I have ALWAYS wanted the Speedy. When my husband offered to buy it for me for our anniversary, I just couldn't do it. Now with 2 kids, the fact that you have to carry it on your forearm/wrist area is just so impractical. I need a purse for everyday. The one I currently carry is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM, which is the size of a large diaper bag. I want something I can carry to work and outside of work.
So began my search.
I also thought I wanted the Speedy 30, but the Speedy 35 is now the more "trendy" of the two IMO.
Also, the fact that everyone and their mama has a Louis now kind of made it less appealing.
So then, I thought I wanted a Tory Burch. I go back and forth on whether or not I like a big label on something. Do I or don't I like this? Big Louis Vuitton monograms all over the bag, a big Tory Burch symbol in the middle of the bag, literally I change my mind on this daily.
So, I decided maybe I should just get this practical, black, classic bag.
Marc by Marc Jacobs, Too Hot Too Handle Hobo. It still has the label, just not so big.
The bag arrived two weeks ago and I just don't love it. I didn't think about the fact that it only has one strap so you have to take it completely off your shoulder to get anything out of it. Mama's: this is a must in my book. So, I sadly sent this baby back.
I used a 25% off that I had this morning and ordered this.
The Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Satchel.
It gets excellent reviews, has no label, black and gold classic look with a little bit of edge, and 2 shoulder straps! I hope I love it as much as I think I will.
I would love to hear your opinions on the great labels debate. And by no means am I saying that I will never order anything with a label!
