I agree that the black can look a little harsh, especially in the Le talenteux, because it's so small, with all the hardware. I don't find this to be the case with in the L-empanoui, I guess due to the proportions of it. I can't wait to get my new bag. The backpack will go back this weekend, the hubby insisted on this. I won't be able to purchase anything for awaile though, so i'll have to just enjoy everyone else's purchases vicariously. I'll learn how to download pictures so that I can share this joy with you all. Thanks to everyone for all your help. I couldn'y have done it alone, and you know that my hubby is no real help. He doesn't support this new habit at all!
Alright, I just did it. "And the verdict is......white le talentoux!" I'm feeling pretty good about it. By the way, elux is having a free shipping promo with code LEAP through Mar 20. I got a great deal by shopping through them, no shipping or taxes. I feel like I got a louis on sale, which never happens.
