Hi Ladies- I need your advice. I have been an LV lovers for years, but recently have switch to Chanel. I have an LV Batignolles that I like a lot, but I am eyeing the Chanel Cerf in the CC closure (not Madamoisse). I probably don't need another tote, but I really this bag a lot. Can I justify buying a Chanel tote if I already have an LV tote? My real concern is that I am afraid that the leather on the cerf will get softer in time and make the bag have less "structure." And not look as nice as first bought. I bought the LV big bucket when it first came out, and in time it can't stand up "straight" by itself due the weight it carries and gravity (like all of us when we get older!) Does anyone have a cerf bag that can comment on this? All help and advice appreciative! Thanks!!!
