Hi everyone. I just purchased a batignolles horizontal and i just love it so! I have to share with you all the story on why i decided to get this purse. After being on this forum day and night and admiring all the lv purses on the lv website, i decided to get an everyday purse instead of getting what i originally wanted which was the red epi speedy 25 or soufflot. I was doing the research on the batignolles last week thursday. I also noticed that a few of you who own this purse just love it! Sooo... i decided that my next purse (not knowing when i'd purchase it) would be the horizontal batignolles. Friday comes (next day), and i'm at the hospital (work) and the first patient that i come to meet with is carrying the batignolles. IT WAS A SIGN! THAT WAS IT! I WAS SOLD! I felt it was unprofessional of me to ask about her purse but i did anyway and she didnt seem to mind. I called my husband from work and said "I'm getting the purse tonight!!!" and thats what we ended up doing. Right after work, we rushed to hollywood and highland and picked up my new baby and I just love it!!!!! As soon as I find time, I'll take pictures and post them.
