New Red Jasmin, should I keep her?

  1. Hi all. Need some suggestions, please. I just ordered this bag from elux and love how it looks. It's super roomy for my LV goodies (wallet, med. agenda, & pochette cles). I showed it to my mother, fellow lover of LV but absolute hater of Epi, who thought it looked fake. The outrage!!

    My biggest issue is that I can't figure a way to justify keeping a $1k bag if it don't find a purpose for it.

    So I ask: Anyone, with a small LV collection, ever buy a bag knowing it won't be used often, but keep it because you know you'll need it at some point?
    Anyone have a Jasmin and find it useful or wasteful?

    Thank you to anyone who can assist me in my LV time of need!;)

  2. Keep it!!!! It's a beautiful bag!!!! I just bought the Hudson, right, and I'm not even gonna use it till Sept. I also have to keep it locked up in my closet for a while because I don't want my family to know I've bought yet ANOTHER bag. So, I jumped on it, but for the future not for now. It is a beautiful bag, and so classy looking. KEEP!!!!!
  3. Keep it.
  4. I don't have one, but I think it's beautiful. I'd keep it.
  5. I saw a girl with one on my way home from work the other day. She was obviously travelling - had a huge wheely duffel bag, and this gorgeous red jasmin! I had to remind my self not to stare - I'd never seen it IRL before. I say keep it!
  6. I have a black jasmin that I bought through ebay. I love it. I used it on a job interview I went on a few weeks back. I think it's a very classic bag in any color. Keep it.

  7. Like I said before, "Your not losing a bag, your gaining credit for a new one." With all the choices out there, you should be able to find something you love and will use.
  8. It is a gorgeous bag, keep it if you think that you will indeed use it, otherwise get something that you will!
  9. I'm not sure I quite agree.. I have a pretty small LV collection, and because of this, I don't really buy to collect but rather to use on an active basis. There were some times when I just bought something because I wanted it so badly but I didn't really give much thought to the actual practicality of it - these were sold since I'd rather have something I'd use rather than something that is fabulous but not often seen.

    The epi Jasmin is a gorgeous bag though - but it just depends on how much use you'd think you'd get out of it.
  10. elongreach, I just bought a black Epi Jasmin through eBay too! I'll post photos of it once it arrives.

    Anyway, I think the Jasmin is a beautiful bag (and not just because my name IS Jasmyne... *snicker*) If you're not going to use it though, better to exchange it for something you will, particularly if you're just beginning to collect.
  11. IMO keep it! I have a bag for almost every occasion. So that means some of my LVs only get used once or twice a year. But that's okay!
  12. I'm dying to own this bag--keep it.
  13. It's a GORGEOUS bag!!! Keep it!
  14. its gorgeous! keep it! i have an epi speedy and its just so classic. my bf thinks it looks fake too though..he calls it my plastic bag
  15. if you're not going to get much use out of it .. its no point keeping it. its better if you sell it / return it and get a bag that you would get more use of than keep a bag that you use only a couple of times a year.

    it is better to put the money towards a bag that you would use more often as bags are meant to be used and if you don't find yourself comfortable with the purchase .. and often thinking twice about keeping/selling it .. then i think you shouldn't keep it and get a bag that you really really love
