So when the this bag came out about two/three years ago, I was in absolutely hell. It was gorgeous, minimalist, clean lines and a beautiful body: everything I wanted in a bag at that moment. The only hitch was that it was waaaaay out of my price range, especially at that time.
Fast forward a couple years on, things are on the up and up, that with some self control, I was finally able to save up and treat myself (early) for my birthday this year.
I was torn between colors, textures, sizes, etc. I knew I wanted grainy leather as it would be more slouchy, less of a hassle (in terms of scratches and creasing). I was torn. Between two blues (the azure-lapis and the jean), a grey, and a beige. In the end I decided on black as it is a color I don't have in my collection yet, interestingly enough, and it came in the grainy texture (the azure-lapis and grey did give me a moment of hesitation tho). And medium was the size in the end, as I have a lot of larger tote bags and wanted something I could just sling in the shoulder or tight across the body for a more modern look.
