The Longchamp Le Pliage is a great bag with one fault - it's much too popular. I see them all over New York. However, they are really useful. They are extremely durable, they are waterproof, they fit a lot, and they are easy to wash and take care of. I have two now - an Eiffel tower one that I got like three or four years ago, and a new one that I will be showing you now! :)The reason I decided to get a new Le Pliage is because my current one is a little beat up and the design is coming off. :( Then again, I have been using it for years and throwing it around, putting it on the floor, stuffing it into a gym locker, etc. I need to get the corners of it patched up, but it has served me incredibly well.
The one I got is the larger Le Pliage with the long handles. It was the last one left in NYC, I believe, because I contacted or personally visited all the stores. For some reason, I put off ordering it online, and then all of their sale bags disappeared. The large Le Pliage bags with the long handles are usually $145, and this one was on sale for $116. That's not even why I wanted it though - I just love this color! I don't like the other red that Longchamp makes as much. This color is called "Grape." As soon as I saw that Longchamp's website didn't have the sale Le Pliage bags anymore, I e-mailed their Spring Street store and went to the store on Madison, and they told me they had none left. Then, later in the day, the Spring Street store e-mailed me again and said that they had one left. I ordered it on the phone yesterday and it arrived today. I absolutely love it!
Here it is all folded up. It's so great that you can fold these up, because they are so easy to carry around within another bag just in case it rains or something.
Here are my two Le Pliage bags together:
I also got a new Chanel nail polish this week - Rouge Fatal. I have to say, this might be my favorite Chanel color.
