I became convinced that I "needed" a red caviar old medium boy in my life. This revelation coincided nicely with saks' triple points/bonus points event so I would also get a $500 or so gift card plus I had some points to use which would make the bag less than $4000. Saks only had a small and new medium. So, I was seriously considering the small because new med was too big for my liking. I went into saks NYC to try on the small and I realized that it was the same size as my mini so that was immediately out. No $4000 minis for me. I tried on other colors in the old medium size and I really liked how cool and edgy the bag felt. I loved the chunky chain but couldn't picture myself wearing it as a senior citizen (I delusionally tell myself these bags are timeless to justify the ridiculous prices.) Others have spoken about the lack of leather lining which was striking especially since my mini that was close to half the price is leather lined. Now, I still love the boy and may very well get one in the near future and I will just have to accept that it may never be a family heirloom but I do love it right now. I just wanted to know has anyone else who loved the boy had difficulty pulling the trigger on buying one? What did you end up doing?
