What kind of handbag? Louis Vuitton Speedy 30

How much did it cost? $650

Where did you get it? It was a gift from my husband, Seth (then fiancé).

What does your handbag say about you? Classic style, practical and professional. Stylish but not overstated.

Why did you choose this handbag today? My Louis has been my reliable, go-to bag that I have depended on for the last three years. Today is also a busy day so when I’m out I like having this handbag with me so I can stuff it with papers and whatever else comes up (including breakfast and lunch).

What do you like about this handbag? It’s very roomy (I usually carry a bottle of water and a thin sweater in it) and it goes with every outfit, casual or business. Also, like most Louis Vuitton bags, the leather continues to tan as it ages. I love it more the older it gets.

How many handbags do you own? Probably around eight – not including clutches.

What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a handbag? I’m embarrassed to say, but I’ve paid more than $1,500 for one. I became obsessed with a Bottega Veneta hobo bag… but of course, justified the purchase knowing I’d use it forever. On the other end though, I’ve paid as little as $20 for a handbag and appreciate it just as much.

Image is… the way people view themselves physically and mentally. Ultimately, the way we view ourselves is what is projected to others. If we aren’t happy with the image we hold of ourselves, it’s going to take a lot more than a celebrity stylist, a shopping spree or a fabulous handbag to change it.

What’s in your handbag? Clockwise from top: BlackBerry, Dentyne Ice Arctic Chill gum, Cross pen for breast cancer, Smith’s minted rose lip balm, Neiman Marcus business card holder and Coach sunglasses.
