    Question Should I Keep This Handbag?!

    For those of you who have not read my other 2 threads...to bring you up to speed...I've been on the hunt for a new spring/summer handbag. I can only afford to spend a few hundred dollars right now. Don't really want to go over $500ish.

    I spotted this turquoise BCBG MaxAzria tote yesterday in Saks that stopped me in my tracks. Zombiegirl told me to get it so I don't regret it later - - and if I decide I don't like it I can always return it. So I took her wonderful advice and purchased it today. It was $458 + tax. Think total was $493.

    Now I need help deciding whether or not this is a keeper. Please let me know what you think. I took a few pics so you can see how the bag looks by itself and on me.

    The real question is, do YOU like it? It sounds like you do. and if so, I'd say keep it. I do love the color, and I do think it looks good on you.

    Do you think you'll have plenty of things to wear it with? Also, do you like the size in relation to where you are going to wear it? By which I mean, I have noticed that my weekend-around-town bags tend to be one size (small) and my going-to-work bags tend to be another size (large) and if I get a bag that's the wrong size for what I want it for, I tend to not wear it. But that's just me, haha.

    It is a beautiful color but when I spend $500+ for a bag I want it to be a bag I will carry for a long time. More of a classic, does that make sense?
    Do you feel that you will still love this bag in a few years? If so, then I say keep it!

    Personally I would look on ebay or ecrater for a Rebecca Minkoff or excellent condish LV. That is JMO though.

    I have to agree with Zombiegirl. The bag is a pretty color, but for the price I would want something I could have for years to come and I could enjoy year round.

    I am looking for more of a spring/summer tote that I can throw over my shoulder and pretty much wear with casual/cute clothes. Mostly neutral colors with some brights. So yeah the size is perfect and I love the fact that it has long shoulder straps. Hands free. BUT...

    Zombiegirl and Vuittongirl I think I definitely have to agree with you on this one. If the bag were $100 it would be a no brainer. But because it is basically $500 after tax...I think that is what is causing my mental confusion. I do like the bag but after I got it home I realized not for $500. I will not love this bag next year. It might actually piss me off. I'm more of a classic bag girl now. I don't mind spending $500 on bags that are timeless. This one definitely is not.
