I find the mini looping underrated. I had the looping GM once but it hurt my shoulders badly when it got heavy. But the mini looping is such an elegant bag and seems to be low maintenance. I plan to get it as replacement for the mono pochette that I sold. I can use it as an evening bag or even on weekends when all I need to carry are the essentials like my cel, cles, and small make up pouch. Dont you guys think its a good substitute to a pochette? Lovely lovely.
