What handbag should my mom get ?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I know this is a forum for Men but I have a small query smile.gif

My mom was looking at coach but I think they're rubbish

Anything else I should help her browse for ? I only know of Dior, LV, Gucci, Bottega Veneta for the ladies facepalm.gif

Budget around USD $500 or less i suppose she's not into high end brands but anything with good enough quality

Something similar to:

http://www.ssense.com/women/product/marc_by_marc_jacobs/black_francesca_tote/45955

http://www.ssense.com/women/product/marc_by_marc_jacobs/lil_shifty_bag/45957

Suggestions welcomed!

Longchamp is cheap and easy, although she might have one already?

What does she need it for?
How big does it need to be?
Does she care about external labels?
Black, brown, or other?

Not exactly sure of the dimensions she is after but i can find out. Doesnt have to be bulky and massive, medium sized ones as per marc jacobs links above are fine i suppose

To be honest i dont even know what she stores in the handbag, but im guessing daily stuff like books, purse, keys, NO LAPTOP or IPAD will be stored in the bag btw

How do you mean by external labels ?

Basic colors are fine - black, brown, navy. Not looking for bright colors like red, yellow, aquamarine etc

How big does it need to be? big enough to fit everything she could ever possibly need, while on the go.
Does she care about external labels? what kind of a dumbass question is that? OF COURSE SHE CARES!
Black, brown, or other? whatever color matches these shoes she just bought.

Answers above.

Neither. For both brands, you can easily fine a nicer one in your local saks / last call / nor die rack. If you have more budget, I suggest to buy something more elegant and nicer.

For handbags, I recommend Bottega Veneta Class Woven / Chanel 2.55 or Classic Flap or Grand shopping tote / Vuitton leather ones(no patent no canvas) / Lady Dior.

If you have more money to spend, go for Hermes. My personal fav is Chanel, Lady Dior and Bottega. Some Vuitton pieces are very nice also.

Checkout http://www.net-a-porter.com/ You'll get an idea.

I just found this page while browsing for handbags and some are in your price range and look pretty nice imo. You might want to take a look.

Take your self and this silly query elsewhere. This is not a women's hand bag forum - one about women or their handbags would be a good start.

This must take the prize for the most ridiculous thread of the year so far. It would certainly have won that for 2011.

Such a sad troll and i pity an individual like yourself if you need to discuss about women on a forum called Styleforum, or any forum for the matter of fact. But that's OK, it's understandable if your best friend is your right hand.

Nice attempt though, it tickled me a bit actually. I was merely asking for opinions as this is pretty much the only forum i browse for fashion.

I suggest you edit your post to save yourself the embarassment

The ladies absolutely love Louis Vuitton. Make sure the branding is nice and conspicuous though.

I would think a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel would work (although it might be $200 over your budget). When you are faced with brand logos plastered over all the fashion brands (LV, burberry, Chanel etc), a well designed bag of would stand out more, hope it helps!
