    I am 32 and love the IT bags, except for the blue and pink ones. The others are just too boring and conservative.

    I like the periwinkle "It" bucket, but I'll agree that it's a LV wannabee!

    i didn't mind the bags ...just figured they weren't my thing..until i saw them in person..the i figured they are nobodys thing :wink: no no i kid... i just think that the logo being so blurry and the leather being not so leathery doesn't suit anyones style

    These bags are all over the place here in northeastern Ohio. I noticed at Dillards yesterday the "It" bag display case has grown since the relase of these bags last fall. They now have larger more "adult" looking bags in the collection, but I'm still not fond of the leather. Anyway, I see these bags at the supermarket, mall, salon and the school where I work. Apparently, people of all ages are buying them here. The young girls are finding D&B "hip", so I guess the marketing has been successful for D&B.

    Er...the reason the Leather is not so Leathery is beacuse it's Not leather, but all weather treated cotton.

    I like them, BF just bought me the Large Domed Satchel in Bubble Gum w/ matching wristlet.

    Oddly enough everyone calls it a LV Murakami rip-off which in a way it might be but I would never buy any LV bag, they just don't appeal to me.

    D&B still has their classic bags for the older set, but have revamped their line, which to be honest they really needed to do before it tanked. Face it more and more the marketing world is owned by my generation. Gen-Y is in control of a lot of spending dollars and if brands have to wh*re themselves a little to stay afloat then so be it...after all it is the oldest profession in the world. :wink:

    Doesn't make it right, but that's life.

    I actually like the rainbow D & B. Not as much as originally, but one of my classmates had a black one, and I fell in love with it. I especially LOVE the multicolor zipper! *giggles*

    I just really love the black background with rainbow pattern.

    They're not THAT bad actually.. BUT why do people carry It bags with their backpack around campus when they can easily fit whatever's in their tiny It bag in their backpack? I seriously can't think of any other reason than to show off.

    I know it looks silly sometimes. I see girls do it with a lot of small designer bags- especially LV pochettes. Sometimes I carry a small purse with my backpack but I don't have any designer bags to show off :P . Usually it's because I want my wallet, keys and phone in a place that's easy to reach so that I'm not digging through a backpack full of books.

    Yup, that me and exactly my reason too. Plus, I trash my backpacks at school. It weighs a bloody ton and I just dropped them on the floor when I reach some place. If my cell phone and sunglasses were in there... :doh: Well, that's the end of those!

    I think they are even cuter than the LV!

    Oi vey I'm sick of these. Obviously they are shameless LV rip-offs and I don't understand why people like them. My mom's coworker is over forty and has a blue one! :doh: She looks like she's trying really hard to be young, but she just looks cheap and tacky.

    Well, after carrying around Fuschia Jelly Bag for a few months (and yes, it was a cute copy I got from AVON), I bought the Black Tassel Tote It bag and matching wallet. It's actually pretty sturdy... and I feel more comfortable using it than my LV Partition (It's too small, I only use it for parties). After reading all the posts, I would rather spend $ on this bag as opposed to fake LV's. Sure, it looks like an LV copy, but at least I didn't spend half my paycheck on a bigger LV bag. At the mall yesterday, I kept looking at all the D&B bags, and they all looked so boring. I dunno, I guess seeing the black tote with the multicolor looked more versatile than a boring Brown/Beige bag of the same style. Then, I spotted a lady with a fake Speedy, looking at the same IT bags. I guess if I were her, I'd trash the fake bag (because people can tell it's fake) and at least get a real D&B white IT bag. Oh well.. my 2cents... anyone seen the newer bags out yet? I think a gym bag and a circle bag... really cute! The new hearts line... looks cute too. I figure, I'm 30, why not? I really don't care if they are for the younger crowd.

    Working at the Fashion Island mall in Newport yesterday, I saw a few IT bags, but then I also saw many Black and white multicolor LV Speedys. I have to say, when the black is a replica, you can really tell, just by looking at the colors! I alctually saw a real one yesterday.. and wow, it was really pretty. I can see how some people think the DB bag is a fake, but when you see an LV multicolore fake (you can tell by counting the handful of logo colors on the bag), it kind of makes you wonder how embarrassed that person would feel if they stood next to an authentic one!
