Hi ladies! I'm popping in from my normal stomping grounds over in the Bal forum. But I am, and I always will be a LV lover as well. The Mahina recently caught my eye, but when I look at the measurements, I think that even the smaller one has to be one huge bag! If any of you are familiar with Bbags, the City size is absolutely the largest I can go. I am a jewelry designer who has been concentrating on making handbag accessories recently, and I also am a book reviewer. Both of these things are done in my home, so I do not need to bring everything and the kitchen sink with me, like I used to when I worked outside the home. Is the smaller Mahina just too big for my needs? It is such a lovely bag! Does anyone have modeling pics or a link to a thread with modeling pics? I have seen some gals say they are on the waiting list for this bag, and some of you may know this, but I always call the customer service line instead of going on wait lists. The CS people have access to inventory from their main shipping site, and every store across the country. I have gotten many bags this way without ever being on a waiting list, and sometimes I have gotten a bag the first time I called and sometimes it takes a day or two for them to track one down for me. I have the number if anyone wants to pm me for it. Thanks in advance for Mahina advice!
