    Question monogram speedy - should I?

    so for a while now i've been dying to get a lv speedy - i'm thinking the 30 would be the best size for me. i currently own two louis vuittons - one monogram pochette clutch (not sure of the exact name) which i got a few years ago (i carry it in everywhere in every bag i use) and an trocadero 27 which was a gift , used a few times for school but absolutely hate the look of it. do you think the monogram speedy 30 be a good first buy for an everyday bag? i know that everyone has one, including tons of annoying fakes i see, but i still want it very badly. does the ellow/hand carrying get tiring? would i regret buying it? how well does it age?

    and also, does anyone know how i can order it online or with phone and get it to me in canada?

    thank-you so much - the help would be wonderful.



    (sorry for my english)

    Hey,
    The Mono Speedy 30 was my first LV (and currently my only). I absoluetly love it! It's such a timeless, classic piece that will never go out of style. I would definitely recommend purchasing it as you will not regret it one bit! IMO, the 30 is a perfect size!
    And unfortunately, since the LV Speedy is a commonly replicated item, there are many nasty fakes out there . But to me it doesn't matter because I know mine is authentic and I concentrate on just enjoying my bag
    As for comfort, the handles fit nicely in the crook of my arm or around my wrist, etc. I avoid using my hands to carry it by the handles though. I do this to avoid getting them dirty and also to create and even patina. And so far, the leather is changing very nicely.
    If you want to purchase this through the internet or by phone, the only authorized online dealers of authentic Louis Vuitton items are louisvuitton.com and eluxury.com. Also, you could try ebay but just be careful from whom you purchase your LV from as there are many sellers who sell fakes. Though, I am not sure what their policies are on shipping to Canada.
    Well, good luck with what you decide on buying. But remember, you won't be disappointed with the Mono Speedy 30!!!!!

    ^^^ I totally agree.. and I couldn't have said it better myself!!!

    The Speedy 30 Monogram was my very first Louis Vuitton piece... I never regretted it at all!!! I loved it sooo much... I got it in the Multicolore line... and I'm going to get it in the Damier Canvas this year!!! You will love it and you will not regret it at all... Before ordered mine... I thought the same thing about fakes and how they were everywhere.... but after I got it I never regretted it, not once... and now that my Speedy is well patina-ed... I love her even more... I have pictures of my Speedy when she was a honey color and then when the handles are patinaed on my purse show page... It's Called... "My Baggies"... Check it out!!! Oh, and GoodLuck!!!

    the Speedy 30 was also my first bag! I love, love, love it and believe it should be everyones first LV. Mine has aged beautifully. The handles are a gorgeous color, and carrying the Speedy on the lower arm has never been a problem. I would highly recommend you purchasing the bag through an authorized LV dealer.

    I say go for it!....It is a timeless bag and would never go out of style!!...And as far as carrying it I personally like handheld bags better than shoulder bags....I just find it more comfortable...and the monogram speedy doesnt weigh much so it wont weigh down on your arm....but anyways hope you get it...Good Luck!

    Hey all , thank you so much for your responses! I think I will get within a month and I'm really excited.

    Personally, I don't think I would ever order from ebay. I would much prefer to get it from lv itself - I would order from eluxury but I couldn't find anything on their website saying they ship to Canada so I don't think they do. I guess I will have to call louis vuitton and order it on phone? Is that a possible?
    thanks again!

    I recommend going to LV for your first purchase, if it is possible. There is nothing else like it in the world! I have the Speedy 30 and I do love it. It is a classic bag that I believe will never go out of style but, I do not like to carry it when I go shopping. For that reason I am deciding against a Damier Speedy that I have been wanting for about 2 years. I am waiting for the Damier Neverfull to be released...
    HTH!

    Ah... I know what you mean... I might want the Damier Neverfull over the Damier Speedy too! I'm not positive though... I guess I'll just wait to see it I.R.L!

    The Speedy is so classic and stylish. I am wanting to get the 35 in Damier Azul for the summer.

    i love the monogram speedy! it's everyones first bag for a reason then the obsession kicks in. lol.

    its forever classic and been around for years -its not going anywhere- such a great piece.




    to ship to canada... did you call the 866.vuitton number or check out louisvuitton.com? there are many vuitton's spread throughout canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Banff, Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal).. im sure any of them will have the monogram speedy in stock.

    hi everyone again, sorry my late repsonses. been very busy with school and work and everything. well i'm ordered my first speedy soon :) probably sometime within the next month but i have questioning what size i want. since i'll be ordering on the phone and will not be able to try it on and decide which one is best for me, can anyone help me decide? I'm 5'8 and 100 pounds, and i would hate for my speedy to look too small or too big for me. if anyone has any pictures of them holding their speedy that would be wonderful! Any pictures of the 25, 30 or 35. Thank-you sooo much!
