As also prefer a bag without a scarf. But you don't have to use this bandeau only on a bag. I love this leopard bandeau, IMO it is this one is the most versatile and beautiful from LV. If I ever buy a bandeau, it will be this one. Congrats!
First, I have this bandeau and love it. The hot pink signature will pick up the color on the interior of your (amazing!) bag. Second, I don't think your bag needs this touch, but if you are wanting to protect the handle, this one looks very nice. I love animal prints. You would have a number of options....have fun!
