    Dooney and Bourke, is that you?!

      D&B has some very nice bags out recently. I’ve been shocked. I never like the brand and wrote them off as tacky city. But I’ve been surprised this last year or so to see some nice styles and good leathers on some of their bags.

      • twoturntables

        I totally agree. I used to think D&B was just gross. If LV couldn’t pull off rainbow monogram, D&B def could not.

      Really though! The leather on that bag is yummy looking

    • plastictresses

      Got me interested too!!!

    This is totally off topic; however, I wanted to give a shout out to Megs for being quoted in today’s Post related to Gucci.

    • Thank you! I was planning to share the article, it’s a really nice article and appreciate you giving me a shout out :)

    I just saw that Coach bag at Macy’s today. I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole. The leather had little cracks on it. Not scratches. Cracks.
    That MK bag is on my wish list.

    • That Coach display bag may have been abused in some way; Megs carried the Ace during fashion week and I thought it was so pretty in person!

      • And the one I carried was a sample, so it had been used a lot, and it was beautiful. Not sure what happened to the one you saw

      • Fuckoff

        A sample? hmm another purse blog/coach tie in…sigh…its getting old.

      • What do you mean about a tie in? I carried a Coach bag to the Coach show and it was loaned out as it was a sample from Coach. Just telling the truth about how the one I had looked in person

      • FashionableLena

        I don’t know either, but that was a red flag for me. If it was abused then the store should have pulled it off the shelf and replaced it with another one. I’ll just stick with my vintage Coach bags.

    More proof that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look chic. Great post.

    My favorite is the calf hair in 17. Reminds me of a Celine. Simple but striking!

    That being said, what I find is some “contemporary” brands offerings don’t lack style, but they many times lack quality. I remember when my mom carried Aigner and Coach and they were gorgeously made bags. She still has some and the leathers are scrumptious. Now, however, many comtemporary brands (and more and more the premier brands) are putting out pretty junk. And I don’t want the junk whether it’s $200 or $2000.

    So, bottom line, I really, really like when you do these posts – my ire is directed at the manufacturers. We’ll just all have to inspect these bags and rely heavily on people reporting their experience with the various brands on TPF to know which are potential keepers.

    • K_Elizabeth

      Totally agree! I have now bought and returned 2 Madewell bags because I love the look, but the quality of the leather was so disappointing…

    • Jerri R

      On Purseforum I saw several threads where LV and Chanel bags having quality issues.

      • Scottsdale Kim

        I’ve had serious quality issues with three lightly used Chanel bags and have not bought new Chanel bags since.

  • Katy ;P

    The Fossil bag looks so cute!

  • Barbara

    I have had good luck with GiGi New York. The quality is superb and made in the USA. I don’t not have any affiliation with them…but wish I did! ????

    • nps

      yes! love gigi! I just ordered another one and I dont even live in the US!

  • kaly

    Love and look forward to these type of lists!! Several bags on here have caught my eye; the leather Dooney bucket is lovely, the Furla is so cute, the Fossil is a great Fall look and SURPRISINGLY, the Coach bag!! I am so loving their leathers recently! I was pretty well done with them several years ago when EVERYONE was carrying the jacquard versions but lately I’m taking another look or two–particularly this Ace bag!! Thanks Meg for this list of affordable bags! :)

    Please look at the Duchess and the Madison May on http://www.indiahicks.com/rep/elizabethsans and check them out. They are well priced and attractive and even Hermes lovers like me have become converts!

  • Jade

    I have #s 11 and 14. :) Beautiful bags!

  • Honey Dewykins

    I bought myself the no. 7 Fossil Sydney Satchel last month, love it and can’t stop using it. I think Fossil made great quality leather bag and worth the price.
