as some of you may know, i recently purchased the mix quilted east/west tote in grey. although it's a beautiful bag and i really like it, i recently found out that there is a smaller version of the same bag that was not available at the mj boutique. i'm not sure why that was since i assumed everything that department stores have in stock, the mj boutiques are bound to carry on top of the exclusive items that you can only buy at a mj store. ever since i saw the smaller version of my bag, i've gotten to thinking that perhaps it would be a better option for me. i know i haven't posted pictures yet, but the bag i currently have is very big. it obscures my entire torso. i do love big bags. i used to own a ysl oversized muse until i sold it a month ago to fund new purchases. i've weighed the pros and cons of both sizes, and i'm still torn. :s the main problem is that even if the mj sa could track down the smaller sized tote for me, it's too late according to the store's return policy. i only had seven days from the date of purchase to exchange the bag or return it for store credit. however, i only came upon the other size a week after i had made my purchase. i don't know what to do and i don't want to be unhappy with a bag that i paid a lot for. i was hoping you ladies could give me some advice or suggestions. have any of you tried to exchange a bag over the seven day policy limit? should i just be happy with the bag i have considering i have many other mj bags in a smaller size (blake, venetia, etc.) and no longer have a larger sized bag? any help would be great appreciated! tia.
