I am still on a quest to find a nice medium to large size bag in the mono canvas. I tried the Lockit Vertical for awhile, but found it to be too big. Then, I tried the Cabas Piano, and found it to be a bit smaller than I like. So... I really like the look of the Deauville, and wondered two things: 1) do many of you carry the bag as an everyday handbag, or more as the make-up/carry-on bag it is designed to be; and 2) for those that carry it as an everyday bag, is it roomy and easy to access your "stuff?" Thank you for your input! I am such a fickle LV addict! I have an Epi Petit Noe that I am in love with and won't part with, and am in love with the Damier Hampstead MM (am going to purchase that next week), but I am yet to find the "perfect" mono canvas bag for me. Maybe one of these days Thanks again!
