Which Lonchamp to choose?

Hey hey everyone!

I’ve mentioned before that I have a passion for the Longchamp Le Pliage bag. I like it because it is big, I’ve heard great reviews about it and it comes in great colors. And I’m in extreme need of a light, classy and timeless bag.

Getting one was never really an option because I never found a store here in Portugal that sold them and getting them shipped home from the online shop costs about 150€ total and that is just too much for me.
Which Lonchamp to choose?
This last Monday I happened to go into El Corte Ingles, a big store that has about everything, including a designer bag section. We’re talking Michael Kors, Tous, Prada and as I came to find out, Longchamp. I went to their space and found my loved Le Pliage bag, thinking it would be a bad idea for me to actually see how much it is…but when I looked at the price tag instead of the 150€ I was expecting, it showed 75€.

Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t exactly inexpensive! But then again, it is a very good bag that would last me forever and is also waterproof. It wouldn’t hurt my shoulder and my stuff would stay dry during rainy days!

My birthday is in exactly two months and I’ve decided to save up money and finally invest in this timeless love of mine! My only problem now is, which color to choose?? I had though about a taupe-like color..because it goes with everything and, well, it’s one of my favorite colors!! But then I saw this bright red one..and the dark brown..and I’m torn..which one to get?

I will probably end up getting the taupe one anyway..but I would really like to know what YOU guys think! 

Have a great week!!
