    Default Help Me, LOL!!!

    I know I've said that I'm saving for the Manhattan GM, but the WC Brown Speedy has really made me rethink my first bag. The price isn't bad at all, of course the availability is the main issue. Who knows if I could even get one. I'm usually against hand/arm bags, but this one doesn't count, after I saw the Papillon I was in love (just not with that shape, the speedy) I'm 5'1, a 30 is no problem on me, so I figure a 35 would be fine, plus I could double it as an overnight bag easily. But I've never tried on a 35, and there isn't an LV close by. (If anyone owns a 35 any modeling photos would be great)

    But on the other hand the Manhattan has always been a favorite since it came out...the money I'd put towards the WC has me half way there. I keep saying I'm only buying 1 bag and then I'm good, but if I got the WC I would still really want the Manhattan. With it being high already I'm scared of more and more increases before I could get it, and I hope it would still be around by then.

    I just can't figure out what to do I'm so torn, I don't want to be back at square one in regards to the Manhattan, but the WC is so pretty and different

    If you want a cool and LE LV, then go for the WC Speedy.... but if I had the chance to splurge... I would totally go for the Manhattan... I love the Manhattan, it's stunning!!!

    i'm with you, that's what i said too... 1 LV and I'm happy....Not. I ended up getting 4 LV's in one month. lol!!!

    anyway i think you should go for the WC speedy, check the availability first,if you can get one then that means its for you... but if there's none to grab go for the Manhattan...HTH!

    It's hard decision! I love the WC Brown. I think it's fun while the Manhattan is a more sophisticated bag. How and when would you carry either of these bags? Which would suit your lifestyle more?

    Personally, I would pick the Manhattan as I can see myself carrying it for all different occasions - from work to social.

    i would at least try & get your name on the waiting list just in case you do decide you want one & then if time goes by & you can't get one, get the manhattan. call a few different stores & put your name on different lists. shipping is very reasonable & when i've ordered via the phone i wasn't charged any tax! i am about the same height as you & i have a 30 mono & the 35 WC. to me, it really isn't that big. here is the link to my thread showing off my WC speedy & there is a modeling pic in there: My LV Brown Watercolor Speedy!!! HTH!!

    I say wait and get the Manhattan. It's the bag you have wanted for quite some time. I have done that too many times in the past, and it never works. You still want the other bag! LOL!
    The Manhattan is TDF!
    Good luck!

    I love the Manhattan it can be a great everyday bag. While the WC is more fun, not so much everyday, but I just love it so much! I guess the Manhattan would suit me more, the monogram canvas is classic and can go with so much, where you could be limited to carry the WC and it just screams Summer and fun to me , but who knows how I'll feel in cold winter.

    I'm still so confused, tomorrow I'll ask my mom and bf, but I already know the answer I'm sure, mom will say Manhattan, she loved it once she saw it IRL, and the bf will say WC (I'm pretty sure, especially if he asks about cost) He thought that it was cool, and he liked it more than any other bags the whopping 3 maybe 4 minutes he spent in the store, and he didn't see the Manhattan in person. I'll have to find a random tie breaker I'm sure, lol.

    IMO, you can pull off the WC speedy in brown all year, the white is more summery. oh, they are for sale on vuitton.com now maybe you should get one!

    Oh believe me if the site was cooperating with my computer right now I think I would have a while ago once I read that you posted that in Jennifer's poll.

    If I can talk the BF into getting me a LV gift certificate for our 5th anniversary in a few weeks I may get the Speedy with the cash I have now and keep the gift certificate as a start to the Manhattan. He would get that because today he asked for a watch (the last thing he needs I've bought him 4 or 5 I guess he's over the burberry fetish now:rolleyes:) But once he asked I quipped back saying as long as I get an LV gift certificate he would get it and he enthusiastically agreed, lol.

    Me too! I hope you get both! If not, I'd probably go with the Manhattan - it is a classic and will last a (very happy!) lifetime - so cool!

    I asked everyone today, My mom said no questions Manhattan because I've wanted it for so long and since I have to be organized the speedy would be bad "since it no compartments and you could never find anything, and for the money it should be really structured and sturdy" (she saw some sagging speedys and hated them, lol) My boyfriend was no help - just like me I showed him and he goes "Wow thats hard I don't know they're so different, but both really cool" I told him to pick one and he couldn't after I asked him 4 times, then he said go with the cheaper one, haha, but he still couldn't pick. And my moms boyfriend liked the WC.

    My mom kept telling me to get the Manhattan, made me show her pictures of both 823928 times. So I guess I'm still saving for the Manhattan, if I can afford the WC (and if its still out) I'm DEFINITELY buying one (I think I kind of want it more, especially since I could have it now; but the 35 seems so big, if it was a 30 the Manhattan would be on hold 100%!)

    Ok I'm seriously going to go insane, my mom just called me at work asking how much "the purse" was, more so how much more I need. She told me she'd give me money for the WC, of course now they aren't online again, I'm so confused, this coming from the woman telling me to forget the WC and go for manhattan. Now I'm really lost again But then she said that the close too $1000 I need for the manhattan was too much, shed rather pay towards the car. I didn't even ask her for money, I haven't for a year for anything. But I think she wants to because I bought her diamond earrings on vacation, I feel bad, I don't want to take any money from her because up until last year she bought all the bags I own.
