Alright, so I got my new Damier Speedy 25 a few weeks ago, and I've been carrying it religiously ever since. It's my first Speedy, and I'm just enamored with it But I want a monogram one SOOOOOOO bad. It's all I think about! I scour eBay daily and ELUX's Mono Speedy 25 page is in my top ten website hits every day! This is bad! I just LOVE the look of the monogram and the only monogram bag I have is my pochette. As I've been carrying the damier and reading about you ladies who get the envious stares and such when you carry your monogram, I realize, no matter how shallow it sounds, that I want my bag to scream "LV!!!" I also know that if I got the monogram Speedy I'd probably never carry the damier-- at least, not nearly as much-- no matter HOW gorgeous it is (Rensky, o Damier Princess, don't hate me!!) And there's no way I'll be able to afford the monogram speedy any time soon but I CANNOT get it out of my head-- darn you, LV! So what do I do? Sell a couple of my Coach bags on eBay (I only have a few and I love all of them) and buy the Speedy? My handbag collection is down to 7 or now, and I'd have to sell probably 2 of my Coach bags to get the rest of the money to afford the monogram. But I love my Coach bags.... one I know I'd have to sell is my black Legacy Shoulder bag from '06 and it's the only roomy black bag I have. Or, do I sell the damier? I really don't know if that's a good idea. I'm afraid I'd miss it, and that I should have both.... though I know once the mono came in the damier would be very neglected... Or do I just wait the (at least) 6 months it'll take me to save up enough money to buy the monogram Speedy 25? Since I don't work at Coach anymore I really don't have any frivolous money to spend on a $600 handbag, kwim? My credit card's limit is less than the Speedy, also, so that's not an option. I've got about $150 saved, so.... yeah. Hopefully you guys all understand that I make mid-30's salary so lots of expensive bags are just... well, a dream for me What do you think, ladies (and guys)? Any suggestions I haven't covered? Am I just stupid/shallow for being so addicted to LV that I CANNOT get this out of my head? Have any of you ever dealt with this? I'm re-reading this thread and I swear I sound like a meth addict or something! (needfixmusthaveLVneedgottagetfixneedLV ) TIA!
