Hi, does anyone own a LV Speedy 35? Is this bag too big to carry on a daily basis or is more like a duffle bag? I've never seen it in person, only online. Trying to decide whether to get the 30 or 35. Thanks. :)
That's the probelm for me privatejoy - I don't have any retails close by. I love big bags, so I would probably like the Speedy 35. I just didn't want to look like I'm carrying around my luggage all day. LOL..
I had my mind set on the Speedy 30 for ever until I walked into the LV store to drool and saw the 35. I really like big bags, and to me, I dont think the 35 is too big. So it's pretty much preference! :-)
I just got my Speedy 35 a couple of weeks ago and I actually went through the exact same dilema as you, trying to decide between the 30 & 35! I decided on the 35 because I love bigger bags and I thought that besides being able to use the 35 as an everyday bag, it would also make a perfect travel hand-carry or overnight bag too!
It really isn't too big at all. I even tried on the 40 while I was at it and admit that the 40 was definetly too big as an everyday bag. With the 40, you would look like you're using your hand-carry. But I think the 35 is a great choice...I'm really happy I got it!
Here are the pics I took of myself carrying it and hope it helps you out a bit. I am 5'4, 106 pounds (size 2), for your reference:
That bag is fantastic, Dragon Girl. It looks gorgeous, especially next to you. I weigh about 140 lbs, so it may not look as flattering next to me! :)
I am definitely going with the 35. I was surprised to find out there's only about a $25 price difference. Definitely worth the extra space! You all have been so nice to me! I really appreciate it. This would be my first LV purchase!
