Are there any plume-llovers around? What are the pros and cons? Any leather/color recommendations?
Pampered, I don't own a Plume, but here's a recent Plume discussion:
And thanks to that notorious shopmom, I craved a Plume Elan and was finally satisfied this week.
What a dream bag!
Everything she said is true, I cannot argue the Plume Elan's case more clearly - here's shopmom's most articulate thread:
Why do you ask??
Thanks Katel, I tried doing a search but nothing came up more recent than last December. I love your Elan. The one I am considering is a regular one, not Elan. Maybe I like yours better.
I am a plume lover as well! The differences beyond the shape, is that the elan doesn't have protective feet...which is something I prefer...mine is the 28cm size, rouge h chamonix with white stitching - I have to say I've bought and sold quite a few bags in the past year and I do believe this one has stayed with me throughout - must be !
I'm another Plume lover! The style can hold a lot while remaining light and manageable. Katel, SM and Shoes, I LOVE your Plumes!!
Love those plumes, ladies!
Katel, your new baby is gorgeous!!!
Yes btw Katel! Gorgeous!!!
Hi, I just bought a Plume a month ago. I love it...mine is a 32cm rouge vf. It hold so much, in fact I can't believe how much I can get in the Plume.
In fact, I carry the Plume more than my black box Kelly. Plus I like the fact that the Plume is more understated than a Kelly or a Birkin!
Shopmom, Katel and Shoes, I love all of you bags. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures. Mollyand jake, yours sounds beautiful. I love rouge vif. The one I am thinking about is 28cm --not elan-- chevre in a bright color. Do you get as much enjoyment out of carrying the plume as a kelly or birkin? A new plume is in the same price range as a kelly. Do you think the style is classic enough for that investment?
lovely plume elan ,how much is it???
My plume was about 5500 last summer - I think kellys are more around 7? IMO - it really depends what kind of person you are! Some people love the kelly - some the birkin - I love the bags like the plume and bolide that are under the radar a bit -- and I have carried the plume on a trip and it was very nice - it's very lightweight to carry too!
It ARRIVED!!!!!!! It's LOVELY, Kate!!!! It's so beautiful with your Pegasus........Congratulations! Wear it in the best of health and I'll bet you reach for it more than you think!!!!!
I can't praise the Plume enough. I first fell in love with the Plume after seeing this picture below and I was a gonner! It was only after trying a few on that I realized that I do much better with the Elan than the 28cm as it looked just a bit too boxy for my frame. Otherwise, I'd own a 28cm right this minute!!!! (and I STILL might have to go for it because every time I see this picture, I drool all over my keyboard.....)
^^I still love that pic as well shopmom!!
^^^ Yum-O! Me too!
Everyone's Plumes are SO gorgeous!
Thanks all for the nice compliments; I'm feeling very thankful for landing this one.
Keep us posted, Pampered, on your Plume-to-be, OK?
