I was wanting to buy a Selma since like forever but we don't have a showroom here and when I heard that Quest Mall at Kolkata had a MK store as well, I was literally jumping. So, when I went to my mom's place we quickly made plans and went to Kolkata for shopping mostly :P
See my Kolkata Haul Post, HERE.
I had already decide what I wanted to buy, Michael Kors Selma Large in the color white but it was Out Of Stock and I had a hard time deciding the color. I am glad that I bought the bright red ( which looked more orange at the showroom ) instead of the white,which would get dirty easily.
The Selma comes in four sizes ~ Small, Medium, E/W Large, and N/S Large) and a dozen colors. It has elements of the Birkin ~ similar dimensions, a structured, boxy shape and metal feet and the Prada tote ~ simple top handle design with a logo in the front and constructed of the same material - saffiano leather.
The interior of the bag has a monogram lining. It is very spacious, with lots of pockets and a strap attachment for keys. The bag has a detachable, adjustable long strap, metal feet and handheld straps which fold down. I am completely in love with this bag and I think its perfect for travel/work.
Now coming to the not-so-good part ~ I paid ₹36000 for this bag and I am so regretting right now :( I will tell you why?

And the REGRET PART comes here. At Shopbop, the Bag is available for $468.62 only, after paying the customs i.e. ₹28450 approx. I am still not being able to digest the fact that I paid almost 7.5K extra for the bag. So, you guys, if you have this particular bag in your mind, don't make the same mistake as I did and go buy it from Shopbop HERE.
