Okay, I'll confess, I really wanted a croc bag now and could not take the "delayed" part of the H gratification and bought....another croc tote for summer (NG) which has been sitting there staring at me unused. Now I am debating about returning it, because it is not the ultimate...and also not inexpensive--but it is useful--oysterish color large croc tote. What do I do? Anguish. Part of the equation is summer travel and being torn by wanting my beautiful colorful H bags with me, not being able to choose which color is most versatile so I don't have too much extra baggage and leave valuable bags unattended, not wanting to wreck my H bags in greasy fish and chips joints, airplanes and beachy places, but still wanting a high standard of quality. Ugh.
