first gifted was a small black Tanner Krolle shoulder bag with purple stitching (a friend used to work for them which was rather handy) which I still use occassionally, but is rather worn now.

first bought - LV alma in myrtille epi. I love it, but don't use it nearly as much as I should.

Salvatore Ferragamo tote, bought it myself when I was 14 or 15. I blew my first "big" paycheck on the bag and a Fendi wallet. Looking back (even though I'm only 19 now), Ferragamo was a surprising choice for someone that age - but turned out to be a great decision, since it held up beautifully despite being overstuffed with textbooks and cosmetics. It's still in lovely condition.

Prior to that, I had a lot of hand-me-downs from the women in my family from the shopping expeditions they took (take) annually when I was little (I flew overseas for the first time when I was only a couple months old, so shopping has been a life-long hobby...!). It's very exciting for me to have bags that are so well-traveled and loved...I guess it makes them seem a little more special. They've probably been to more places in this world than I have! This little collection includes mostly Gucci and Louis, and is shared between me and my sister. She was quite pleased to have a purse older than she was to show off on her first day of high school.

Blah blah blah, it's almost silly how talking about my first bags makes me start to reminisce (sp.) so much!

As I said I was going to, I got my first designer bag, a classic Chanel last week! I it so much as I'm so pleased with it! I saved up for quite a while which makes me cherish it even more! It's beige caviar with gold hardware and a bit longer height wise and shorter widthwise than the 2.55. I will post pics asap!

Mine was a Gucci bag from the mid 80s. They actually make a similar one again right now (I'll try to find a pict.) anyway, it was my mom's and she gave it to me. I still use it on occassion now due to the sentimental value.
