and the monogram Deauville and Epi Riviera called my name on the website.. I went to the store to look at them and also hoping to get some advice and other suggestions. I was looking for a bag that was smart and classy for work, but could possibly double as a travel beauty case.. that was not super necessary, but a plus. the SA I got (I had to wait in a line for 20 minutes!) is chinese (not to offend anyone, but as a possible explanaition for not understanding me), and sorta drifted off, when I tried to explain what I wanted , because she looked and talked like she didn't understand me and even though I know she has been the for years, she didn't know about the riviera bag, I had to show her from the catalogue.. and she didn't offer to show me some other suggestions, all in all not a very good trip to Vuitton. SA service wise.. I was SO torn for these two!! Plusses for the monogram Deauville: it matches my pegase and keepall, and for work it matches my agenda(s).. a bit more spacius than the Riviera. Negatives: Monogram canvas.. I still love it, but for an everyday bag, I am more fond of pther vuitton lines (SO many small teenage girls have stuff in the monogram canvas and their style downgrades the bags.. Plusses for the Riviera: SUPER classy bag, looks like a gorgeus big handbag (but still smaller than my speedy). I just love the epi line, it is SUPER nice and upgrades any outfit. Negatives: A bit more stiff, not as much room for papers and such. I ended up buying the Deauville, but I am still torn.. Should I keep the Deauville and buy a smaller, more 'flat' bag for work? (They didn't have the Croisette or the Saint-tropez in epi .. she didn't even look for it.) ARGH .. any thoughts, tips or just anything??
