Latest addition to my collection

First time buying from a resale site and not from a Loewe store or a department store. Been wanting a two-toned mini gate and I don’t like the current color combinations so I had to hunt for this. I am fairly happy with it but I’d like to ask for opinions if there are any red flags? It’s been authenticated but still wanted to get some input from TPF members especially those who have an old dual mini gate. Thank you so much in advance 😊.

Delightful MM, Graceful MM, or Soffi- which do you prefer?

I’m looking for a hobo in Damier Azur and I *think* I have it narrowed down to these three. I love the Artsy, too, but I’ve read the handle is uncomfortable for wearing on the shoulder. Between the Delightful MM, Graceful MM, and Soffi, which do you love the most?

For reference, I am a mom to two toddlers and would like something that’s a little roomy.

Thank you for your help!

Help me choose a daily bag that can fit a mirrorless camera!

Hi everyone! I have a Sony A7RV that I typically use with a 24-70mm lens. It’s about 3.12 lbs all together. So far I’ve been using “camera bags” from camera bag brands such as Peak Design and WANDRD for the functionality, but I really miss being able to use purses/bags that I actually enjoy carrying for the aesthetic and the joy they bring me. However, selecting a practical and functional option is also very important to me, as I have noticed over the years that I end up not using bags that I adore design-wise if I don’t find them practical in the day-to-day.

My considerations are:
  • Has a thick/comfortable strap, or at least a removable strap that I could replace with something more comfortable
  • Is able to fit my camera and hold the weight without being damaged (so nothing ‘fragile’ that has to be babied); I will be using a camera cube or some sort of bag insert to help protect the camera
  • Has some organizational pockets and remaining capacity (after the camera is inside) for daily carry items such as wallet, phone, sunglasses, wipes, lip products, sunscreen, medicine, water bottle, etc
  • No “open” tops (I prefer a zipper or flap with magnetic/turnlock closure)
  • As lightweight as possible, so I am definitely considering nylon/econyl. I love the look of leather, but am looking for light leather options if that’s the case.

Are there any bags you would recommend based on the above? A few that I’ve been considering are as follows (in order of my preference at the moment), but I’d love to hear other ideas, or your thoughts on these options:
  • Saint Laurent Niki (Men’s version, since the Women’s has a chain strap) in Grained Leather (it was scrumptious when I saw it in store) or Econyl
  • Mulberry Alexa (felt like beautiful but light leather when I looked in store)
  • Givenchy Triangle Backpack (it’s really a sling, though) in Nylon - in either Medium or Large
  • Balenciaga City
Thanks for reading!

Shiny croc and bag charm interactions (dulling?)

For those that own shiny croc bags and use bag charms: Have you had any issues with dulling of the hide under the charm over time?

I haven’t had any issues with my Himalayan croc and it’s charm rubbing but I think matte leather would be less of an issue. …Especially with how light plays on shiny croc I fear a dull spot might be a potential eyesore.

I’m currently waffling between commissioning a matching charm for my shiny porosus bag or skipping it.

Thanks ahead

Nautical Neverfull MM

Thanks so much for posting a pic of your CarryAll in this fabric. Its gorgeous! I actually might get this purse instead of the Neverfull now after seeing yours. I dont own any CarryAlls so this would be my first. I like that it comes in the PM size too.
How does the CarryAll compare size wise to the Neverfull? I love this fabric and would love to have either this or the Neverfull. Am I correct that the CarryAll has feet? That would be an advantage over the Neverfull especially in this light fabric. It is so pretty in person.

The carryall PM is a bit smaller than the Neverfull MM. Sometimes I feel like the Neverfull is too big for most days, but a tiny bag is too small. The CarryAll PM is in the middle. It’s a good size for an everyday bag.

It does have feet on the bottom and somehow with the way it’s constructed the bottom doesn’t sag (so no “hobo bag” look like a Graceful). It looks very nice when worn.

Rejuvenation in Seoul. A Personal Journey Through Male Plastic Surgery

I’m thrilled to share my recent plastic surgery experience in Seoul. As a mature male battling saggy eyelids, prominent eye bags, and loose skin around my cheeks, chin, and neck, I decided it was time for a change. My journey led me to View Plastic Surgery Clinic, where I underwent a face and neck lift, face liposuction, submentoplasty, and lower blepharoplasty with ptosis correction.

Like many, I wasn’t satisfied with looking perpetually tired. Taking responsibility for our appearance and health, both physical and mental, is crucial. I had worked hard and deserved to reward myself with a rejuvenated look. After extensive research into clinics in Thailand and Korea, I discovered View Plastic Surgery Clinic through Google, listed among the top five clinics in Korea.

My initial contact was with Jenny via WhatsApp. She promptly responded with recommendations tailored to my needs. Throughout the process, Jenny and her team, including Julia, Namun, Maria, and Kieun, were incredibly supportive, ensuring clear communication.

Upon my arrival, a thorough blood test was conducted to confirm my health status. I then met Dr. Yi Tae Min, the brilliant surgeon who would handle my procedures. Jenny and her team facilitated our discussions, ensuring my requests were communicated effectively.

Before the surgery, I had two days to acclimate and enjoy some sightseeing. On the third day, I underwent a nine-hour operation. The care I received post-surgery was exceptional; I spent a night in the hospital under attentive supervision. By the fourth day, I was back at my hotel, safe and sound, with a clear post-op plan.

The recovery process was smooth. On the eighth day, stitches from my eyes were removed, followed by the removal of the remaining stitches on the thirteenth day. Although the first few days were challenging, the overall experience was positive. I even managed to explore Seoul and savor the local cuisine, guided by recommendations from Jenny and her team.

Staying at the LYJ Gangnam Premium The Designers hotel, located conveniently near the View clinic and the Sinnonhyeon train station, made my stay comfortable and accessible. The area boasted numerous restaurants and convenience stores, perfect for any visitor.

Today marks the 23rd day of my recovery. My eyes are looking significantly better, with noticeable improvements each day. While other areas are still swollen, I am confident in the fantastic work done by Dr. Yi Tae Min and the dedicated English-speaking team.

I recommend View Plastic Surgery Clinic, as it is clinic and hospital together in one very tall building, I also wholeheartedly recommend particularly Dr. Yi Tae Min for face and neck lifts, liposuction, and eye surgeries. For English-speaking consultations, look for Jenny, Julia, Namun, Maria, and Kieun. I hope my story helps anyone considering a similar journey to rejuvenation.

Augustinus Bader x Sofia Coppola

Town & Country: Sofia Coppola Has Created the Perfect Tinted Lip Balm

"Coppola, a fan of Bader’s cult-favorite Rich Cream, initiated the partnership herself—writing to Bader and asking if they would consider making a lip balm in her favorite tint. Not only did the brand say yes, but the project grew into a trio of three ultra-pretty, ultra-wearable cool girl shades.

Shade 1, a dark pink, is based on a sheer lipstick that Coppola used to buy in France, but which was discontinued. “It was a favorite that I used to get at a drugstore in Paris,” she says. “I hoarded it, but eventually it ran out. “ Shade 2, a punchy coral, “is based on a color that I like when at the beach,” she says, and Shade 3, a darker plum, is for when you want “a color that looks like a deeper tint of your lips.” The nourishing formula contains Bader’s proprietary anti-aging complex TFC8® as well as castor seed oil, shea butter, and vitamin E. “It feels rich and hydrating, it’s not too shiny, and the sleek packaging is chic and nice to pull out of your bag,” Coppola says."

Have any of you had the chance to try these? I picked up the coral color and absolutely love it! :heart:

Nappa vs Patent

I don't own any Kates but I have Iriza's.
Iriza pumps do have a gap on the size that gives the foot more room, as opposed to a Kate that completely closes around the foot.

Iriza nude patent size 37, 100mm
Iriza black nappa size 37.5, 85mm
(My true size for most heels are 37.5)

Personally I think the 37.5 in nappa are a tad too big. It's not slipping out when I walk but I do notice the difference. If I buy another pair in nappa leather I would go for 37.

However, even each pair of heels varies in size slightly. I recently tried on a pair of 100mm, black patent Iriza's in 37.5 and I found it to be quite snug even though I own a pair in a 37.

If you can return it easily, you can get them to try on and make sure they fit.
Otherwise, for any pair of heels, I'd rather try on in stores and buy the pair that fits my feet the best.
