I've decided to sell my Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag after only a short period of time with it because I can see that it's not going to be as great for heavy items as I thought. It's practically new, make me an offer. Or don't and save your money! Buy the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag here.
Let me start by saying any person who takes some time out of their day to visit this blog, read my posts, and then takes the time to comment is someone very important to me. I listened to all of your comments on my last post about the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag. (Quick summary: I accidentally purchased the Lady Bag in Sand after my credit card was saved in my browser but eventually returned it because I wanted to buy it only when I could do so in cash).
I wanted this bag for a while now, and not because it's the new hard-to-get thing, but because I have a lot of client-facing meetings or travel where carrying a backpack seemed a little too casual for business. So after returning the Lady Bag in Sand, I set aside some time to sell about 10-15 items from my closet in order to have the discretionary cash set aside to buy the Black Lady Bag as soon as I found some stock — which, as we all know, when it comes to Mansur Gavriel, buying one of their bags is a pretty tall freaking order.
Cut to me browsing The Line (a shop I know for sure sells the Mansur Gavriel Large Lady Bag in Black/Ballerina, the combination I was looking for), and bam. It was there. Did I have the cash to buy it now? Magically, yes. Thanks to your advice. And so I did. And you know what? It felt so much better than the last time I happened to get my hands on a Lady Bag — just like you all said.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you have already done the cost-benefit analysis of a new purchase, and your whole cost-per-wear breakdown makes financial sense, and then you have the cash reserves to buy it responsibly, go for it.
