Hi guys!! OKay, I searched for this topic, and I came up with a few threads that didn't get much response, so I was hoping that if I gave a bit of background, you could share your suggestions with me for what I could get my mom for her first designer bag!! Also, I would love to know what handbags your mom uses! This might give me some great ideas! OKay, here is some background: My momma is an adorable 60-ish lady, who lives in the northern mid-south/Midwest. She is retired, so the main function of her bag would be personal. She likes to carry a TON of stuff with her (I'm not even sure what it all is!), so she definately needs at least a medium to large bag. She has a small frame, so a bag as big as the Mandy however - would be too big/heavy for her. Target : Merona® 2-Pocket Shopper Handbag - Black The bag above is similiar, but not the same bag she is carrying currently. Last time I saw her bag, it was a red color, in a similiar look to the above, but more of a "hobo" shape - so that the double handles went into the body of the bag with no hinges, etc. I'm am open to suggestions... I have a Coach store & an outlet fairly close... Colors... she usually wears deep colors, like red, green, navy, etc or understated colors, like gray, taupe, mauve, etc. I'm open to any brand of handbag really, but I thought it would be adorable for her first "designer" bag to be the first brand I got into as well... Another option I thought of, is there is a Macy's by where she lives, so I could get something there (in case it really doesn't work for her, or I could take her and she could pick it out). WHEW... okay, alot of talking - hope this gives you a good idea, any suggestions? Thanks in advance!! I am flying to see her one week from tomorrow!
