Purseonals: Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1 (1)
  • Chloe

    Absolutely love your bag and the unbeatable steep discount Megs! I have a question though and it is on your lovely jewelry in the first pic. I recognize the Cartier love on your wrist but could you share where you got your gorgeous rings? Thanks!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Yep – rings are Jennifer Zeuner and CatBird. I added links to the post so you can find them!

    Hi Megs, great to know that you got an amazing deal and steal! What a beauty! To me it’s a bit too large as I prefer the medium size but on you it looks great. I don’t own a PS1 yet but I have the PS11 the box type bag which I have not used yet. But upon playing with it when I first got it, I felt the same problem, getting into the bag. I hope you get many many such awesome deals in the future.

    May I ask which brand of sunglasses you are wearing? Just curious.

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      If it was a bit easier to get in and out of the bag this would be the perfect bag! I love the PS11 too.

      The sunglasses are Tom Ford, a few seasons ago :)

    Megs, that’s truly a deal of a lifetime and I can only imagine how happy you are about it! I love the Outnet and I sure will check it out at least once per day after reading your story! Thanks for sharing!! :)

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      The Outnet has become part of my daily ritual since I got that bag!

      • shueaddict

        I am a woman with a real life budget and the Outnet is my #1 shopping destination – it is responsible for several shoegasms and baggasms – but none as big as Megs ;-)

      • minnie

        Ok but for a real life budget…$4K+ for a bag?????

  • Brielle

    Wow! That bag is gorgeous and a lifer! Not to change the subject, but what nail color are you wearing in the main pic? I love it.

  • Miles

    Great post Meg – love the Canada goose in the pic !

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      SO GLAD YOU SAW HIM! He was coming towards us while we were taking the pictures as if he wanted to be photographed too :)

  • Yoshi

    Your PS1 is gorgeous! Is yours a medium or a large?

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      It’s a Large

  • Cbl

    What a score!! Such a beautiful color too.
    I scored a white python PS1 medium for 50% off ($1700) from kirna zabete but I’m pretty sure that wasn’t an accident. White bags are high maintenance enough, who would pay full price for white python, right? I have yet to use the bag but it’s so pretty!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      It is probably a little scary to carry, but that sounds stunning!

  • collinsgirl

    I love this bag! And I love the gold rings she is wearing too…anyone know where I could get these rings?

  • JaneH

    It was meant to be yours!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      I know… it was bag fate!

  • Michelle Lim

    Stuff of urban legend…

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Still pinching myself!

  • Man Bagger

    That’s SO AWESOME, I didn’t even realize they made them in croc leather! The nab of a lifetime, thank you for sharing this purseonals. Love love love it. I’d say it’d look awesome on a guy too. So happy for you!!!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Totally think it would look great on a guy too – thanks for the kind words!

  • Regina George

    From here onwards, you’ll simply be known as “The girl with the croc PS1″

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      HAHA this made me LOL

  • Valentina

    For me, it looks more like a bag the cowboys movies put over their horses , in order to take whater, their smoke , food, and everything…horrible!
    Not even the fine leather would help to change that western appel

    You’re so lucky Megs! It’s a great addition to your already fabulous collection. I love reading about it so please feature more of your bags here :)

    I found two very special Céline bags for a price too good to be true (but it was true, best Céline deal ever) so I know how you feel. Best feeling ever! Except for the moment you aren’t sure your order proceeded succesfull. I was feeling terrible! lol

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Which Celine deal?! Spill it :)

      • http://www.thebaghoarder.com/ TheBagHoarder

        I got a python box and a pony hair case bag for less than a regular mini luggage! Both bags were in new condition. Best deal ever right?!

      • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

        YES!!! Jealous!! :)

    What an awesome story Megs! And an awesome bag for sure. I’d go for a more in-your-face kind of colour (brights are my weakness! lol) but this one does look elegant and cool. Then again, almost everything Proenza Schouler makes looks cool. Also, I personally love the security of straps and a flap because out in the wild I’m a paranoid woman. :)

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      I was actually surprised a bright croc PS1 wasn’t what the Outnet had – this color is more classic and it would seem like a bright color would be first to go on sale

  • ReneeO

    So envious! What a beautiful bag! I love PS1′s and I have several. Getting in and out of the bags so easily and quickly is probably why I love them so much. I’m a small bag girl though so I have a couple pouches and a couple tinys. I do have a medium too but rarely use it. I guess the flap on the large bag is a lot bigger and changes that function. I would so love to have a croc PS1. You’re a lucky girl!!! Enjoy!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      I was wondering if the smaller versions would be easier to get in and out of… you answered that for me!

  • Elisa Fine

    Excellent article, glad to read something not about a celeb for once :)

  • Elisa

    Fabulous piece! So nice see something online by a nonceleb for a change! Great bag too, but I agree, those buckles aren’t user friendly.

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      The buckles aren’t too bad, but they definitely add an extra step. Glad you liked the feature!

  • ShoeQueen61

    Love Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry and I love your bag… Congratulations on you purchase!

      Jennifer Zeuner has the best jewelry! Love her! Thanks :)

    The bag is absolutely gorgeous, and I loved the story. I hope to read more posts like this one, so much fun! I have loved the PS1 since I first saw it, and obsessed about getting one for quite a while. But after trying it, I was worried that getting into it would irritate me over time, with the straps, and buckles. Clearly it’s worth a little inconvenience. Thanks!!

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      Ya, it’s totally worth the extra steps to get in and out. Someone made a good point saying the smaller size PS1′s might be easier to get in and out of. This is the large size

  • Marie

    Hi Megs, I , too was able to get my PS1 at a greatly discounted price. The original tag was $2100 and I got it for $720 . I had proenza on my wish list so I was quite happy to purchase the bag. After two uses (for church only) I noticed the color transfer from my clothes to the bag. Would you know if I would still be able to fix this ? I contacted Proenza thru email but I was quoted their color disclaimer and discouraged any chemical treatment on the bag.
    Thanks

    • http://www.purseblog.com/ Megs Mahoney Dusil

      What color is your bag? I’d say you need to wear lighter clothes, not dark denim, to try to help. Denim is what always gets me

      • Marie

        It’s the black and white triangle print (looks like houndstooth) … Thanks for the response

  • Asma Anwar

    Hi Meg, I am thinking of buying a medium leather PS1. Is it over and done with it or you think its still in style (a classic?) and a good buy.
