Heres the situation: I don't have any LV bags that I can take out in the rain...I have the baggy pm and the monogram speedy 30. Right now the only bag I have that I can take out in the rain is my Dooney and Bourke Barrel Bag, which I don't even like that much. Here in Vancouver we've been having heavy rain and it rains almost everyday now that its winter. So an epi like the Jasmin would be ideal for a rain bag, however, the only colour I would go for now is the Cannelle, and no one I know likes that colour and people say its a boring colour. So I was thinking about waiting to see what the next epi colour will be to see if its nice, because I'd hate to settle for one colour and have a new colour that I love come out next! By the time a new epi colour comes out winter will probably be over though. So should I tough it out through the winter and just carry my one dooney bag? I also want to save up for the yellow Tobago Carryall because there is only one left in Vancouver and its limited. So should I keep saving for the Tobago or settle for the Jasmin? Another thing is that I want to buy the Damier Azur Speedy 25 in the Spring, so I'm not sure if that would be too many handbags for me if I get the Jasmin, because in general I prefer shoulder bags...but for the epi line I'm set on Jasmin because thats my favorite style in epi.
