Ditto. I tend to like the 2 year wear/tear or 5 year wear/tear handbag videos b/c those are true owners of the bag and they will KNOW about the bag and the pros/cons. Owning a bag for 1 day or even 1 month - not a great way to judge it at all. You need to be using the bag regularly for a quality review, of anything, really. I like unboxing videos in most categories, especially electronics, to see what you are supposed to get inside the box and how the item should come packaged, with like accessories and such. I don't care one bit for unboxings of bags or accessories.I have never understood the whole appeal of unboxing videos. Vicarious living, maybe? Why not get something you own or do a swap with a friend, have them wrap prettily it for you and open it? Voila! Non-vicarious thrill!
Maybe it’s me, since I buy things for form, function, quality and longevity....whether it’s wrapped in tissue, ribbon and has a fancy box means nothing to me and will matter even less after you had a bag for a year or two. Initial impressions are just that....initial impressions. A cheap plastic bag can have a great initial impression, but how will it look next year? I want to know how something will wear, especially if I am spending a lot of money. I want value. I don’t wear the tissue, ribbon or box!
