    Default Moving On: What to buy after Coach

    I've got a few hundred saved from Christmas money, and might be able to add a few more come tax refund time. So I'm wondering what I should branch into next. I'd like to be able to use it spring/summer, but don't necessarily need a spring/summer color, if you know what I mean. I want it to be useful more than just this year.

    I really like the RM Nikki, but am I willing to spend $600 on a "trendy" color when it's only the third designer bag I'll own?

    I'm mostly a shoulder bag type of girl, and I don't know that I could afford a VF shoulder bag. I should say, I probably shouldn't afford one. And it's one thing to wear a luxury bag that you already own, but to buy one that's obviously high end in this economy? I wouldn't feel guilty, since it is my money, but I'm afraid I'd feel conspicuous.

    What would you go for if your entire collection was a Coach Carly and a Coach leather book tote?

    If you really like the RM Nikki you could find one on ebay for a lot less than retail. As far as not wanting a trendy color have you thought about a neutral color like black, gray, or brown?
    What designer's are you interested in adding to your collection? Are you against pre-loved bags?

    ^I agree with ZG. I would try to score a new Nikki on eBay. There are a TON of new bags on eBay & ecrater.

    For the color, I'd choose something black.

    Oh, I'm not against pre-owned at all. But I am a bit leery after all the ebay horror stories . . .

    My leather book tote is black, so maybe brown if I'm trying for something that's still kind of neutral.

    I'd still like something kind of springy, but I am afraid of white. Just not sure if I want to try the new "it" color.

    Well, if you do buy off of eBay...you ARE the buyer, lol. eBay favors buyers now.

    Here are some Nikki's on ecrater:

    What about gray?

    Aw I think the girls have some good advice for you!

    I was going to say an LV Speedy, but you want a shoulder bag so that wouldn't work. LV is classic and would always be in style, but I guess that would be something you would have to think about, too.

    I'm not completely opposed to a handbag rather than a shoulder bag, but it makes me a little nervous to spend that much on one when I'm not used to carrying one.

    I'd have to think about it some more. :)

    I've looked at gray--it's a maybe. Not a color I'd thought of before.

    ZG + Jess are right, the nikki is a great bag and you can find a last season's color for a great deal. Also if you plan on waiting until after your tax refund, I'm sure there will be some RM sample sales going on.


    What are some other designers you like?

    Well, I like the F+C Mid City, and some of their other stuff.
    I loved the Kooba Elisha? but don't care for most of the rest. Some are ok.
    I like to look at MbMJ.
    RM of course.

    I'm also going to check out the gilt.com sale tomorrow. Although if the web service is as "good" as it was today . . . I'm not counting on getting on very quickly. Might find something I can get now, and then something else at tax refund time. Woohoo!

    Treesje Marseille Hobo at LB.

    It's a final sale, so I couldn't change my mind if I wanted to . . .

    That Boston is a great color, sorta in the neutral range but with a kick, you know?
    How fun to be thinking about your next bag, isn't it?
