Alright so I'm looking to get an agenda and I've eliminated the Desk Agenda as a candidate in favour of the Trunks and Bags. Buuut... I'd forgotten all about the Monogram Mini Lin Croisette until I came across it again just then on eLUXURY, and it sure is beautiful too!

VS

It's also a seasonal item and I just love the design and colours of it, but the only thing holding me back is that it's a fabric material. Is it truly "stain resistant and water-repellent" as eLUXURY claims? Could those who have items in this material kindly share their experiences? My concern is that the fabric might smell and/or become soiled with repetitive handling and use.

Sorry for being so indecisive, but would I'd sure like to read your input and opinions! :flowers:

Hi Clay! I am glad that you come to me for an advice. For me, I still prefer T&B coz minilin croisette will eventually get dirty after sometimes. My friend has the mini lin croisette bag and it is not really water resistant. But usually I will buy small leather goods that will match with the bag. If you have monogram bag, T&B will be great, but if you have a light colour bag, the mini lin croisette will be perfect! ;)

Thanks for responding with your advice! ;) That's a good point about complementing bags with SLGs, and I do have the Monogram Canvas Sac Plat so I guess the Trunks and Bags would match perfectly. I thought it might be nice though to just get a completely different material altogether, just for variety, but the dirt issue worries me... :s

The Trunks & Bags without a doubt...I just bought one last week in the small...And as much as you'll be handling your agenda...I don't think the fabric one would hold up well at all...JMHO! :tispy:

I say definitely T&B. It's A LOT easier to maintain and Mini Lin Croisette will get dirty. I'm still afraid to use my speedy because I'm afraid it'll get dirty. :s
