2006: What kind of year was it?

  1. Of course I'm talkin' about LV. What did you buy this year? What do you have left to get before the year comes to an end? Any regrets (with something you bought or something you wanted to buy but just didn't)?

    This was a great year for me! I discovered LV early in the year and fell in love with a MC speedy. Hubby got sick of me talking about it and took me to Chicago in late April. I passed on the MC speedy because I thought it was too big :push: and bought the Lodge Pm in black MC. Thus the obsession began. I discovered tPF a couple of weeks later through someone on eBay. I briefly flirted with Balenciaga but hubby hated it and I wasn't overly thrilled when I saw them IRL...and found myself back with LV. I finally got the black MC speedy just a couple weeks ago (I was kicking myself for not buying it originally after I bought a mono speedy 30 and realized I liked big bags).

    What I bought:
    black MC lodge PM
    black MC speedy
    damier speedy 30
    mono speedy 30
    mono compact zip wallet
    cerises pochette
    cerises speedy
    cerises cles
    mini lin cles
    panda pochette
    panda cles
    all 3 colors of graffiti pochettes
    all 3 colors of cherry blossom pochettes
    groom (went overboard....cles, ronde, 3 agendas, 2 keychains, and compact zip wallet)

    **I think that's all of them...and I thoroughly blame tPF for the long list LOL**
    before the end of the year I want an Epi speedy 25 in red and a groom bandeau.

    Regrets? That I haven't finished my wish list! I want to really finish my LE list (CB papillon & cles, and graffiti speedy) but they'll probably wait until next year!

    Overall 2006 has been a great year in terms of LV! The beginning of my :heart: affair with a wonderful handbag! And :drinkup: to many more years!

    (I know this is a little early since 2007 is just under 2 months away...but what the heck!!!)
  2. Here's the lv I got in 2006:

    poppincourt haut
    large bucket
    white mc alma
    mono pti
    mono wapity
    damier koala agenda
    damier speedy 30
    mono speedy 30
    azur speedy 30
    saleya mm

    So, in other words, my entire lv collection was obtained this year, and I totally blame tpf! Just kidding, I'm happy with everything I bought. No regrets! Only regret that I don't have any epi yet. Cheers to many more years with LV!!:drinkup:
  3. I only found my love for LV end of last September. Bought a Damier Speedy 25, Moka Onatah PM, Groom cles (??? key & coin purse?) and an Azur small agenda. No regrets yet but Sac Plat, Azur Speedy 25, Epi Soufflot and a pencil is on my list.... well, there are more.... But I'm getting married next month so I don't have time to buy... What I mean is I have to tell my honey how much they cost and he's going to freak out!
  4. 2006 was a great year for me!

    nah, your list made me feel better! :biggrin:
  14. i didnt buy alot of louis vuittons this year (saving up for my birkins) but i saw a picture of the mc white speedy and a koala wallet and the love i had for it came back to me so i went and got them in bloomindales nyc its right around the corner from my apartment so as you can see how i can be tempted im wondering if it was a waste because it seems to be going out of style? what does everyone else think, was it worth it? i mean i like it.. but again its so over played i thinkt he word is?
  15. I am so happy that I found this forum. It's like home away from home. Well, I just discovered the forum about 4 months ago and have since purchased 4 bags. My collection includes:
    Mono Petite Bucket
    Damier Speedy 30
    Blue Petite Noe
    Mono Speedy 30 (on its way to me)

    I don't plan to make any more purchases in 2006. I think I will limit myself to maybe 2 bags per year starting in 2007. On my wishlist for next year is an Epi Soufflot and maybe a cles. But my wishlist constantly changes.:yes:
