Not a holy grail bag, just a question! In the market for a camera bag or larger WOC, my price range is between $1000-$2000. I'd been looking at YSL's Lou, but I saw the Becky and like how the quilted lambskin is different from the typical matelasse. However it's fairly new and I haven't been able to find many reviews or opinions on it. Not sure if it has 'staying power' or if it feels like a Chanel wannabe.

(Becky camera bag vs woc vs Lou)

When I ask about a camera bag Gucci's Soho Disco and Marmont always come up, but while I used to like them when I was younger, literally everyone I know has them and I've stopped seeing any appeal - even though the Disco's dimensions are exactly what I'm looking for, ideally.

I do love the black and beige or solid leather Dionysus, but I'm always wearing gold jewelry and wonder if the silver will clash? (I can't make up my mind about mixing metals and I don't have a black-and-gold bag in rotation right now so one feels necessary.)

Any thoughts or other recommendations?

Hi! In my personal opinion, Gucci is a bit overdone and the YSL bags are heading there too (oversaturated market etc etc.) Perhaps a Prada Diagramme leather clutch or a Prada Saffiano leather bag on chain? The saffiano leather is also more durable than the YSL leather that tends to scratch more easily.

Wow I forgot about this, I ended up actually getting a Chloe because I realized I just wasn't a fan of the branding/commonness of the others! But I do love some Prada bags and will look for them in the future.

I want to pull the trigger on this Fendi Peekaboo Iseeu Medium, but I’m still debating whether I would enjoy the maintenance costs on the white sheepskin outer. (For context, I’m the person who always forgets to pick up the dry cleaning but hates getting it delivered to my building since it’s only a block away. I also somehow manage to spill coffee on myself whenever I’m wearing white. :nopity:) Poor practical choice or no such thing when it comes to handbags?
