Post your worst handbag purchases
There's a post about everyone's best handbag purchases... Anyone have awful horror stories about their worst handbag purchases? Hopefully you can share them, and maybe even prevent others from having possible bad experiences.

Oh I've made a lot of handbag mistakes in my life.

When those LV graffiti bags came out Guess ripped them off and I carried mine around like it was the best thing ever! (not having a clue what Vuitton was in those days) My boyfriend's friends would ask me jokingly, "Is that a Guess handbag?"

Ohhh.. and now I look at girls carrying Guess and unless they're 13 or under I just don't get it, but still realize in the back of my head I carried around that graffiti ripoff proudly so I can't judge!

Anything I've made mistakes on, I've either sold or given away... Uhhh. Ohh! I bought signature coach saddle bag back when I first went to college.... I sold it on ebay and got my cash back like 3 years later

Thought of another one... I bought a blue Herve Chapelier tote 5 years ago... The handles were only for hand-carrying... it sucked! So I bought another in pink/mocha. color.. customized it a little bit.. and sold the blue one.


I still wear it.. just cause there's so much damn room in that thing.

I bought this Puma Schattenboxen bag that I loved when I bought it, the next day I hated it. Took that sucker back to Commander Salamander. It was wierd looking, other than that not really.

Ohh... That's close! Mine is a shoulder bag.. not a messenger.. It has the shape of a bowling bag, sorta... I much prefer it in the shoulder bag. But then again.. Most guys would go for the messenger now that I think of it.

I bought this bag on 9/10/01.

Anyone thinking of buying the LV mini-monogram line...DON'T. The canvas gets dirty quickly and can't be cleaned properly (SA at the flagship in NYC said cleaning the bag may result in some of the monograms coming off).

that bag doesn't even look that bad.

Personally, I don't regret any of my bag purchases. All well thought out!

What is wrong with Guess bags? I own a Americian Exclusive one. Its ok, I dont use it much though.

Guess does rip other designers off alot though, but they still have some nice bags.

WHAT. I thought the monograms were jacquard? Wow LV got cheap, they'd screen on the hardwear if they could!
