  1. which bag I'm getting for my birthday! It's still a bit away (october 27th), but my Dad said he'd be buying me a brand new bag! And coming from him, this is extremely rare. So he's just waiting for me to tell him which one I want, and I can't decide. I change my mind literally EVERY day!

    I know for a fact I want an iconic/it bag. I need your help! Do vote and give me prons and cons on every option. I like roomy bags on the bigger side; I will usually carry my phone, keys, wallet, makeup pouch, pack of cigs, work badge, and a water bottle. And I don't want any patent. I like real leather better! So here's my options, feel free to comment after voting. Thanks!

    -Marc Jacobs Stam
    -Balenciaga City
    -Chanel Jumbo
    -YSL Downtown
  2. Out of your choices I prefer the YSL
  3. They are quite different in styles and prices. Among those four, I would choose Balenciaga City. I think it is more practical and can be carried in many occasions, like like Chanel Jumbo which is quite formal.
  4. Balenciaga! 2nd choice would be the Stam ;)
  5. i would go for the chanel jumbo..especially since chanel is always upping their prices. i also think it's the most classic out of your choices. good luck!
  6. I would go for the Balenciage...I just can't see putting a bottle of water into a structured bag like the Chanel! If you can leave the water out...I say go for the Chanel!
  7. Chanel all the way! And I agree with annemerrick about perhaps leaving the water bottle out?
  8. I voted for Chanel, because, well, it's Chanel!:tup:
  9. I'd have to go with the Chanel because no matter what, you honestly can't go wrong with a classic Chanel bag.

    Stam: hip and chic, but so many people have it these days and 99% of them are replicas! I don't think you'd exactly be using it around in 20 years!
    Balenciaga: a real "it" bag at the moment, I got one myself, but for me, it's something I'd carry for "throwing around". I love it and all, but it's probably also not something that I'd be carrying in 20 years.
    And with Downtown.. I'm not a fan of it, so I don't really know! I love the Muse though..
  10. Chanel all the way. It's classic and you'll always be glad you have it. I like the stam and the city but they're not as classic. Not a huge fan of the downtown either.
  11. It sounds to me Balenciaga City would be better for what you want to use it for. Chanel jumbo is a wonderful, iconic bag, but certainly not one you can throw around and put a water bottle inside!
  12. ITA with everything you said!!! I like the other bags you chose, and I even own a Balenciaga city myself. Chanel really is the most classic though. If you don't mind a bag that won't fit a water bottle, definitely go for the Chanel! The re-sale value is the best of all four brands, and it's a true classic that won't be "out" by next fashion season.

    Plus, once you go Chanel, you can never really go back to any other brand. Trust me, I know. :graucho:
  13. I voted for stam, I would get a metallic one! I think they are most unique, IMO!
  14. I would totally go for the Balenciaga's an IT bag with a touch of classic and is really cute and practical!!

    Good luck and let us know what you choose!
