stiff, but i have found that it's not at all the case. it's very supple and durable. i'd be affraid if it was a thinner softer leather, like chanel....i have heard that the petrol and i think black are stiffer than the taupe. im not entirely sure why...but i know because with color, there's a different dye process because of the properties in the color stain, that may be why there's a difference in suppleness and softness.

when i was in italy i went to the tanneries and got to see how they apply color coats to hides to get irredecent colors and stuff, before they make bags out of the hides. it was really amazing! it seems like this color, although in some lights looks almost like a matte mocha color, is layered with like a lighter taupe underneath and then toned down with a darker shade of taupe over it.

i paint and the only thing i can compare it to, since i have never seen any leather like this on a bag before, is like glazes in oil paintings....where the under-painting shows through. i like the smooth leather (nappa) that was sold at boutiques and photographed in the holiday book for neiman marcus....but i LOVE mine in the "icey" leather. i think its adds a subtle luxury to it, since its a more toned down color. the nappa seems more like a flat color and i'd assume it would scratch. i have seen several other companies bags in a nappa type leather and once its scratched, there's nothing you can really do but wait for it to blend in.
