    Default I modded my Matinee!

    So...I MODDED MY MATINEE! Heheheh and there were no scissors involved!

    My favorite RM bag ever is my Wine Matinee. As much as I love the thick leather and many pockets, the super long tassels drove me nuts. So just two days ago, I decided to take matters into my own hands!

    I decided to take the long tassels off the front and back and replace them with the short tassels that came on the sides and TADA!!!!! Now the Matinee is the most perfect bag for me ever! I realize that this might now work for everyone but Im lovin it!
    Now that there are no more tassels on the side pockets, I have an easier time zipping and unzipping them. When I need to zip or unzip the side pockets, I just pull the O ring opened or closed with a finger. It really makes the flaps easier to maneuver, IMO.
    Ultimately, I am glad I have the shorter tassels in front because Im a messy kind of chick and I dont like too much frou frou Now, IMO, my Wine Matinee is sheer perfection and I am even more in love with it

    NOW:











    THEN:
    Here she was in her "straight from the factory" state



    Also, in case I ever get tired of the shorter tassels, I can always go grab the long tassels and replace them. WAHOO!

    ^Thanks Andee! I am still so in love with this bag, its just SICK! Heheh, sometimes I make a special trip over to pet her or to just lovingly fold/unfold one of her flaps. Sigh :wub: Its truly one of the best bags ever made. The combination of color, leather, and styling culminates in this bag to create a stellar presentation

    ^Thanks! I think ultimately I love the new look so much because I still get the cute flirty look of tassels but in a shorter and more manageable length. =)

    I totally understand about the tassles. They are coming off of my Twiggy immediately. I can't stand them. I feel like they are going to get into everything! They look cute but not for me.

    ^I have heard many people say that actually. To me, it doesn't look like a Bal...it looks distinctively RM but maybe that's because I was always more into RM than Bal, if that makes any sense. Anyhow, you are definitely right about the LOVE part! Every time I look at my wino Matinee, I get giddy! Ok, maybe that's a little corny. Honestly though, I love love love this bag. It is the perfect color, perfectly utilitarian, and absolutely gorgeous. Every time I have worn this bag, whether its been on the East Coast or the West Coast, I have had women stop me and ask me about it! Its definitely one of those bags that are the perfect culmination of form and function and gorgy factor!

    This is the best RM bag ever, even Rebecca herself said once that the wine leather was the best and smoshiest leather she's ever used

    Looks awesome Gungy!

    Yeah, since I obviously knew it was an RM, I knew it wasn't a Bal, but it looked like one kind of. It's so gorgeous! I love this one, and the giveaway RM!
