My daughter is 23 and works in fashion and has great taste in bags. For the summer I bought her a bright red patent YSl medium bag, and it makes so much more of a statement than all the Chanels this season. Her birthday is coming up and I got her a beautiful large Valentino tote in soft black leather with leather flowers. The quality is great and it's DIFFERENT. It was not cheap but for the quality, uniqueness, and look I would take it over a Chanel.
