Carrying a pochette on its own... dinky?

  1. Hi girls!

    I'm just wondering how you feel about the original monogram pochette being carried as its own little purse. Do you feel like it's a dinky little bag that's meant only to be an accessory? Do you actually ever carry yours by itself? Do you think it's a great little purse?

    Anyway, I love the idea of a tiny bag like the pochette but I think I might go for the less ubiquitous Recital.

    What do you ladies think?
     
  2. I always carry it by itself, but I guess that would probably be a personal preference thing since a lot of ladies like larger bags that can hold more. Plus the pochette's strap is a little short, I always carry mine with the pochette extender keyring.
     
  3. I don't think it looks dinky, only b/c maybe I'm used to seeing many girls wear it that way. It actually fits a wallet, keychain holder, lipliner, lipstick and a pressed powder compact. Although I usually keep mine inside a bigger bag, I do find myself taking it out when I need to run a quick errand.

    I think the Recital is gorgeous and very chic! I love how the top opens and the lining of it. If I were to get either one for a small bag to wear on its own, I'd jump on the Recital!
     
  4. This will be my next purchase, hopefully soon! I plan to carry it by itself , because a lot of times when I am just going to the store or a late night movie or something I don't want to take put a purse and just stuff everything in the pockets of my huge winter coats. But I can't do that in the summer. I think it looks really cute carried by itself, but I would probably hold it more like a clutch
     
  5. I've always used the pochette as a little purse on its own. So many people are doing the whole wristlet/clutch thing, so I don't think it looks out of place.
     
  6. I think it can be used on it's own. It does hold a lot.
     
  7. It surprises me that with the massive collections a lot of you girls have you'd still use the Pochette at all. Speaks well of the bag!
     
  8. I have the Cherry Blossom pochette and I think its meant to be worn on its own b/c of the bow on it. Seems like a lot of detail for something kept hidden inside a bag.
     
  9. I love clutches. I was always thinking about getting one just to have and to put inside a bigger bag. I would also use it more as a clutch but I think it's really cute. It's grown on me the more I see it.
     
  10. I am lusting after the new Charms Pouchette. My SA will be getting a call from me today. Its a really cute line. I like the Plate too.
    Will it ever end!!!!!!

  11. I think the pochette is one of my best LV purchase. I travel a lot for work and it's the only purse I bring because I can pack it inside my laptop bag. I also use it when going out at night to a club b/c I don't have to worry about it getting dirty and it's easy to hold on to on the dance floor. I guess I consider it my thrasher designer bag.
     
  12. I see people carry that pochette by itself all the time. It's great for a night on the town, you don't have much stuff to put in, beside a cell fone, lipstick, some cash, etc..
     
  13. Charms pochette? Wha?:blink:
     
  14. im curious to what the Charms line looks like also :blink:
     
  15. I love the pochette. I have the cherry blossom one and the regular and always use them in the summer.
