thanks chicandcool, it is supposed to arrive tomorrow and i cannot wait!

i say probably nay to the donna karan dress, mostly for reasons stated above. although, the dress does look very nice in many of the different styles that it can be worn.

should i buy the row leather leggings? i know they are really expensive but i am obsessed with the black ones, and they're so soft in person but.... idk if they are really worth $1700. i could buy a proenza schouler PS1 with this money.

@black, nay. I would definitely go with the PS1 for $1700 . I don't think leggings are ever worth more than $195, maybe. Just my opinion, but if the leggings really make you happy then go for them? I just think the price point is overkill.

I agree, too expensive even if they are super nice and the leather is super soft. There is a good variety of leather leggings out there for a fraction of the price. Go for the PS1 instead. Better investment imo.

Nay. If it's a choice between the leggings and the PS1 go with the PS1.

^ thank you guys so much! you have just talked me out of them which i am glad for because they are really too expensive. now i have another dilemma

THE PS1 in grey suede or leather. i have two diff SA's holding them for me but i can't decide. both of these colors are sold-out too so i have to act fast or i miss my opportunity. this has been my dream bag for the past year but it is $1995 and i really need clothes. if i get this bag, i won't be able to buy clothes for a while.

so i ask you YAY or NAY to the PS1?
if YAY, which beautiful color? i worry about the suede getting messed up, i don't take care of my bags but i prefer the darker color of the suede.

I would worry about the suede too, and the lighter grey is nice, but the darker one is just gorgeous. So reservations aside, I would go with that one anyway.

black: I'd go for the grey (smoke) leather version. Since I saw both IRL, and I find the prettiest. I have the midnight large in leather myself. I would btw say, that the suede version is much more blue and steel'ish IRL. Not grey!

massive YAY to the DONNA KARAN jersey infinity dress! its an investment piece and noone makes dresses like she does. it will make you feel a million dollars!

i would have also yayed the leather leggings by THE ROW as i have been working with them for a while and can quite frankly say that no other brand is cut as well as these are!

however,in this case i will
YAY the PS1 in smoke (or moss) leather which to me is the ultimate bag of the moment and for years to come! go for it!!!

YAY to the grey leather version. My coral one is also made of leather and I like that it's super soft and gets slouchier with wear.

Black, 1700 is really too much even though they are great. The Row has great stuff but the prices are waaay rediculous imo (for the stuff they make). Yay to the bags. I love em both but I prefer the grey leather one! Pretty color. The dark suede kinda looks dirty and old even when it's new..I think it's easier to keep the grey clean as well.
