HELP me make a decision!

Jan 10, 2006
Ok, so I've been really enjoying my new YSL Mombasa. But I'm tempted to get a new bag.... There are lots of interesting things out there for spring, but nothing's really "done" it for me... I realized that I don't really have a "great" black bag--just this one Coach Soho flap shoulder style that works well when I'm going for the conservative look.

Anyways, some input would be helpful. I was thinking that the LV Epi Figari MM in black might be a nice classic. Has anyone seen this in person?

Or what about this MJ:

It's not as big as it looks in the photo.

I do have the Fendi B-bag in the tan/black patent combo on pre-order. It's the medium size that Saks and NM both had on pre-order. But it's a little pricer than what I think I want to spend....

I think I'm going for the ladies-who-do-lunch-and-tea look. I don't want a Chanel flap purse with a chain strap though... Thanks for the input! Oh and I'd like to stay around in the $1200 budget.
What about a Chanel Kelly?
The ultimate ladies who lunch bag?
But out of the two I like the MJ...but the shoulder straps look like they might be tight.
Thanks for all your input! I think I'll try to see the Figari in person--it's a shape that could look really good or just odd...

The MJ is very nice IRL. Just debating whether it's the "right" black bag :P Any more input is welcome!
I love that MJ. I saw one at Holt before I even saw it on the internet. Unfortunatly is was special ordered for someone else. It's even better in person. I'm usually a sucker for the Epi Leather but that bag just doesn't do it for me personally.
