I do ! I don't baby it in fact, I'm carrying
It today with my tube tank I'm using it
freely and I'm not scared . I just want to enjoy
It as much as possible !!!!
Thanks so much for your reply. I've been avoiding wearing my bag when it's too hot then wiping the top down when I do wear it. I've never babied a bag so much. From now on I'm gonna just wear it and enjoy it as much as possible b/c I really do love it :)
So I was all set to go get myself an artsy bag, but after holding it, I decided it was just too big of a bag for me. Didn't think I would ever say that either. I'm all for the bigger the better but I felt overpowered by the bag. I'm on the shorter side (5'3""), but certainly don't consider myself that short. I think the bag would have been perfect in the pm size, which it doesn't come in. I felt it was also heavy, before I even put all my stuff in it, too! Wound up with the delightful pm. Loving it?
I put my artsy handle on my wooden closet rod/dowel with a washcloth to protect the handle. It really helped to loosen up the handle. I placed items in the bag weekly to gradually add weight and now voila!!! It was very easy to use over my shoulder and forearm!!!
I'm getting my first LV in a couple weeks and I'm having a hard time deciding between the artsy MM and GM. Is the GM just way too big?? I'm 5"7 and not super thin. I keep going back and forth! Help!
Trust me stay with the MM . I think it stretches lol . Mine looks bigger everyday to me . The GM is super huge . I took it home first and returned it that same evening for the MM. Hope this helps . Good luck !
