hi everyone! I'm new to the kooba world...but have had my eyes on some bags that I have fallen in love with. I'd like to ask your opinion on which bag to choose. I'm having a difficult time choosing between the Meredith in Slate or the Charlie in Black. I love the look of both bags and the practicality of being able to carry them 2 ways...I don't own any black or gray bags...so either one would be a great decision! I've tried both bags on at Neimans and still cant choose! All of my other bags are LV so I've decided to diversify...I appreciate your help!! Jamie p.s. i would get both if i could...!!
