I had to go to the Dentist today in Owings Mills. So I figure ..I'm close to Towson Town Mall, why don't I shoot up there and go to Nordstrom. After looking at a few bags I decided on the Choloe Paddington or the MJ quilted bag. The Paddington, although beautiful was too heavy for my tastes and the lock would get in my way of getting in and out of the bag. Initially I wanted a darker color bag, but when I saw this MJ bag I fell in love. I think the color will work all year round. What do you ladies think?
