I want to buy my wife a designer bag for Christmas (thinking YSL) but can’t decide if a chain wallet or a handbag. She is a stay at home mom. Is this something that can be used on an everyday basis? Or something for the occasional fancy night out for dinner? Pics in comments.

P&GC1 - the YSL cross body and shoulder bag is a “thing”. Their bag is a prestige, must-have.

And goyard, unique?? It’s on every mom in every restaurant and school drop off.

Handbag. The chain wallet is useless.

Definitely handbag, but consider Goyard. YSL makes clothes, not bags. I’m also a fan of LV, Prada, and Gucci, but I like Goyard for women because it’s a bit more unique. To me, there’s some the big incongruous about a YSL bag. I do love YSL—I have a velvet smoking jacket from them that I love for black tie—but not for bags/ leather goods.

Oh completely agree LV is everywhere but I see goyard a ton in NYC. I also agree with you about YSL- I’m not personally into the big logo but to each their own!

Women consider purses or handbags a personal item because they buy those things to fit a specific need. My wife would not like a handbag or purse or wallet from me as a gift because only she knows her needs. If you want to buy her something nicer than what she uses today only for special occasions, then you need to make those special occasions happen regularly.

don’t get the chain walllet. It’s ugly and too faked. Try a different brand that is more classy I would recommend Celine, Bottega, or Loewe

Loewe is wonderful and so underrated!

Handbag. If it's not big enough to hold her cell phone in addition to basic credit card, cash and ID, then it's too small.

Consider Aldo too perhaps

I put a lot of efforts making friends and always try to be with my friends whenever they need. But, I didn’t always get invited to the party while guys they complained a lot and they hate…those guys are often invited. Maybe attraction is a part of problem in making friendship? Because the guy I hang out have big preference with certain race and he wants to be friend with them more than me. And it seems to insult me sometimes…but let’s be positive… maybe culture, language and other? I’m sad tho.

As we transition to a new schedule with our kid in preK, we are trying to figure out a better way to plan our dinner and evening routine. Every evening just feels like an exhausting mad dash to make dinner, try to get kid to eat, eat ourselves, bathe kid on bath nights and get him to bed. We try and keep dinners simple and quick but it still feels like a race. I guess it is this way for many (or most) families. Any suggestions on how to reclaim your sanity?
