  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. I just got the Madison, but I am eyeing the Brooke, and I can't decide if I should exchange the Madison. I love the slouchyness (is that even a word? lol) of the Brooke, which I guess is why Im leaning towards it.

    Does anyone have modeling pictures of the Brooke? Oh and I am eyeing the large one, so it will be an even exchange. TIA
     
  2. No modeling pictures, but if you love slouchy, go for the Brooke. The leather is soft and scrumptious. I have 2 Brookes, both large, and they are very unstructured. Good luck with your decision!
     
  3. I just got the large Brooke last week and love it. I just finished a big cake project so I'm covered in sugar right now but if you want, I can take a modeling picture tomorrow.
     
  4. I recently bought a large Brooke, and I find that it is not large enough for me. I prefer the Madison Carryall. Just my two cents, :smile:
     
  5. I just compared the measurements, and I think you may be right. I haven't even worn her yet, so maybe I should just wear her and love her :biggrin:
     
  6. I already have the Madison Carryall in bone leather, but I am thinking I may get the same Op Art one that you have. I love it. The grey is gorgeous.
     
  7. I really like the grey one you already have... it is just gorgeous!!!
     
  8. Thank you, it is a gorgeous color, even better in person. I think I may just keep her. If its meant for me to have the Brooke, I'll get her :biggrin:
     
  9. keep your lovely carryall I like her :smile:
     
  10. I have the large brooke and she's my most favorite bag! I thought for a while that she may be over-whealming me with her size, but today i was wearing her and realized that she's just perfect for my situation (2 little kids), and decided to keep her. I have the large black leather one.
     
  11. Well now I have to keep her, because I snipped the tags so I can use her later on today. I figure if it's meant for me to have the brooke, I'll get her one day
