I was debating whether or not to tell you guys about that time I owned the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag for like 5 minutes but hey, I know you will all be nice to me so here goes. 🙂 I’ve been dreaming about owning a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag for a long, long time but I felt way too guilty spending that kind of money on myself and of course let’s not forget the fact that it’s pretty much impossible to find one anyway because they are always sold out. Anyway, I was scrolling through instagram and I happened to come across a photo from Mansur Gavriel’s photo where someone had just commented at that moment that they restocked. Well, I had also just gotten Chanukah money from my grandparents and parents so I kind of impulsively just went for it and bought one. Ten minutes later it was sold out again but I got my dream bag!
My dream bag arrived just a few days later and I was too scared to use it because I had never spent so much money on a bag before and I was worried I’d ruin it. It sat in its dust bag for a few days and when my friend found out I had it, she asked (begged?) if she could buy it off me. I happily agreed as long as she would let me take pictures of it first. So here’s the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag that I owned for a week or two!
I am still on the hunt for a bucket bag, one that seems a bit more sturdy than the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and is a little cheaper. I found a few I have my eye on which I linked to at the bottom of the post (disable your ad block to view them) so I’m just trying to make my final decisions! 😉 Some of my favorites include the gorgeous blue Elizabeth and James bucket bag, Rebecca Minkoff moto bucket bag, Gigi New York bucket bag, Milly bucket bag in a beautiful shade of blue, Halston Heritage bucket bag, the more affordable but still beautiful Kelsi Dagger bucket bag, another decent priced with the Madewell bucket bag, and a splurge with the quilted ALice and Olivia bucket bag.
