New to the Forum- you all have helped me make a decision on a new bag! Thanks! One of the reasons I wanted a good quality purse was to eliminate all the "throwaways" that have falling apart on me to the point that they're not even good enough for charity donation, or have become quickly outmoded. I wanted something that was worth repairing, would remain in style, and wouldn't end up as expendible landfill fodder. After looking and looking, I chose to go with LV, and selected the Damier Papillion 26 as a sensible daily purse and I'm thrilled! I have this feeling this bag will hold lots of memories and will be a joy to own. Anybody else feel like that a good quality bag is a way to be "green" and eliminate waste in such a throwaway world? Okay...does anybody feel like it's a good excuse anyway??? I LVOE my little log!!!
