Please give me some advice

  1. Hi everybody. I am so glad to find this forum.

    I just got a finance job and have to visit clients pretty often. I need a new bag. My friends suggested LV Passy GM to me. It looks very nice but I would like to have more options. Please give me some advice. Below are my requirements.
    - <$2,000
    - classsic
    - low keyed
    - big enough for a laptop and letter sized documents

    Many thanks.:heart: :heart: :heart:
     
  2. I always suggest the same designer, it seems...I would suggest a custom Jennifer Marvin www.jennifermarvin.com (the website is a little empty, but you can find the contact information there) and get something no one else will have which is perfectly suited to your needs...with Hermes leathers and the best craftsmanship in France (she uses a Chanel Atilier), you can't go wrong and can keep it for your entire career...and, I think you can come in under 2K depending on your requirements...=)
     
  3. Welcome, Castile. I've read a few posts from posters who've used the YSL Muse as their laptop bag - it looks great. :biggrin:
     
  4. Castile, I use a Mulberry Bayswater as a work bag and it fits papers and a small laptop. Its also made from very sturdy leather and will last you a long time.
     
  5. YSL Muse in XL

  6. Well I don't know how big your laptop is, you may want a separate laptop case. Mine is tiny and actually fits in many of my purses - its too small for a regular case. As for purses I would go with Chanel, even if its a little more. Its classic and recognizable - the Muse isn't as easily identifiable.
     
  7. Bag.lover, thanks for the useful info on promotional code for the Muse (even though I won't be using it). Not the first time you've given such useful information btw ...

    Anyone bought a David & Scotti before?

    I like the look of this:

  8. Thank you so much for your suggestions. This is such a nice and friendly community.:heart:

    I will choose among your suggestions. The good news is my mom is going to Milan and Paris next week. I think she can get a better deal there. :biggrin:
     
  9. Maybe the chloe Edith in the large size would be just what you are looking for, its a great looking bag but easily would fit a laptop :smile:

    This is a picture of my medium sized one, but the larger one would be just perfect for your needs.
     
  10. Milan & Paris? Well, Castile, your mum will definitely be able to find something great there! :biggrin:

    In case there are people out there looking for cheaper work options (way under $2,000), how about this Almas bag?

  11. Thank you all for your suggestions. :heart:

    I finally decided to get a LV Kasbek PM for my new job. Thank you Fopduck. This is exactly what I am looking for. I think Passy is too "LV" to carry to wrok.

    Alexandrainparis, I will pass Ms. Marvin-Letourneux's phone number to my friends who want something unusual.
     
  12. That is a very nice choice, Castile.
