So I am going to start saving for a purse and would like to purchase it in the beginning if Jan. (my parents do NOT support my love for bags, so I am going to have to save my work, xmas and birthday money), but there are so many wonderful ones out there right now. I would like to to be under $600 and if at all possible be able to carry a small book, my phone, etc. I was thinking maybe the new rebecca minkoff MA bag with the basket weave. but if any of you wonderful purse lovers have any better suggestions please let me know! thanks!
