Is it for you or a loved one ?

Hit Amazon, look for handbags and check the review ratings for handbags, also look at what your partner currently carries to make sure you buy here something in - roughly - her style. Take pics of her bag and go to dedicated handbag shops, show the assistants your pics and they will be more than willing to offer advise.

If all else fails give her £200 and say 'here, get yourself a new handbag, I'm clueless'.

read op's post, it's for his wife. So technically it may not be for a 'loved one'.

Don't be daft - get her involved in the choice.

Spending £200 on the 'wrong' one is too high a risk for me.

Oh yeah didn't notice that .. Best off finding what she likes , not sure rocking up and buying a nice looking £200 bag is a recipe for success.

I am looking at some on House Of Fraser . Some look like the ones she has now , but they don't seem to have any inside pocket things. I know that hers have inside pockets because once in a while I have had the nightmare of trying to find something in it.

Also who is this Micheal Kors and why his bags so expensive ?.

Yes read rest of post, also try to be more grateful *washes hands of OP and his lack of handbag skills/common sense*

Are Micheal Kors and Vivienne Westwood like DKNY , Ralph Lauren or Armani ? . I have heard of the latter , have no idea who Viv or Mike are ?. Will she know them ?.

Original Poster

DKNY are Dolce and Gabana right ?.

My partner wanted a Mulberry until one day sat on the train every chav had a snide mulberry . Same now applies to Michael Kors .. £10 snides bought on holiday , everywhere. Good luck with your quest thankless task ahead .

Seriously who are these people and why are there bags so expensive ? and whose do I buy ?

MK are " IN" and they do have outlet stores dotted around , one in York outlet, about half price .

Mod & Ed

Zalando have a great range of women's premium bags HERE & some with higher discounts HERE

Depends what style of bag she wants, but you won't go far wrong with Michael Kors, DKNY, Reiss, Karl Lagerfeld, Just Cavalli, Ralph Lauren, Lulu Guinness

Why are iPhones so expensive , and Ralph Lauren polo shirts , and Hugo boss jeans , and Paul Smith clobber .. All about the brand image .

Does she want large , medium , small , everyday or going out ? . Open top or zip and then what colour ?Jeez .. Go ask her , will avoid serious strife. I have been handbag shopping with partner and even she couldn't pick one .. Dodgy colours , wrong shape , no inner zip , strap not long enough , or too long .. Gawd.

Her bags seem small but they are always filled with lots of **** . They are like a magic box .

Look at the makes she has so far and colours and size .. Going in blind is a recipe for disaster

is this okay ?.

It looks like the kind of bag she uses but , the woman in the picture does not seem to happy by it . She is kind of looking away from it and she does not have a happy face.

Original Poster

She also has very veiny hands . She probably looks that miserable because she has never tried the sublime delight that is a Big Mac.

No offence OP, but you seem utterly clueless and lost here (I would be too in all fairness). I think that you should take the advice of mas99 in post #5 and plodging in post #21 and get some input from your other half.

missleading

Which celebrity's style does she copy? What are her favourite brands? … Which celebrity's style does she copy? What are her favourite brands? And colours that she wears?



I dont know . I tend not to pay to much attention . I know most of the bags are black and she tends to dress in darker shades of colour .

What is Guess ?

I looked up guess and now I am being given dirty looks by some albino kid , WTF ?.

Guess is a USA brand .. Seriously ask her to choose

Women like quality style but more importantly on this type of gift something it goes with

Take photos of 3 or 4 items of clothes that your partner loves (jackets/dress etc) and take those with you to somewhere like Debenhams - have a quick look around, start sweating profusely then crying, panicking and fall to your knees until the shop assistant stops nattering to her bff on her mobile or puts down her nail file (depending on the age of the assistant and explain your circumstances.

Most likely they'll have "womans intuition" and find you something worthy of a gift with the option of an easy refund
