So I finally made it down to the store yesterday to check out the bags I had in mind to use as a book tote. First off, boy am I glad I did that - the one I thought I'd love, I hated! I tried the Lockit Horizontal, the Saleya MM/GM, the Chelsea (which I really liked, surprisingly), and the Cabas Mezzo. I am in LOVE with that Mezzo! That's definitely going to be the one I get...here's the only problem. Up till now, I've avoided Monogram bags like the plague. I go to college in a pretty bad neighborhood, and I feel like they draw too much attention. I know I shouldn't care what others think, but NO ONE here carries LV, so people really seem to notice when someone does. I suppose I could SO one in Damier, but something about the Mezzo in Mono was so yummy....Also, I'm studying at a new school during the Spring Semester, and I really don't want everyone's impression of me to be a giant Louis Vuitton bag. What do you guys think? Does anyone else ever feel this way? What did you do in the end?
