After a long debate on whether or not I should keep the grande shopper, I would up giving it to my lovely mom . Effective today, I no longer own the bag (which kind of sucks when you really think about it...hehehe). However, I paid a visit to our local Chanel boutique this afternoon to check out the Cerf more thoroughly. Checking led to buying. Now, you know the the rest of the story. I utterly LOVE this bag! Thanks all for your inputs and suggestions.
