I finally figured out why this is a classic

  1. Snatched this Speedy up on eBay for a bargain $330 and had it authenticated this week at LV Manhasset (I already knew it was real though, from spending way too much time here LOL)

    Anyway, I can't BELIEVE that I never bought this bag from the get go and now that I have it, I'm not sure why I ever passed it up. It was always a bag that I lpassed over but the more I saw it on everyone (HERE!) the more it grew on me...I was thinking of the cerises, but this is a true LV classic and a welcome addition.

    It also took everything in me to walk out of LV empty handed but as you can see, Speedy isn't the only addition to my purse family-she's pictured here with the Grenat Paddy which just arrived TODAY :roflmfao:

    Adopted from PFer Carolyn (sunspark) and originally owned by PFer Fayden :amuse:

    There is some guilt involved with that purchase (way too many bags int he last 5 weeks and I blame it all on YOU!!) but I've been on the hunt for a red bag and this color was TOOOO perfect in terms of being EXACTLY what I wanted for this fall.

    Plus, I always wanted a Paddy :amuse:

    Must. Stop. Now.
     
  2. Wow, you speedy looks new to me. COngrat.
     
  3. It's about a year and a half old.
    Just the right amount of patina.
    Some wear to the handles, but obviously not a bag that was carried on a regular basis.
     
  4. i love your speedy of course (i am a speedy nut and that one is in wonderful condition for the price you paid!) but that paddy!! WOW! :blink: :love: not really a fan of paddies in general but the color on that one is beautiful. great purchases!! :smile:
