Hi everyone!!
I'm so excited, this is my first ever post on Louis Vuitton Bag!!
Been following off and on for several years then had a break when I paused my luxury bag spending- but I have two incredible Antigonas and a total of 3 bag purchases I want to share!!!

Givenchy had 50% off for their annual sale. I'd seen the Black Triangle Patch initially, couldn't decide and it sold out- was so disappointed.

Then I went to another Givenchy store interstate- and they had not only the patch bag in black, but in GREY as well!!

I couldn't decide!!!

Which one would you have picked?

So I picked the Black initially; it's my first ever Givenchy bag purchase, and the SA very wisely reminded me that the Black never goes on sale. I love love LOVE the rock chick tough feminine aesthetic this design brings. Initially I wasn't a huge fan of the patchwork. But once I'd left the store, I couldn't stop thinking about it!!

The Grey also gives that tough luxe aesthetic- but I was nervous- would Grey be timeless for my taste? Could I wear it to work, like I also intend to with the Black?

I love the Black, but the Grey gives a slightly different character. The patches stand out more IMO. And I had this incredible warm flutter of JOY whenever I looked at the Grey.

I kept returning to the store to gawk at the Grey even after purchasing the Black. I felt so guilty! I work hard, have a lot of expenses lately but it was also my birthday coming up; Givenchy rarely do sales; I am not one to buy a bag a year (let alone 3); and some significant career milestones were achieved. When I got a huge promotion three years ago, I couldn't find a lovely black or neutral boss lady bag that I liked, and so I was carrying a battered Alexander Wang canvas tote to work- it's a great bag too but felt out of place.

I haven't owned any fully zip-top bags in like, 5 years- I have gotten accustomed to having my belongings in plain view and reach, but have LOVED having a full ziptop again since purchasing the Antigona.

And gosh, 50% off!! I wouldn't have felt so good if I'd purchased my Antigonas full price.

So I ended up revisiting and BOUGHT THE GREY TOO- and was SOOOOO HAPPY!!!

They complement each other so well!!

Oh, and there was a 50% off sale on the large Mansur Gavriel Black and Ballerina VTL bucket- it seemed crazy, I am not one to buy TWO luxe bags in one day let alone 3 in 1 week- but the bucket bag is so beautiful and useful, too.

So I got that too!!

Now I feel so satisfied!!!! No more bags for the year :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
I feel so motivated to continue working and saving (and building my other savings in non-bag areas) too!! The joy these bags bring is so worth it to me!

Megs, if you ever read this- your MG Bucket Bag and Antigona Purseonals were so helpful when I considered these purchases- thank you and Vlad for creating such a wonderful space for us to peruse and share!

I did wonder- was I crazy to want to purchase two of the same distinctive pattern and style of bag? I read some of the previous threads on this topic, but given the patch is so distinctive on this one, was doubting myself- I'm so glad i stopped caring what others may think, it's my money and my purchase, and I love how I can wear them for different looks and moods! And half price, wow!

Those are so, so beautiful. I have admired the Antigona for years! Such a classic shape! Do you mind me asking - when does Givenchy have their annual sale (internet searches were not particularly helpful) and is it in person only or online as well? If they do 50% off I can and will wait another year and then finally scoop up an Antigona for myself.

That is my absolute FAVE antigona style—and I totally agree with you about the colors. Both are gorgeous (and irresistible)! Congrats on your beautiful new bags!!
