Hi, I have been hard at work which is why some of you who responded to my previous threads haven't heard from me, and as a result I have managed to nab myself two of the bags I had been searching for in great desparation in the January sales, and managed to locate them separately from different websites, as they must have been customer returns..my problem now is that instead of helping me decide which to keep by having them both in front of me, I'm even more confused, as I like them both!! They are the mouse grey alyona and the mouse grey east west mix quilted tote. Both extremely popular, and both hard to find, and I CANNOT keep both! I really don't know cos they both have their own allure. The alyona is definitely more boxy and constructed of the two and holds it's shape well, while the mix quilt tote looks very subtle and classy. They are both similar in size and I can't think of processes of elimination!! Will I get more wear out of one rather than the other? Any alyona owners or mix quilt tote owners out there? I have a few days left before returning the alyona, and two weeks before returning the east west tote, so time is running out. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
