Hey Payal and Pri,
I saw the post about the Letters section in your blog and decided to ask you guys something I’ve been trying to find for long.
First query –
I live in the US, but will be moving to India soon. I’ve never really gotten any designer bags, but am thinking of getting one. Nothing too high end, but rather in the budget range of max 300 or around.. I really like hobo bags, but recently started liking the shoulder totes as well.
I really want to get something that will last me long (won’t go out of fashion very fast), and will appeal to Indian surroundings as well.
I really don’t like the two strap types, would rather have a single strap – makes it easier to balance on the shoulder.
Second query –
I’ve also been looking for something that looks like this, but can’t find them anywhere! can you tell me what this style is called, your opinion on it and where can I find some nice models in this, without being too expensive?
Thank you so much guys!
From the choices that you sent us, we loved the first one, the Michael Kors “Brookeville” Shoulder Tote.
If you are still not sold on the Kors (specially with the coming sale), here are two suggestions that will fit right in your budget. The Coach and the Dooney are both under $300 and are simple and elegant. The Coach also comes in a black in case you were worried about the cream.
Being the bag fanatics that we are, we couldn’t resist the temptation to go a little beyond. We found two bags that although are a little above your budget, would be fantastic additions to your closet!
Regarding your second question, there is no specific name for the double handle hobo as such. It all depends on a particular bag’s style and we did find one thats really nice and thats on sale at Kate Spade for $263, which is quite a steal!
Buy the Carla via Kate Spade
Let us know what your final choice is to be!
