Hmm...there's been a lot of buzz in the LV forum about hermes, this has got me thinking...Le Fabuleux or Birkin. I've compared photos of the two all weekend and I have to say I prefer the Le Fab. I like that it can be a shoulder or handheld and that it has the hardware detail (also the price is a little softer on the wallet). I've even shown the pics to my BF and he agrees (which is a big deal because he could care less about purses). What do you think?
