The Pochette Metis :: Take 2

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Sharing the latest addition to my handbag collection - the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis. If you've been following my handbag purchases, then you know I had this bag for a hot minute. It was a preowned bag. My first impression? I was underwhelmed by it considering how popular it was (is). I ended up returning it. A year later, I purchased the Coach Cassie as an alterative. I've been using the Cassie for quite some time and it works perfectly for my lifestyle. I also mentioned in that post that I find the strap was too stiff. If I remember correctly, the preowned bag was made in 2015. Since then, Louis Vuitton has made a few changes and released a newer version in 2019. Since I really love the functionalities of the bag, I decided to give it another try. This time, I purchased the bag directly from the Louis Vuitton website. The bag was made in the 2nd week of 2021. I was debating for the longest time if I should go with the classic monogram or the reserve monogram. At the end, I decided to stick with the classic. I always have a soft spot for the classic Louis Vuitton monogram. My first impression of the bag was definitely different this time. I love it. The strap is softer. The canvas is thicker but it's more matte than the previous version. Some people might see it as a con but I personally prefer it. Since the canvas looks more matte, the monogram print doesn't stand out as much. All in all, I am thrilled that this bag is back in my collection. This time, it's here to stay =)
