Part II: Ode to GST

Dear friend Maura gives us an update to her Part I: Ode to GST
To GST or not to GST, that is the question… 


Breaking news:  We interrupt the Hermes coverage with a special Chanel report…

The GST is out and about, having been freed from its boxing and wrapping and released from its secret hideaway.  Tags were cut and plastic protection removed.  The GST is in Maura’s custody moving from home to car to Whole Foods and the like.

But seriously, why it’s taken me so long to use it probably should be the subject of a different post.  After all, the decision to keep the bag was made weeks ago when store points were redeemed as payment.  For now, suffice it to say I try not to highlight my purse purchases at home.

So far, so good. My GST with gold hardware radiates class and beauty. As I predicted, it’s also spacious.  I easily transferred stuff from my Hermes Evelyne and there’s significant room to spare. Careful packing of my belongings was unnecessary.  The long key chain attachment allowed me to open my front door without detaching the keys.  My phone comfortably occupied the outside pocket. The bag behaved nicely and stayed on my car passenger seat, both buckled and unbuckled (yes, I sometimes buckle bags so they don’t fall and empty on the floor).  Most of the time the bag stayed well on my shoulder over my bulky coat.

With the maiden voyage behind us, I’m optimistic that this is the beginning of a very satisfying relationship between me and my GST.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

  • I´m so glad Maura is happy with her GST :) I truly love this bag, think it´s perfect for everyday use while remaining classy and chic!
    PS: I also buckle up my bags sometimes hahaha I´ve had it with the bag falling and having to pick it´s contents from the floor.
