Maybe it's because I've been concentrating so much on what to buy for others for the last 2 months, but I am in a major Bag Funk! It's like I don't know where to even start looking for something that I'll like. Or the things that I do run across are just kinda so-so. My birthday is in a few weeks and I want to pick out something that I will love and get lots of use out of. And around this time of year, and right after Christmas I know there will be tons of sales. So here is what I hope you ladies can give me some suggestions on.... I have lots of slouchy, so I was looking for something a little dressier, structured, more for work and evenings out. (P.S. I just got a new job too, so it will be a celebration for both - Yeah!!!) It has to be something I can carry on the shoulder. I don't like very small bags, but nothing giganormous either. Some type of outside pocket or organization is good as well as a nice lining. I guess the color I'm mostly looking for is a beautiful brown, bronze or blonde leather, any shade but very useable. If you run across a dark red or rust, that would work too. I'm not opposed to any brands either. Oh, and I was hoping to keep @ 500$ or under but for something fantastic, I could sweet talk the boyfriend (his poor wallet after Christmas)! Thanks in advance!!!
