I broke my ban! I already shared this with a few pfers, so... I forgot about the PH and the Cabas Mezzo/Piano after realizing I wanted medium-large bag (since I already have enough medium-sized bags and I don't like super-huge bags). After getting jealous over people's Petit Noes and regular Noes, I knew that the Noe was meant to be. Although I was intending to get a brand new bag, I realized that I can't keep myself away from these great deals I keep finding on eBay, and with the Noe, I'd rather have one used (since it has a vachetta bottom). Needless to say, I'm a Noe convert! This bag holds TONS. I tried to stuff as much things as possible, and even when I couldn't find anything else to put in it, there was still soooooo much more space! And the best part is that it doesn't feel heavy! I think it has to do with the thick strap...? To punish myself, I extended my ban to March, and as a present for getting into grad school, I'll get myself a brand new damier pochette! Esp. since 1) I'm a cheapskate :shame: , 2) I don't really need any larger LV bags at the moment, and 3) damier pieces are usually too expensive for me to justify getting used. I didn't attach pics 'cause when I resize them, they come out really small. I wanted to show you just how much I could put in; please keep in mind that I was taking pictures in a dark room and the patina is 2-3 shades darker than IRL (I hate my digicam because I can't take pictures close-up or too far away...and the colors never show up correctly). Inside: a 200-page notebook, LV catalog, agenda/diary, a sweater, sunnies, hairbrush, mints, cosmetic pouch (with my chapsticks, comb, and mirror), cles and keys, pencil case, pochette accessories (attached to the d-ring; contains tresor wallet, cell, lipgloss and pen).
