    I'm looking for a small handbag, something that's smaller than 8"x11", (20 cmx28 cm methinks), my budget is < $700. Something that's classy, simple, & chic and will last through a few seasons and trends. So far I do not like: Fendi mini Chefs, Chanel Ligne Cambon Pochette, no LVs, no Prada nylon hobos, nothing too logo-y. I'm sooo picky :cry:

    here's a Gucci I sort of like, but not sure about the bamboo chain.

    Please help me, thank you!

    I really like that Gucci bag of your choice. It's very classy and timeless, nothing you could carry no longer than a season.
    I'd give it a go if you can afford it :flower:

    Chanel Ligne Cambon! If I had the money I would definately invest it in a pouchette. Chanel is always classic and I've seen the bags in person and they are definately cute

    whoa read that wrong. I thought you said you liked the Fendi mini chefs, Ligne Cambon, and didn't like LV and Gucci. Sorry! I still like the cambon pouchette though... :innocent: :woot:

    $700, ay? I think you'll go a long way with that.... ;)

    Try Rafe, a quite unknown label, but big on NY-ers.
    $360 each

    Probably a Bottega Veneta? Where you're money will go a long way since it's known for TOP quality.
    $480

    A J&M Davidson?
    $314

    :heart: -BV, Dior Deco & Chloe. I really don't like the Gucci. I thought that you didn't want a logo? It looks like the kind of bag that is knocked off frequently. I have a bag w/the "g" fabric, but it's a monsterous hobo. I like the tackiness of it, but it doesn't sound like yo are going for a ghetto-fab look.

    Thanks so much for everyone's suggestions! I :heart: the Bottega Veneta ( now why didn't I think of it first) Now the question is what color :doh: White looks so much better than black, but I'll prolly be cleaning it obsessively ( do they give you free leather cleaner at BV?)

    I like the Chloe & Deco Dior too but not sure I could carry them off as day bags. Think I'll still keep the Gucci as one of my choices tho' the bamboo strap still looks a bit too kitsch.

    I'd like a Chanel pochette, but just not the ligne cambon, the huge CCs are not really my style, to each her/his own I spose. :flower:
