Help me aquire the perfect purse.

I am extremely picky about my purses. When I shop for bag first I go by appearance, quality, then strap drop. The strap drop excludes a good 95% of bags I like, but online it is the hardest thing to search by. Does there exist a site something like Zappos or Nordstrom that will let me search by strap drop? That would solve most of my problems. I have tried to google for a site like that but my Fu is failing me. [more inside]

I want a stylish handbag to carry my mac book pro 13" and other bits

I'm looking for a leather handbag that can comfortably carry a 13" mac book pro, an A4 diary and bits and pieces of make up etc... Ideally it would be black, brown and tan and be able to be carried over the body or off the shoulder. Classic, unfussy and work friendly design preferred.

Looking for recommendations on a functional leather crossbody bag

I like bags and purses that have organization details and pockets galore, but I am also prone to carrying unnecessary weight if the bag is too large. To spare my shoulder and back, I've been downsizing to smaller crossbody bags. I've enjoyed using Travelon purses, but the most recent one is wearing out on me and I'm looking at a future replacement. [more inside]

Yet another search for the perfect bag

I'm in the market for a new handbag, that will hopefully last me forevermore (or at least long enough to justify the monetary investment - I don't want to be buying a new handbag every year because the old one wears out). Lots of snowflakes inside. [more inside]

Help a fashion novice get a handle on her new handbag.

I recently bought a Fendi Classico No. 4 as a self-reward for an accomplishment and because it's just perfect for me. But I don't own a lot of designer items or keep up with all the trends, so I'm a little clueless as to how to treat it!

Hard wearing handbag required

What sort of materials and construction should I be looking for for longevity of a handbag? Is a good full-grain leather handbag going to last a significant period of time? I have had a series of moderately (cheap?) priced leather handbags (Jag, Diana Ferrari). As quickly as I am pleased that I have found a bag that suits me, it seems to commence disintegration - not necessarily the leather itself, but all the non-leather trims quickly become ratty looking.

How to keep leather handbag looking like new?

I need some handbag care advice for my girlfriend. She has a golden-tan leather Furla bag that is starting to get a little dried out. We're not in a big city, so going to a professional probably isn't an option. What can she do to treat the leather so it stays looking like new? Specific brand names of products we can order are preferable.

Where to find last year's Furla handbag

Help me find a great handbag for my wife! I've really taken a liking to the Furla Frida as in this Sartorialist pic (handbag on the left). I can't find it anywhere as it came out last year (except for $600 in the UK). I've done all of the top line google searches etc... Please post suggestions of places to look or for similar items if you know of any. I'm also in LA if there are appropriate brick and mortar solutions. Used is great too.
