I posted a few days ago about wanting to purchase a new mono bag. I have the musette shoulder bag and a wallet to match but really wanted a new bag. I was leaning toward the piano or mezzo but worried about the bottom. Many of you suggested the batignolles horizontal. I made a trip to the LV store and tried all of them out. The piano was MUCH smaller than I thought and the mezzo was a little too big. I ended up getting the batignolles. I tried on the vertical but I am afraid that everything would end up on the bottom and I would be digging. I am 6' tall so I needed something that was a nice size. I have decided that my goal is to purchase a new bag at least once a year!!! You girls will be a bad influence on me I can tell already!!! Now to just wait for the straps to color, I hate the light color in the beginning.
