You'll probably think I'm crazy for letting go of a Raisin but...

... but when I saw the Pourpre IRL, my heart literally skipped a beat. It was :heart: at first sight!



Don't get me wrong, I think Raisin is a beautiful color. In fact I've been waiting for a long time to find me a perfect Raisin GSH City. But when I finally got her, for some reason she just didn't wow me like I thought she would. Initially I thought it's just some kind of reverse HG syndrome and that if I look at her more, she'll soon grow on me. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

Then I saw a Pourpre and was immediately taken by how gorgeous that color is IRL. I knew right away that I HAVE TO have a Pourpre! I wanted a RH City originally but then found a GSH City - and she is beyond gorgeous!

I think Raisin might be more photogenic, but Pourpre to me is much prettier IRL. It's the right kind of red for me - deeply saturated with lovely wine/berry undertone. And the leather is thicker, squishier & yummier too! I haven't been able to stop staring at her since she arrived.

So without further ado, here's my new love... :love:






Hello.




And goodbye.

I am in the same boat as you are, except I am still not able to find Pourpre part time or city in GSH.

Anybody, can you help?

I actually don't think you're crazy, I was really torn between pourpre and raisin. I went to buy raisin and was blown away when I saw pourpre IRL, they didn't have what I wanted in pourpre at the time, so I bougt raisin, but I kept thinking about pourpre for a long time afterwards. I now have a CP, which I really love.

Congrats on your beauty, I agree it's the perfect red!

Congrats on your Poupre SGH!!! totally gorgeous. and even though raisin is also an amazing color, I think what matters most is how the bag captures you and not how great the color is in "theory" (I'm totally like that... a lot of times I feel like I'm in love with a certain bag for the design/color but in the end it's just not for me). So you're not crazy at all! And it's one of the greatest feeling to find something that literally stops your heart!!!

ETA: btw the leather looks amazing!

I completely understand your decision. Pourpre is so versatile and heart-stoppingly beautiful! I love the picture of your Bal-stack!
