    Default Should I sell my bag? Help, please.

    I'm thinking of selling one of my Dior Gauchos partly because I feel guilty as I want to get a Damier Speedy Ebony in a couple of months and then a Bal Bag down the track. And partly because it's an IT bag. I do still love it. Would you keep it or do you think it's dated and just let it go? Would really value your opinions as I've been agonising over this for the last month.

    Btw, I've already put it on consignment. Wondering if I should rescue it.

    I've always liked the Gaucho bags, but I was never in love with them where I had to have one. But that's just me.

    Given the three bags you're debating between (mini gaucho, damier speedy, and a Bal), I would pick the Balenciaga then the Damier speedy after that. I think both of those are great bags to add to a collection. The speedy is a classic, and you can't go wrong with a Balenciaga. Also, both hold their value very well.

    But really, its all up to you. Are you in love with your gaucho bag? I mean, if you are absolutely happy with it, then you should keep it. But if you really want the other two bags and can not afford to keep the gaucho in order to acquire them AND you wouldn't mind letting it go, then sell your gaucho.

    ^^I'm not totally in love with it. And if I save up, I can get the two other bags without sacrificing the gaucho but it's more the guilt factor, really. I just feel that I shouldn't have so many bags (although my collection is way small than most ladies here!)

    It's actually the medium gaucho i'm thinking of. I would never let my mini gaucho go!

    ^oh, i thought you were talking about the mini...i didn't know you had a med one too. my bad! so if you're going to feel guilty and since you're not completely in love with the med gaucho, then maybe you should just sell it and get the other two bags. but i think you shouldn't feel guilty in the first place!

    i guess it comes down to how much you like your gaucho. if you sell it, you could put the money towards the other two. how much do you want to keep it?

    If there's somebody in your family who can use it don't sell it...instead of selling it why don't you give it to them. or if you really need money and there's no one on your family wants your handbag then sell it...

    lol! You know how it is, being a stay at home mum and all. If I was working at the moment, there won't be any second thoughts about keeping it. GUILT is a horrible thing

    If you are not totally "in love" then I would let it go. You would be putting the $$ toward a new bag and the 2 you have chosen are classic bags that you will be able to carry for many years.

    I say sell it, you already have the mini that you love.

    I know how you feel... I just tolf my DH i want to sell my PDA to buy an LV mono speedy... he goes, "enough for now, who buys 2 LV's in a month." I felt really bad but still want it... he thinks i'm trying to compete with you's girls by getting heaps of designer bags now, but the truth is I'm not competing at all.. I'm just obssessed with it. I'm horrible.

    When I was pregnant with my 1st son it was Juicy Couture, now its LV... should stop getting pregnant then! lol!!!

    And yeah, just sell the gaucho if you've got the mini that you love anyway. ITA with ZG.

    Ok, I've made a decision. I'm going to only buy the Bal when I've sold the gaucho. The size of the two are quite similar but the speedy is a completely different bag so I'll get that first. Phew! Feel better now.

    Thanks for your thoughts, guys!
