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.
Designer Handbags(Page 2)
If you’ve found your way here, you’ve probably spent quite a bit of money on designer handbags in your life, and I’d venture a guess that not all of those bags are in your current rotation. It’s a problem I’ve had before – I buy something, I carry it and then it makes its way into retirement in the back of my closet when something else takes its place.

I know, I know. It’s hard to separate the old image of Victoria Beckham, the Spice Girl and soccer WAG who used to permanently occupy the worst dressed list, from the New, Improved Victoria Beckham of the past several years, who always looks impeccably put together and who runs one of the only legitimate celebrity-backed fashion lines in the business.
I’m betting that you all remember the agony and the ecstasy that resulted from The Row releasing a $33,000 alligator backpack as part of its Spring 2012 collection. Some people gushed over it and media outlets reported that the piece sold out, but most of the accessories community gave the bag’s astronomical price tag a heavy eye-roll; it takes a good bit of nerve for a brand as new as The Row to go around demanding those kinds of prices, even if you think the bags are beautiful.
