Hello Ladies! I'm looking to get myself a semi-casual bag for every day use and that'll last me a good number of years without coming apart or looking too scruffy. I'm pretty gentle with my bags and don't overload them - and I figured that leather would most likely be the best bet. I've been searching the forums and so far I've found great reviews for Dooney & Bourke, Stone Mountain, Fossil and vintage Coach.. but I'm having trouble finding something that suits my style and looks semi-modern - whilst high-end brands are out of my reach. Do you have any recommendations for other brands? Or have you had bags made out of any other material that has lasted? I'm on a tight budget so am regularly scouring eBay & etsy for a good deal but am willing to check out other brands.. I saw a cute Nine West but I've read some bad reviews on their non-leather bags and am not sure if I want to "risk" it (am aiming for this to be my last bag purchase for awhile... a sort of "pre-ban" buy *grin*) not to mention a REALLY cute blue Tommy Hilfiger & another Ralph Lauren satchel - but they both weren't fully leather and I wasn't sure if it'd last.. plus, since solid colors are generally more versatile, my practical side won out. But seriously.. how cute are they? And here is the Nine West that I wasn't sure would last :/ Please also recommend other sites that you may know of. Thank you!!
