what is your opinion of a good everyday chanel bag?
I've got a Grand Shopping Tote, which I think is a great everyday bag. I also think a Jumbo Classic Flap would be nice too.
what are your needs?
Big, medium or small bag?
Shoulder or arm/handbag?
Are you pretty easy on them or do you need a really durable one?
I thinkthe shopping totes will be great. The flaps are awesome, but totes are easier to access and could more easily be placed on the floor or on a counter.
medium size shoulder/handheld bag. I need something durable and practical. Something roomy and not too heavy. I was thinking about the reporter bag but the straps really worries me. Has anyone had a problem with the straps breaking off?
No, the straps should not be breaking off! The Reporter is a good choice, or anything in caviar as it's more durable even than the calfskin.
I would say either the Grande shopping tote in caviar or the large cambon bucket tote. THe reporter is definitely not heavy and the straps are durable. I have one and I think it is great but I use the GST EVERYDAY.
can someone post a pix of a GST?
here's 2, but check out our Reference Library, it's FULL of photos as well as sizes, colors, prices, etc. . . .
^^I love the cambon bags (either reporter or large tote for an everyday bag). I also love the square vintage ligne tote but it is more of a fall winter bag vs year round.
