I'm back from Paris - the city was gorgeous (as usual) and I had an amazing time - while I was there, I checked out 3 of the 4 Gerard Darel shops - Truthfully just didn't love the bags enough to buy one - It had nothing to do with the fact that they were on every girl's arm. I just couldn't get excited enough - so the newly redone LV flagship store on the corner of the Champs and Avenue George V was a block from my hotel and I wanted to get something in that store - okay I never owned a Speedy and this blog had me thinking I should get one (please tell me why again) the 25 was way too small so I got the 30 in the regular classic logo. So now I am a brand new Speedy owner - I don't know what they cost here but they were very inexpensive there (410 euros). Is that a good price? The SA went in the back to wrap my bag for travelling and it seems the bag literally flattens out for storage or travelling - I didn't see the dust bag because I kept it wrapped till I got home - I am a bit disappointed in the dust cover. It's just a flap closure, no strings to tighten it securely (like my other LV) Has anyone seen that type of dustbag? - I saw a ton of bags of course, I guess everything there is - and it was a lovely experience. It occurs to me that I didn't see anything with cherries (cerise?) but I did see everything we discuss here and then some. I also saw the "book" It was huge and heavy beyond measure - so that was not a practical buy - they had gorgeous shoes in the window and clothes and scarves - oh if only money was no object!! Well, I'm back now and look forward to when I can get there again!: P.S. I do love the Speedy!!
