For this weeks video I unbox 2 Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bagsl! I’m obsessing over this handbag- it’s super gorgeous! My dilemma is which one?! They’re both super gorgeous! Vegetable tanned or Saffiano? The Vegetable tanned leather looks satiny smooth almost like butter- it has a nice blurred sheen to it whereas the Saffiano is well… Saffiano- durable, tough & oh-so-stunning as well.
I purchased these bags from Barneys New York & Net a Porter. For Australian orders Barneys use a parcel forwarder Borderfree whom send the confirmation email & parcel which takes 1-5 days to confirm your purchase. They took 5 days to confirm with me. The same with Opening Ceremony it took a dreaded 6 days actually.
My first attempt at a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag was from Opening Ceremony. I was on their notification list for pre orders. Once I received that email- I went straight to the Mini bucket bag US$495+ $35 shipping & purchased the bag. I went back to their website to refresh the page & it sold out I was pretty sure I got the last one. I checked my email straight away as well & got the order confirmation email with a receipt number so I was jumping with JOY!
I also checked my bank account & the transaction was showing pending approved which disappeared after 5 days. Only to receive an email 6 days later saying my order cannot be fulfilled in this shipment. I had the choice to still wait (a month and a half- too long) for the Mini or get 10% off storewide & on other Mansur Gavriel bags left aside as an apology with an access code to view these bags on their website. I passed.
So I kept scouring the internet daily (it’s quite exhausting really) & finally came across Barneys. When I say Saturday night it was on a night where I skipped going to my Aunties dinner party because I felt ill, yeh right, well its an excuse to get my hands on a bucket bag & Bucket Bag I got! A Barneys exclusive as well! Win Win.
I did the same thing that I did with Opening Ceremony. Kept checking my bank account & emails like a crazy lady. LOL.
But the next day on Sunday my waitlist from Net a Porter came up & I just said I’ll snatch this up because I don’t want to miss out again if Barneys get back to me with bad news. 3 days later I received my Net a Porter box & still no confirmation email from Barneys. I was excited yet I was nervous because here I had a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag in my hands but didn’t know what to do.
I decided to wait until I received my Barneys order to unbox both of them so I will have a good first impressions of both at once. I’m so glad I did!
