Depite price increases the next bag i am buying is the purple east west bag. i have gone on a total ban to save, and it will be my reward for getting through this hellish 3rd semester of nursing school. I think about getting a used east west in another color but i really just want a new purple one so i am starting my savings fund for what i really want. Wish me luck ladies!! its gonna take me alot of self dicipline.
