    Default Manhattan GM

    As I've said many times before I REALLY want a LV bag, but have been wayyyyyyyy indecisive, I've always avoided "impulse buys" for my want of the week. I've been trying to pinpoint the 'perfect fit' and this one's always been at the back of my mind, and I think it would be a great investment. It would definitely uphold the test of time. I just saw one IRL Saturday, and it was beautiful, it had a good patina, which is when I think they look amazing. I asked how it was and the girl said its perfect, and not bad as a shoulder bag at all, that kind of sealed the deal, haha.

    I've been researching reviews and such, and I know there are mixed opinions on the bag, basically the Venetia with LV slapped on it, but I think it is gorgeous. I've read that its heavy, but I'm used to my Marc Jacobs bags which are "heavy" when empty and I've never had problems with the weight. I also hear the strap is a pain, but I can deal since my bag now is that way.

    The price tag is a bit hefty, but it will probably be my last (expensive bag for a while) Also, every bag I fall in love with gets discontinued (Audra and Griet ) So I feel like I need to grab one while I still can. I wanted to purchase my LV on my cruise, next week, but thanks to my MJ purchase a few weeks back, I'm short the money so I would have to hold off a bit, and get it at home. Hopefully I can talk my BF into just getting me a LV gift certificate for our 5 year anniversary to put towards it (but he thinks gift cards are a stupid cop out, and hates if I tell him what I want, but at least then I'm happy, and I don't need jewelry or stuff like that, so I drop hints, Lol!)

    Ok so that's my long-winded thoughts, haha, what do you girls, and few guys think of this bag?

    I love it! But then again I also love the Venetia!:wub:

    I agree with you about gift cards...I think they are one of the greatest gifts. I would much rather open one of those than anything else, unless it is cash or course. LOL!
    Let your BF know that you honestly love GC's and that a Louis Vuitton GC is the BEST gift ever!!

    Did you try the GM on? Did you think it was too heavy? Also, does it fit well on the shoulder?

    I didn't try it on I felt kind of weird asking if I could play with her bag, considering I was almost harrassing her about it, my mom was cracking up, haha, but she had it on her shoulder coming into the party and she was a bit taller than me, so I'm thinking I'd have even more room on my shoulder its about an 8 inch strap drop.

    I may still go to a LV shop in Puerto Rico or St Thomas to see if its really heavy. I don't usually carry a ton, but lately I'm into larger bags.

    Definitely try it on first and make sure the size and weight is good for you. I think it's great that you put so much thought into your purchases before you make them; then you can be truly sure you chose the perfect bag for you!

    I think the Manhattan GM is definitely a stunning bag, and if the strap over the front doesn't bother you, you should definitely go for it!
    Now on a BAN!

    Gorgeous! Thanks for posting a pic I started the thread on my phone and was having a hard time uploading a pic with my first post.

    Any reviews on your take of the bag since you own it? Also does it fit comfortably on the shoulder? I normally only carry shoulder bags, but this one I could deal with as a hand/arm bag too because I love it so much (I hold exceptions for amazing bags, lol) but I'm hoping I can deal with it as a shoulder bag. Any info would be great, you're so lucky to have one, I'm sure ill be waiting months for mine I just want it NOW, haha!

    I have this bag and I love, love, love it! I'm carrying it today, as a matter of fact! I can wear it on my arm, my shoulder, handheld... you name it! I got mine a few years and multiple price increases ago. I don't fear it being retired, but I do fear the price increases! Invest in at as soon as you can... you will love this bag!

    Good to hear great reviews!!!! It's sad I just got a bag I absolutely LOVE, that I did some major sleuthing around to find, and the Manhattan is all I can think of (even though I love my MJ a lot, the colors don't exactly deem it an 'everyday' bag even though I've been trying to pretend it is) I'm trying to think of ways I could afford/get this on vacation, but I know thats not going to happen, no matter how much is wish. Like you said cincinnati, I hope I get to it before its more outrageously priced.
