    Default Awww Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan


    So I found a speedy 30 on craigslist for $175. I contacted seller, adn she was so awesome! She emailed me back right away. She offered pics and descriptions, and she was just fabulous! She said she didn't know if it was real or not. Upon further questioning, I think it's not. Everything pointed to yes, but she said the LV's are not upside down on the back side.

    Is it vintage? The French Company Speedy had the LVs right side up on both sides with a leather strip covering a seam on the bottom of the bag. Can you post pics?

    Yeah that's what I was going to ask too.. That would be a pretty sweet deal if it were in fact authentic.

    I just emailed her again, and she responded almost immediately. She said she is not at home right now but will send me more pics as soon as she gets there. When I get them, i will post them and see what ya'll think. I had already deleted the emails between us except for one very fuzzy pic that slipped by. I'll see if I can swing post that one.

    Sorry luv, I think it might be fake... If it was vintage then the leather wouldn't be so pale... Look on the brighter side though, at least she didn't say straight out that its auth, KWIM?

    Don't worry you'll find what's meant for you...

    Yeah - if it was vintage the leather would be really dark, and even if she had the handles replaced, the other leather would be dark. Also the fleurs aren't exactly lined up right, although they are close.

    I agree with lilstrlett and juicyholicmum, the speedy in your pic. looks bran new, and the fleurs are not in perfect allignment!

    So sorry, I hope you have luck in the future getting your speedy!

    I would suggest checking out eBay, if you don't mind getting a pre-loved bag, where it has darkened a little. You would probably end up spending more than $175 on it, but if you had it authenticated here before you bought it, at least you would know that you were paying for a real LV, and not a replica.

    After seeing the pic, I have to agree with everyone else. It's a good thing you hadn't already bought it.

    Yeah I was pretty sure it was fake as well, and I don't hardly anything about LV. LOL
    I got my hopes up for a min when someone mentioned vintage, but then the handles were too light for that soo...

    At any rate, one day lol...
