I have lusted after a St. Louis GM in black & tan for 3? 4? years & finally got one in preparation for an upcoming trip with DH to Germany & Hungary. I'm delighted b/c it's attractive, lightweight, & very useful. But, the open top makes me a bit nervous (pickpockets.) Also, any sugg's for cosmetic case, other acc's? When I carry an LV bag, for instance, most of my acc's are in matching LV. No $ to buy a Goyard wallet, etc. Wondering what the rest of you do?
