I went to NM today and strolled through the Chanel area. I paused to look at the MC collection thinking that just maybe I didn't give it a fair shake. So, I tried on the large bag again and, (again) although I loved the unique shape, I didn't think it looked good on me. I tried on the smaller tote and it seemed too similar to the shape of some of the other bags I have. Next, I tried on the flap. Very cute, but just too small for me. I started to walk away and the nice SA said, "Give this one a try," referring to the hobo. "No," I said, "I don't like the hobo shape. Not interested." Well she talked me into it and ....I loved it!! :shame: Try it on gals! The shape looks great in this style. I bought it in the gray (more like a taupey gray) but I can pick it up until next Thurs (so that I can get double points on my NM card). Can't wait!!
