Q: I got my wife a Dooney & Bourke bag as a gift, and it didn't go over well. What kind of handbag should I have gotten her?

A: Oh no, sweetie, Dooney & Bourke? A gift like that is just begging for a second present to apologize for this first one. Keep one thing in mind whenever you're shopping for clothes, shoes, or accessories for your lady: fabulous—nothing practical, nothing that "will last forever," nothing that "goes with everything." If there's one thing you need to learn about us girls, it's that we want things that look good, which usually means just sheer over-the-top—but in a classy way like this or this.
