Chanel Bag Experience

Seid Ihr der Meinung, dass teure Designer-Taschen ihr Geld wert sind?

Cap: H&M / Glasses: Lewi's / Shirt: Bonprix / Jacket: Armani /
Bag: Chanel / Denims: LTB / Sneakers: Adidas

Nun weiß ich nicht, ob Ihr ebenfalls eine Schwäche für Taschen habt - so wie ich. Doch während ich früher Taschen günstig, in Massen und gerne jeweils extra passend zum Outfit gekauft habe, entschied ich vor einigen Jahren nicht nur aus Platzgründen mein Kaufverhalten in Bezug auf Taschen massiv zu ändern.

Umgesetzt hat mein Vorsatz für mich bedeutet, dass ich nicht bei jeder Tasche, die nur mir annährend gefiel, auf der Stelle meinen Geldbeutel zückte. Stattdessen habe ich einfach ein wenig gespart und dann nach einiger Zeit jeweils in eine Designer-Tasche nach meinem Geschmack investiert.

Eine Weile war ich absolut stolz auf mich über meine neue Taschenkauf-Methode, bis ich vor ein paar Tagen einen richtigen Schreck bekam. Denn an meiner nicht gerade billigen, original in einem Chanel-Shop erstandenen Chanel-Tasche, die ich nicht nur hege und pflege, sondern fast schon wie meinen Augapfel hüte, ist zu meinem großen Bedauern eine Steppnaht aufgegangen.

Und obwohl mir der Chanel-Shop, in dem ich die Tasche gekauft habe, zuvorkommend und freundlich eine ordnungsgemäße Abwicklung meiner Reklamation zugesichert hat, bin ich immer noch so enttäuscht über diesen Qualitätsmangel, dass ich mir überlege, ob solche Mankos auch bei wesentlich günstigeren, doch durchaus auch ansehnlichen Taschen vorkommen und ob das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis von solch teuren Taschen generell passt.

Für was habt Ihr eine Schwäche? Wie sieht Eure Taschensammlung aus? Bei welchen Taschen findet Ihr das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis angemessen?

Und vermutlich könnt Ihr Euch jetzt denken, warum ich zu meiner Chanel-Tasche heute das weiße T-Shirt mit genau diesem Comic-Aufdruck angezogen habe. Keine Bedeutung hat es allerdings, dass ich dazu eine rote Mütze, die weiße Armani-Daunenjacke, die blaue Skinny und die weißen Stan Smith von Adidas trage …


Do you have the opinion that expensive designer bags are worth the money?

Now I don't know if you also have a weakness for bags - as I have. But after in the past I bought bags cheap and en masse and often only matching to one outfit, I decided some years ago not only for reasons of optimising storage to change my bags buying behavior dramatically.

Implemented my intent has meant that I didn't longer pull out on the spot my wallet for every cheap bag that I liked. Instead, I just saved my money for a while and then invested after some time in a designer bag accordingly my taste.

For a while I was quite proud of myself about my new bag purchase method, until I got a real shock a few days ago. Because my not really cheap, original in a Chanel shop purchased Chanel bag, for which I care in the best possible way, to my great regret has a broken stitching.

And although the Chanel store where I bought the bag promised courteous and friendly the the damage rectification, I am still so disappointed with this quality defect that I'm considering whether such shortcomings also happen with much cheaper, but also quite good-looking bags and whether the price-performance ratio of such an expensive bag fits in general.

For which things do you have a weakness? How does your bag collection look? For which bags do you think is the price-performance ratio appropriate?

And probably now you may know why today I put on the white t-shirt with exactly this comic print together with my Chanel bag. However, it doesn't have any meaning, that I wear additional a red cap, the white Armani down jacket, the blue skinny and the white Stan Smith Adidas sneakers ...



There is a connection between my shirt and my experience with my Chanel bag

  6. Bags are my weakness too. I have about 7 bags in my Chanel collection ranging from year 1991 to 2011 and the quality of Chanel bag from 1991 is way better than new Chanel. It was discussed in a bag forum (of which I am a member) about the deterioration of the quality of Chanel bags that is not at par with the increasing price. I actually stopped buying new Chanel bags since 2011 due to this.

  12. liebe rena, ich habe wohl auch eine kleine schwäche für taschen, bin seit über 10 jahren in diversen foren der taschenmädels aktiv und dort haben wir schon sachen gesehen, die kann keiner verstehen, der meint, eine 150 € tasche sei "teuer". es gibt echt keine marke, bei der es nicht hin und wieder oder dauerhaft qualitätsmängel gibt: marc jacobs' magnetverschlüsse löschten EC karten, louis vuittons kleber verfärbte weisse taschen gelb, hermes' neues grün läßt selbst eine birkin abstinken, bei chanel rubbeln sich auch bei sorgfältigster benutzung schon mal in einem jahr die ecken durch, chloes paraty bekommt am leder schwarze stellen von der hardware....die liste ist noch länger, das war jetzt nur, was mir gerade einfiel. natürlich rufen viele laut DAS KANN DOCH NICHT WAHR SEIN BEI DEN PREISEN. doch, kann es. das teuerste an so einer tasche ist ja wohl der markenname. sonst könnte rebecca minkoff eine boy-ähnliche ledertasche ja nicht für den bruchteil einer chanel-boy-tasche anbieten.
    *guckstdu*
    http://tinyurl.com/ppyyc6g

    ausserdem ist leder ein naturprodukt, unterliegt qualitätsschwankungen und wird von menschen verarbeitet, die vielleicht auch manchmal einen fehler machen und die in firmen arbeiten, die nur eines wollen: UNSER GELD. viel geld - für ihren profit. und so lange wir taschenmädels weiter unser geld in diese läden tragen, wird das alles auch so bleiben und die preisspirale sich jedes jahr weiter drehen. trotzdem haben wir ja immer viel freude an den taschen ♥

    ich hoffe, daß dein schätzchen schnell repariert werden kann und vor allem, daß chanel die reklamation anerkennt ;) liebe grüße, bärbel ☼

    1. Liebe Bärbel, eines weiß ich sicher, dass Du nicht nur eine große sondern auch sehr tolle Taschensammlung hast, von dem her könnte ich mir schon vorstellen, dass Du zumindest auch eine kleine Schwäche für Taschen hast :) Ja, darüber lässt sich diskutieren, ob eine 150 € Tasche teuer ist ;) Und wenn ich so lese, welche Qualitätsmängel selbst bei teuren Taschen auftreten können, dann bin ich jetzt sehr geneigt, die aufgegangene Naht meiner Chanel-Tasche als direkt harmlos anzusehen, vor allem weil selbst meine besten Lieferanten in meinem beruflichen Einkäufer-Umfeld auch immer mal wieder Ware liefern, die Grund zur Beanstandung geben – und zwar unabhängig davon, ob es sich um teure oder günstige Produkte handelt. Danke für Deinen Link, joh, do hob i gschaut!

      Und nachdem die Nachfrage das Angebot regelt, gehe ich schwer davon aus, dass Du recht hast und freu mich jetzt nicht nur aus alter Gewohnheit weiter an meinen Taschen ♥

      Telefonisch hat mir Chanel bereits eine Erledigung der Reklamation zugesichert. Wie es dann wirklich läuft, darauf bin ich selber schon gespannt, wenn ich nächsten Monat vor allem deswegen mal wieder im Münchner Chanel Shop vorbeischaue :) Liebe Grüße, Rena

  13. I like bags too, but I'm not buying designer bag to impress somebody. This is something that I really like, so the purchase is for me. of it's worth the money? It's hard to say, but if this is something that you enjoy and desire- why not. I like bags and shoes. So I know when you are coming from. In relation to Chanel, I would go to that shop and demand to get my bag fixed. I know you think this bag will be for ages, but somethimes we are unlucky and we can get that one bag that will cause you heartbreak.

    1. Your approach is really good as you buy the bags only to make yourself happy! Personally I think really if it makes us happy it’s the price worth. We should only think about our expenses if we recognise that they don’t make us happy in the long turn … I had already a phone call with the Chanel shop and they promised me to repair the bag. And in the next month I will bring my bag to the shop - and hope the repair will be so successful that my bag will really be for ages :)

    Dein Outfit ist wieder sehr casual, und das gefällt mir so gut! Die Stan Smith Schuhe habe ich auch, aber natürlich in rot;-)

    Das mit Deiner Tasche tut mir leid, ich bin froh, dass Du keine weiteren Unannehmlichkeiten im Laden hattest. Ich habe nur noch 3!! Handtaschen, dafür waren sie relativ teuer, so konnte auch ich Platz sparen.

    Eine Schwäche habe ich für Bücher und DVDs, davon kann ich nicht genug haben.

    Liebe Grüsse sendet Dir:)

      Danke für Dein Mitgefühl :) 3 Handtaschen machen für mich absolut Sinn, und auch der dadurch gesparte Platz ist für mich ein großer Anreiz!

      Für Bücher habe ich auch eine große Schwäche, nur mit DVDs bin ich außerordentlich mäßig ausgestattet :)

      P.S: Wie schön, danke! Ich finde auch, dass die Zeit unglaublich schnell vergeht. Wie schade, dass Du von der Freundin nichts mehr gehört hast.

  25. Can imagine the disappointment! I've experienced something similar with a Michael Kors bag once - it wasn't the main line, but still quite pricey (and definitely overpriced for the quality it turned out to be). I still think that I'd rather invest in a bag than buy mass-market options (especially because so many are "inspired" by designer it-bags), but yes, I do expect something that would last and look good for years. Love your 2.55, though. Very chic. x

  32. Liebe Rena,
    das ist ja wirklich ärgerlich. Als großer Taschenfan kann ich gut verstehen, wie da das Herz blutet. Bestimmt muss die Tasche eingeschickt werden. ich hoffe, dass alles gut und kulant für Dich geregelt wird. ich hatt vor 2 Jahren eine Reklamation an meiner Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy. Schon nach wenigen Monaten löste sich am henkel das Leder ab. Die Reklamation wurde sehr freundlich angenommen und die Tasche nach Paris geschickt. Leider musste ich 8 Wochen auf sie verzichten.Dann kam sie mit neuem Henkel zu mir zurück und ich musste nichts für den Austausch bezahlen. Traurig war ich schon, bei dem Preis der Tasche, aber immerhin wurde alles zu meiner Zufriedenheit geregelt.
    Die Preisspirale, die sich zur Zeit bei den Designer Taschen sehr schnell nach oben dreht ist extrem. immer wieder denke ich, das war jetzt aber die Letzte und werde doch immer wieder schwach...
    Aber ich stimme Dir zu, lieber weniger neue Taschen und dafür besondere Stücke.
    Viele liebe Grüße

      danke, dass Du mich so gut verstehst! Ich hoffe auch, dass mit der Reklamation alles klar geht und es ähnlich gut läuft wie mit Deiner Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy. Da würde ich sogar 8 Wochen Verzicht in Kauf nehmen :)
      Ansonsten geht es mir auch angesichts der sich nach oben drehenden Preisspirale wie Dir und noch halte ich an meinem bisherigen Motto fest.
      Viele liebe Grüße

  33. Ja, das ist eine gute Frage! Also ich bin auch eher der teurere Taschentyp, wobei Chanel spielt es nicht (ich hab' ne Obergrenze, die deutlich unter Chanel liegt) und Logos mag ich nur, wenn ich sie geschenkt bekomme (soll vorkommen ;) bzw. wenn es einem nicht gleich anspringt. Bin ja kein Werbeträger um viel eigenes Geld! Für mich, bin ich drauf gekommen, dass sich hochwertigere Taschen lohnen, sie halten doch einiges aus (ausgelaufenes Make up, vergessene Orangen usw. nein Spaß, das mute ich meine T's nicht zu) aber Griffe, Metallteile udgl. da merkt man dann schon einen Unterschied und beim Service, man kann reklamieren oder reparieren lassen, auch wenn der Kauf schon einige Zeit zurück liegt - daher vielleicht doch noch eine Chanel! Meine Mädls würden nicht nein sagen, wenn's eine erben! Liebe Grüße

    1. Das klingt ja ganz so, als wenn Du Taschen im oberen Preissegment geschenkt bekommst, das finde ich total klasse! Und wenn Deine Taschen all das aushalten, was Du hier anführst, dann sind sie auf jeden Fall ihr Geld wert :) Meine Tochter hat übrigens auch schon des Öfteren erwähnt, dass sie meine Chaneltasche gerne vererbt bekommen würde ;) Liebe Grüße

  39. What's the right price-performance ratio for a designer bag? Some colleagues of mine, who work for the fashion-finance pages of my newspaper, complained days ago that prime luxury brands don't work with the best quality materials. So bags get too easily broken but shops then (in Milan!!!) refuse to replace the goods. Nevertheless I like designer bags as well :)))
    Great happy look, Rena, I love it!

  43. Bei Designer-Taschen zahlt man halt nicht nur das Material, sondern die Werbung und das Prestige mit - da muss jeder für sich selbst wissen, ob es sich auszahlt oder nicht.
    Ich bin leider noch im 'viele Taschen haben' Stadium, und jedesmal, wenn mir eine teure Designer-Tasche sehr gut gefällt und ich schon fast entschlossen bin sie zu kaufen, fange ich zu überlegen an, wie viele andere ich dafür haben könnte ......... (das gleiche mit dem neuen Handy, hab's noch nicht gekauft, obwohl ich hier ja eigentlich keine Wahl habe ;-)). Manchmal gebe ich auf einem einzigen Flohmarkt die Hälfte des Preises so einer Tasche aus, aber das sind ja dann auch 20 oder mehr Stücke :lol)
    Schade wegen des Defektes bei deiner, hoffe es wird ordentlich erledigt und du hast noch lange Freude daran.

  44. Love your mix of cartoon, contemporary, and luxe with the classic Chanel : a perfect mix!
    I am sorry about the stitch! But you do wear this bag often, so I imagine things like this can happen even with such expensive bags..
    But there is the wait time for you, while it is repaired.... sigh..

    I am a bit of a handbag collector... My favorite is Hermes, and I am so lucky to own some.
    I also love Chanel, but treasure some lesser know brands, as Finesee La Model, Nina Ricci, Anya Hindmarch, Loewe ( not well known in the US) Sonia Rykiel, and handmade bags by artisans who are not well known at all.
    It is a responsibility to carry such $$$ bags, I will not carry my Hermes bags in the rain, and certainly will not lug it long it is rain kit! I have some vintage shoulder bags, that work well.
    I lov all of my bags, even ones that were only three dollars!!!

  52. Dear R,
    I am still in thinking if it is worthy to pay expensive bags in my country due to high of margins and taxes on luxury items so still although i could buy them sometimes, always think what I can buy for my house that I rent during the summer to improve my service. So , bags in my collection are not bought for its signature but for colour or design that I like it.
    For me it is ok if somebody buy expensive bags, and also I understand that the owner would like not to have any problems with the quality but sometimes it is not just like that..
    Sweet outfit; I like your sneakers,
    Kisses, Sily

    1. Dear S,
      I heard already that in your country designer bags are even more expensive due to high of margins and taxes … therefore I understand that you prefer to spend the money for the house you rent during the summer! And to buy a bag for colour or design makes sense! Unfortunately even with expensive things quality problems can be happen …

  56. Oh my dear Rena. I am so sorry about damed of your bag. Even an expensive bag could have a problem. I don't wear mine so often because I am too lazy or busy? to get a chair and reach up high to get my favorites bag that I put up high on the bag shelf:) so I would wear what I can reach out easily. I still think the high end is best to invest because you can sale anytime if you won't wesr them anymore. I don't have a problem with my designer handbag yet as I said I didn't wear them as often which I should:)! My weakness for sure go to designer handbag:). I now start to look for another newbie one lol. Which I been good for while for not spend lot of money on my weakness.:) I've missed to stopping by at my regular handbag mall:). look online you might get lucky to find some help to fix it up:). You look super chic and amazingly of the mixed my dear Rena. I am going to bed as my medicine is starting to work now. My cough meds is making so sleepy here. I wish you a lovely Friday my dearest Rena. Thank you so much for every kind things dearest Rena. Always love from me to you. Hugs and kisses

Although it is a pity that you don’t wear your expensive bags so often your habit has the advantage that you preserve your wonderful bags :) And thank you for your really good argument: yes, you can always sell a high end bag for a good price! Honestly I like it that we both have this weakness for designer bags ;) Looking forward to see your newbie and hopefully you will be able very soon your handbag mall! Thanks for your feedback. Wish you by all my heart that the medicine works and that the coughing is better now. Thank you so much that you even took the time to write here your lovely words although you were so sleepy <3 Always love from me to you. Hugs and kisses

  62. Liebe Rena, ich fühle mit dir echt mit. Ich habe nämlich auch eine große Schwäche für Designer Taschen. Ich habe übrigens letzte Zeit oft Youtube Videos gesehen wo Frauen sich über Chanel Qualität negativ geäußert haben. Eine Frau hat sogar 2 oder 3 mal ihre Chanel Jumbo double flap wegen Fehlern zurück schicken müssen.
    Aber zum Glück bekommst du deine Tasche ersetzt :)
    Übrigens wir haben die gleichen Stan Smith :) Meine sind aber in grün.

    Deine Outfit is so toll zusammen gestellt. Ich muss mir unbedingt auch so ein T-Shirt wie deines besorgen. Super stylish!!!!
    Ich wünsche dir ein wunderschönes Wochenende.

  65. I have few designer bags and I have had always on my wishlist Chanel. It's classic, right. But I have seen how through the years price of it have been growing and growing. Crazy and the more I read the more I know - the popular brand gets the more price rise and poor quality gets. And it shouldn't be like that. It's like brand is going in mass production goods no more attention to details. I have vintage bag over 20 years old which we have been sharing through the years with my mom. I don't even know the brand, my dad brought it from Germany. It's perfect condition. That is the quality. Such a shame Chanel. I hope they will do good repair. Rena, I love your playful look . You look amazing. Happy Friday!

    1. It is really unbelievable how the price of Chanel bags has been growing and growing! The unpleasant thing of this development is for sure that although the prices are increasing this isn’t valid for the quality. I know that you own this vintage bag from the unknown German manufacturer and that you have been sharing this bag through the years with your mum and I like this bag as I saw it already on your blog. Maybe the brand is “Goldpfeil”? Because this brand was 20 years ago very popular in German but stopped to exist since a few years. I hope also Chanel will do good repair … and restore thus their reputation … Thanks for your feedback. Happy weekend!

  79. Hallo liebe Rena,
    das kann allen passieren. Mir ist erst vor kurzem meine LV Neverfull bag zurück gekommen weil der Riemen an der Seite gerissen war. Das kann bei einer Tasche von 70€ sowie bei einer von 700€ passieren. Klar regt man sich auf bei einer Tasche die Tausend und/oder mehr € gekostet hat richtig auf, aber ändern kann man nicht viel.
    Ich kann leider nicht wie du sparen und warten, ich kaufe alles was mir unter die Finger kommt und das ist meistens auch übertrieben viel, aber was soll eine Süchtling machen?
    Ps Dein Outfit ist wie immer sehr gut. Die Superstar Sneaker habe ich mir heute in Mailand gekauft. Looove them.

  80. Oh wie schrecklich und enttäuschen mit der Naht! Das kann ich mir sehr gut vorstellen. Ich wäre auch enttäuscht, aber ich glaube das ist alles relativ. In NYC war ich auch bei Chanel weil mir die aktuellen Lacktaschen so gefielen und beim Preis mir die Augen herausfielen. Das wäre für mich schon eine Herausforderung. Wenn dann etwas kaputt geht, jammer. Doch jemand, der sich leicht drei von diesen Taschen leisten kann, zuckt vielleicht darüber mit den Schultern. So wie wir es bei einer Tasche von Esprit machen würden. Das soll nichts relativieren, denn eigentlich soll das nciht passieren. Doch der Preis bei Luxusdingen ist ja manchmal eher eine Gewinnspanne als Qualitätsmerkmal, denke ich. Genau heute habe ich gedacht, rot und türkis sind eine so schöne Kombination und schon ist sie bei dir zu sehen...das war sicher Gedankenübertragung. Hab ein schönes Wochenende mit deiner hoffentlich ordenlich hungrigen Familie und sei lieb gegrüßt. Sabina | Oceanblue Style

    1. Danke für Dein Mitgefühl, liebe Sabina, aber Du hast auf jeden Fall recht, alles ist relativ :) Natürlich kann so etwas sowohl bei einer „günstigen“ Tasche genauso auch wie bei einer „teuren“ Tasche vorkommen … und das kann ich mir schon auch vorstellen, dass jemand umso leichter mit den Schultern zuckt, desto eher er sich die entsprechenden Taschen leisten kann. Die von Dir erwähnten Lacktaschen habe ich mir übrigens heute auch angeschaut, als ich meine Chanel-Tasche zur Reparatur brachte. Die sind echt toll! Allerdings hat mir eine ganz bestimmte Chanel-Tasche noch besser gefallen … Rot und türkis gefällt mir in den Kombination schon sehr lange sehr gut, genauso wie pink und türkis mich alleine schon beim Drandenken glücklich macht. Und ich denke, das war mindestens Gedankenübertragung, was Du Dir gedacht hast und ich denke da vor allem auch an Seelenverwandtschaft. Danke für Deine lieben Wünsche, meine Familie war bisher wie gewohnt hungrig :) Dir und Deinem Lieben auch noch ein wunderbares Wochenende und sei lieb gegrüßt. Rena

  82. Great casual look, love your sweater and sneakers. I prefer to buy clothes than bags, Sorry about the bag hope you get it fixed :) That's the reason why I don't trust designer brands, I'd rather support the small brands than giving my money to these greedy companies, nowadays everyone just wants to fit in and fitting in these days is buying expensive stuff. Also I'm not impressed with people who wears designer clothing all the time, looks like they're trying too hard :) Enjoy your weekend Rena! xo

  83. Wow Rena! Ultimately I guess it must be disappointing to find such failures on a designer bag, this bag model is one of my favorites of that brand, so classic and elegant sofisiticado, I think up any outfit even the most simple, if at any now I have the opportunity probably buy it for mere whim at the moment I can be okay with cheap handbags no problem. Happy weekend!

  85. Even I have a weakness for bags and just like u stopped buying every random bag instead invest into designer bags only but yes they disappoint too , my Louis Vuitton speedy's top handle almost broke, my moschino's handle is also like that it may be because I tend to carry too many things but bags are meant to carry things and when we are paying so much we expect it doesn't fall apart after few uses only. But this is my dream bag.

  88. I would love to own a Chanel bag.. or preferably a Louis Vuitton.. but I just don't have the money and if I did I really don't think I'd be spending it on a bag!! As much as I love it... I just have other things that would come first!
    I did just buy quite an expensive leather backpack to travel with and that I am in love with and it's also super reliable for the travels.. so a bag like that is definitely worth the money!
    But just paying for a normal bag with a logo of Chanel on it.. I don't know!!!! IF I had unlimited funds, definitely!!!

  98. Beautiful look again. Love your tee. This is one interesting topic. My blue Chanel le boy bag, the leather handle that leads to the chain handle came off from no were. I was in tears for days before I took it back to selfridges to complain, they told me there is nothing they can do, because it look like an accident not a material issue. I recently find a solution to it in a shop were I went to paint my louboutin sole. The guys told me they also repair designer bag. I took it there and sat with them to do it. But the leather they put looks too shining and don't match. I am still upset. They bags chanel make this days are in poor tast. I think sometimes heavy price tag bag is not worth it. Also my vava voom Valentino bag, when I bought it I got a display/used bag. Omg. I sent it back immediately. Until a friend who work for. London magazin told me she got invitation to buy ex display bags/shoes from selfridges and I followed her. And got my vava voom bag for half price, with little manufacturer problem. But can't return it back because of the price they sold it. I carefully buy bags this days. Have a lovely weekend. http://sophialastyles.blogspot.co.uk/

    1. Many thanks! I’m so sorry that this happened with your Chanel le boy bag as this is such a beautiful bag! And it is so sad that they didn’t accept the complaint and also the repair at this shop didn’t work out how it would have been good. Wish you will nevertheless like your bag one day again … I think also buying bags these days is a challenge and just yesterday when I bought two new bags I thought a lot about my purchases and hope really at least the quality of these bags will be as good as I expect for the prices I paid.

  99. ha ha ha...so funny that you matched your tee and the bag. Fantastic outfit!

    I don't have a weakness for bags, but if I were to work in fashion industry, I would perhaps save money and buy at least 'one iconic bag'.

    I think problems with sticking happen with many bags...everything not just bags is just not the same quality as it used to be before. I think that is even the case with more expensive bags. At least they offered to fix the problem in the store. However, I can understand why it made you question that bag.

    Today we have a wonderful selection both of products and prices but I'm afraid the quality isn't what it used to be when clothing items and accessories were made by hand.

      Yesterday I brought my bag to the shop and fortunately they promised that they will fix the problem thus they send the bag to Paris. Hopefully everything will work out in a satisfying way in the end :)

      And I think you are right that the products which were made by hand have the best quality.

    2. Yes, but I have a weakness for books that makes it hard for me to save money! Fortunately, now I mostly read books from libraries so that saves me some money, but the truth is that because of what I do (translating, tutoring), I need to invest in good books and dictionaries. Truth be told, I think I spend more money than I make, but it is not my fault that nobody appreciates teaching and intellectual work anymore...but that's another subject.

      I meant to say stitching not sticking....I always make typos when I'm tired. To get back on the topic, I think that there are both up and down size to the way things are produced nowadays. It's a complex issue...and even if we wanted to, we wouldn't be able to get back to the old days. However, I'm really amazed at the quality of one second hand leather bag I recently got as a gift from my dear friend. Who knows how old it is, but you can really see it was done by hand and I love that.

      Delete
    3. Books can be so expensive, I know. Therefore I buy mostly second-hand-books. But it is really a pity that nobody appreciates teaching and intellectual work anymore ... also exactly this kind of work enriches our world! Wish you will in the end get the money you deserve for what you do.

      Don't worry about the typos, I'm even make typos when I'm not tired :) And I agree it is not possible to get back to the old days and in my opinion this wouldn't make sense. Therefore I think also it is more senseless to live like in the past and to avoid the modern things we have at the moment like some people try to do. Nevertheless I'm happy with you that the bag you got has such a good quality!

  100. Hi Rena,
    I think that there is a huge difference between paying 20 and 2000 Euros for a handbag. If it was 20 and the bag broke, then it wouldn't hurt so bad. But when you speak about a 2000 Euro or even more handbag then it's a whole different story. It is absolutely not acceptable for these things to have any flaw at all whatsoever. That's why you pay for that ridiculous amount - you pay for the quality.

    Hope your bag comes back in pristine condition.
