So, after a bit of research and financial planning (and maybe a talk with my parents:shame I've figured out that I can allow myself to get a new bag for university Of course, being me and indesicive, I have no idea what to get! I'm currently thinking of the following: Mono Speedy This bag is a classic and everybody should have one, and I really love it (I have a perfo already) and think it's a brilliant bag. I used my perfo in high school a bit, and it's a perfect school bag for those days I didn't have to carry my computer (I have a 12" powerbook that was just too big, and is thinking of getting a 13" macbook). The price is also an aspect. If I get it, I can afford to get a wallet as well, which I really feel that I need, but on the other hand, the fact that it's cheap makes me want to put it off, as it's easier to save up for it later than it would be to save for a $1000 bag. Red epi Noe I've dreamed of this bag for almost a year now, and I love how beautiful it is and I was planning on getting it for my first paycheck (however, my job turned out to be a nightmare, so I quit before I got that far). However, I've never owned a regular noe, so can anybody tell me if it seem practical for schoolwork? As mentioned above, I have a 12" powerbook that I tend to haul with me and will have books. Weight isn't really as important as it is that it should look good. I also like that it's fairily neutral and doesn't scream LV which won't draw too much attention. Damier Bastille I really like messenger style bags, and again, I like that it doesn't scream "LV". However, I'm one of those who get sore shoulders after carrying one around for too long.. I really think it has a cool look and have been wanting one for quite a while. Something else Otherwise, I wouldn't mind getting another type of speedy (Damier, MC, azur, epi) although they aren't as prioritized as the mono. I'm also drooling over the BH, and don't mind the cabas bags or the mono messenger bag (I can't remember its name, but it's not the bosphore, but the one that looks more like a mono version of the bastille) So, any inputs?
