Well, its finally decision time for my birthday present ( I always buy myself something - don't tell anybody!) I've obsessed over whether I should get the e/w bag or the classic flap (black caviar for both). I can get the e/w for $1375 (which I think is the price prior to last increase) vs. the flap for about $1000 more. I really love both. Right now I am leaning toward the e/w, but am I blinded by the "great deal"? By the way, I'm more of a tote girl for daytime use. So, this will be to wear out on Sat. night with jeans or a little dress. What do you ladies think?
