Shes never owned a real handbag.

I cannot decide between these two bags. She has hinted that she likes these bags but has never dreamed of owning one. She is 18 and it is out of her budget. Was looking for some help in picking which one to get her.



or



She will be using it for an everyday thing or whatever.

Thanks for your help!

I like this one better myself, but I see it around a lot and think that the second is more unique and personal.

But the second might be a little more sophisticated for her look?

#1

And, you are super sweet to be buying her a bag :smile:

#1 and I totally agree with Melanie. You are too sweet! I vote #1 b/c the Carly is a classic and a good bag for everyday, but the patent still dresses it up a bit. You might want to check out the Coach subforum for opinions on those two too. ;)

She'll love either one! You're very sweet.

She's 18. Is she starting college this month? What else will she be carrying? College students carry a ton of books, so I'd go with the smaller of the two; however, I'm not afraid to contradict myself, and the more sophisticated look might be a nice start to the first year of study.

How sweet you are!

Definitely the first one--the second looks a little too sophisticated, KWIM? The first one is more casual, better for everyday. :biggrin:

Awww, your such a sweetheart. :yes: I would think it depends on whether she's a shoulder bag or handbag girl. Does she usually carry a handheld bag, or a shoulder bag?

I would go with #1 for someone in that age range (it seems a little more fun). You are so thoughtful to buy her a handbag - the gift of the Handbag always has special meaning, and shows a lot of thought and care on your part!:yes:
