    LOL hysterical …loved this

  • Love the Prada Saffiano description… My regular bag is an old Mulberry Mitzy hobo – what does that say about me?

    • At what point in your life, you spent a not-insignificant amount of time looking for a pair of riding boots in exactly the right shade of brown.

      • Fair enough! ;)

      • cara

        That would be cognac… the exact shade of cognac, thankyouverymuch (it was a full 2 years and while the shade is perfect- everything else is a little off. Search CONTINUES into year 3– with a bonus search for a belt in same shade.)

    The ones for the Speedy and Chanel flap are spot on!

  • FH

    I already have a Balenciaga moto bag and a RM mini MAC and plan on purchasing a Prada later this year. Does that make me a confused individual?!!

    • Guest

      My sister from another mister!

  • Yang

  • lol this post is spot on and hilarious. What if you qualify for more than one of these things?

  • Guest

    Now THAT’S the writing of the Amanda that I remember! Very funny. I have several of these bags. Should I seek treatment for multiple personality disorder?

  • Jenny

    I’m carrying my Alexander Wang Rockie today, I’m assuming this means I am chic and also seriously care about my orthopedic health :) Loved this post Amanda, so funny!

  • Renae

    Ha, that is so spot on it’s not funny! I had no idea I was that transparent!!!!

  • So funny – and so true! I am The Prada.

  • So funny – and so true! I am The Prada.

    The quip about Miranda Kerr and the Man Repeller SLAYED me.

  • missarewa

    the Prada Saffiano description is the TRUTH! balling ever so quietly from my cubicle

  • Ruhee

    The man repeller was spot on…

    • twoturntables

      Is it wrong that I saw it and thought “Oooo, I like it!”?

  • Ruhee

    The man repeller was spot on…

  • Ihearthandbags

    OMG, The LV descrpition is so spot-on! Love it!!

    • susieg

  • Kristin

    This is flipping hilarious.

  • ericaharel.com

    Love your insights!

  • kate w.

    The birkin description reminded me of the movie “The Proposal”…Sandra’s character carried one!

  • Geremy Campos

    This is hilarious and true.

  • Jennifer

    HIlarious! I have a traditional looking Kate Spade from 2 years ago…any thoughts??

    • dalhlousieKid

      Great minds think alike!

    • Guest

      I have a “first generation” Kate Spade — from the days when there really was a Kate Spade running the company. Perhaps I’m your mother.

  • FashionableLena

    I have both the Rockie and the RM MAC. I may not start that brunch e-mail chain, but being chic is definitely more important than my orthopedic health.

  • Gen

    LOL… esp. the Speedy and the RM Mac Clutch!

  • JT

    Who is this “handbag reading expert”? The introduction is so arrogant. Actually, the whole article is. What a joke.

    • Hi, my name is Amanda, I work here.

      • Iréne Shûkriya-Dutta Scharief

        Hahahaha!!!!

  • mlt2120

    Hahaha, this was funny. I’m 25 and still carry my Alexander McQueen Patent Trim Large Novak, which – I suppose – says that I find a good thing and take care of it forever. God, that Givenchy Antigona… I just need to start saving again.

  • Ddb

    I love cross body bags, I have the Dior, Hermes , and Chanel. What does that say about me?

    • dalhlousieKid

      You are rich :P

  • Madfabstyle

    Haha the louis speedy was my 1st bag too!!

  • JeremyScott

    This is a hilarious article, but the Celine Luggage Tote is kind of an obvious fake, so that’s kind of weird.

    • Au contraire, that’s an old stock image from the Celine site. In the early days of the Luggage Tote, Celine made them both with and without curved piping, depending on the color and size.

      • Abbi

        Amanda you’re just on the ball today!

      • I remember the piped vs. non-piped days very clearly because the Luggage Tote I wanted (the red one in the picture) didn’t have piping and I was very upset by that at the time.

  • whateversu

    lol I have a few of these bags by the one that get me was the LV speedy! That was indeed my first designer bag!!! Hahaha

  • Jen

    This post made my week! You were right about the speedy being a girl’s first. That was me 20 years ago and now with my Rocco, I can assure you I’ve found ways to carry it so as not to cripple myself… but bad back– be damned!

  • Iréne Shûkriya-Dutta Scharief

    I carry Chloe Paraty, what does that say about me?

  • Iréne Shûkriya-Dutta Scharief

    Actually Speedy was the bag after I had Prada, Givenchy and other designer bags :-)

  • Maya

    The Givenchy description is brilliant! Were you talking about me?!!! :))

  • twoturntables

    I have the Rocco, and I would give my first born for that Givenchy. Not only did you predict me, you predicted my future :)!

    Oh! But I love gray too. Kidding about the first born thing…No I’m not.

  • marimusing

    What would a Saint Laurent Sac du Jour say about you?

    • eep

      that you cannot afford a birkin ;)

  • Jenn

    hiLARious! what would you say about a Chanel quilted BOY bag?

  • cats inthebag

    OK, former English major here … . the Prada description, do you mean bawling? Or is “balling” some slang term I’m not familiar with? Sorry to be picky, just try to understand. I LOVED the rest of the article!

    • Jen

      “Ballin” yeah urban slang like “big baller shot caller” Balling just means you really got it going on!!

    • “Balling” is indeed a slang term – it means outwardly showing your success in flashy ways.

    Why are a lot of people against the price of SMc bags because they are not leather…i have 2 and they are gorgeous and receive compliments every time i carry mine….people purchase plastic Chanel boy bags for much more ??? I also have 2 Chanel bags and would say the SMc are just as nice

  • AGB

    The chanel one didn’t make sense.

  • Audrey

    I havea prada saffiano but don’t get the meaning of balling :(

  • A

    The description about the Louis Vuitton Speedy is so true! Literally almost everyone has that bag. It’s like a disease. It’s everywhere!
