I bought a Miu Miu handbag/messenger bag yesterday. It's in a tan color and it looks similar to this: credit: neimanmarcus except it's bigger (probably twice the size and in length) and it has a strap that allows one to wear it as a messenger bag. It is very very cute and I love the fact that I can take the strap out and use it as a plain hand-held handbag. I have been looking for a messenger bag for a while now and finally come across to this. Anyhoo after I went home and thought it over, I have a bit of a doubt. since this bag costs CAD 1095 or 1195 (gosh I can't believe I forgot already.. and it's only yesterday!) which comes to USD 940 or so plus tax, I am wondering what other bags out there in this price range (meaning 940 or less) that might be a bit better than this one(better brand, better make)? This bag is made of deer skin and I love the color. My one concern is that it might be a bit too plain. Please let me know whether I have made a good purchase or not!! I will try to post pics tonite when I get home.
