    Default What Kind Of LV Should I Get

    I definitely have my heart set on getting a LV but I am not sure what kind to get. I am a shortie about 5 feet 1 inch. I need some advice. I don't want one that is too big or too small. I am on a handbag ban until January but I have been saving like crazy. I am hoping by the late spring early summer to get it. TIA.

    Done...I think...Until I find something that catches my eye

    If it's your first LV, I would say speedy! The 30 is really roomy I can fit of loads in there. But if you want a shoulder bag. I do love my batignolles vertical, batignolles horizontal is easier to access things, but it's not THE LV bag if you know what I mean. Or the neverfull, although the SA told me that it gets shapeless after a while.

    How exciting!!

    I'm not crazy about the Speedy because of the tiny handles and short zippers. I'd go for a Montorgueil if my budget were on the low end. It's light, has longer handles, and opens wider. If I could go higher, I would get a Galliera--need I say more?. Even higher, Damier Duomo.

    Hmm... A Speedy 30 or a Neverfull MM. But it all depends on your budget and handbag/shoulder bag preference.

    I would say speedy 30 in mono or damier. Very classic and a great size! I do also like the neverfulls, especially in damier. I think for a first LV, a speedy is the perfect investment!

    I also agree you should take the speedy 30 into consideration :) But i've heard great stories about that neverfull around forums. I should google what it looks like right now haha

    tell us which one you're getting! Try going to the lv store and narrow down some selection and try them on to see which ones you like best and which looks best on you

    Do you want a shoulder bag or a handheld bag? How much is your budget?

    I agree with everyone else, the Speedy 30 and Neverfull MM are 2 great options.

    It depends if you prefer shoulder bag or hand held ones. I personally have a preference for shoulder bag, but just recently bought a Manhattan PM (was wanting something other than Speedy, although Speedy is definitely a classic). I'm only 5 ft and I love to be hands free for the most part. As for me, my Popincourt Haut if among my faves.

    Next question is if you want more security, like the zipper top bags. If so, NF is out of the question. I have this bag too, and I don't use it that much. Good luck and update us on it.

    No, my name isn't because of the restaurant. It is just one of my favorite words. I love the way it sounds.
