Summer Bag- Need Suggestions

  1. Hi ladies, I've just started looking for a summer bag and I don't know where to begin. I want something that will be durable and can also be used as a schoolbag after summer ends, and most likely a tote. I was thinking of maybe getting another Longchamp tote, but with long handles this time so I can wear it on my shoulder. A friend suggested Le Sportsac or Lacoste totes, but I'm not sure where to find either of these in Taiwan. Please post your suggestions, and pictures if you have them :yes:
  2. Hi littlepanda, what's your budget?
  3. I would like the bag to be under $100 (USD)
  4. OK, what do you think of a tote like this? This lady is Japanese-born and lives in the US now. She has shipped to countries overseas. I came across her brilliant site a few days ago, I swear I'm not related to her at all :biggrin: I just think she makes very pretty bags.
