I recently bought a pre-loved brown Epi Petit Noe on eBay. It was authenticated by MyPoupette, but I took it in to the LV store today to get their official opinion. I carried my Lockit Vertical (so they would know I bought new, authentic LV, not just stuff on eBay), on which I have a really cute brown/tan/red/cream color plaid scarf tied, and as two SA's walked by me when I came in, they both stopped and said, "that is really cute!" and "that looks great!" I felt so cool! I know that's goofy, but I felt cool that the SA's thought my scarf looked so good on my Lockit. They also confirmed that my Noe was authentic, and were really nice to talk with. And as usual, I had a great time looking around the store. Just had to share what a geek I am that I felt really cool because of the SA's compliments! Gotta love LV!
