someone recommended the abbesses and there's talk of prada somewhere up there in the mix...tumi's a steal since both of those are in the high five hundreds

...The Abbesses is $900

So not worth it, imo.

I'd rather have a LV keepall! They're $700-850 and are so humongous.

I like this one too. I wonder if they have one in black... *logs on to Adidas website*

Yeah, I don't think I'll be carrying an LV to college. I would eirther: trash it, lost it, mess it up, tear it apart, allow it to get stolen, etc, etc You get the picture

yeah- but you could use an abbeses every day, how often are you going to walk around with a huge duffle bag? I used to have the abbeses, have since sold it and gotten the Damier Bastille which is the same bag but in damier. For school, honestly, if you can afford it, it really is a good option.

Well, I personally carry around a LOT of stuff for school, so I am considering getting the duffle in the smallest size... it's practical for me at least!

I'd go for a LV Abesses. The bag is SOOO amazing! :w00t: I ordered it yesterday!
Unless you want to be the butt of all jokes around campus, I don't think an LV bag is exactly a very wise choice. She's attending a college, not the annual gathering of the fashion victims union.

A structured, thick messenger like the Absesses would also look particularly awkward on anyone with a petite figure. Actually it looks just plain awkward on ANYONE.

The Addidas bag is actually surprisingly nice - I'd get it if it wasn't that expensive. Since when did Addidas start charging $240 for a bag? It better be very well made and a far cry from the cheapo nylon duffles you'd usually associate with the brand.

For that money she'd be much better off with a classic Prada nylon messenger. V158, V165, V166 are all unisex styles that are versatile, practical, and chic.

Orochian is right. I just finished university myself and LV bags were frowned upon at my school. Maybe at a preppier university you can get away with it, but at most schools you might come accross as being pretentious for carrying a logoed bag that large. Unless you join a sorority you might scare of a lot of potential friends. University is the opposite of high school, you don't want to look like you've got money.

I'm quite disappointed with Adidas' rise in prices too. They went from being one of the cheaper sports companies to one of the most expensive. I'm still going to wear the stuff I have now but I doubt I'd by any more at these prices.

That messenger bag is actually a very decent deal, especially after a $240 Adidas one!

Well, it's still not exactly a lightweight price for a student. I'd like it more if it didn't have the gigantic logo plastered on the front.

And I agree, banana, conspicuousness is very much frowned upon in a place that thrives on intellectual development. I went to a University where students with hugely expensive cars are a dime a dozen, but still there was an unspoken code of conduct when it comes to appropriate dressing.
