Making my dreams come true
Please tell me about your bags :smile: I have a first, day, purse and twiggy. I really prefer bags that I can wear over my shoulder. I saw a woman today with a messenger bag and it looks great on her (non Balenciaga). So it got me thinking......

Maybe I should investigate this style further. I would want one in a really funky color.

Thanks!!!

I have the Sandstone Messenger, just purchased two weeks ago in Paris. I really love this bag! It's great when you want to be "hands free" and lays nicely against the body. Here's a pic:



I'm not sure what other colors it's available in besides Anthracite and Café, though. Those were the only other two colors in stock at Printemps that I'm aware of.

Thanks guys! I have to do more research- what are the differences between the messenger and the courier style? The courier seems a bit too big for me for every day use. The messenger looks more like my style......

The courier is a lot bigger then the messenger. Maybe someone can post the dimensions. I love the courier. It drapes beautifully. Seeing pictures of the courier laying flat doesn't do it justice.

No, please don't hesitate next time!
I got your note this morning but I was heading to work...I'm trying to catch up with everyone's new purchases - I'm jealous, I have to say.

But I have to really be patient, since I'm buying everything that I'm waitlisted for. :wtf:

POST PICS - as usual ;)

I have the regular courrier in Rouille, and I love it.

It's workable as a bag for papers, etc., and just as functional as a slouchy "hobo" type bag, too.

Good luck!

Considering the price of the besace messenger, I think this bag is value for money. Although I am quite hesistant to buy this because it is for men and I am not quite sure if I can carry this bag well. I am 5"7, anyone out there using this style, please post photos. LVizo, love that color, but photo doesnt really show the proportion of you built and the bag.
