I just bought an LV Alma in damier, and am realizing that I am not a fan of the easily recognizable damier.
So I am considering exchanging the damier Alma for a
(1) Epi leather Alma or
(2) Epi Leather Madeleine GM.
The thing is, the LV Alma (Epi) is $1310 and the Madeleine is $1100.
I originally paid $1030 for the damier Alma, and wouldnt mind paying $70 extra for the Madeleine. But $280 extra for an Alma in Epi (!?). I could buy another Coach bag with that $$!!
So what do you guys think? Should I pay $280 extra for an Epi Alma or pay $70 extra for the Epi Madeleine?
Which is the better/more versatile handbag, in your opinion?
I'd go for the Alma. I think it sounds like you need to try them both on and see which one feels right. The Madeline would hold more, and if you need it for an everyday type bag perhaps that would work better for you. Good luck with your decision!
I think Madeleine is a better choice for everyday, but it's not very striking IMO. The Epi Alma is stunning and if you think you can get a lot of use from it, then I think the extra money would be worth it! Good luck!
