Our Saks here in New Orleans FINALLY reopened last week, for the first time since Hurricane Katrina passed through 15 months ago. I live nearby and strolled down there to look around today -- the whole store is completed remodeled, after having been looted and set on fire during the chaos of the storm's aftermath. Anyway, of course I stopped in LV, and checked out a few things in person that I never seen IRL before. I thought I'd share for the benefit of those without boutiques close to them. The Trouville is tiny!!! I had no idea. It holds less than a Saleya PM. The Deauville, which I thought would be huge on me (5' 5.5", medium build), looked fine. Who knew? The Manhattan GM and the Deauville are almost exactly the same size, and are VERY similar in shape. I was very surprised to discover this. So if you can't quite pull off the bling of the Manhattan GM (like me -- it's a gorgeous bag, but I can't pull it off!), give the Deauville a try. Very similar size and shape, but much more subdued. The Lockit Horizontal struck me as a nice-sized tote. I thought it would be enormous! It is big, but not too big. Not odd-looking or anything at all. I did find it a little awkward to slip over my shoulder, though. I don't think it would work out for me as an everyday work or travel tote for that reason. The Cabas Mezzo is a bit bigger than the LH, and since it is less structured, I found it more comfortable to carry. It would also hold more than the LH for the same reason. I could easily slip it over my shoulder. It is still not so huge that it looks funny, at all. I guess that's it. I didn't buy anything -- just doing reasearch at the moment! The SA was impressed with my knowledge of the bags -- calling everything by name -- and asked me if I had a copy of the most recent catalog. I said no, and she went in the back and got one for me. Very sweet of her!
