    Default Curious... What do you love most about your LV bag?

    I have to admit, I've never been a big fan of LV bags in general.... Although I have always liked the big steamer trunks and the way the vachetta leather develops a rich patina over time.

    Recently though I'm drawn to the Azur bags and the shape of the new Artsy. Since I am now curious... I thought I'd ask LV lovers what they love best about their bags and why they are addicted. I may be tempted to experiement!

    Uh oh!!

    My first LV was a Monogram Speedy 30, given to me by my father, when I was a freshman in high school. I carried that bag to death and it really showed...I had no clue about keeping the handles clean and how it is a HUGE no-no to grab the handles with fresh lotion on your hands. I kind of have a love hate relationship with Louis Vuitton and after I got married I gave my abused Speedy away. I now know that Damier would have been a better choice for me back then but you live and learn.

    *Time for the sentimental history*
    My father and I share the same birthday - I was born on his 30th. I was a bratty little kid and would say, "I may have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth but my brother's was Gold!!". I've always called him "Golden Boy". Anyway, my dad called me his "Silver Baby" or "Silver Daughter". LOL He passed away due to terminal cancer when he was 59 so my 30th b'day was the first one without him. It was a very emotional time for me so my BFF and I flew to Chicago, for the weekend, to celebrate my 30th. I went into Louis Vuitton and purchased a brand spanking new Monogram Speedy 30, in remembrance of my father. After we returned to our hotel room I ripped open the gorgeous brown box to inspect my new beauty and discovered that the date code was SD0075. SD=Silver Daughter and 75= the year I was born. (Yes, I am old. LOL) Fate? Being that I have a love-hate relationship with LV I decided to have my Speedy heat stamped with my initials so that I would never sell it or give it away!
    To me the Speedy is a timeless bag that I can carry for the rest of my life. The style itself has been around since the 1930's so I never feel like it is a "trendy" bag.

    Louis Vuitton is iconic and they pride themselves in quality craftsmanship.


    Like you, I don't care too much for the Monogram print. I have tried several different Mono bags but let them go because they weren't "me". I have fallen in love with LV again and I'm giving the Damier print a try. It seems like the perfect worry-free bag.

    I think you should give Louis Vuitton, in Damier (Ebony or Azur) a try. Is there a boutique close by so you can go and play around with the bags?

    Unfortunately no close boutiques around so I'll have to wait to do that. I really appreciate your story and understand your sentimental attachment to LV! BTW, I am definitely older than you! So don't feel so old. You're still a young'un! Best to you and thanks again for your story! Those are the reasons why I'm involved (currently chair) of an event called Couture for Cancer. We bring in designer handbags and accessories from around the world to offer in an auction format to support the American Cancer Society. So, I get to apply my love and fashion of bags to helping others!

    Just wanted to add that there are so many different styles, leathers, and fabrics in Louis Vuitton. Go to the web site and look at all of the choices.

    Zombiegirl,
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful story, it made me tear up, I lost my dad just a little over two years ago, and I have had little things happen that seem like fate to me, things that happened to me and to my son, and they mean so much.
    You were so meant to get that exact bag, I believe there are no coincidences, it was meant to be....
    Thanks again for sharing

    I love mine because it was my first proper designer bag when I was 13, I got a Monogram Speedy 20 and I've had it for just short of a year now and the leather has gone patina. It's lovely, but I miss the cream colour . I love how it's a timeless bag and it screams sophisticated. It feel lovely to the touch and is just a lovely bag. I'm hoping for another LV for my 14th coming up in a month, I might go with a Damier Ebene this time? Only time will tell!
