You ladies have been so helpful with other TPFers' requests, I was hoping you could help me choose the perfect everyday (work/play, day/night) bag. I carry a lot of stuff. No matter how many new bags I purchase, I still end up grabbing for my Coach Hamptons Weekender tote as an everyday bag (or, as my one friend calls it, "the luggage.") It's starting to fall apart, and I hate that the zipper doesn't completely close the bag. I'm looking to replace it with something just as roomy, but with a nice top zipper. I want it to hold what I consider to be the "essentials": wallet, keys, cell phone, agenda, cosmetic case, umbrella, pen, work ID, water bottle, sunglasses, snacks. I prefer black, but I have no preference as to fabric/leather/etc, as long as it's durable. I don't want to spend more than ~$2000, because it's going to take a beating if I use it almost every day. Some ones I've considered/purchased: Chanel GST (no top zipper) Chloe Large Paddington (possibly too heavy) Kale XL Utility Carryall Burberry Harris Linden Tote (too structured, great for going into court, but not as an everyday bag) Gucci Abbey Medium Tote (too small) I'd really love your suggestions! Thanks!
