Is it worth it buying a Saint Laurent bag?
Yves Saint Laurent. At the end of July I celebrated my birthday and, in my 30s, I decided to offer myself a luxury bag. The plan was to buy Metis from Louis Vuitton, but since it was (and is) on the waiting list, I came to my second option: the Saint Laurent Envelope bag in medium size.
Of course, for some of you, it can be silly to pay so much money for a bag. But don’t forget each one knows about herself and, I can tell you, it was something for which I waited a long time.
With this being said, I wanted a beautiful and timeless bag, big enough to carry everything I like to carry but not too large. I was looking for an investment piece. Both Gucci and Chloé I own are smaller and, although they can be worn on a daily basis their size doesn’t allow me to carry everything without choosing, do you know?
It makes much more sense to buy a quality bag that will last a lifetime than buying many that, after a year, are already spoiled. I’m not saying that you should borrow to buy a suitcase (never do it, really)
And now the question is: Is it worth investing in a Saint Laurent bag? The answer could not be more obvious: of course, it is. I mean, if you can afford it, then buy it. This particular model – Envelope – in addition of being timeless and once I chose the average size is the perfect bag for every occasion.
Of course, there are those who find the opposite but it makes much more sense to buy a quality bag that will last a lifetime than buying many that, after a year, are already spoiled. I’m not saying that you should borrow to buy a suitcase (never do it, really). What I’m saying is for you to choose good materials bags because, in the end, it will make the difference.
In Portugal there are no Saint Laurent stores, and the brand can only be found in Stivali (in Lisbon) and Fashion Clinic (in Porto). Since I had seen the bag in Paris last February and did not find it in any of the two stores, I bought it online at the Saint Laurent website. So, 5 days after ordering, my girl was in my arms.
I hope you love her as much as I do. And be ready because you’ll see it a lot, here in the blog.
