Yes, I know what I said not too long ago about being over the bags, over the monogram canvas, blah, blah, blah...I am officially full of sh@t. I wore my Alma in monogram canvas today and accidentally caught my reflection on the car as I was about to get my daughter out of her seat. Even in my thick, winter down coat, the Alma made me look 10 times better. I instantly felt better, even in the freezing weather. I was pissed off about something earlier, but after seeing that reflection of myself, I suddenly forgot what it was. As I was waiting in the line at the post office, I saw an older woman glance at my bag, glance at me, nod her head in what seemed to be approval and smile. I cannot confirm exactly what she was thinking, but I did not get the impression that she was questioning the authenticity or negatively judging me...It was more of a sisterhood gesture: either she had one (or more) at home, or she wanted one (or more)...Not that I need the approval of others, but it certainly feels good when people seem to show "LV love." I knew I was having the "Seven Week LV Itch" (I had not carried my LV for seven weeks) when 1.) I had actually counted the weeks, 2.) I caught myself looking for bags by other brands that were "Speedy-like" or "Noe-like" or "Alma-like" and 3.) I was up until 11:30 PM looking at LV styles on eluxury.com last night. And now I want more...AGAIN. That is all.
