CC 171: The Divorced Handbag Lover

In today’s installment of Closet Confessionals, we meet a handbag lover in her late 40s who has been a vegetarian for 25+ years. Because of this, her collection is comprised mostly of fabric or leather bags, and CC 171 has a soft spot in her heart for Louis Vuitton. While she’s come to accept that LV bags do have leather trim, she also favors Prada Nylon bags and states that her Prada SA is an integral part of her collecting journey.

While CC 171 has a lovely collection of handbags, she’s been on quite the journey since she first began loving and collecting bags in her 20s. After her divorce, she started fresh, though she states that there are some regrets over pieces that she sold, particularly original Prada Nylon Pieces. CC 171 also favors designer shoes and does admit that while shopping at times feels like a form of therapy, her divorce and subsequent home sale made her realize how much excess stuff she owned that she didn’t need.
