i went to return the large black arena day sac with the giant gold hardware today...i guess i wasn't totally in love with it...when i was at the store, i saw a new bbag, in blue and in brown (i'm sure there are more sophisticated names for them, but i'm new to bbags and don't know them yet)...they had a wide strap that could be adjusted and worn cross body, there's no zipper at the top, and the hardward was giant silver...i talked to the SA and let her know i was hard on my bags and she said that bbags can't take that kind of wear!!! so, now i'm looking for help naming the bag and wondering if bbags can take that kind of wear...it's not like i take them rock climbing! i'm a teacher and they go under the desk, on the seat next to me in the car, but i don't baby my bags...is this bag right for me? it's really gorgeous but i don't want to spend over 1K for a bag that i can't use every day...HELP!!!! thanks! everyone on this forum has been really great with opinions!!!
