I've already posted this shameful confession:shame: elsewhere but I think the sorry story might get buried on the thread I posted on. Forgive me if you read this twice but I just need to get this off my chest (and hopefully get a word of support from those TPF'ers that might also have done a spot of bag juggling in their time and will therefore empathise with this ridiculous mess!) So, here's the story ( be warned, it's a LONG one)...I chose a Patent Quilted Bay (Noir) from the Sacoche sale for my DH to give me for Xmas. I really wanted the Medium size but it was sold out, so I opted for the Large version which I'd never seen IRL (why oh why didn't I ask Irene for the measurements ?). When it arrived I gave it the quick once over (it's a very beautiful bag), clocked that is was much bigger than the Medium version but didn't try it on, just gave it straight back to DH to wrap up for Xmas. In the meantime I fell for the Green Patent Medium version that was in the AR sale and self-gifted it for Xmas. It arrived and I totally loved it (I'm sure some of you have probably seen my modelling pics by now). Kept thinking about the size of the DH's Large Bay and doubt started gnawing away at me:s until I dug out the box (luckily it wasn't wrapped yet) and sneaked another look. Then I tried it on and it was just ENORMOUS and looked ridiculous on me (I'm only little - 5ft 4in).I seemed to remember another TPF'er describing this bag as more like 'luggage' which is absolutely spot-on. Anyway, I just knew I'd never use it. Finally got a hold of Irene after many failed attempts ( Irene is super-helpful but very hard to track down sometimes) and she kindly agreed to exchange it, but when she sent me the photos of what was left in the sale, there wasn't anything that really captured my heart. In the end, I decided to opt for the Moka Rectangular Quilted Bay. I already had a Medium size Moka Bay ( are you still with me dear reader ?I know this is ridiculously complicated!) and although I'd spent alot of time staring at it, I fortunately hadn't used it yet. Decided I couldn't justify having two Moka Quilted Bays,so I took the Medium size one back to the store and got a refund. At this point I was feeling better about the whole thing and then....I spotted the Medium Patent Noir version in the LVR sale....and OMG, I took leave of my senses and bought it. So now, I've got the Large version waiting to go back to Sacoche, the Rectangular version on the way once the other one is returned and the Noir Medium Patent en route from LVR. What a mess. From now on and for the forseeable future I am on a TOTAL BAG BAN (Please help me with this ladies...I can't be trusted to do this on my own).
