Hi Ladies, I can't believe it. I was away from tpf for about two years. Away from BE. Then...in the space of 4 days...I've bought four bags. Que pasa? I better disappear again...ha ha ha 1. I ordered my first BEC Stroke Me in tan bubble chevre. That started it. This is the "old" BE bag that I truly adore. 2. Then, I glanced at the sale, and a Madrid in Vermillion Chevre seemed divine and the right price. The vermillion called my name. It is the most mysterious, luminous color! 3. Then I realized I liked the Milan. A "ladies" retro chic, structured (but soft) boxy bag. 4. Then I realized I must have an L.A. Satchel! From looking a modeling pix on tpf, I realized it is the bag I've always wanted, but better. I have always loved the LV Black Epi Speedy. But I hate the handles. So this has that classic shape, but the handles can go over the shoulder, and there is a shoulder strap. Maybe I should disappear again for awhile... I will def post reviews and modeling pix.
