Melie Bianco handbag– http://www.meliebianco.com/
I recently purchased this Melie Bianco handbag for a fraction of it’s worth at Burlington Coat Factory. Gotta love Burlington Coat Factory! The only problem is that the one I got didn’t have the lock and key hanging from it like you see in the picture. I imagine some antsy kid in the store waiting hours for their mom to choose a handbag decided to take them off and hide them in the hosiery section.
I guess that’s what you’re risking by shopping at Burlington Coat Factory and getting things for shockingly lower prices. I still absolutely love it though. I was in the market for a gray purse. I have handbags in beige, camel, black and tan already, gray was the only neutral I was missing! It matches with everything. I’m sure you will see it featured in many outfits to come.
The same bag is being sold right now on their website in some really great summer colors. This website has so many other amazing purses too and even at full price, they’re still quite reasonable, none exceeding $200 or so.
Anyways… I decided to write this hopeful letter to the websites customer service requesting the lock and key decor for the bag, only to get a letter back stating they cannot do this for me since I didn’t purchase it through them directly. Pff..after all my bribing, begging and flattery…I thought I may have had a chance. Oh well. It was worth a try (YOLO!) Still love their purses!
Stay in vogue!
Letter I wrote to Melie Bianco… this is me attempting to be persuasive:
So this is a shot in the dark, but here’s my story:
I purchased a Melie Bianco bag at Burlington Coat Factory in Burbank, CA. I had never heard of the brand before, but I fell in love with the bag the moment I saw it (and of course the fact that it was $100 but I was getting it for $40 at Burlington). But I am so obsessed with it that I decided to research the brand and naturally came to your website. I plan to purchase several more bags from the website directly, at full retail price, because there are so many great ones that I probably won’t find at a place like Burlington Coat Factory, not to mention I want to fully support this wonderful brand.
As I’m browsing your handbags online, I came across the bag that I purchased at Burlington Coat Factory. It is the Elizabeth ML1018 (except mine is in the “bone” color). I then noticed to my dismay that the one I have from Burlington had the adorable lock and key taken off of it! I feel this touch really adds to the character of the bag and now I’m so disappointed that mine doesn’t have it. What are the chances you guys would be able send me the lock and key in the bone color so I can add them to my bag? I would be willing to pay however much you think is fair for these essential accessories.
I know this is probably such a strange request but I figure it’s absolutely worth a try! Thank you SO much for taking the time to hear me out and please let me know one way or the other as soon as you’re able to respond. If you were able to do this for me I would be thrilled and be even more in love with Melie Bianco than I already am! Also, either way, I’ll be sure to introduce you guys to all of my purse loving friends, because I don’t think enough people are aware of these amazing handbags!
Thanks again and I look forward to hearing back from a member of the Melie Bianco team.
