When Your New Bag Arrives Do You.........


Mar 8, 2006
start using it right away for days, weeks or months? Do you feel like since it is brand new you cannot put your other bags into rotation until you have non-stop worn the new one? I feel guilty that my new LV perforated speedy will be placed in the closet once the new Chloe paddington and Balenciaga twiggy arrive next week!

I might be the odd ball here. When I get a new bag, I'm usually too nervous to use it immediately. I'll have it in the dust bag for days and will take it out every night (after everyone is asleep) and goo goo ga ga over it.

All of my new purses go through a "de-briefing" period whereby I will not use them for at least 4 days and they are only taken out for admiration before I go to sleep. Then afterwards I will use the bag for a short time once a week and they will fit in with the regular rotation of all my bags. Since I can almost use a different purse for every day of the month, my bags stay new that way.

Lately though I have noticed my older purses oxidizing in their dustbags even without use so I am forcing myself to use them more often.

I use it right away. Right now I keep switching from 2 of my latest beloved bags...

When I talk my cousin into giving me her Cornflower City :biggrin: then it will be three bags I'd be switching from... She...gasp... not too crazy about the leather and haven't used it since she bought it a few days ago..

I've been going through a phase, where although I am still buying expensive purses, I'm not even using them at all! I've been like this for the past month and some...I've been using my cheap urban outfitters tote b/c i like the french saying on it and various lacoste bags. lol My bf is in total disbelief as he thought I would never go out w/o my beloved purses in hand...but I actually am starting to favor the more inexpensive purses b/c I don't have to worry about getting them dirty as much.
