ok girls, i've needed a black bag for approximately forever, and i really love this one, even though i know that some people think it has boobs ush:. actually, that was my initial reaction too, but i saw the large in person and the size is great for both shoulder and elbow wear, the leather is so soft and slouchy, and the whole construction of the bag was just beautiful. so hey, maybe i shouldn't fault it for having boobs, i have them too (actually, the boobs don't bother me, i just thought it was funny). i was also considering the MJ Elise in black patent, but i really think the botkier is more my style (plus it's only half the price of the MJ since active endeavors has a 20% off coupon and free shipping, making the bag approximately $550). i was getting dressed to go to dinner tonight in a jean skirt, white tank top, and thin black sweater and i went to choose my bag and thought 'i need that botkier. it would be perfect.' i've been thinking about it since i saw it IRL last week, and i love it, but is it a good choice? i would really like to decide and either order or not order before i go to bed tonight... thanks in advance girls, i really appreciate the help!
