Nay, it looks cheap

themightsloane, i think you should go with the michael by michael kors bag or the bag snob for dkny.

i dont like the Patent Maisy Bag by Paul's Boutique. the asos pink one is OK, but could show scratches soon.

H&KM has knocked off the cambridge satchel company bags, fyi. in fact their version is on the cover for the new H&M magazine.

dkny is the best one.

i'd say the 2nd one is marginally better.

are you sure you have clothes to match the brown bag however?

i cant use brown bags because most of my outerwear is black.

Hi guys, I want to get a nice graduation gift for myself and decided to get a designer bag. I never buy designer bags, so if I do, I want it to be quite classic and last me a while. I'm between Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 Damier Ebene and Mulberry Bayswater. I actually like the Speedy bit better, but part of me is hesitant as there are so many fakes out there and too many WAGs, trashy celebs, etc wear them as well. My own style is very simple & "Scandinavian" and would not style it the way they do, but still... I like Bayswater as well, but not as much as I like the Speedy. Also, it is more expensive and I know if I got an everyday bag, it would not last as long. At the same time, I can't fit my laptop to the Speedy, while Bayswater is an ideal day-to-day bag.

On another hand, maybe I shouldn't waste so much money on these bags and, instead, get something like a Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier, however, it is not as classic and probably not as good quality...

Sorry for rambling, but I thought I should ask advice! Which one do you recommend, why? Or some other bag?

I would always nay the speedy because it is far too common looking, and I just do not like the "classic" LV colour schemes in any case. The Bayswater is a much nicer looking bag imo and you can get it in different colours, finishes and leathers.

That said... You should go with whatever bag you prefer and you do say you like the Speedy better. If you are spending a lot of money you want to be 100% sure and it's nice to treat yourself

Hmm Bayswater IS nice, but it costs almost 300 euros more than speedy (and only the most common colours/leather, others are way more). What about Neverfull MM? I'm so torn... afraid to spend so much money...

Based on your thoughts and my taste I would definitely get the Bayswater. I hate the LV Speedy though, because of everything you mentioned.
I have a Mulberry (Alexa) bag for two years now, wearing it (almost) every day and it's basically like new, in case you are questioning it's quality.

^ if you are that afraid then I would say to wait. Save your money and when the right bag comes along you will know because you will have to have it, no doubts!

Don't settle for a MBMJ bag though (well some people like them but I had one and the quality was not good and I don't find them very special), I would always suggest putting money towards something you'll love for a long time and it will make you happy when you look at it, not make you think about how much it cost.

of the choices you put up I'd say the Mulberry but like hautechild said wait till you find something your heart really gets excited for
