Longchamps! (Which bag to buy?)

Which Longchamp should I buy?!

Hey everyone! I've been thinking about the future/college life.
So, I found a job- and being the shopoholic I am, I'm already researching ways I can spend it. The one thing that is definitely at the top of my list is a school bag for college- I'm sick of my navy Jansport backpack, it ruins outfits :(

BEFORE: (THE JANSPORT)

^My current backpack. Cost: $35


AFTER: (THE LONGCHAMP)
Now I've been searching online for the perfect college tote- plenty of people at my highschool already have longchamps, but since my income= me begging my parents, I could never get my hands on one. Now that I'm a little more financially independent, I'm determined to save up for a day-to-day college longchamp!

I'm more of a classic, will-match-everything type of girl. So I'm looking for versatile colors like grey, navy, brown, and black. These are my options so far:


Option #1: The grey "Planetes-Large" shopper longchamp.
Measurements: 12 1/2"W x 12"H x 7 1/2"D. (measures medium; don't know why it's called large then)
Cost: $168
Comments: I was instantly attracted to the 'planetes tonal' series of lonchamps- where the leather straps are the same color as the rest of the tote. The grey would look great with the navy peacoat I have...


Option #2: Black "Planetes Tonal" Tote, longchamp
Measurements: (Measures medium...but I've read from several sources online/pictures that the tote is actually only slightly smaller than the large- which I like!)
Cost: $168
Comments: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. It was love at first site. I really like that the straps are balck instead of brown like the common longchamp 'le plaige' bags. My concern is that I might look too dark ovrall if I use this bag- which although might sound silly, I don't want to look completely drab if I decide to wear a black coat. But still, my mouth is watering.


Option #3: Victoire Tote Bag, longchamp
Measurements: 12¼x12x7½ inch (color=lead)
Cost: $215
Comments: I love that it's not as common to see this tote, but still clearly longchamp. The horse rider symbol is pretty, I think, and I actually don't mind it being plastered unto the bag. I think I can try to work with this color if I wanted to.


Option #4: Le Pliage Hobo bag in black
Measurements: 14½ x 11 x 5½ inch
Cost: $195
Comments: I think that this bag looks better and bigger in real life than it does in the picture- one of my classmates owns one and I admired it for 1) Actually fitting folders/binders and 2) Seeming to be less of a strain than the bigger totes due to it's thick shoulder strap. It looked like it could even *squeeze* in my macbook, if that'll give you an idea of the size.


Option #5: The run-of-the-mill, "Le Plaige" large tote- black, navy, or chocolate


Measurements: 13"W x 13"H x 7 1/2"D
Cost: $145
Comments: I know every other girl in New York has one, but they are classic, durable, and great for carrying books. I'm heavily leaning towards the black and chocolate.

----------------------------

So, this is the favor I'm asking: Tell me what you think! Which one would be best for my next year at college?

Any input is much, much, much appreciated. And in case you wanted to know- I'm not sure what color my winter coat will be (if that affects your opinion). Probably navy, but also possibly black. I'm also a big fan of black and chocolate brown boots, and I like wearing denim jeans. Haha just giving more info in case you want to make a more educated decision :P

Thank you thank you thank you!

Why would you get a nylon bag? If you must, get the leather ones from Longchamp.

Hi...
I had a blog that I have not updated for 2 years! & I've finally got back on the game and noticed you were a follower on my old account (www.thisisadele.blogspot.com) Thought I'd let you know I have a new link (http://moltacuriosa.blogspot.com) :) - Its very empty right now!


Anyway! i'm in my second year of university now so I completely understand! I think the bags are great, very practical for college but my ultimate favourite is the second one! Im also a will-match-everything type of girl lol so I love the simpleness!
