to carry while saving up for my LV Cabas Piano.:biggrin: I also wanted something that was a little unique, but not over the top. I saw this on Bluefly. I've never bought Via Spiga before. Is the quality nice? Also, what do you ladies think?

On the world...
I have Via Spiga shoes that have amazing leather and hold up very well.
Why don't you look at Cole Haan they also have good bags for good prices. I am just not crazy about the middle section of this bag it looks kinda 70's. But I always say that if it goes with your style and your budget and you dig it...that is what matters.
Good luck and let us know what you do :smile:

I only have Via Spiga shoes, they are nice and well made. I don't like the mid-section of the bag you posted, I tend to like simple bags. If you would consider other brands, how about Banana Republic, Monsac, or Furla? Good luck.

BUTTERY - what type of tote? For school, work? Zipper or open top? Conservative/traditional or playful? Shoulder or hand carry? Price range?

I'm not crazy about the mid section, either. I just love the shape and color. I was going to check Banana republic, but I kept hearing about color transfer onto clothing, so I passed. But they look great. I love Monsac...just couldn't find a shape that I liked. I'll definitely check Furla; I've had good luck with that brand. Thanks so much for your help.

I want something casual, but not too playful. Casual enough to wear with jeans, nice looking enough to wear with a skirt. I'd use it while shopping, going to the park with 2-year-old... Definitely a zipper on top. I don't want to go over $300.00 if possible. Thanks so much!
