Hi Megs and Vlad!

I am a tPFer and I love love love love your website. I am searching for my next purse and I have long been in love with the Celine Luggage Tote. I do, however, tend to stick with buying bags that retain their value. Do you think the Luggage Tote has staying power? Will it retain some kind of value or will it be another sad Chloe Paddington case?

It has been a while since I answered a question for Ask Megs, and it is time to bring it back. Whether it is a gift idea, helping narrowing down a bag choice, or anything else related to our coveted arm candy, I’d love to help out. This week, a reader wrote to ask for help to find the perfect bag for her 40th birthday gift from her husband.

Jeff is looking for a clutch for his girlfriend, who prefers muted colors (mainly black), and needs a respectable clutch that can transition from her daytime business job to night.

Hi,

I go on your site daily and love it!!. I love to read your reviews and have bought some of the bags you have recommended. I have a quick question. I am torn between two Louis Vuitton bags. I am interested in the Neverfull MM and the Speedy 35. I am going with the Damier version. I am looking long term and would be interested in your opinion.

I’m 23 yrs old and about a month ago started yearning for an exotic – (preferably crocodile, however python definitely caught my interest) so your recent post on the D’Angel bags had my attention. I’ve spoken to a few tpf-ers who purchased the bags in March, and was wondering if you had a chance to actually try on the bag and if you had any additional thoughts on it’s quality/workmanship.

Hi Megs,

Just read on your post for Mimi on $2k for a work and day bag. I hope you can give me an advice too .

I am about to give birth to our first child (a baby girl) and I am looking for a big, everyday bag that can serve as a diaper bag as well. I do not want an obvious or real diaper bag, instead I would like a chic, trendy bag that can be an everyday bag too.

Hi Megs,
So I’ve saved and can now treat myself to an ‘IT’ bag. Not enough for an exotic but enough for something around $2000. Given that this will have to be it until I get my next savings together, what would you recommend? I want it to be something that I can carry in jeans as well as in a suit to work.

Looking for bag…. I am just wondering if you know of anywhere I can still purchase the Marc Jacobs Hudson bag from? I know its old, but I LOVE it, and have been unsuccessful locating one. Or, if you know of a similar bag I might check out as an alternative?

Thanks!

marc jacobs hudsonOne of the recent coveted Marc Jacobs bags was the Hudson.

Over the span of Purse Blog’s existence, my email has been filled with people asking questions about what handbag to buy. Even when I am out in public now, if anyone knows what I do, I have them asking me if I approve of their purchase or what should be their next. I spend hours everyday studying bags. My email is inundated with messages from designers asking me to review lines.
