Why not go visist the store and try on a few different bags and see which one you feel more comfortable carrying. There are so many mono bags to choose from and many of them are not that well known by the general public. Since you don't have any particular bag in mind I say go for comfort. The griet is stunning but it is not the easiest bag to carry.Since I don't own may designer bags, this is probably the only LV bag I will own for a long time. That's why I'm leaning towards the monogram. I want a bag that is not everywhere (uncommon). As far as loving the bag... I really don't "love" any handbag.
