I kind of took the plunge and "borrowed" this bag from Beg, Borrow or Steal. It's my first time doing this so I don't know if I will like using the service or not. But it is a great way to "test" out a bag before committing big bucks. My last big spurge was the LV Manhatten, I only used it 2x because the bag is so heavy! I spent $1300 in cash for a bag that I don't like. Boy was my hubby mad! Going to Vegas so I thought I would look cool, lol. Maybe I will win enough to get me my own bag.
