Ms. Rive Gauche is on her way to my house!!! She should be here on Friday. I have really upped the anty on my bags with this purchase. This is far and away the most expensive bag I have every bought (well, not that far from my teal balenciaga city or the special order LV Cabas mezzo in Damier) but it feels like it... It IS a CLASSIC and it is the only black bag I own and will be utilitze for work, elegantly escorting my laptop to and from work.... so I guess I can justifiy blowing it all on a bag, even though I probably could have replaced all the bedroom windows in my house for that. I feel much better now, thank you for letting me confess my guilt.
