I bought the Batignolles Horizontal the other day and showed it to my friend and she looked at me like I pulled out a bad fake. So I say "okay, I guess you don't like it" and she says, "no, no I like it. I just didn't expect you to like it. It's kinda boring for you." I guess she wasn't expecting me to buy a simple Mono anything (I have 3 LV bags and the BH was my first Mono piece) I still not sure if that was a compliment or not.:wondering Funny thing is, I'm going to return it for a discontinued piece of Mandarin Epi I guess that will be unusual enough for her.
