I have a problem, and I need a conseil: what do you think about the idea of hand-making changes in yor LV bag? (Obviously, with the 100% security of not damaging the bag). Have you never feel the sensation that with a little change your bag cuold become the perfect bag? I have an open bag, I want to use it everyday to go to work, but here in Italy there are a lot of thieves on busses... so I thought to put a zip to my bag. My friend said: Nooo! Then your bag would pass for a fake!!! I know isn't a fake...but I have to agree with her; it's strange, because if I buy a designer's dress, I can fit it on me, make some changes... but with a bag it's different... I'm sure I will use it more... but something impede me to make it. I woul know your opinion... Stephanie.
