UGH....it's happening....I'm liking a F/W bag after I swore up and down no F/W bags for me! Soooo...basically y'all know I am playing catch up on LE items...trying to squeeze them in between current LE items and regular items. So I got behind this S/S because I wanted the Stephen. Well...I did buy the Dentelle speedy. Now...I want the Stratus PM in beige. I try it on all the time in the store and love it. But...I find myself now wanting to buy the Mirage speedy. Here are my pros & cons: Stratus: Beautiful, color goes with everything, unique, my first 'runway' piece (everything else is just limited and not a runway piece), all leather as opposed to canvas, soft and smooshy, great size, I don't have any light colored bags Expensive ($2400), potential for color transfer, potentially a very fragile bag, poofy handles, potentially trendy Mirage: Unique, limited edition, can buy it + another bag for the same as the Stratus, Expensive for what it is ($1800), haven't seen it IRL, very dark so only really suitable for F/W as opposed to year round, I have a ton of speedys Another major thing....I haven't seen the Mirage IRL yet, and if I wait until mid-September there really may be a chance all the Stratus' are gone from the US (it means an extra 2 week wait from when I originally plan to buy the Stratus). This is pretty much my only 'big big' purchase until the end of the year (everything else will be smaller purchases under 1K - i.e. Cruise line, etc.)...so it has to be right! There is also a chance the Mirage may go up...if it hits 2K I am definetly not buying it (IMHO 2K is way too much for a canvas speedy)! So...what would you do?
