Ok, I got a close up look at this bag, which I really thought I needed, when I saw it from a distance...please, please forgive me on this one...may I be honest? I really DON'T have a problem with the price tag, in itself, 1930,00 which makes it $2490.00 USD, but, honestly, I just didn't see that price level of quality...am a nuts? :cry: I think Vuitton does lovley bags in the affordable luxury range, but, is it just me, or do they just not quite "have it" in the higher range? (Please, don't hate me! I think they are so beautiful (design wise)...but, when I got close up...and since I am a little used to my custom crafted bags....I just can't see the same quality for the price....It just seems like, at least for this bag in particular, the value is more in the LV name, than in the quality...apart from the wonderful leather, that is! Excuse me....Don't hate me, or send me one of those firey red guys.... :shame: I just couldn't bring myself to buy it...dommage!
