Like a British Britney Spears and KFed. There is a hilarious website called chavscum.co.uk that makes fun of them and you will see what a chav is.
Thanks for the explanation! I will definitely check out the website!

My least favourite bags that I own are my LVs, but I didn't purchase them myself so I guess that doesn't count (I did, however, buy one for my mom 5 years ago and she never carried hers either)

The worst purchases I've made for myself must be some of my dior bags. Mostly the smaller ones like the saddlebag pouches, and the crazy mulitcolor ones that doesn't go with anything. I have a habit of buying smaller bags that I never carry. I usually always carry the bigger and more expensive bags.

For me too, the worst bags I have ever bought are the monogram ones, LV, Gucci, Fendi, you name it. Utterly bad choices, they look so tacky nouveau-riche... Speedy, Alma, Baguette...

Standing exceptions are for me: the LV mini HL monogram canvas and to a lesser degree the Gucci messenger

Dior Gaucho - UGH. Nasty, nasty bag.

LV Denim Neo-speedy - I STOPPED using it about 2 or 3 months after I got it.
Gucci

My Mulberry green bag that I only used twice. Damn bag weighs 5 kilos. EMPTY. I really loved it at first and then I realized I don't really like it.

A red Balenciaga replica from Aldo It was impossible to get hold of any Balenciagas a year or 2 ago and the ONLY time I saw one in the store (Holts), the SA told me it was the only one and it was in a sky blue colour. That was also right after I bought my replica from the Aldo. I really loved the Balenciaga...and my impulse lead me to buy the replica.

I must admit..besides the zipper at the bottom (which makes the whole bag really fake) it's not a bad bag...they did a pretty good job at copying the real one...but I"m so ashamed of carrying it now, especially after reading this forum but regardless...I wouldn't be able to afford a real balenciaga anyways=_=

Oh well...I used that bag twice..and it is now hidden in my closet.

I think that most people don't like Louis Vuitton because of the massive monograming. So what if tons of housewives have a bag you have, Vuitton is a staple for handbags, a size, shape, or color for anyone. I used the Chain print mini pochete as a wallet, which I wore in my butt pocket, and the only damage done to it is the lock has pressed into the vinyl. I have overused, that thing to heck, and its still holding up amazingly. It just bothers me when people insult Louis Vuitton.
