I'm new here and needed some help in deciding which LV bag to purchase. This will be my first LV, although I've got quite a collection of Coach, Dooney and Bourke, Cynthia Rowley, and Prada. I'll be having knee surgery soon, so it has to be a shoulder bag. I'm trying to decide between Popincourt Haut and the Cabas Piano. I don't need anything too large, just big enough for the essentials. I'll be using this as a work/everyday bag. What do you girls think.

Sorry to hear about the knee surgery:sad: That sounds like no fun! I love love love my cabas piano. It's big enough for everything I need and I will be able to carry it forever.

hope everything turns out fine for you with your knee. The Popincourt is wonderful. What do you think about the babylone. That's a nice one, too.

Thanks for the input. I think the Babylone is too big. I really like the popincourt but it looks much more formal than the cabas piano, but I like that it has ajustable shoulder straps.

I love that one too!!! But, because of my knee injury I won't be going to the LV store, I'm going to order from eluxury, and I didn't see that one on the website.

Thanks, I must have missed it before. I also like the vertical one. It's hard to make a decision, they're all great. Has anyone order LV from eluxury before?

The vertical feels smaller, I tried them both on at LV in Dallas a week ago. It's a hair taller, but a hair less wide, so it's probably the same room inside. But I liked the bigger bottom for my things, that way stuff doesn't "stack" so much in there.
elux gets pretty get ratings around here, I haven't used them though.

I just can't seem to make a decision!!! It's either the Cabas Piano or the Popincourt Haut. I wish I could go to the LV store and check them both out before I buy, but I can't, so that's why I needed your opinions.

I would get the popincourt, I love the shape of it ! Maybe you should try them on in the store, so you can get a feel for the bags though.

I'm actually a VIP at Eluxury because I order from them all the time. In fact the only time I make a purchase at the LV boutique is if I can't get it from Eluxury. As a VIP member I get upgraded shipping and free returns, where as the closest LV boutique is 40mins away (without traffic).
