Good morning!

I need some input. I'm looking for an everyday workhorse - roomy, comfy to carry - that I can use for work, weekend errands/shopping, travel, etc. I am currently torn between a Stella and a Francesca. "Both" is not currently an option. :) There's a wine Stella on the 'bay, as well as a gray Francesca I'm eyeing. Thoughts?

Sweet - thanks! I was looking at a darker gray Francesca on eBay, but with the Friends and Family going on at Saks, I may pick a new one up in Cement from there instead.

I haven't tried that one out but if your looking for that type of tote it could work. The only thing I don't like is that they are not structured so they puddle when there's not enough in them (most mbmj). Which is fine usually but for a work bag I like structure.

Yeah - I'm still torn. That lack of structure works great with Francesca, but I'm not sure about the THTH Tote...may irk me over time when it gets all saggy on the bottom. LOL. I may just hold off on getting any bags right now...can't let the temptation of 25% off get the better of me!

That said, I totally think I'm going to get the blue MbMJ owl flats. Too cute

and that exclusion list is why i don't even bother waiting for these sales. it would be shorter to list what *is* included, wouldn't it?

i guess this is how people find good instore deals, but i don't know how you guys have the patience to sort through everything. takes more than i have lol

i love this but wish it was calf hair so it would match the ladybug bag
