    Default Advice for my very first Louis

    My dad has agreed to get me a Speedy for my upcoming 21st birthday.
    I am most interested in the Damier, Damier Azul, and the Mono. I don't know which size would be most practical though. I am around 5'7" and carry your typical amount of stuff in my purse (Wallet, keys, coin purse, sunglass case, some wristlet, etc.)

    I know the Mono is a timeless classic, but I know how replicated it is, and I worry that until the straps start to darken people will just see it as some fake purse, especially in this college town.
    The Damier Azul I am afraid I won't be able to use in winter (I live in Colorado)
    And the Damier is beautiful as well but is it isn't considered to be a more "mature" pattern is it?

    Size wise i am considering either a 25 or 30. Input?

    This is my first LV and probably last for a long time so I want to make sure it is a bag I won't get sick of, will go out of style, and I will have forever (and look good on me of course).

    I'm new to all this

    I'd go for the 30, I think it's the perfect size! Keep us updated on your decision!

    the 30 is kinda perfect!!! the mono, damier azul, damier and epi leather are all soooo beautiful. you can't go wrong w/the speedy 30. 25 is just the right size but you'll grow out of it fast!!! :)

    I would definitely get the 30, in either damier or damier azul.

    I have a 30 Damier Azur and it's my favorite bag. It's good for winter or summer, doesn't get dirty at all, and goes with everything!

    Definitely a 30, it will fit everything you need and go well with your height.

    As for pattern, I would also go with damier! I have a damier speedy and I love it - you don't have to worry about vachetta, and it can be used in all weather, rain or shine. It's so gorgeous!

    Good luck on choosing your first LV!

    ~ITA w/ pingping. I think this would be a perfect bag for you, I see more and more younger ppl opted for the Damier Ebene pattern. Good luck!~

    Hi there! How exciting, your first LV! Your dad is lovely for suggesting a bag as a present. I agree with Damier Ebene 30.
    30 coz you're 5'7", 25 would be too small for you and if you are planning to use it for a long time, bigger is better.
    Since you're not keen on vachetta and the fact that mono is ubiquitous, definitely go for Ebene.
    About your concern that it might be a mature looking design, IMO it is not but I think that one you have to decide yourself as you're the one carrying it. Aside from that, I think Ebene 30 is the perfect choice
    Good luck deciding and don't forget to let us know what you choose
