Thanks for your input! @Incalifornia7 I totally agree, the black is more formal. Thank you! @Latte_Queen Congrats!! Do you find you still have occasion to use your mini anymore? I fear my mini may go unused if I get the Essentially. Love to see a pic of both! @tarheelap I’m trying to be responsible and frugal too! But it is so hard! Congrats on your purchases! @OneMoreDay I also totally agree, the Essentially is so sharp and polished. Thanks for confirming my thoughts - my mini can be for casual use whereas the Essentially can be used more formally. @Addicted to bags Yours looks amazing! Do you have occasion to use your mini at all, since you have both also?
