CC 131: The Collector who tells It like It Is

In today’s installment of closet Confessionals, we meet a collector in her early 50s who owns much more bags than her age in years…wow! A collector for around two decades, this confessor has amassed a large collection but names a few favorites like her Chanel tote, which also happens to be the priciest bag she’s ever purchased.

Hailing from England, it’s also not unexpected that this collector frequents Mulberry, siting two Bayswater bags as favorites in her collection. This confessor’s love for bags goes beyond just acquiring them; rather, she enjoys the act of shopping as a whole. read the full CC and take a look at pictures from CC 131’s collection now!

Do you feel like your bags change people’s perceptions of you or how you’re treated? in some cases if someone is a bag lover they just admire my bag but if not they can in some cases not understand why I would spend so much money on them. I know the history of some of the houses like Louis Vuitton and Chanel and it’s that together with the craftsmanship that makes them special. other people don’t appreciate that but think nothing of spending substantial amounts say on going out every week or going on holidays etc we all choose what we spend our money on so I say please don’t judge. It is good when they are admired and there’s a mutual appreciation of handbags.
