My mother-in-law is looking for an everyday bag ... it has to be leather, with many pockets, big and roomy, light weight (this is important), and has a nice shape ... bare in mind she is over 50 so something classy and elegant ...
any recommendations????

Hi! I think it depends on your price range and/or whether or not this person cares about carrying a "designer" bag. I think in general, Coach has some really nice "classic" bags that are roomy and has lots of storage space. The sales people in there are usually pretty nice and helpful. Also, Cole Haan has some really nice bags this season. The first 2 pictures are from Cole Haan, and the other 3 from Coach.

I love the second Cole Haan. I am thinking of getting for myself, the leather is very soft and it is roomy. The style is a little different, too.

I think Tod's for an older woman would be very nice:biggrin:. Not sure I like the LV pictured, the Dior looks like its for someone really young, and the other two are kind of just bleh. I'm sure she'll love it no matter what you decide :biggrin:

btw, not sure if its on sale on the website, but the Tod's is on sale @ NM right now for the designer pre-sale. I think it may also be on sale on elux, not sure if its exactly the same price on each though. I couldn't believe those went on sale!

I bought that Cole Haan "lunch tote" but returned it. I was uncomfortable with how open it is at the top. If the bag tips over, your stuff falls out. Too bad, it's a really beautiful bag.
