You see people side by side each other carrying the same brand of bag – Longchamp – but in different colors and designs. My sister owns one in tangerine. She bought it from a groupon site and was her Christmas gift to herself last year. It was supposed to be teal but the groupon site made a mistake. Returning the item was such a hassle so she stick with the color she got.
Anyway. So I see lots of people carrying this type of bag. And honestly, I do not see the difference between the original ones and those inspired by the originals. The original one costs about $150-200 while the latter may be bought at less than $20. My sister bought her at 50% discount from the groupon site and up until now, I wonder how could that be possible. Either this bag is really over-priced in the market or the groupon site sold the inspired-version not the original.
I simply want to say that I do not get why people got so into this tote. I heard some collected all the colors available. Why? Even if I have the money, I do not like this bag because it lacks form for me. Everything just goes to the bottom. And its material, it is simply nylon, what is so special with that? Plus you see it almost everywhere!
Maybe it is just me. How about you, what is your take about Longchamp totes?
