    Hey-

    I'm looking for a nice gift for my attorney girlfriend who recently started at a firm after clerking for the last two years. I was with her this weekend and she was lusting after a Prada bag. I believe this one...

    It is called the Saffiano Lux Double-Zip Tote. The problem is $2k seems excessive. Anyone have a recommendation at about half the cost? Looking for something that will last a long time, that is nice, but not over the top, and not super flashy.

    Thanks a ton... don't let me down SF.

    Purseforum would be a good place to ask too.

    my experience with buying purses for women is to buy them what they are lusting for. and if you don't want to pay the price for it, find a different gift ;)

    ^ Was thinking this too OR just tell her how much you can spend. She'll either choose a cheaper bag or something else. Maybe pearl earrings/necklace she can wear to the office.
