When it comes to bags, nothing worse than passing up something you love and then regretting it. We’ve all been there – something catches our eye, we hesitate, it’s gone forever and then we obsess about it endlessly. The Bag That Got Away is a common theme over at our PurseForum, where many members keep running lists of the out-of-season bags they’re longing for in their post signatures, hoping that another member will spy them somewhere and tip them off. Everyone knows the term “buyer’s remorse”, but what about the remorse that comes from not buying?
As part of our celebration leading up to our very own National Handbag Day on October 10, the PurseBlog team went to work thinking of all the bags that we wish we had grabbed before they disappeared. Sometimes it’s a bag that didn’t seem as charming when it came out as it does now, all these years later, and other times it’s a bag that we bet would hit the sale section that sold out before it ever got marked down. Also, Spring 2008, in retrospect, was a great season for handbags. Whatever happened, here are the bags that keep us each checking eBay on the regular.
