Wow...I have so much thinking going on right now, between Passy/Segur PM, and now the Couguar/Aurelia MM. I emailed a TPF member about her Aurelia MM and asked about hers, and she says she loves it but asked, "Isn't it too big for you?" I mean, I know it's a big bag, but I really never thought if it'd be TOO big. Yeah, I certainly DON'T carry a lot of stuff out, and the reason why I wanted a larger bag is because sometimes I want to bring along some books or binders with me to do homework on the train, let's say, and none of my LVs at the moment are large enough to hold stuff like that. I also considered using the Aurelia MM as a school bag next year once in awhile when I don't have many things to take with me...but being in lecture theatres, it may mean that I'd have to put my bag on the floor, and although I'd be getting it in black, I'm scared that the MC will rub off over time. And not to mention the vachetta straps and strips down the side of the bag...winter time, I probably will have to use this bag less. So, right now, I'm considering NOT getting the Aurelia MM at all, instead, I'll just stick with getting the Couguar. I can get a smaller MC bag later (like the HL on eBay...or maybe even the Eliza in white MC) but I'll use the Couguar as my big bag. I'll get it in the black, so hopefully it won't get damaged that easily and maybe it'll hold the weight better considering the material is supposed to be more durable. Also, it's a more subtle piece of LV for school. The prices in Canada are: $925 for the Couguar and $1480 for the Aurelia MM. Getting the Couguar also means I can get it faster because it's easy for me to make $1000 rather than $1500. What do you think about my decision? I showed my boyfriend and he likes the Couguar more than the Aurelia MM.
