If you had up to $700 on a bag to spend what would you get?

I need help picking out a bag that DH "MIGHT" get me for my b-day.

Originally I thought I wanted an LV Neverfull, but I hate that it doesn't have zipper. I don't like Speedys.

I saw the Gucci D-Gold this weekend and that's nice too....

Maybe a Kooba? Botkier?

Please post pics!! $700 tops.

No Coach bags please - I am using one now as my everyday bag.

TIA!!

A lot of the Botkiers are gorgeous, and many of them are under $1,000.

I also love Miu Miu bags, but they are usually at least $1,200.

I love my Gucci bag, but after awhile the fabric starts to rip. I hate that about fabric bags. I would spend alittle more and get this one.
It is $790.

Love the idea, but don't forget the American dollar isn't worth much there... once you do the exchange it's soooo much more $$$. Cheaper to buy here. DH and I went to Italy in April and I think for one euro it's exchange was $1.80. I think it got worse. I did splurdge and got a prada wallet... $$$$$$

I was going to post the Marc by Marc Jacobs idea too...at the Bloomingdales at Roosevelt Field they had a nice selection. Actually the one in Soho had some gorgeous bags.
You can get something great for $700 or less. Probably can get a bag & wallet.

How about getting 2 or 3 bags for that amount of money.

saks already is doing presale for thursday on all designer bags.

It's 40% off retail then take another 50% off that price. A $1500 bag for $450...yes that's what's going on over there.

I was there Friday and people were carrying around 15-20 bags each.

Worth a look if you are into Prada, Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Gucci, Zac Posen, Botkier, YSL, etc.
