I finally did it -- bought an LV Ellipse

  1. Yippee!!!! I'm looking at it as I write this. The Ellipse is the bag I originally wanted. I toyed with the idea of getting a bag with a shoulder strap because I do like them, but after trying on pretty much everything in the store in my price range, both the SA and I agreed that the Ellipse was "me."

    I bought the medium as I tend to carry a fair bit of stuff, and it doesn't look too big on me, whereas the pm looked too small. I spent more than I would have if I'd bought used -- and I was very tempted to do that, thanks to a poster here who had a great bag -- but I decided to celebrate my birthday (this Sunday), Christmas and finishing my Masters' degree all in fell swoop by buying my first major purchase at the store.

    I couldn't be happier. It is so elegant and classic and beautiful. OK, I'll stop now, but it is quite a rush to buy your first bag. :wlae::yes:
  2. Many congrats on your first designer bag! :biggrin:
  3. Now all I need is a Chanel black evening bag...maybe hubby can get that for me some time soon, lol.
  4. Congrats! The Ellipse is a classic. You'll get some much use out of it.
  5. Congrats.
