My First LV! Red Epi Jasmin!

  1. Hi everyone, I wanted to share my first LV purchase! Red is my favorite color. :love:

    I'd only seen the red/silver jasmin before and I really liked it. But today the LV store happened to have the red/gold -- when I saw it, I was in love!

    I have a question about the metal buckles that connect to the handles -- on my red/gold one, 2 of the metal buckles are rectangles and 2 extend to a longer, rounded top (see the closeup I attached). The SA said this was for attaching a strap to the bag.

    The store also had a red/silver jasmin and all 4 metal buckles were rectangles. Is this an older style? I didn't ask the SA but I peeked at the date code and it looked like it was Feb 05. I kind of like the uniform look. Does anyone know why it's different?

  2. Congratulations for your first (and beautiful) purchase! I love the jasmin! Silver is actually the new hardware that comes with the red epi jasmin. Anyway, enjoy your bag!

  5. The red epi is one of the other materials I am lusting after--that bag is gorgeous! I have my eye on a red Soufflot that I saw on eBay, but am unsure if I want to pay that much for an eBay bag.
     
  6. You made a Great choice with the red Jasmin. When they changed all the hardware to palladium, the metal styling changed to uniform rectangles with rounded corners (for all epi's). I have the silver/red Jasmin and it's funny because i was actually disppointed they made it all uniform.
     
  7. Your red Jasmin is gorgeous! Congrats!

    I have the Mandarin and mine also has those longer extended rectangles. Could just be a recent change but I'm not sure.
