Not too long ago, I posted on another message board that I've never owned LV and several women took pity on me. Someone said, "It's a woman's right of passage!!!" I've been noticing so many LV fans here and everywhere, so I'm naturally curious. Please tell me what you love about LV handbags; I'm seriously considering adding one to the collection. I'm not crazy about the monogram, but I'm drawn to the epi leather. Is it soft? Please tell me everything that you love about LV. What am I missing out on?
