I haven't posted in a long time until today because to be honest, I thought that I fell out of love with LV bags! For a while I got on such a kick with those big leather bags with lots of hardware. However, my senses came back and now I am in love again!! I have always wanted the Mono speedy 25 but felt bad to buy it b/c I already have a Mono speedy 30 and a Damier Speedy 25. However I realize that the 30 is too big for my everyday needs and I think the 25 looks better on me because I am 5'2. I don't wear my 30 that much and I don't love it yet because the patina hasn't really set in and I love mono speedies with dark patina. I realized that I have been obsessing about this for a long time and finally decided to order the mono 25 as well! I am expecting it today from elux and keep on waiting by the window to watch out for the fedex truck! I plan to keep it by the sunny window for a while and then will start using it more. I can't wait until it develops into a dark patina!
