    Default I need Louis Vuitton advice!

    This week I'll be buying my first LV, and i am SO excited ! There's a store here too so i will be definitly be going there. I already have a bag and size picked out and all the money saved up for it! (neverfull pm, it's simple and not too big good starter bag for me!) But i have no experience at all with Louis Vuitton ! So i really hope you girls can help me out!
    I'm the 1st one out of 2 sisters and my mom to get a LV so they have no advice to give me so i have a few questions!:

    1st, how do you keep the leather looking as new as possible? i know it wears over time but if there's any secret tips that would be great!
    2nd, LV vocab? i don't wanna just waltz into the store and have no idea what i'm talking about!
    and 3rd, any other general advice would be great! this is my 1st nice bag and i don't want to kill it by making an amateur mistake!

    Thank you for reading through my huge boring paragraphs! And i look forward to any tips!

    ~ Sarah

    The Neverfull is a good bag but the PM is very small. I think the MM would be perfect. Are you wanting Monogram, Damier, or Azur?

    How exciting!!

    Congrats on your future LV purchase! I think the Neverfull is great!

    Most gals like the patina that develops over time, but if you want to keep the leather looking newer for longer then I would suggest Lovin' My Bags For Handles Only.

    Try not to carry your bag by the handles, but since you will be getting the PM, it's near impossible. Since the MM is only $50 more I think it might be feasible for you to go up in size. It would be perfect for you to bring to school, and great for when you want to use it on the weekends.

    That is correct. You shouldn't touch the leather after putting lotion on your hands or if your hands are dirty.

    I treated mine with Apple Garde Rain & Stain Repellant spray to protect the Vachetta leather and I think it worked great. I have also used Wilson's Leather TLC spray and it works just as well if not better. The spray also helped to keep the leather from turning to a dark patina so fast.

    I agree with lilstrlett, for $50 you get a lot more bag. The Neverfull MM and GM seem very large "tote-style" but when you cinch the sides in they become quite "purse-like". The NF is a great bag IMO, I love mine!!
    I am also thinking about getting an Azur NF!

    ITA with Lils and Zombs, for $50 more I'd go for the MM, it looks a lot more comfortable.

    Sorry for not saying anything about the other thing!

    As far as LV vocab... well, it's just one of those things you get over time. Maybe go through the LV section of TBF and look over things, maybe that will help you - knowing what the styles are, what things are called, etc. Don't let the SAs (sales associates) intimidate you. And don't let the store or experience make you feel awkward on inexperienced. I know the first time I went into the LV store I felt awkward, but eventually I got over it. This is your first big purchase and it should be enjoyable, and it will be!

    I'm excited for you!

    Your first Louis Vuitton!!! Omg, how exciting! Love the Neverfull, it's a great choice - you can't go wrong with that style. It's spacious, and stylishly amazing. About the size -PMvsMMvsGM- when you go to LV feel them out, to get an idea which works best for you. The PM is teeny, but if that suits you, then I say go for it.

    And I totally agree with lil about the vocab. I remember my first time in the LV store, I walked through, inquiring about each bag...actually I even occasionally do that now, when there's like a new style or something that I just want to hear the correct pronunciation of. I never try pronouncing on my own, I usually just go over to the section and the associate would just start talking about the collection. I mean over time the names and how to pronounce just stick in your head. You'll get the hang of it. Also, "Louis Vuitton Monogram Neverfull" is an easy one

    Oh and about keeping your purse looking forever young, since it's a shoulder bag you really don't have that much to worry about - compared to hand bags. Like what was mentioned above, be careful to only touch your purse with clean hands so the leather ages nicely.

    BTW, you gotta post some 's!
