Hi! Thank you for the kind words. To be honest I’m not a huge fan of the Longchamp bags - maybe it was just overexposure to them while going to school in Boston. My go-to bag is the Botkier Valentina in black with gold hardware, which I got for my birthday last year and have used almost every day since. Is it for school? Given your budget I’d suggest something that will last you longer than the Longchamp, like this, this, or this. Hope this helps!
