That was me trying to prove that expensive and cheap bags can all be awful (those examples are my opinion) and that there was some justification in a good quality bag -just not if you are only buying it because Jessica Simpson had it.

Fine, I just saw your post as rude, there are ways to go about everything, not being so outspoken like you.

You have every right to not like the Balenciaga bags, or any other bag for that matter, is how you came forward, as those bags being ugly-and your opinion being the right one.

That was the way I saw it anyway.

But, let's agree to disagree.

I personally find it rude that you've launched this little attack on no provocation.

ESPECIALLY as I was defending 'It' bags.

This thread was started because people didn't see the point of 'it' bags and I was saying how popularity isn't something to aspire to, but if a bag is better made and the quality can't be matched then that is fine. I think that of the Mulberry Phoebe even though I don't own it.

I am not only sick of the popularity, I am sick of the price tag. I find it obscene to spend so much money on a handbag. I just think it is wrong and I am within my rights to think that.

Well I'm sorry if my intentions were lost in translation

Anyway I was just looking at the Betsey Johnson bags someone reccomended and they are quite nice! (no Mulberry Phoebe though :p)

Im sorry too.

I agree it's hard to find any decent bag that isen't designer or an 'it-bag' for that matter.

I like it! If all bags were amazing, how hard would it be to stand out It means the compliments start rolling in when you get the bag of your dreams. Sometimes the only way out is vintage. There was this cool bag on eBay last week that had a built in old fashioned phone on the front in working condition. I am so cross I missed the auction. Not sophisticated maybe but unique? Totally!

Sick of 'IT' Bags? Favorite Non-Designer (Gucci, LV, etc) Bags?
I've recently become obssessed with Gustto's most recent bag introductions: (pics from shopbop.com and activeendeavors.com and gustto.com)

I'm also looking for non-designer bags. I'd love a new and upcoming designer if anyone has any thoughts!

FashnVictim, you're welcome. There's a cool site, grechenscloset which has a search engine which can be pretty damaging to your wallet

http://directory.grechenscloset.com/

You can search for onlist listings of designers as well as boutiques selling their bags. Not every single designer is included, of course - that would be an impossible task.

I've read good feedback about Tano (as well as Dutchy) - what's your opinion of the leather? Thanks.
