  1. I can't afford a new Balenciaga yet, but I do need a new spring purse. Any suggestions? I'm willing to spend around $200. Would appreciate it!
     
  2. Hi annabella, what style of bag do you like? Any favourite colours?

    I just posted about this cute Tignanello in another thread (suggest you check out the 200 reviews) :biggrin:

  3. Oh what great bags. LOVE the E/W Double Pocket and then the Sexbomb musthaveit Bag. They are driving me crazy with all the new bags. I want them all!
     
  4. Get Lucky! :biggrin: I think these slouchy Lucky Brand handbags on Zappos look great but has anyone here bought them and can comment on the quality of the leather or suede, please? Thanks.

  7. Hi there...

    I suggest Coach or Dooney & Bourke. For Coach, you can find smaller bags for under $200, but I don't know what size of bag you are looking for.
    I know a lot of people don't care for Dooney & Bourke because of the logos, but they have some nice very cute all-weather leather bags also under $200.

    HTH!!

  8. What about this Elliot Lucca bag for $128. It comes in white. I found it on Bloomingdale's website.

  9. That bag looks lovely, Kat. I think you mentioned Donald J Pliner a couple of times - their bags look attractive (although out of the $200 price range). Hardly see them mentioned here, though - any idea why?
     
  10. Oooh, I like that one!! I found some cute ones at smartbargains.com
