Hey all, I was very unsure whether I made a right decision on purchasing my black double gold cc's cerf tote last week because ultimately what i really want as all time classic bag is the Hermes Birkin. a dream.... anyway, after receiving input from the Hermes thread, i must say i still do want the Birkin, but I'm really LOVING my cerf tote. i never carry a tote in that shape, and i was getting annoyed at carrying all my essentials in a smaller bag (like the Bal purse or the LV speedy) and not being able to carry my file folders for work in it too. So i made a decision to buy the cerf. I love that it can fit so much and still look so elegant. It's subtle unlike LV, but i find that's the understated beauty of the quality leather. and I LOVE the double CCs b/c they're not in your face and they're in gold. i always think the black and gold combo looks nicer than black & silver. i'm still aiming for a birkin in the coming years, but for now, the cerf is a good alternative for me. what do you think?
