    Ok, so I have these rules, painstakingly learned through trial and error:
    1) Bags with more than one color are hard for me to match - I like all the colors I wear to match just so
    2) It is difficult for me to keep light colored BV-bags pristine, so I should just stay away from them
    3) I find bags without som sort of closing mechanism - could be just the magnetic kind - unpractical

    Here is my new bag then:
  2. The bag is from resort 2018 as best as I have been able to research it, and by some miracle it appeared on Vestiaire Collective at a very reasonable price.

    I could not resist.

    I love the colors, and even though there are three of them, they do go with much of my wardrobe, and that makes me justify it.

    I like the design of the bag, and that it has room enough for me to use it to work once in a while, IMG_1507472867.388426.jpg IMG_1507472886.981034.jpg or otherwise it is small enough to use when going out shopping or other casual activities.

    I think the size fits me well (ignore the outfit), and I will do my best to keep it from getting dirty....
  3. Louise! It's gorgeous! I cannot imagine a more worthy bag to break rules for! Yay, and congratulations!

  7. Thank you all for the kind words - I’ll be reporting back to you on how it works out. And yes, I agree, sometimes you have to break the rules for the right bag!
  8. Love it!
  9. What a gorgeous bag! The color and design is neutral enough to go with any other color. Totally worth breaking the rules!

  11. I really appreciate the understated uniqueness BV does with their special treatments. This is lovely.
  12. How cool you got a next season bag so early! Well done!
  13. I know! I am so happy - I usually buy pre-loved, and therefore I seldomly have the new bags, but this time I am ahead

  15. I agree that rules are great guidelines but sometimes have done their job and need to be broken. I have to say that tpf has gotten me to be more adventuresome. Seeing how the rest of you put things together is inspiring.
