I have my bf to thank for my first mono piece: introducing my Hudson GM He attended a wedding with me this weekend and I carried around a dinky little epi Honfleur. He told me he wanted to get me a nicer bag So we picked one out together and the Hudson GM was the bag that we both agreed looked best on me. Odd that I chose mono since I am not a big mono fan probably because, and I mean no offense, I've become somewhat desensitized to it from seeing mono Speedies, Noe, Alma, etc. on a daily basis. However, I really love this bag because it's so versatile and different. I can wear it as a shoulder bag or crossbody. It's the perfect size, I love the zippers and I just LOVE the Marc Jacobs style. I also have never seen this bag on anyone IRL, which makes it a bit more interesting I'm so excited! Ah I love my bf.
