Hi everyone! 9 days and counting until I board the plane for my first trip to Paris! In order to get in the spirit of the trip, here are 3 new arrivals designed to make the vacation more enjoyable: a bearn tri-fold wallet in blue atoll/gold HW, an Ulysse notebook in bleu electrique togo, and an Alfred messenger bag in black clemence! The bearn has great capacity (and I've always wanted a piece in blue atoll, a color I adore), the notebook will be good for mid-afternoon ruminations whilst at an outdoor coffee shop or cafe, and the Alfred...well, I was stunned (in a good way) at how compact it is! The capacity is great but it is "just enough". It'll fit perfectly under the seat in front of me on the plane and, as it is a messenger style, won't be unwieldy under my arm/body...and ofc, the clemence is just so soft and exquisite to the touch... My custom Divide and Conquer bag organizer is due to arrive Monday and that'll give the Alfred some helpful structure (and more storage pockets for me!). :smile::smile::smile::smile:

Ah I'm so interested to hear about your perceptions of the 3 H locations! Did you already discuss this in another thread? I'll look up your comments, if so!

Etoile, you are always such a dear...all of your words always just radiate kindness. Thank you so much! I've eyed the alfred for many years and have always found the minimalistic quality you refer to so attractive. It has almost no hardware- originally I didn't know if I'd like that (I just love how H hardware catches light and gleams), but with this style it is perfect. Being clemence, it truly is a slouchy bag so the bag organizer is an absolute must. I can't wait to see how it'll look once the organizer is in there. I'm so grateful to Connie at Divide&Conquer at Etsy for making a custom one for me so fast- it should arrive Monday.

I always thought that messenger bags needed to be big until this arrived and now I can see the value of a smaller bag (and how much wasted space goes into many men's messenger bag styles). I'm not a huge guy (5'9", 147 pds) so the smaller size works so much better on my frame.
