    Default Pochettes are not acceptable?

    I'm really sad... I was searching through blogs and I found this article from Bound by String.

    the story of a pochette and its 30 something year old owner

    i love when i'm walking down the street and see someone with a gorgeous bag. it doesn't necessarily mean the bag has to be designer ( but it's usually the case), but bags and shoes are normally the first thing i notice about the person (outside of if they are tall, hot and gorgeous). ok, sorry getting back to bags... its funny how the trend nowadays is to concentrate on the current "it" bag. whether it was the prada nylon bags in the late 90's, the dior saddle bag in the early 2000's, marc jacobs last year, or the chloe paddington bag, there has always been a long list of designer and adopters to fill that trend. it's the usual suspects like LV, Gucci, Balenciaga, YSL, Prada etc..

    what pains me is when women try to pass off the lowest line in the collection of designer goods and transform them into purses. what do you think i'm referring to?
    this little thing. it's called the LV pochette accessoires. i'm confused that i see women carry this around their arms, using it as the designer "it" bag. i have a friend and um we'll just call her, "Keirdre" (yeah because no one will guess what her real name is) is notorious for this awfulness. this is by far not an it bag. this is by far not even a bag. in fact reader, it is a make up case and as described at eLUXURY is meant as an accessories case that links in fact to the real LV purse. so where the confusion comes is how someone decided to throw that strap around their arm, link it to the other side, and now call it a purse?

    i understand that designer handbags are super-luxe and cost almost a small malawi child, so i can relate that a teenage girl might use this as their first step into the world of high fashion goods. what i cannot relate to is some 30 something year old owning this and deciding to pass this off as a purse! come on sister, fork over some extra dough and buy yourself a 30 something year old bag. yeh, yeh and i know some of you will say , oh my arms hurts, the bag is too heavy blah blah. it still won't change my mind you're carrying around a make-up case and trying to pass it off as a "faux-purse."

    $285, Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoires available at eLUXURY. But please ladies, buy this to insert in your purse instead of using it as a purse.
    Do people really think this when they see me carrying around my Cherry Blossom Pochette? I am 25, but I just do not like big purses. I'm not carrying around pochettes because that is the least expensive LV bag that one can possibly buy just so I can have a "designer" bag. I just don't see myself carrying around a Speedy or what-not because they are just too big. I am a minimalist when it comes to carrying things around with me. All I need is my wallet, coin purse, lipbalm, and keys. Is that so wrong?

    What the hell. I disagree with that blog post... It doesn't matter how old you are. If you feel like going minimal then these bags are perfect. Not everyone likes totes or giant purses - I like them just so I can carry everything I can with me... but it is a hassle (im sure most of you know what Im talking about) digging around to find, say you cell when its ringing.

    Sorry, that's BS. I own many Pochettes and it in no way means, I can't "fork over extra dough". Regardless of age, we should be able to buy and wear whatever purse we please. The person who wrote that was very narrow minded, personally I carry a bag based on the day's events and my outfit. If a Pochette is going to meet my purse needs that day and it looks good with what I'm wearing, why not? And a lot of Pochettes cost just as much as a "30 year old bag". My Trompe L'Oeil Pochette was $1,400+. I wonder how the writer feels about the Mini Pochettes. LOL.

    true, so true. I think that everyone should be entitled to wear whichever bag she choose for her daily needs. sometimes we just want to bring something dainty out.

    That post is pure garbage. There are several celebs using the pochette as a cute clutch...why shouldn't you? And I applaud you for being a minimalist...I think too many women carry too much stuff (it's really bad for your back...).

    jennifer, i cant see the image.....

    but about what that person wrote...... WRONG! People shouldn't be looked down upon for the size of their designer pochette. Who cares.

    I love my multicolore pochette! Its basically the same price as my speedy30. Its so small and comfortable. When I don't feel like carting around a big Alma I wear it.
