Hi everyone, new poster here, looking for some good advice and i know this is the place to go! My parents are heading for a short trip to Chicago this weekend. Im from Toronto Canada and since our dollar is so strong right now, Im having them bring me home a handbag! Im looking for a functional everyday bag that I can use for both school and work. Nothing too heavy! I'm used to buying Diors but that habit got expensive and now I'm buying a car sooo cheaper is the way to go! I heard Cole Haan makes great quality bags at affordable prices, any testimonials to that?? The one I'm eyeing is the Cole Haan Zip Satchel from the Aerin collection, US $385.I'm looking at the Raisin colour, which looks perfect since its not the average black bag. http://www.colehaan.com/colehaan/catalog/product.jsp?productId=147498&categoryId=311825&productGroup=147644 what do you guys think?? opinions please! if there's anything else you can recommend within the $300-500 price range i would appreciate it. its good that my parents are going to chicago b/c I called the Cole Haan Toronto store and by buying it in the USA, I'm saving $111!
