Inspire Me Inspires Swooning
I wanted to take a minute out to write you a letter to let you know how admired my Inspire Me in chestnut chevre was this past week.
I traveled to Minnesota for a work trip, and took some time out to go visit the Mall of America, a major shopping area here in the states (HUGE 4 story mall with every imaginable store)...
Anyways, I, of course, went to Nordstroms, a high end designer store, and looked in the handbag department. I saw all the major premier designers, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, Gucci, Chanel...just enjoyed browsing.
I tell you this, because I was carrying my Inspire Me in chestnut chevre...and I had sales associates in these areas asking me about my bag...where I got it, complimenting the design, quality, and feel of the soft chevre leather. I had sales associates tell me they could easily sell my bag there...and I had another, after touching my bag and feeling it, make me go touch the Lanvin lambskin bags as it was the closest thing to the feel of the chevre they could compare it to. I could not believe the attention my bag caused. I of course told them about BE, and how the bags are made in Italy, by a skilled atelier and sold by a UK based company. I also had some accessories on hand, like my anthracite coin,mottled gold business case, and my purple crinkle leather lined AP...I of course showed these off as well.
Anyways, I just thought that this would make your day, as it made mine, since I am only able to carry such a beautiful bag because you designed it, and together with Marco you sourced beautiful leather, and Marco and his team built a wonderful quality bag that anyone can see it. I was proud to carry a bag that makes people who are surrounded by beautiful bags for a living swoon in admiration, and love knowing I have a one of a kind, and because of BEC, anyone can create such a beauty, and get to carry one as well, versus buying another high end brand and looking like a ton of other people!
I will say the Inspire Me is a great travel bag...allowing me to carry everything I needed, while being comfortable to carry, and I love having the ability to zip it closed in the airport etc for security when needed, though I hardly ever do zip it on a daily basis.
While this chevre Inspire Me is the most expensive BE bag I have ever purchased, and purchased on a whim, I knew I had to have it when I saw it posted, and I have never regretted the decision to buy it...and to have others admire it, just makes me remember how special it really is.
So once again, thank you and Marco and the whole BE team for a job well done!
Hugs as always!
