may i ask you- the absolutely gorgeous vintage chanel in brown-- is that a metallic brown or gold? i'm just wondering because it looks antiqued gold to me. i've heard chanel is reissuing the reissue in an antiqued gold, so i am just praying that it looks somewhat like yours because it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!
Oh wow, i never actually made a list of all my bags before!
My bags, high school into college, were mainly Coaches. I can't get rid of bags either, though i will do extended lending to trusted friends. I love all bags to totally zip up or close b/c i am wary of pickpockets on subways and such.
my 1st purse:
Taupe Liz Claiborne flap bag.
Coach, all black leather except for last one:
large black single buckle backpack
small pochette-type zip top
zippered large tote bag
med. zip-top flat purse with buckles on side straps
Black nylon 3 compartment tote
medium Black nylon messenger bag w/ leather accents
Bamboo handle black suede purse

Black medium Biga
spring pea green small bag with lavander suede lining and silver pushlocks

white and black leather (yes, i liked it so much i got 2 colors) tote bag that looks like a Michael Kors/Celine style, very clean lines.

brown suede frame purse with snakeskin detailing
silver beaded Walbourg evening bag

Luna, don't know what you're talking about... you have a great collection! I love the color of the faithful bag (was hoping that the Balenciaga ink was going to be that color, but oh well!), and especially love the handbag you made!!!
