Hi girls, I've been posting in the other threads about my dislike for the monogram speedy (no offense to anyone ), but I must come clean...the main reason I did not buy that bag was because it was not made in France. All the bags at the boutique were made in the u.s.a. Dont get me wrong, Im all about the red, white, and blue , but isnt l.v so expensive because its made in france? does this bother anyone else or is it just me??? I've also heard that the L.V's that are made in spain and the U.S are considered "second grade"...is this true???
