Buyer's Remorse....or is it Indecisiveness?!

  1. Over at PurseBlog, we started a new series called Closet Confessionals in which we examine how readers and TPFers afford their bag addictions. Read about it in this intro article and submit your own confessional here. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. As many of you know...I purchased the Louis Vuitton Popincourt Haute a few days ago. I've been trying it with various items in my wardbrobe, but it seems a bit too sophisticated for me. I am 23 and in college in Southern California. My style is much more laid bag (I tend to wear large hobos or handbags like the Botkier clyde). Do you think I should exchange the popincourt for the Batignolles horizontal instead? That batignolles is less structured, a bit bigger, and overall looks more casual than the popincourt.

    I'm not sure if this is buyer's remorse, or buyer's indecisiveness! :shame:

  2. Hard choice...both look very similar. Did you contemplate between the two for a long time? I know that I sometimes have the same problem when it comes to handbags. It looks like the second one may be a bit less structured, and maybe fit into your style a bit more? I'm definitely not an LV expert here, but I'm sure other people will offer better advice. Let us know what you decide to do.
     
  3. Well, I did debate for awhile...but the people in the store were commenting on the popincourt like crazy!! "Oohs.." "Ahhhs!" Peer pressure.....?? :wacko: The popincourt is a beautiful bag in its own right, I'm just not sure if its the best for me.
     
  4. Too sophisticated?! I'm not much older than you and I think of the bag the opposite way. I have the Haut and I wear it with anything. I rarely dress up...to me, other than work, dress up is nice jeans and sexy boots. So I'm wearing the Haut with AF1, jeans, timbs, sweats...i could care less what i wear with it. But then again, that's just me, so it may not be the bag for you...I'd take it back but I wouldn't exchange it right away for the Batignolles...If I were you I'd try on several different styles (make sure to put your stuff inside!) and think on it a couple of days. I think the 30 is a very laid back bag, have you tried that?
     
  5. Too funny b/c I posted a new thread about the same thing! I went into LV today and have buyer's indecisiveness too!;) I got the damier Ribera MM but it's really starting to grow on me. With that said, have you tried wearing it w/ different kinds of outfits and styles? If you just can't seem to make it work, I would suggest either the Batignolles Vertical or Horizontal. When I looked at those today, they felt a little less structured and the canvas seemed to have a little more "give" , make sense?
     
  6. I think that both bags would transition well from day to night, casual to formal. That said, I think that I think that you should go with your gut feeling, as to how much you like the popincourt; if you don't like it or feel awkward carrying it, you won't wear it, so you might as well go and exchange it for the batignolles.
     
  7. I have both in my home (my horizontal and the haut that I gave my grandmother). They are both great bags, I personally liked the horizontal more because I bought it for school, but the haut seems more a cool everyday bag :biggrin:
     
  8. I like both. If you are using the horizontal for school and eventually work I know Pseub loves hers. If you are going to use it for going out and running around I would keep the haut. You can eventually purchase the other and won't be 23 for ever.
     
  9. I think either bag would go with casual attire. If "you" think the the Batignolles is more your style then by all means exchange the bag. I think since you are used to carrying hobos and Botkier style bags, you've gotten used to that style and this is a change. You have some time to return it so carry the one you have for a week and see if it grows on you.
     
  10. The Batignolles Horizontal is probably a bit less structured. I've found it to be very versatile and a comfortable bag to carry. Some people don't like that the top does not zip (closes with a clasp) but I haven't found that to be a problem. It's big enough to hold files and notepads if I have to attend meetings outside the office, but doesn't feel like a huge bag, even when I'm not carrying as much stuff.
     
  11. A major thing for me is the top zip of the popincourt. I think my things would spill out in the horizontal, especially in the car. Also I feel more safe from pick-pocketers with the zip.

    And the little dangling orbs on the popincourt are so cute!

    I think you made the right decision with the popincourt.
     
  12. i LOVE the popincourt and im only 16. i would keep it it so fantastic.
     
  13. I think it's that pesky indecisiveness! I love LV Mono but the Popincourt is not one of my favorites. From your posts re your style, I would go for the Batignolles, it strikes me as a very versatile bag, maybe try on the horizontal and vertical. Perhaps Cabas Piano as well-although I think Batignolles is more bang for the buck. Good luck!
     
  14. I have a Haut too and I wear it with everything, and most of my wardrobe consists of jeans, yoga pants and sweatshirts. I do like the batignolles vertical and I am actually considering getting it for my mom so I can use it too.. in general I think they're kind of similar since they're both sacs that are over the shoulder.

    And the best part of the popincourt are the balls. ;)
     
  15. I have the Haut Popincourt and love it with no regrets. It looks very classy and simple, depending on what you wear. It also can be formal and dressup too. I regret not having it special order in Damier Canvas. I just can't seem to wait for 5-6 months. I found out from a friend that the store charges 25-40% more for special order and 1/3 down.
