I kind of miss my stam, but I think I did the right thing. I'm considering the Emily Bowler instead. I think it's more classic looking. Opinions?

I think this bag looks great! I also dig how it comes in several colors, both neutral and more vibrant. Good choice!
I also think you did the right thing with the stam, I have a hard time loving the stam because I can't get over how chunky the hardware is.:shrugs:

The bowler looks gorgeous! I haven't seen one IRL, but it looks really pretty. Have you decided to buy it?

At the moment I still love Stam but you're right, this is *definately* a classic, and for all ages. I think Stam is generally a younger bag (I said generally guys!)

^^ I agree and disagree. I think for young bucks like myself the stam is a trend right now. But the stam is definitely "grannie chic" The frame, kiss lock closure, quilted detail etc. I always see elderly woman with it (I mean 65+). I still love the stam and I'm currently regretting my decision (but I know I won't be in about 4 months) Now that I'm looking at the Emily, I'm not NUTS about it. A venetia or stella will be my next conquest. I'm going to wait a while though.

^^ you're right! I think that's what happened with my stam. I got it for 35% off and paid even less for it than I did my mp but I had crazy buyer's remorse.

I personally don't like the Emily in black. The leather looks very nylon-y in that picture. However the lighter color (oatmeal or bisque) looks reall nice.

I agree. I think it would look good in Truffle, too! Was this bag featured in a recent Saks catalog?
