I've gone off the deep end for sure. I've been lusting after the Trio for months now, and finally decided to take the plunge and get a Large (preferably burgundy). But I called all the boutiques in Paris and nobody had a single one. Thinking the regular size would be too small for me, I somehow ended up buying an Oversized black because I just couldn't resist how beautiful it is (I love big bags). Then today, I happened to be passing by the Victor Hugo boutique and I stopped in to have a look at their Trio colors. She showed me what they had (red, light blue, and ivory). Then I said, just for the hell of it, "Do you happen to have the Large size?" And she said, "yes, just one burgundy." Needless to say I didn't even hesitate. And to top it off, I threw in a wallet because mine is too huge to fit even in the Large Trio.

So here are the reveal photos. I'm still debating whether I will keep both. It's a lot of money which I don't really have, but hey, YOLO. And I can always sell one later, right?

Black Oversized Trio (1300 euros):

I can totally understand your dilemma as both looks great on you! If I HAD to pick one to keep it would be the oversized trio because I love big bags but that is my personal preference. So I guess I am not much help after all! :P

I just realized that the shop where I bought the Oversized doesn't accept returns, so I'm stuck with it! I may change my mind and sell, so I'll keep it in the dustbag for the time being. But I really, really do love it.
In the meantime, I'm already using the Large :smile:

OK everyone, opinions are totally split so I have to keep both!
Can anyone point me to a thread here about resale value of pre-loved Trios? I'm just curious how much I can expect to get if/when I decide to sell.

Thanks very much!
Congrats on your findings.
But i do not understand why Resell value of large trio is €600.
Where did you get that info from?
A small Trio cost €600-€650 so why would a large trio be cheaper?

If i didnt mistaken, she was asking what would be the resale value of a large trio if she wants to sell the trio privately to another owner. Usually resale value of preloved items is lower, because its second-handed and used.
