I’m not really haunted by much (maybe just the idea of a super large spider or taking a really bad fall), but I do find myself constantly thinking about certain bags that got away. This clearly is a topic that comes up a bit here at PurseBlog; we have covered it twice (here and here) in the past, and before I wrote this post today, I asked members of the PurseForum this very question.
Many of you know that in the past few years, I’ve been hunting for the right version of specific bags. It’s not like the It Bag heyday where if you missed a bag, you would never be able to get it–now it’s more the specific, seasonal versions that I regret not nabbing.
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect Chanel Boy Bag for what feels like a solid year–maybe two–right now. I first thought I wanted the large size, but like a handbag Goldilocks, I decided it was too big. I have an Old Medium, and now I’ve decided I want a New Medium. I love the versions with chevron quilting; it’s different and very cool, and Chanel released different chevron-quilted Boy Bags every now and then. I could get a new version if I wanted one.
But, it was the Chanel Chevron Quilted Boy Bag above, from a few seasons ago, that, to this day, tugs at my heartstrings. I love both the chevron and the classic quilt, which makes this probably the most made-for-me combo out there. I’ve asked at Chanel, and it doesn’t look like this bag will be coming back; because of that, I spend my days thinking about it whenever I try to decide on a Boy Bag. Nothing seems to compare, and I wish had I scooped it up when I could.
What about you–which bag(s) do you wish you bought and feel haunted about missing?
