Good News

December 15, 2009

Sigh. That spy pic really brought back my craving for a So Kelly…  I took a break and started browsing around, here is a cheaper alternative to the So Kelly… the Hermès Good News (SRP $3,300).  BUT if you don’t mind pre-loved pristine bags ( is a good option – they sell very good second hand/hardly used bags – no experience but all the responses about them seem to be good – if I’m not mistaken they are the people behind bagsnob), they have a pristine Good News selling for only $1,495: see more pics here, pic below from kaleidoplace with their watermark on the corner:

More or less the same shape (at least face view, the bottom of this bag is oval so the profile is different), but same beautiful leather (without the trademark Kelly Clasp though) this is a good option if you find yourself in a “beggars can’t be choosers” category 🙂

Another option is the Marwari (still a little cheaper $3150) and available online, but it’s more of a messenger actually, but I think the straps are adjustable…

The best is still the So.K… there’s a beautiful brand new orange one on ebay:

    Hmm. I like the So Kelly the best of them all. Definitely don’t settle. As for me, I really want a Kelly Pochette. Find one for me? 😉

    Here’s a pochette:

    There are actually so many pre-loved and brand new on ebay from authentic sellers… don’t you want the So.K in brown? it costs as much as the pochette!

    I think you should get an exotic skin So K – crocodile or ostrich. If you’re waiting until 2011 might as well go all the way!

    I actually like the Marwari. Looks like a good casual piece but I agree with NZA, don’t settle because the So. K is SO much better.
    Any pristine Lindy’s on sale?

    You’re right. The pochette is quite mahal…I would rather get a bigger bag for the same price. But its just so elegant. Its okay, I’m not in the market right now. Still need to recover from Christmas shopping….
