  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. I saw your post that you mentioned that you might have been overcharged $2450 something. I think I paid the same amount a few months ago. Just want to know whether you were overcharged.
     
  2. Downtown, no no! I wasn't overcharged -- just thought I was! When I first saw the Gauffre e/w satchel, in one Prada store, I tried the small size and I didn't know there were two sizes. I was just looking that day. ($2,360.)

    Then I went to another Prada store and actually bought the satchel -- but didn't realize I'd bought the larger size! ($2,450.)

    The larger is about 2 inches wider and a tad higher. I ended up keeping the larger... fell in love, price difference was small enough, bag is a bit roomier, happy ending! :smile:
     
  3. Those 2 little inches were a big deal on my 5' 1 1/2 inch frame, believe it or not. The smaller bag suited me better and it holds a ton of stuff. I think I could still get away with it at night though, like if I were going straight from day/shopping to dinner and theater. What do you all think? Or does such a sized bag not exist?http://forum.purseblog.com/images/smilies/confused1.gif :confused1:
     
  4. Aimee, that's what sold me on the bag -- (the smaller one when I tried it) I thought the same thing -- great from day into night, moreso if you reomve the strap for night. I ended up keeping the larger anyway because the night use I was concerned about is really occasional dinner meetings, straight my office in a suit and this size works well, too, but I do think the smaller would be nicer at night.

    I say go for it! And post pics! :smile:
     
  5. Minette, thanks for your input. It's hard to find a bag that can serve more than one purpose but they are definitely necessary. I don't carry that much with me, but these days my sunglass case is so darn big, it's
    bigger than some of my bags! :P
     
  6. Thank you, Minette. I am glad to hear the happy ending. I was told my gauffree is the last piece in America since I bought it this Feb. with the silver hardware. hehe...I goes with suit very well.
