I've been lusting after this bag for a long time -- and was finally able to find one, at the same time having space in my budget for a new bag! I love it -- love the leather, the lightness, the size (to all those who find the Large daunting -- it's not that big, it smooshes down really nicely!). And I love that you can change the look instantly -- though it's a much smaller duffle than a hobo!
:wlae::yahoo::wlae:

I'm in love. Love love love lol!

Just one pic, will try to take more when it's daytime.

Me too! I am trying to decide between this and Bianca. When Sasha is carried as a hobo, do the satchel straps get in the way? TIA

Thanks everyone! :biggrin:

trevor, melodoki, it could definitely fit a laptop (maybe a macbook-sized one) but I wouldn't like to, I'd be scared it might hurt the bag by making it too heavy? Does that make sense!? melodoki, I think because it IS new the short handles are a little "tight" but you can "flip" them down so they don't get in the way when you are using it as a hobo. Which is how I am going to use it primarily I think!

tonij2000, I will definitely post more pics soon!

yeah that could be a possibility but i was thinking since there are straps that go under the bag, perhaps that will help it and the bottom won't sag too much?

, I got lucky on the bay :smile:

trevor, I can't say I have an answer for that :sad: Sorry -- maybe someone with a small laptop and the bag can answer that for you? My old laptop is a hefty, big widescreen one that I use primarily at home.

One pic showing its true color, with daylight:

Please excuse the saggy (pants) butt. It's the weekend and these are my weekend roomy leg comfy throwaround pants!


For size reference, I'm 5' 7.5" and a size 6-8.

LOVE this bag!
