^ Colabear, have you seen the bag in person or just online? 16X12 is probably measured when the bag is empty and flat; you'll lose an inch or two when you fill it up with stuff. You've also got a rounded bottom (slightly tapered), as well as a larger handle/strap drop than a comparable briefcase. You'd be amazed what an inch or two of depth/height or in the strap drop can do to separate "men's tote" and "women's purse." Verdict: I'd avoid; I think this one is definitely...
Given all the "big" brand price increases, Bea becomes a better and better option all the time. Hope readers will take a look at her goods!
BV is always a good bet. The quality is good, the styling is timeless, and in Japan right now it's one of the big "IT" brands that will fetch a decent price at the Recycle shops should you decide to part with it. LV, Prada, etc. have sort of run their course and look a little 'old hat.' Tomas Maier has done a great job of keeping the brand interesting and relevant without jumping the shark. He consistently produces nice collections that show an obvious DNA to the brand,...

It's an interesting and fairly complex issue to discuss. I can see both of your points and think that perhaps you both are correct, but are viewing the brand from different angles. Comparing the exemplary pieces from each collection, probably babar is correct. Some of the really key SLP pieces are, no doubt, pretty good. On the other hand, taking the "brand" as a whole and its full range of products... I tend to side with DesignerValet. I was really, really...
^I dish out the negatives re: Gucci all the time, but I must admit a soft spot for the Diamante bags and know that when Gucci wants, they can definitely make a nice bag. I had this soft briefcase from 2010 in that pattern in fabric and it was a lot of fun (though ultimately I didn't like how the tough leather/soft fabric moved/wore together and so got rid of it). Enjoy your bag and hope you have lots of good travel with it.
Agreed; that's a beauty.
RJ was a nice one; like Cuiron and BelAmi it used to be one of those you could find easily and very cheaply (IIRC I got my 50ml bottles for about $10 each). Not so today! But, it's a nice scent and got lots of compliments. Shalimar for me today... nothing surprising (haha). I keep mentioning it only in hopes that all of you guys will forget that your grandmother loved it and try it yourselves.
Can't wait to see the designs! A weekender will really round out your collection.
Haha. Ala habit rouge, I don't know if I've shared (I probably have) the story of the French aristocrat/he-devil in my college dorm who bathed once a week in the shower, favored Le Pen, paid his college fees in cash, and crashed his computer with torture porn... but bathed daily in habit rouge. To this day, the whiff of it makes me gag. A gorgeous scent, sadly ruined by a horrible little man (may he live in interesting times).Love Tom Ford's BO (haha). ps today my SOTD...
