Real Talk: I Bought the Bag I Thought I Wanted, But Now Another Bag Comes In a Version I Love More

Gucci

By now, you guys are probably so sick of hearing about my bag woes, but don’t discount me just yet, because I bet there are so many of you who have been in the same boat as I am right now. You think and think and think some more about your next big bag buy, over-analyze every minute detail, from the brand and the price down to the color and the size. Then, when you finally make up your mind and pull the trigger, something else comes along that you love more, but suddenly it’s too late. It took me over a year to decide that I finally wanted to commit to the Gucci Marmont Bag. I purchased it, immediately went home and threw my stuff inside, and didn’t look back. My friends all wanted to know if I was happy with my choice, and I really was! It wasn’t quite a love-at-first-sight situation, but instead I thought about my purchase from a practical standpoint as well. And once I started using my bag, I fell in love with it more and more.

One bag that I did have an immediate attraction to was the Gucci Ophidia Bag. In fact, at one point I was 99.9% sure that I was going to make it mine, but there was one major thing that was holding me back—it wasn’t black. While I already have a pretty impressive collection of bags, both those that I bought myself, a few I acquired while interning, and a bunch I was lucky enough to be gifted, one thing that my collection was seriously lacking was a classic black bag, so ultimately I decided on the Marmont in black. While it’s certainly on trend, I felt that a flap bag in black was classic enough to use for seasons to come. The Ophidia felt timeless to me in its own way, because it gives off such a vintage vibe, but I couldn’t get over the fact that it just wasn’t black. Had I already had a great black bag in my rotation, I definitely would have snagged the Ophidia over the Marmont.

Yesterday I was going about my normal Monday morning routine, which very often means checking the new arrivals on my favorite shopping sites. Perusing the internet’s most current offerings isn’t just a fun, time-sucking habit, but its part of my job. First my heart went pitter patter and then it straight-up stopped when I saw the Gucci Ophidia Bag in Black. While the bag isn’t leather—it’s suede—I’m obsessed with it. I need it. The only problem is, I can’t buy it! For a second I wanted to cry, and then I even thought about trying to sell my Marmont, but finally I talked myself down off the ledge. The timing here just wasn’t right, so I guess maybe the Ophidia just wasn’t meant to be, but I still have this gnawing feeling in my stomach that I’m going to regret not having it. If the timing is right for you, and you’re in the market for a new bag then you can snag this new black version of The Ophidia GG Small Shoulder Bag for $1,750 via Gucci.

Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever finally pulled the trigger, and then a bag you loved more seemed to materialize out of nowhere?
