If we are talking about a hypothetical handbag/wallet, I would want one that offers multiple ways to wear it (e.g., adjustable, sturdy strap to use over the shoulder/crossbody, as a handbag/wristlet, or as a clutch), blocks RFID signals for safety and, by going well with multiple outfits, extends versatility of use from day to evening activities
Definitely hypothetical, and very current touch with the RFID blocking. Thank you!
My ideal handbag would be something I couldn’t dream of affording unless I won it. 😉 Like a big, classic Louis Vuitton or Hermes, or Chanel bag… I need space to hold LOTS of stuff, handles as well as a strong shoulder strap; it needs to be Extremely well made so it will last- we’re talking “investment bag” here! I like leather- it wears well, ages well, and it’s farmed and truly bidodegradable and eco-friendly. (“Vegan Leather” always makes me laugh- it’s PLASTIC- a petrochemical poduct, and the worst polluter on the planet!) I love the textured leathers, such as ostrich… It should be a classic neutral (brown beige, black), or something totally wild like Lipstick Red- which frankly goes with almost everything now! I love the high-end Michael Kors bags with the charms, too… If money were no object, I love the wild and fun stuff: I love Lulu Guinness’ Doll Face bags because they are such total fun; I love the Kate Spade Jezaebel flamingo-handled tote for the same reason. My fave bag that I actually is a Lulu Giness Lips evening bag I scored on ebay… it holds almost Nothing save a lipstick, and is Totally impractical, but it is a work of art you can carry!
Going green, and so detailed I can practically visualize it. Thank you for taking the time for your submission, and good luck!
I like a textured bag in mocha leather that is smooth to the touch with a subtle recurring rare geometric pattern (i.e. rhombus, fractal based, etc)
That would definitely be unique from a lot of things I see, thank you!
Love your store, great prices and wonderful variety!
Love your store, great prices and wonderful variety! My ideal bag would be spacious with tons of pockets 9zippered and otherwise) with 3 divided sections and a comfortable shoulder strap. And of course it would be dark denim.
Thank you for your patronage! Very roomy and organized, good luck!
Every little bit helps!
My ideal wallet, would have lots of areas to tuck cards and receipts. I want it to be non black, so I can find it in my bag fast! A secure latch so things don’t fall out. Pretty enough to carry on it’s own, and detachable wrist strap would be great too!
Great ideas! Hopefully a manufacturer is among the readers here, and is taking notes 🙂
The handbag/wallet must go with whatever outfit that I am wearing (perhaps a chamelion bag?), last a long time and be easy to keep in my possession, both by hand and by handbag strap/chain
That would certainly make choosing the right accessory easier. Thank you!
For my ideal bag, it would need to easily accessed while it’s hanging on my shoulder (I’ve always got lots of things in my hands so my bag is on my shoulder) and designed for ultra-organization so I can easily find what I need. I’d also like the inside to be light so I can see things when I’m trying to find them, and it needs to be really sturdy because my bags take a beating. As far as looks, I like something classy enough for working but casual enough that I can grab and go with jeans.
Sounds good, good luck and thanks for coming by!
My ideal handbag would be a shoulder bag in plum colored pebbled leather that is big enough to all my daily essentials (wallet, card holder, makeup back, coupons, umbrella, tablet) with LOTS of compartments and exterior pockets.
A little extra space definitely can go a long way, thanks and good luck!
My ideal wallet is made of leather and has lots of card slots, a change slot and very important to me is a checkbook cover and place to put it in the wallet. It’s getting harder and harder to find those. I would also like it to be cute in a bright color.
My ideal handbag would be a hobo style distressed leather with shoulder strap in a medium size. Inside zipper pockets for phone, etc.
The ideal bag would be…just big enough to hold a call phone, eyeglasses,sunglasses, keys and a small wallet. Not too small and not too big!!
My ideal handbag is based on a birkin bag with a classis timeless structure, good quality leather and of a neutral colour that works well with any outfit:)
My ideal wallet could double as a clutch/wristlet (might as well throw in a detachable shoulder strap too!). Made with quality and long lasting leather (simple, timeless, & easy to care for), the wallet would have to be large enough to fit all the essentials… iPhones, car keys, misc notes and receipts, and maybe a mint or two and a pack of gum…. Just enough storage to get me by without my purse, but small enough to still be carried in purses when need be. I’d have one in a classic, neutral brown, as well as a few in colors like purple and ivory (or maybe a nice print). Sounds an awful lot like a Lauren actually!!!
My ideal handbag would go with every outfit and would it would always be in style regardless of the season.
