Hi ladies, I would really appreciate your advice. I am a small purse girl due to back problems and I have mono and DE Evas that I use for traveling, going out etc depending on the weather. I also just bought the new mono pochette for casual use as I feel Eva is a little too dressy for the many days when all I do is school drop off/ pick up and grocery store runs. But I'm living in a very rainy, snowy corner of Europe for the next few months until we move back to California next summer, and I really don't want to use ( and potentially ruin the vachetta on) my new mono pochette in this bad weather. I know the new DE pochette is coming out in October. I am considering buying it. Here's the rub- no offense to anyone here, but I don't actually like DE! I only bought the DE Eva for practicality in bad weather- and it has been really great for that. But I much prefer mono. What should I do? I could use an old Kate Spade bag for daily casual wear this winter OR buy the new DE pochette and use it. I could probably use it on casual rainy days back home in California too. Would any of you buy a bag you didn't love for practical reasons? Or should I just manage with Kate Spade this year and maybe buy a casual rain proof small Tory Burch or something similar in a fun color when I move home? It would probably cost about the same so it's not a money issue. Thank you so much in advance for your help!
