Limited Editions - Quick to go on sale

I know I am not the only one who noticed this, but is seems like some of the newer items have been put on sale pretty quickly. On May 13th I posted that the Patchwork Summer Collection had been posted online. 6 weeks later it is on sale! I can’t believe it. This works out for me though, because I really want another Charleston Tote in Simply Violet. Now I just have to see if I can hold off until they are 40% off, but who knows if/when that will happen.

The Flower Mesh Totes, Meet Me in Paris and the Starry Night collections are also on sale. I didn’t pick anything up from those three collections, because they didn’t really interest me that much. The mesh tote seems to have limited use, I can’t imagine using it anywhere other than the beach or pool and I don’t go to either of those places very often. And Starry Night just isn’t a pattern that I am interested in.

It makes me think that I should always wait to see if a bag goes on sale. Why full price if I can wait 6 weeks and save 25%? This might only apply to the limited edition collections, but still I can wait for something to go on sale. It isn’t like I have to have anything right now, I have plenty of bags to use in the mean time. I definitely think that I will wait to buy anything out of the new Fall collection coming out on July 8th. I am not really excited about the patterns and I haven’t seen the new purses yet. Descriptions of the Julia make me interested, but I will have to wait and see.


  1. Quick question for you, do you think 'The Weekender' could be used a gym bag/day bag. I love my 'Vera' but am looking for something that closes on the top. Thanks!

  2. Yes, it could be a gym/day bag. It might be a little big though. My mom loves to travel with hers. I dont have one, I have the previous bag, the satchel. For my gym bag I use a Miller.
