OK, before anyone screams FOUL! Let me explain..... I want to buy my mom a nice designer bag for Xmas, but I don't have the budget to spend more than $200. I've been looking and trying to come up with the best bag for her and was pretty decided on getting her the Hayden Harnett Barnard Cross Body in Black (from the sample sale $169). I started thinking about her taste in bags, and I realized that she has always loved my 1st Season Marc Jacobs Sophia that I own in grape. I've had that bag for years and whenever I carry it, she tells me how much she loves it. The leather's so soft and she loves the buckles on the front. Then it hit me..... I own a 1st Season Sophia in Black that I've NEVER used. I got it from eBay about 2 years ago and it's sat in my closet the entire time. The bag looks brand new - there's not a mark on it. Unfortunately, I don't have any tags for the bag but I do have a sleeper. I tried to sell it a while back but had no luck, so it's just been sitting in storage in its sleeper. Last year I bought my daughter a previously carried Balenciaga (for Xmas) and she loved it. Of course, that was my 18 yr daughter who knows how much these bags cost and was just happy to own ANY Balenciaga!! I just don't know if it's tacky to give the Black Sophia to my mom. Of course, I would buy her something else to go with it - Maybe a nice wallet and perfume she likes (She likes SJP's Lovely but never spends $$ on things like that!). Maybe I'll even get her an LV wallet and/or planner to use inside the bag. What do you guys think? Should I give her the MJ along with a few smaller new things, or just get her the HH Barnard?
