I had it in my head that I was going to save for an LV Speedy. I realized today that that's silly. I'm only 20, I make minimum wage, and I live in a middle class area in the Midwest. Do I really NEED a $600 bag? That's why I have come back to my LOOOVE for Coach, and decided to appreciate the beauty and value of the brand before *possibly* moving on to higher-end pieces when i'm older. That being said, i'm glad i'm back. Looking at a LARGE bag that's $250 instead of a damn...coin purse...it's refreshing. (not saying that I think the other prices are stupid, but they just aren't realistic for me) Question! The Signature Stripe Tote...when it's fully loaded, do the handles dig into your shoulder? I would just like to know before I decide which bag I would want to buy. It's between that, or the large Carly.
