    Default LV virgin question

    If someone was new to LV and wanted to purchase an inexpensive, classic bag, which one would you suggest?

    Inexpensive and LV do not belong in the same sentence LOL, with all the price increases its going to be hard to get a nice bag under 600.

    Try let-trade, they sell authentic LV and you can get a monogram speedy for like 400 (if its really patina'd itll be like 300). But yea, I think if you want something classic it MUST be a speedy....probably monogram.

    I was thinking the Speedy 25. I like that one. Knowing my mom she'll go for the lighter colored one. I personally like the darker colors and the basic Monogram.

    ^^^ A monogram or damier Speedy 25 would be my choice... and the price increases are killer! They keep on going up! I remember purchasing my first LV (speedy 30 monogram) for $595... now they retail for $685!!!!

    A few People told me that their bags smell like moth balls. I don't know what that's about but they are honest People and have a website too, Authentic Designer Bag Reseller ~ let-trade.com ~. It's very hard to buy a cute cheap LV bag.

    I have also heard good things about let-trade and used bags. If you're worried about the smell, you could email them and ask about the particular bag you're interested in.

    As for cheaper bags @ retail, I would also recommend the speedy or the neverfull. Both very useful bags that are on the lower-end price-wise of the LV spectrum.

    ^ That was going to be my suggestion as well. I really like the speedy (definitely a classic) and the neverfull is a nice bag for the price.

    WOW! I just checked eLuxury at the Speedy 25 is now $660?! Weren't they like $550 before?

    Looks like the Neverfull PM is the cheapest big bag they have now. It's not that big, however if you're looking for LV and not to spend too too much, then that would be good.

    I say the Speedy 30 or Neverfull MM. I carry my Neverfull more than the Speedy but I do feel that the Speedy 30 is a classic! Both are great bags for the price.

    I would not get the Speedy 25 or Neverfull PM as they are both kind of small. HTH!

    I would disagree about the size of the speedy 25. If you don't need to carry a lot then it's the perfect size (although zombiegirl knows i can't even fill mine up!), but if you need to carry more things (or tend to fill your purse up) then the 30 is great!

    I agree with the other suggestions here, the Speedy is an absolute classic but if you'd rather a shoulderbag then the Neverfull is the go. Both are versatile bags that will serve you well!

    i love my speedy 25s, they are the perfect size for me when i carry more than i normally do. i dont ever carry more than could fit in a pochette so i really love the 25s

    Everyone has the mono speedy, that's why I don't really like it. =( No offense to anyone who has it. You should get the batignolles horizontal. Very pretty, classic, and a big plus is that it's a shoulder bag (unlike the speedy).
