Hi all! ****Warning...long post...please bear with me. :shame: Since this is about both Miu Miu and Marc Jacobs, I decided to post in the regular handbag thread to see what responses I get. For those of you who know me in the MJ subforum, some of you may have followed my MJ Stam drama/trauma. To recap for those who don't know, I purchased a Camel Stam in June and the handles completely discolored within a few wears; I went to exchange it for a black one, but my local NM did not have it and other stores did not want to charge-send it because it's a "hot" item; and I finally ordered a new Stam online, but the delivery service was really awful and I had to drive 40 minutes to a deserted warehouse/industrial park to pick it up. So all in all, the experience kind of soured me on the bag to the point where I haven't used it. I've carried it in the house in front of the mirror, but I'm a bit afraid to use it outside. I think I feel this way because it's the most expensive bag I've purchased. I'm also afraid that over time, the kisslock (although a newer one) will get loose and the bag won't stay closed very well - as with many frame bags. Recently, I've been lurking in the Miu Miu subforum and have been admiring the Coffer bag in black leather. It really caught my eye and I'm thinking about getting that instead. I feel bad for being so indecisive and paranoid about the Stam. I've been a fan of Marc Jacobs for a long time, and have a lot of Marc bags, but this is the first where I've had so much trouble. My questions are: Which do you guys like better? Which do you think is more classic and less trendy - will stand the test of time better? Am I crazy? I'm SO torn because I really do love the Stam, but worry about practicality and wear. I'm worried that the Miu Miu is too trendy. Here are some pics for people who are unfamiliar with either: MJ Stam Miu Miu Coffer (Both pics from Neiman online) THANKS!
