I bet we have the same bag - and regret!A full price Rouseau tote from the Sakura line a few years ago. Pricey! So pretty but I’ve hardly worn it due to the embroidered print that’s a little hard to wear, the saffiano leather (Longchamp doesn’t call it that) that I don’t really like, and the very large tote size of it, so it’s a bag regret. BUT I do love the print and who can’t use a good big tote so I keep it around and wear it a few times each summer. I’m more of a bag bonder than a bag seller. The moral of the story though is that I needed to visit it more in the store, try it, think about it, and I might have realized a few things. I was swept up in its prettiness.
I bought mine while taking a 2-week language in another city, where I needed to schlep work laptop + language books to class in the AM, then sightsee on foot all over in late afternoon. It was also HOT and sunny, which made me susceptible to a cool white and blue bag. I've barely used it since, and it bounces on and off my "to sell" list, but it's so PRETTY!
