HELP me make a decision!

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.

I am not a big fan of this particular MJ bag, but the LV one is gorgeous and definitely the look you are going for!

I'm not feeling that MJ bag. Too "queen mumish" for me. I love the LV. In black that would be a knockout!

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.

Have you considered Gucci? They have some nice bags that are not too "stuffy." Here are a few I saw.
