For the last few months I have been absolutely loving the idea of making a Louis Vuitton bag mine mine mine! I always hated the idea of dishing out hundreds of dollars for an authentic Louis, because they make SUCH good fakes nowadays, and everyone would probably just assume that mine was a knock off....Well I have come to terms with the idea that people can think what they want, and that I would FEEL absolutely amazing carrying a beauty like that (real of course). Although there are many beautiful models of LV bags, and although word on the street is that hobo bags are on their way out, I am drawn toward the gorgeous slouchy care-free nature of the speedy handbag. I also love the idea that simply placing a cardboard piece in the bottom can create a more structured look, should I ever feel more neat and tidy with my bags. I, like many girls, absolutely need a larger bag, ergo my first dilemna. The speedy 30 is probably big enough.....but is it BIG enough? The 35 is sort of inbetween....but if i'm going to go for that size, should I just go all the way and go for the 40? This is where I need help from all you speedy owners....give me your input :)
The last dilemna....of course.....is the print. Now I do love the bright colorful prints of the multicolour, and grafitti bags, but they are wayyyyy out of my price range. I have narrowed it down to 2 beauties. The monogram canvas, and the damier azur. Monogram canvas is classic and lovely, can be worn through all seasons, and when the straps start to tan, it doesn't offset the bag, as it matches the dark leather on the body.
The azur however, is just gorgeous. The crip light print is perfect for spring and summer, and I am always drawn to lighter clothing and sccessories to offset my dark hair (does that even make sense? lol.) This is the perfect bag for me, except for one thing. When the straps tan, they get darker and darker, and eventually it looks really really awkward against the light print of the bag. So any suggestions as to how to keep the straps light, would be much appreciated, and would make my decision much easier.
So in summary, what are your favourite LV print/size combos? Maybe one I didn't mention?
