I can not stop thinking about the Tahitienne in Pink. I saw last night IRL and it was the perfect size. It looked so cute for summer. :girlsigh:I must admit that the majority of this seasons bags haven't really caught my attention. I didn't think I would like the Tahitienne either. But, as soon as I put it over my shoulder I couldn't help but think to myself 'what a great summer bag'. I didn't bother looking at the price because I figured it would be too much. Looking online this morning I realized that it was only $1000! I know - I know, LV has me pretty jaded to think that $1000 isn't that much. But, I was expected it to be atleast $1500.

While I was there I also checked out the leather Mahina's. They had XLs in both Black and Metallic. I was surprised that I didn't really like them. Even the XS, which they had in both black denim and black leather, wasn't really as adorable as I thought it would be. This was probably because the Tahitienne was smack dab in the middle of them and all I could think about was summer and my upcoming trip to Hawaii.

The Richard Price joke bags were in the front of the boutique and we so much cuter in real life. I loved the texture and exotic handles. They are a little over the top for me but I can see why people would be attracted to them. Even hubby made a comment about how 'that would be a bag I could see celebrities wearing'.

There were two Monogram Tisse bags. They weren't quite my style either. The aged look was pretty neat though.

Now I officially have an HG! If I didn't have a vacation coming up I would certainly be scrambling to save money in order to bring her home. I hope that no one finds her attractive and she sticks around for a while. ;)

I can see why you found the Tahitienne beautiful!! I agree, it would be a great summer bag!
However, $1000 for untreated canvas.. just not sure it would hold up for years kwim?
BUT, I could so see that bag in Hawaii!!! Oh my!
Where are you going? I absolutely loved Maui.. I hope to go back someday, it was my favorite vacation ever!! Take lots of pictures!!!

As you said "Summer Bag", have you checked this out? Indiand Scarf summer bag of Hermes ...it is quite in the same price as Tahitianne. Tahitianne is nice, though.....just would like you to compare with some other to make sure of it. Good Luck!
