    I'd pick the Epi Speedy. It would make a great everyday bag and will withstand the test of time.

    I would go with the Speedy or Galliera.... I was going to get the Bellevue, but a lot of ppl said that the base is very wide, and when i went to LV i did find it a little too wide...Speedy is a classic..but I'd probably get the Galliera, that is a beautiful bag! Good luck...Can't wait to see what you get~

    I LOVE the vernis alma! I'm torn between the red or purple myself. It's so fresh and fun in all colors! GET THE ALMA

    Go the Alma. Classic style, LOVE the leather and the color.

    I found the Epi Speedy 30 too hard to get in and out of.

    Alma! Alma!! Alma!!!

    I love speedies! I have an alma too, but that one I wear more when I'm dressed up. You'll get more use out of the speedy.

    Totally. I just recently got a base shaper for my speedy. It looks great and they're like $15 on eBay.

    Here's what mine looks like with a shaper:

    Well I say Speedy since it a clasic.. AS far as the sagging you, you can get a base shaper on ebya for like 15 so it doent sag.. Alma since it patent leather it's bound to go out of style..

    I would say a Galleria or Neverfull. They are both classic and perfect for everyday. Also, I love my Bat vertical.

    I don't think the Galleria, Neverfull, or Tivoli are classic bags. They are all very new to LV. I would go with a classic like the Speedy, it has been around longer than you and me, plus a small accessory.
    If you like structure the Alma has a structured bottom. HTH!!

    When in doubt...you can never go wrong with a classic speedy! And, if you ever decide to get rid of it you can always sell it on eBay.

I wear the speedy style much more.

    If you think you can wear purple everyday then go for it. Epi leather will look practically new forever and is much stiffer than mono canvas. If it still sags too much for you then put a magazine in the bottom or get an actual base shaper.
    Same here!!
