and a dilemma. I am such an idiot. I am not sure that I like this bag. I know, I know...all the hype involved with the SO and all....but I am just not feeling the love. Wahhhhh. I'll refresh you all on the story of how I happened upon ordering this bag. For my 40th back in April, I purchased the Saleya MM. (the middle size Saleya). I loooooooved it! BUT, when I was carrying it around the house, the bottom of it seemed to be bulky right where it landed on my side and where my arm laid on it when my arm was down. I hemmed and hawed about it...and then decided to return it and SO the Cabas Mezzo in Damier. I figured it was similar in style, but it hangs a bit lower so the bulkiness was not an issue. I picked up the bag last Sunday and even then I knew that something was amiss as I didn't get all excited when I saw it. It was kind of like, oh, here it is. Ho hum. It just doesn't have the "cool & hip" appeal that the Saleya has. I love the rolled handles vs. the flat straps, I love the chunkier hardware vs. the more sedate style on the Mezzo. The one and only thing I didn't love on the Saleya was how it hung on me. But now I am wondering if that one thing can't be overlooked considering how I feel about the Mezzo. Don't get me wrong, the Mezzo is a beautiful bag, it just seems so much more reserved and fancy vs. the Saleya being more "me." I am torn as what to do. I just have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that I made a huge mistake. I can still return the Mezzo and get a credit for the 1st 50% deposit (non-refundable) and get a credit back to my charge card for the 2nd 50% balance I paid last Sunday. HELP!!! I will included pics of the Saleya that I had and returned, as well as the pics I took tonight of the Mezzo. Hubby is telling me to hurry up and get to bed (it's 1 AM here) so I apologize in advance for any typo's I didn't get to correct. PS~ sorry for the color of some of the Mezzo pics, I'm not really good at taking digital pics at night.
