I'm honestly not big on brand named bags. Although I'm a bag collector haha... I'll buy bags from forever21, little burgundy or H&M. I'm really not big on such bright popping colors or so much print of the brand - so coach, gucci, guess, MK, LV are not my taste. Maybe because I'm a night person who is out and about downtown, so I don't want to attract attention on the streets or subway. However I do own two bags from aldo which I adore and where on occasions such as a dinner party and such.
I have bought many a bag for my wife and to me the best hand bags are Coach they seem to be the best value stylish and have a classic look to them.
