    Default Please Help me find a new bag!!

    Hi ladies,

    I just got a bonus through work and I want to buy a new bag. Can't spend a huge amount - around $1000. Yes, I know not much which is why I need your help to make the best purchasing decision.

    I want something pretty classic nothing too out there. Maybe a LV, chloe or a Marc Jacobs?

    I like the look of totes the most, prefer leather but at that price, don't like my chances!!!

    They have to be available in Australia or at least ship to Australia.

    Can't you help??

    If you like you can take a look at the LV Neverfull totes. they come in 3 different sizes and they are all under the $1000 price range even after the price increase which comes in effect tomorrow.

    Yes, I was just looking at those - so far it is my top pick, but just wanted to see if there's anything else out there that's similar.

    What do you think??

    Welcome to the forum! And congrats on your bonus.

    I would pick an LV as they are classics. Another bag which is within your budget would be the Batignolles. I like the Batignolles horizontal. It is large enough as a tote but nice size as an everyday bag. I personally prefer the Damier line. If you could save a little but more, there's the hampstead which is gorgeous.

    I think a $1000 budget is very nice!! I have the LV Neverfull MM and I love it!:wub: Have you looked at any Marc by Marc Jacobs? The leather on the MbMJ bags is so soft and buttery and the price tag is not bad at all! Have you checked out any of the NYC indy designers like Foley + Corinna or Rebecca Minkoff?? Luna Boston is a great site to browse.

    Welcome to the forum! HTH!

    Ooh, I like the Batignolles bag - v-nice!! My absolute favourite is the Mahina in white - absolutely stunning but so out of my price range!

    And yes, I am loving the Marc Jacobs bags - they are lovely too!
    I would guess that LV is more of a classic, but then MJ I could probably get a leather bag... Decisions decisions!! Will just have to go check them out in the flesh and see which ones I like more.... How easy is it to keep the LV bags clean and in good condition??

    I'll have to check out the other US designers as I am not familiar with them...

    Thanks for the welcome!!

    I just discovered this site and I think it will be very bad for my handbag addiction - last thing I need is encouragement!!

    LV mono canvas bags are very easy to keep clean. I love the Neverfull and because it doesn't have a lot of leather it will be really easy to keep clean! The Montorgueil bags are also nice. I own a GM and I love it. They will still be under $1000, even after the price increase. A speedy in mono or damier is also an excellent choice!! Let us know what you decide on.

    to tBF!

    I'm from Australia too and bags here are a bit more expensive than US, the mono neverfull MM or GM is under $1000 so thats spot on for you... the mono canvas is easy to keep clean.... I love mine you just wipe it off and tadah!!! (I'm planning on getting a neverfull as well sometime this or next year to use as nappy bag) also, check out bluefly.com or revolveclothing.com, they ship to Australia and have nice bags under $1000... hth!

    1000 is a huge budget lol! I'd get an LV.. since you said you want something classic.. It'll never go out of style and if you decide you hate it down the road, they keep their value!

    I agree, $1000 is no small amount. There are too many styles and too many colors and too many sizes... Can you narrow it down to either a shape, color, type of leather, handheld, tote, hobo, etc.?

    Hi there. I am also from Australia, and went to David Jones yesterday to look at bags. And yes, they are way more expensive here than the US. I suggest buying online. Try shopbop.com or eluxury.com. You'll find some great bags there.
