I went to Saks to return my Burberry Snood (reviewed here) and a super smooth SA showed me some Burberry sale items. One item was the below purple check bag that I had been searching for! I had ordered it from Nordstrom during the After-Xmas sale in a military green color only to have the order cancelled a few hours later. So when I found it at Saks for the same price but in PURPLE (one of my favorite colors), how could I say no?
Similarly, I had ventured to Nordstrom Rack to check out their Cole Haan shoe selection and found that they had Longchamp bags for half price! They had red (only in the super small size), lime green, lavender, and fuchsia so I chose the lavender.

What they look like worn
Pros and cons of each:
|I heart the purple plaid design/color||I don't really NEED this bag|
|Big enough to be a work bag||I think I'd prefer an east-west bag than a north-south|
|Durable, weather-friendly nylon||Expensive for nylon (but a good price for Burberry)|
|Dark color will hide dirt|
|This helps fulfill my Burberry obsession|
|Perfect for travel/work||Once again, I don't really NEED this bag|
|Large east-west style for easy access to items inside||I'm afraid the light color might show dirt easily|
|Durable, weather-friendly nylon||I'd prefer a Navy Blue or Red color|
|Much cheaper than the Burberry bag|
What to do? Keep one, keep both?
