I'm thinking of making the first large purchase in my life, and I'm currently debating between the following: 1) Christian Dior large pink python gambler bag 2) MJ stam in mouse I only have money for one of them. Which one do you think I should splurge my limited cash on? I also love the CD gambler but one difficulty is that my mother is afraid of snakes to the death, and I'm not sure if I should scare her like that, to have her go to my closet, out of curiosity open the dust bag, and . Any opinion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! *Also, are the MJ leathers getting harder these days in general or are they limited to specific styles? Is the stam leather also getting stiffer?
