I was thinking about getting a Damier speedy for everday use. I travel a lot and as the Damier is ok for incliment weather I figured it would be perfect. I saw the Griet the other day and fell in love but its a huge price difference between the two bags. Now I went n a bit of a shopping splurge recently (thus the ban) and spent 1400.00 on 3 coach bags. They were cute but not the same as LV and VERY heavy. I have a bad back. Anyway I ended up not using and returning them all. I then thought wait a min...I was already spending 1400.00 on 3 bags why not put that towards the Griet...right. If I am going to spend the money I might as well get what I like...right?
