I first saw Michael's medium Margo in vanilla and promptly fell in love with the structured shape, striking hardware, awesomely cool top handle, and easy breezy convertible style. Then I saw it in luggage, and thought "Ooooooooh - same adorable shape in a much more versatile and stain-resistant color!" Plus, I've been digging cognac accessories lately, and MK's luggage color is gorgeous IRL. I instantly added it to my 'Must Buy Once It Goes On Sale' list.

Now, a few weeks later, it's on sale, but I'm having second thoughts. I don't love the chunky gold chain on the strap. I still love the shape, but compared to other (much higher end) bags I've been loving lately, the design is somewhat busy - 2 tones, plus 2 topstitching thread colors. I loved the white on brown stitching initially, but is it too trendy or cheap looking? Is the whole thing trendy and cheap looking? Am I going to look at it in a year or two and wonder what the heck I was thinking buying it?

Please help me decide! To buy or not to buy?

I've been thinking about the gray one myself, and now it's on sale at Macy's. The chain part of the strap is making me hesitate...
