Just did the deed!! Taking all the advice and encouragement offered me here on the forum, I went to eluxury and bought the LV EPI Alma in Myrtille!!! It's my first LV, so the sticker shock is there, but I guess that's good or this could become habit forming!!! On a sidenote, I have to say I agree with everyone else regarding the sales taxes in CA--they are really a drag!! Anyway, I'm thrilled beyond measure about the bag, and HAD to tell the only folks I knew of who would appreciate the gloriousness of this moment!!
