    Default Everyone at the Party had a Monogram Canvas Speedy 30

    Out of all the bags in my closet, I have to say my Monogram Canvas Speedy 30 is one of my favorites. I'm in love with this bag!! I can wear it with everything and it always looks great. I purchased this bag years ago when not everyone had it. Now, almost every woman I know has one. At least it feels that way. I hate to say this but...this is such a classic and timeless bag but because everyone has it I'm starting to feel like it's almost played out if you know what I mean. I understand that not everyone wears it the same way but still.

    A few months ago my girlfriend had a party at her condo in New Jersey. At least 10 of my girlfriends showed up with their Monogram Canvas Speedy 30. So of course we were not going to walk around the party with our bags on our arm all night. By the looks on our faces it seemed like we were all embarassed and couldn't wait to put the bag down because we all showed up with the same one. So we put them on the bed in the master bedroom. When it was time to go a few of the bags got mixed up - - the drinks didn't make it any better. That was no fun. We had to look inside a few of the bags to see what bag belonged to who. After that I never wore my Speedy to another party again. What a shame. I know there are charms you can put on your bag to make it different but that still won't change the fact that everyone is carrying the same bag.

    No matter what this is still my favorite bag I just know that there will always be someone right next to me carrying it too.

    I was actually going to sell this bag on eBay but I changed my mind because I'm in love with it.

    Does anyone else feel the same way? How do you handle this? What do you do? COMMENTS PLEASE!!!

    p.s. I have a bestfriend that carries her bag every single day. So I already know that when I am going to hook up with her I make sure I bring another bag

    LOL! Thanks for the tip. I certainly won't be carrying my mono speedy (when I get her) in new jersey! I'm originally from singapore and in asia, LV's are so common and there are so many fake ones everywhere. but around where I am, people are more into gucci, chloe, miu miu, fendi. so when you carry an LV, you would hardly see anyone else with one. maybe they all think it's too common as well. But I don't care.

    I'm the same... I don't really care... I love it. I was originally from Asia too but most of the girls here in Australia wear pradas or chanel... or Aussie brands like Oroton or Mimco... But since I've been so hooked with LV's I just keep noticing people who has them... but most people here like Damier... more than the mono.

    I'm originally from New York. I moved to Vegas recently. Vegas is a huge tourist city mainly because of the strip and all of its casinos. So Vegas gets people from all over the world. I noticed that many people carry the mono Speedy but like you said many of them are fake. Since this is still one of my favorite bags I will definitely continue to carry it. I think it may be time to invest in another everday bag though so I can switch it up even if it's the damier speedy .

    At first I wanted to get the monogram speedy 30 then opted to get the mini lin ebony speedy 30 bc not too many girls had it yet. But, now it seems to be that everyone has it where I live. It really doesn't bother me bc it can not prevented. Eventually, you will see a girl with the same bag. Yesterday when I went to the mall and a restaurant every girl had a Damier or Damier Azur speedy. I've never seen soooooo much Damier & Damier Azur Speedys in one day. IMO you should keep your Monogram Speedy bc it's a beautiful, timeless, classic bag.

    That's the problem with LV--they're everywhere. Both authentic and fake galore. Same with Coach, nowadays. You can't go anywhere without running into a bunch of them. I think that's part of the reason I could never get into LV, and, before the forum, I couldn't understand why so many people spent so much money to have the same bag as everyone else. And that's also why I like the Damier and WC Speedy more than the original one; there's fewer of them around. Yet I agree that if you love your Speedy, why get rid of it? It's your favorite bag and probably in need of some loving.

    Great replies! I love the damier speedy 30 but even if I get the damier, everyone and their mother will have that one too. So I guess I'm gonna think about that one. Do I really need another bag everyone and their mother has!!?

    Oh and I agree, why would someone wanna spend so much money on a bag that everyone else has. Even though this holds true I still love the mono speedy, I love the damier speedy and the neverfull GM. I've been wanting the damier and neverfull ever since they came out but never got them because I knew everyone would have them too. So I will just stick with my mono speedy. Even though I'm in love with LV I may need to see if there is another designer out there that I can afford and fall in love with. This is painful.

    i completely agree - i could never get into LV and it wasn't until i joined this forum (at the beginning of this month) that i understood why people spent so much money on such a "simple" bag... but now that i do understand, just try to love it for the reason you bought it, and not because everyone else has it. eventually, no matter how unique we think our products are, someone else will inevitably show up with the same thing...

    I've only recently come to appreciate LV's because it's timeless. That's why I suppose a whole spectrum of age group can carry them.

    The original LV design is actually the Damier. The mono was introduced later on. But obviously the mono is more well known

    I'm the same, I said to myself before, I wouldn't buy LVs as they're so impractical and expensive.... and now look at me... I got 4 LVs in 2 months.... LOL!!! I love it and its classic... even if there's so much of it around, fake or authentic... yesterday I went shopping and saw like 2 damier saleyas, and 2 hampsteads.... plus my BIL's gf who got an azur speedy too....

    I still love it even if its getting more common..... I guess a lot of people just appreciate its beauty....

    Yeah, around where I live - you don't see a ton of Louis Vuitton...but if you do, they are the monogram and most likely fake, lol! That is why I want a Damier speedy because I've never seen anyone carry it!

    The only bag I've seen others carry that I own is my mono speedy 30. I haven't ever seen 10 in one place at one time though. It doesn't bother me if someone else has the same bag as me. This bag in particular is a very classic bag and a lot of people who want one Vuitton piece opt for this bag.

    So I went to the Mall today in hunt of the new love of my life. I really planned on breaking up with LV. I went to the designer bag counters at Nordstrom, Saks and Neiman. I saw a beautiful Chloe bag and a must have Fendi bag. The Chloe was $1875 and the Fendi was $1500. I wasn't loving the prices. So I left the mall almost in tears. Then guess what I did??? I drove to the Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace...I planned on going to Gucci or Fendi or one of their boutiques. But I walked right into LV and I bought the damier hampstead mm. How can you walk away from something you're in love with!!?? :wub:

    I'm in love!! People do crazy things when they're in love

    Here's a few pics. I think the inside of this bag is gorgeous! I love the red interior!! The inside is so spacious.

    (As most of you know there are 2 snaps at the top of each side of the bag. In the pics I do not have the sides snaped.)

    I was gonna get a damier wallet to match but I decided to save the money and just rock the mono wallet I got about a year ago (see pics) ...at least for now.

    I was gonna get the hampstead GM originally but I decided to go with the MM because I wanted something that was more like a handbag, purse, tote all in one. This made the MM the perfect size for an everyday bag. The GM was too much of a big tote. I would only get the GM if I were using it mainly for work or travel.
