and three items you weren't interested in until you saw them IRL: I thought I liked, until I saw them IRL: 1.) The groom line: they are cute, but the image looks like it could rub off easily. Also, I could use my money towards another bag for the price of some of the wallets. 2.) The Mono Papillon 30: I like the shape of the bag, and the baby papillon, but the mono doesn't do the shape justice. The papillon is much cuter in the Damier canvas. 3.) Colored Vernis: I like the Framboise and Indigo colors, but for some reason, I am only attracted to patent leather if it is black; everything else looks like plastic to me. I didn't like the following bags, until I saw them IRL: 1.) The MC Speedy: I hated the bag when I saw it on Jessica Simpson, but when the hype died down, and I saw it IRL, I fell in love with the bag. 2.) The Noe: I first associated the Noe with old ladies at the market, but I like the casual shape and the fact that it makes a sturdy, knock-around bag. It also looks great with a simple tee and jeans. 3.) The Denim line (Baggy PM): Hated, hated, hated this line when it first came out because I thought it was overpriced, but the bag is stylish and casual. I have gotten my money's worth, and the most compliments, with this bag.
