Today I’m doing my official 1 month review since getting my Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Mini Backpack. I can’t believe I’ve already spent 4 weeks with this little bag, it’s brought me so much happiness I can’t even explain it! Up until this bag I’ve only ever owned one other designer handbag which is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull. Making the decision to purchase this bag was both a blessing and a curse. I love it more than anything and will probably keep it forever, but it’s opened up a world of doors into the joys of owning trending designer pieces. I did make one other designer purchase since getting this bag, I splurged on the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette. I can’t put into words how blessed I feel to own not 1, not 2, but 3 designer bags. I am HOOKED! Quality is 10/10, appearance 10/10, functionality 10/10. I have things I love about each one of my bags and I finally understand why people invest in quality pieces. If you asked me a year ago I would have thought you were insane for spending so much money on a purse! But these pieces are timeless and they LAST! Anyways, lets get into the review.
My Shopping Experience
I found my Palm Springs Mini gently used on Poshmark and I saved some $ by purchasing it that way. I didn’t mind if it was pre-owned as long as you couldn’t visibly tell. My bag came in it’s original packaging with it’s dustbag and paperwork. It was also mailed out to Poshmark head quarters for authentication before being sent to me. I would highly recommend shopping through Poshmark or Stockx if you’re into luxury bags and don’t mind it being pre-owned.
The Palm Springs Mini is just that, “mini”. But you’d be surprised at how much you can fit inside. Inside my bag I keep my phone, wallet, keys, sunglasses, hand sanitizer, face mask, lip gloss, gum, Airpods, and more. It holds everything in the center compartment. The small zipper compartment is not ideal for storing things because it’s difficult to access, so I typically keep something I won’t be reaching for a whole lot in that compartment or I leave it empty. I love that this bag can be worn as a backpack, a crossbody, or by the top strap in your hand. It’s versatile and goes with literally EVERYTHING! I have dressed it up and dressed it down. My favorite way to wear it is with a casual look off one shoulder. Overall, the design is perfect if your somebody that is used to carrying a crossbody bag this will fit all of the essentials you’re used to carrying.
Wear + Tear
So I’ve been using this bag for just over 4 weeks now and although that’s not THAT long it’s proven to be great quality. I am not gentle with my bags, my hair, my nails, or anything! This bag can handle being thrown into the back seat of my car, shoved into a suitcase, or tucked away under a pile of clothes in my closet. Despite everything it’s been through the presence of this bag is pristine. It shows no marks, scuffs, scratches, or creasing. I truly expect it to stay that way too. Prior to buying this bag I did a lot of my own research, so that combined with my experience with my Neverfull I knew this one would likely have the same great quality.
Is this bag one of the greatest things to ever happen to me? Yes. No exaggeration lol! It was a pretty penny, but it was worth it to me. I feel like when you really want something the price is worth it to you regardless. I work hard and I love a good “Treat Yo’ Self” moment. I think overall, if you are thinking about getting it you should do it. A bag like this isn’t one that you’d ever regret buying. It’s neutral, small in size, A+ in quality, and will compliment any outfit you wear.
