$2000 is an excellent budget for Chanel! I would suggest a quilted tote... I recommend my own bag left and right, it's just so perfect. With tax I paid around $1200 for mine. Cristina also has a really perfect everyday Chanel tote, maybe she can post it for you -- although I think hers might be *slightly* above $2000.

This is the bag I use daily:

I'll second that tote suggestion! ;)

I have both a red caviar and lambskin shoulder totes and they work better for me than a classic Chanel flap bag. I do love those too though. The gray tote is what I'm carrying right now.

I have the caviar tote in black, here is a photo.

It is a great everyday bag, very comfortable on the shoulder. It comes in black, beige, pink and white. It was less than $2k :nuts: It's a fabulous, functional bag. It has an open interior patch pocket, zipped interior pocket and outside back pocket. Definitely worth the money, in my opinion!
