Ok ... to make a long story short after several months of discussion and sending bags back and forth, I received the MbyMJ Dr. Q Dakota tall tote last month. This was a replacement for my Spring 07 softy faridah in black. I didn't love the past two seasons of the softy faridah, so I went with the Dr. Q. I've had the bag for a month, but haven't carried it. It's a big bag, but I've become so warped that I don't know if it's big enough for me. I can fit my laptop inside with room for the rest of my stuff which is good, but for whatever reason I am hesitant. I am not going to send it back to the MbyMJ store. They have been more than accomodating for me, and I don't want to push my luck! So ... I am deciding whether or not to sell the Dr. Q Dakota on eBay and just hold out for another great MbyMJ bag or MJ collection bag. Or to keep the bag, knowing that it won't be my go to every day bag. Which might not be a bad thing. :shame: Also, I have the Dr. Q Groovee in Bordeaux, but I don't think the bags are all that similar. Different shape, different color, different hardware. And that's one of the things that I love about the Dr. Q Dakota - silver hardware! Sorry this is so long! Should I keep the Dr. Q Dakota or sell it to fund future bag purchases? I welcome your opinions, ladies!
