I have searched high and low for a black leather tote. I wanted something that could be carried (and look good) over the shoulder, on my arm, or in hand and that wasn't too heavy. I wanted it to zip shut (all the way so stuff inside doesn't get wet when it rains) and if possible I wanted the bag to have feet on the bottom so it doesn't get scratched. Everything I have found weighed a ton or wouldn't fit my full size agenda. I found one bag I liked but it had gaps on the side and I got stuck in a snow storm and my stuff inside got wet! Then I found the Black Epi MADELEINE GM! Its perfect! Fits all the criteria above AND it has a pocket on the back where I can put my id and plane tickets when I travel. Its the perfect everyday business or pleasure bag. Between this and my speedy I am covered. I almost forgot...I love epi leather. I have a gift card for Saks and am going to buy a cles to hang from it. I will post pics then.
