I've had two Nishikis, one Centurion, one Raleigh. All are nice riders. If you want something with cro-mo, take a look at stringbreaker's latest thread on mixte frames--it'll give you some good ideas!

To be honest if it's for your wife or girlfriend whatever "SHE" likes. You'll find some very nice Japanese frames, Raleigh Frames. First thing you should know about mixtes for women, they have to look pretty.

And the ultimate mixte thread is

Show us your mixte (mhendricks' new happy place)

Lots of eye candy there to be inspired by.
