Hi everyone. I received my MONI MONI Splendor yesterday in BLACK and I was so excited because I thought it was going to be THE bag for me. After reading all the posts here of folks who love theirs, I was so excited to get mine. I am thinking it is going to have to go back, pronto. The leather is incredible and super soft, and I know they are all handmade so the sizes vary, but the description states 14-15 inches wide and mine is 17 inches wide and 11 high! Oh Yay! I got one of the GIANT ones! At 5'4 115 lbs, the bag looks like a huge soggy lump on me. It hangs with no shape or style. I tried putting all my stuff in it and it all just fell into the middle and hung like a wet bag. My husband looked at me and said "What the H&*L is THAT?" LOL! Oh well. I love the bags that have the shoulder strap option, but can't deal with this one. Does anyone have any suggestions on a mid-size bag under $500 that is either a shoulder bag, or has a shoulder strap option?
