Hi, thank you taking a moment to read my thread. I just noticed today upon looking at both my mono pieces that the yellow designs(LV, fleurs etc.) on my mono speedy are easily 2 shades lighter than the yellow designs on my batignolles vertical's canvas! I wish I had a picture of the two bags side by side and def. have to take one to demonstrate this. I bought both bags new from eluxury very recently and barely wore either. I have not worn the bv at all, I got it only a week ago. The speedy I wore maybe 3x for 20 min. a shot, basically the bag is as new as can be. My mono speedy came to me w/ the plastic on the handles but no paper around the hardware of the handles like my damier speedy did. Basically my question is...do you have color variation between your mono pieces? Is one mono bag/accessory a bit lighter in the yellow designs compared to another mono item you have? Wow, I'm kind of down about this trivial thing, bummer. I looked on elux, searching for a bag that has light designs and the mono speedy 40 looks like my bag color wise. Please check it out if you can to tell me what you think.
