got tempted easily!
Pro : Gorgeous..better than suede IMO
Con: I don't own one yet, I don't know if the leather can get scratch easily.
Some ladies already got their onatah cuir, I am sure they will give you some inputs.

Nice to see you around LV forum Megs..

Hi Megs! I saw this over the weekend in Soho and it looks very pretty! The pochette is bigger than I anticipated though. I thought it would be like the size of a pochette accessories but it's A LOT BIGGER. I initially wanted to get one but I wasn't sure about the strap being fabric. =(

The biggest pro I can think of is that you don't really have to care for it as much as monogram bags - there's no vachetta on it. So while you do have to care for it as it is all leather, it's not raw, untreated leather !

Oh, and of course, the pro being it's hot !

I have the pochette and it is a nice bag.
It is a good size bag and can fit a lot.
I have my agenda and checkbook, separate wallet, sunglasses, cellphone and then there is still room to spare.

Saw it this week in SF. Loved the pochette! The purple was very pretty but I think I preferred the brown. It would scratch (I think) but doesn't look to be super scratchable.

I agree..I like the leather much better than the suede. It's so much easier to care for IMO. I don't have a piece, but if I were to get one, I'd go with the leather. I love the's SO pretty!

I like to call it a big ol' ball of shmooshy goodness, if that helps at all.

The leather is really soft, but not delicate. It seems like it will develop a nice patina rather than just scratch. The colors are beautiful IRL & it smells nummy.
