I know that distinction is different for everyone. I started a similar thread 3.5 years and and finished reading it, it was fun! Since that time, I’ve purchased a few Michael Kors and Cosch’s that I love for different functions and seasons. I have become a purse fanatic in my 60’s after carrying cheap ones all my life, I used to not care about them other than style and function.
So now, I’m going to buy my first high-end purse and am looking for opinions. It’s between Gucci and YSL, the smaller crossbody. I’m looking for something to carry in the evenings or someplace special for day. I’m not looking for an everyday purse. Before I show you my choices, this is my everyday purse in the fall and winter. I purchased last fall and am love with it.
I have a Michael Kors beige Ginny crossbody, and a black one that is edgy. I see it’s on sale and that ticks me off because I paid full price last November and didn’t get to wear it much before the pandemic. I’m not a black purse person, I don’t wear much of that color. But this super bling one spoke to me.
Ok…now on to my dilemma. Of the Gucci ones, they only come in 4 colors. Black, Red, Dusty Rose and Creamy White. I love the creamy white but I’m hearing horror stories of black and blue jean transfer. The only 2 options for me are the black and white. I keep thinking a black purse like this is classic, maybe I should do it. But I do really like the white one in this style.
I also love this YSL, except it’s smaller. But I love the wine color. Again, the black may be smarter and I do think it looks elegant in black, more so than the Gucci. Wine is one of my favorite colors, but maybe I can just buy that color in a cheaper purse. I think it cones in the white too, but there’s always that color transfer issue.
It’s early in the morning so sorry for the rambling. I guess I’m just thinking this through and would like someone’s help. I’ve never purchased anything this expensive before “just because” I want it.
