I have collected bags for a very long time but nothing has ever caught my eye so much that I had to buy it. In fact I have never bought any bag over a 1000.00 I always wait for the sale...but I couldn't. I bought a Bowling Montaigne PM I won't post my pictures but it's Noir and looks just like the ichelle (believe I spelled that right...if not sorry) I can't believe I did and the person who really was my biggest support was my Husband who went with me to pick out my birthday present yesterday. I was a good girl I put it on hold and came home to think about it. I went back today and bought it. I haven't carried it. I will let you know when I do...I have taken it out and looked at it about 100 times. I did that with my first Marc Jacobs...but now I carry it...so Yeah for me...my very first LV. My husband said will you be happy with Coach, MJ and Kate Spade after this???? well who knows. I also took tons of pictures...I sometimes feel like this is a religious experience for me. Anyone else feel that way?
