    Default Advice needed for gift for girlfriend

    Hi folks,

    I bought my girlfriend the LV Aquarelle Speedy for the Summer season a little while ago.

    Now that its fall, she has decided that she can no longer be caught dead with it and wants something new.

    She also complained when I got her the Speedy cause it wasn't the snake skin one (the Tivoli?) and told me I didn't love her enough cause the Speedy was the "el cheapo" bag.

    So I'm looking for advice on what's not an "el cheapo" bag to get her for the fall season.

    I'm in Hong Kong, so I can get pretty much anything here--worst case I can fly to Japan or Guam or Hawaii for a weekend to get something if I can't get it here.

    Thanks in Advance!

    I did! She said "you should know what I need! If you don't take the time to do the research you must not love me!"

    Sigh, women...you try to do the right thing by them....but they don't make it easy.

    hm... the snake skin one wasn't tivoli, it should be the man crazy or the watercolor papillon frame or the winter collection monogram suede embossed

    i think she might likes something new on the seasonal collection
    why don't you call LV store in HK and get your name on waiting list
    i think she just want something no-one-has-it-yet bag or something expensive

    good luck

    Yup, that's exactly it! The no-one-has-yet bag...I just don't know what that is however. Electronic gadget, fine. I'm in my depth, but bags!? Lord help me! :)

    I got her a birkin a couple of months ago, but that's apparently passe so she doesn't use it anymore.

    she sure lucky.

    i think you just print those bag images out, let her picks, call LV store to reserve one or put your name on waiting list, and when the bag is here, take her to the store

    of course, if you do this in front of her, she might likes it

    i think that's just her way of asking a bag from you, but if you go wrong, then she can get another one... LOL

    anyway, hope this helps.

    Sounds like you need a new girlfriend. Not advice on which bag to get.

    She sounds a little ungrateful, but I agree with everyone else to get on the waiting list at LV or maybe even another store she likes and get her something new and exciting.

    If she thinks the Birkin is passe then IMO you need a new girlfriend.
    It's ridiculous to expect someone to "just know" what you want.
    I've been with my DH for almost 13 years and this is the very first year he has purchased a "girly" item without asking me for any ideas...and even then he got really nervous and showed a pic of it to me before it arrived just to make sure I wouldn't hate it.

    hahaha, you girls are so mean!

    She's a special girl and deserves the best and only the best. That's why she threw out the birkin--she saw another girl in her entourage that had one and so she figured if they were so inexpensive that someone can have one, then she would lose face carrying one too!

    well, if you think she's special, more power to ya...

    can't believe someone would throw out a Birkin or even a beautiful LV Watercolore but that's her prerogative... we're not all so lucky

    Well they were released last season!

    Here in HK girls often say that they can't be seen using a bag that's more than one season old--otherwise they look like their boyfriend isn't well off enough to afford to buy them a new bag.

    FYI, my last GF had an expectation of an allowance from me to cover buying at least one new bag a month, so this one is actually quite humble by Hong Kong standards.

    this is why i'm so not traditional Chinese............. i don't think i could ever survive in HK! i'm Mandarin speaking anyway. and not wealthy so that's an automatic no.

    ... but i guess if that's the way people roll over there, it's nice that you are thinking about her. i really don't have a good suggestion though because it sounds like she can't be pleased.

    well, alphaboi, then i think most of the girls here are angels to every guy in HK
    we work and save hard to get bags on our own, that's why we can't agree with your gf's standard.

    anyway, as long as you live well with it, what can we say?
