Q: Dear Bagaholicboy, I’ve gone down to the boutique to view this gorgeous bag. Do you think I should get this? I am in a dilemma because (a) The bag looks a bit too big as a handbag; (b) It’s in a light colour so I’m afraid it’ll get dirty; (c) Not sure if it will still be good to tote it around after this season (you know, some bags look ‘out’ after 1 season); and finally (d) Not sure if this will go well with many outfits. My gut feel says buy it but I am having second thoughts because this bag is not cheap. Should I spend SGD1950 on this?
A: Dear Stella, I only have one thing to say. Get the Louis Vuitton Monogram Watercolor Speedy30 instead! Currently only available in Japan, Hawaii and Guam, it is more suited to the petite Asian frame. Get a friend to grab one for you or wait for it to be released here (only a matter of time), either way it makes more sense than getting something you are not sure about.
As for your other concerns; (b) Everything gets dirty after a while, just be more careful and have a small pack of baby wipes on standby; (c) The colour theme for the Monogram Watercolor is very timeless and those colours always come back every Spring season; (d) Pick a colour from the Monogram Watercolour’s palette and work your outfit around it, you can’t go wrong.
