I was in NM in Vegas the other day and I tried on this b-bag that I thought was the Purse, it didn't have a handle but it had the purse shape. But it seemed smaller than 11x17 though I didn't measure it. It seemed more like 9x12 I thought. It was in the truffle color.

So when I came home and looked up the Purse and saw that it was 11x17 I thought well that doesn't seem right. I must have been way off with estimating size. Because the Purse is the only style on LP's site with that shape and no strap (other than Shopping).

But then I saw this attached image on another website, and they called it the 'Shopper'. It's size is 8x12x3. So this is DEFINITELY more along the lines of the size that I tried on at NM. It fit right under my arm and reminded me of a slightly bigger First. But what is it? There's no 'Shopper' on LP's site. And the Shopping is much bigger than the Purse. I didn't know was a third style around that size with no strap.

Anyone? :confused1:

I attached the image that is supposedly of the 'Shopper' that is 8x12.

This Bag is the Purse...and I'm not sure but I think it was called the Shopper in the past...
Now it's discontinued...
and the Shopper is now another style without zipper...

okay but the Purse is 11x17 right?

the one I tried on at NM seemed much smaller, like 9x12.

and then this one was on bagborroworsteal listed as 8x12.

so it seemed like THIS one was the one i tried on. smaller. was there ever a smaller version of the Purse?

Hmm I can't really figure out what bag you are referring to. The one you posted is the purse... This one was smaller with no strap?? Could it be a make-up clutch? :confused1: IDK... but I'll be in Las Vegas in a few days and I'm def going to check out NM so I'll let you know if I see that and what it is. :smile:

Marae,
I could swear I saw the exact same bag today and I was thinking the same thing....that it seemed smaller than 11x17. The salesguy told me it was a new style but I don't think he sounded like he was too sure. This one I saw was white and then they also had a black one. It was cute. I had always thought I wouldn't like a purse because it would be too big but I liked this bag's size. I am interested in finding out too. I guess I could call the buyer at the store and ask her what it was.

No shoulder strap, you mean, right? I don't know, the purse generally strikes me as smaller than its official measurements, for some reason. My guess is they just measured it in a different way - rather than laid flat, and measured seam-to-seam, they measured the way it hangs with stuff in it, so it has depth as well as height and width (8x12x3). The purse used to be known as the shopper - then it was discontinued for a season or two, reintroduced as the purse, and now is discontinued again. The shoppING is a kind of squarish bag and it's pretty big.

after i saw this thread, i looked at my purse and i couldn't believe it is said to be 11x17! it seems smaller than that. the shopping is a really big bag...a lot bigger than the purse.

okay so maybe it IS the purse and it's just a weird measurement. i seriously loved this bag but i thought it seemed smaller than i thought a purse was.

the funny thing was the SA at NM was pretty clueless..she looked it up for me and the picture had a really long name but the first word was 'purse'. so i said okay it's the purse style. and she's like uhh yeah i guess. just as clueless as me! :biggrin:

then when i got home and checked out LP's site and saw the purse was technically measured at 11x17 i was thinking NO WAY was that the bag i tried on. then i saw that picture on bbs called the 'shopper' and i was even more confused. but it sounds like it's a purse after all.

in any case i loved it. i am so disappointed they are discontinuing it and hope i can get one on ebay at some point in the future. the truffle color was perfect for that style i thought! mmm!!

thanks gals!! mystery solved?! purse yet with smallish measurements, hehe.

pewter, please do check it out when you are there, and report back ... hehehe.
