Am I the only one that didn't know that LV is cheaper in Hawaii?? Why is that?? Anyhow, I ended up getting the Batignolle horizontal and it is FABOULOUS! I only wished I had brought my laptop because I spent 2 days debating on what to purchase-a Gucci bag or an LV and needed some advice . The Batignolle on eLuxuy and on the mainland is $710 with 8.25% tax in CA and in Hawaii, it was only $665--$693.xx with tax! What a deal huh? Ok, on to why I couldn't decide. I already have the LV Cabas Piano. I love it but it is a little small for me since I carry a ton of stuff. When I bought the Cabas, the Batignolle just came out and thought it was too big (wrong thought) and so, i've been on the search for a bigger bag. The reason why I didn't want to purchase the Batignolle is because I might neglect the Cabas. Weird I know..I think that my bags have feelings. The reason why I was leaning towards the Gucci is because I have yet to purchase my first Gucci. I forgot the style and too lazy to check the style name but its a basic tote bag AND its the same price as the LV. Ahhh, although I'm already home, I'm feeling so guilty!! I don't know why. I know that I got a good deal on it but stilll, I just have that feeling. Someone please make me feel better and say that I made the right decision Thanks!!
