I've been lusting over the St. Louis Tote for almost a year now and am taking a trip to NYC in a few weeks and think I'm finally going to take the plunge! Yes, I know, I know... the SL has become somewhat passe in NY... HOWEVER, I live in TX. Goyard bags aren't even a blip on the map here! And it would make a great summer bag... That being said, some questions for you all: First, does anyone know how much they cost now?? The last figure I could find was just under $1000, but I'm not sure if there's been a price increase since then. Second, how do y'all feel about mongraming? I'm a sucker for a monogram, but I don't know if I want to wait 3 months to get the bag back, I can't decide if it looks cheesy, and I don't know if I want to fork over an additional $300 for some paint strokes. They are cute though! Okay sorry for all of the questions. Hope you guys can help!
