They're gorgeous! Happy birthday! But, no, I've never heard of them until now. I can say that I have adored both Matt & Nat bags I've purchased.

I have a Matt & Nat bag. I haven't heard of that brand, though.

$450 for a handbag? I can't even relate to that.

Me either. I found myself mentally calculating how much dog food it would buy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> But I just wanted to say welcome back! I was wondering where you had been.<br><br>
A lot of them are made in USA. That's awesome. To me anyway.

Thank the FSM I'm not the only one. I almost spit out my tea when I saw that. I can't fathom ever paying that much for something to put my gum, wallet and tampons in.

And I was debating back and forth about spending $30 for my vegan wallet. But I buy lots of guitar related stuff that costs as much or more than that handbag so I guess it's about what is important to you.<br><br>
Can't help you out on the brand but I can say that (so far) all of my vegan, made in the USA products have been super durable. If you like it I say go for it.

Lol, trust me, I had the same reaction. I've never owned a purse ( I kid you not) so hubby found these guys and thought I would like it for my 30th. I might be terrified to bring it to the vet clinic for fear of it getting damaged! LOL!<br><br>
I think it's nice to see something that compares to high end purses that is vegan though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

WOW, I thought my new bag was high end. I have the Susanne Nichole "LOVE" bag, but I got it at 70% off right before the holidays. I wasn't even about to pay $95.00 for a bag.<br><br>

I don't mind paying a lot for something that I will use for years. They are lovely purses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yeah I wouldn't want it anywhere near a vet clinic. The last thing you want is a dog finding it and having an accident on it or being sick on it.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

How long do women use the same purse though? A lot of women I know buy new ones or alternate between different purses on a regular basis.

Depends on the person. My mom has a ridiculous number of them but doesn't use half of them... though she does rotate them on occasion.<br><br>
I have three at the moment - one that I use every day (which I got for free <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">), one that's a cheap but fancy one for special occasions (it's in storage at my parents' house), and one that's good for traveling because it's across-the-body and it's easy to hold your hand over the zipper when you're in touristy (aka pickpocket-y) areas. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I usually only change purses when I decide the one that I'm using isn't working for some reason - too big or small for what I'm regularly carrying at that point, or broken beyond repair, etc. That doesn't happen very often, maybe every couple years.<br><br>
I'd personally never spend $450 on a purse (I spend on traveling instead), but if you like it Tigress, it's a really beautiful purse.

Long before I went vegan, I was a purse snob. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> I worked in money management, so it was quite prevalent for the professional women in my office to have high-end bags, brief cases and shoes. I still like a nice purse. I get lots of complements on the M & N I'm carrying now, but it honestly looks like high-end leather. When I first got it, I was a little disturbed as I hadn't carried a leather-looking purse for years.

Lol I think I would have to keep it in my desk in the office if I brought it to work, it wuld cost more than any one item that I own, lol!!!<br><br>

I don't mind spending money on something that will last me a long time. I am not the type of girl who has lots of shoes or bags ( 2 pair of shoes - work ones and sneakers and no purses at all !) so this would be THEE purse.<br><br>
I heard they are very durable as well. Women at my work have those gucci and louis vutton bags that are like 1200 bucks!! When I showed them this purse they thought it looked great, which is nice to see a vegan purse hold it's one fashion wise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I looked at M & N purses too but they didn't seem as "structured" as I like. Does that make sense?

VT, what do you carry your money and ID and things in now? Do you use a backpack or something, or just carry a loose wallet?

Those are nice. Totally out of my price range, though.<br><br>
I do have two Pansy Maiden handbags, and I'm saving up for a third. <a href="http://www.pansymaiden.com/" target="_blank">http://www.pansymaiden.com/</a><br>
These ones are more my style, too. Vegan, sustainable, and handmade in USA. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"></div>

<br>
Oh I like those.
