My desperate last minute purchases before price increase!

  1. Thank you to those who helped me decide on what accessories I should make before the big price hike that is in effective TODAY for leather goods! I have a 32 cm kelly and a 35 cm birkin (which were bought in less than 2 months within each other), both in neutral colors -- black kelly and chocolate birkin. So what I needed was to add some colors of the rainbow inside the bags... that means fun, bright accessories!!! It didn't work out that well... I wound up only buying one thing for inside the bag, the item that every tPFer told me to get -- a karo. There were two in fun colors, blue jean and orange, but they were in swift leather. The floopiness was already kicking in, and I didn't like that look. There were only 3 other colors in chevre mysore, so I picked the brightest one of all -- vermillon!!

    So I moved on to the next accessory... an H belt to match my bags!! The ideal would have been to get a black box/chocolate togo belt with PH and then buy an extra GH buckle, but apparently that is against H policy. (something about them afraid of people using their H buckles with regular leather belts, which is understandable!). After about 30 minutes of exhausting every single option, I took the coward's way out and bought TWO belts -- black box/marron fonce togo (? not sure about name of color, I was too excited at the time -- it's a deep red with orange undertone) with PH, and a gold box/chocolate epsom GH.

    It was almost time to pick up DD from school, so since DH was there, he threw in a beautiful scarf on top of the already over-my-budget visit... a beautiful jardins d'hiver in rose colorway... I love the pops of purple in the background!!

    I am now officially content with my meager H collection... Hopefully, I won't get the urge to buy more in the near future (aside from a few more scarves and twillies, that is)!
