Went to LV today....VERY LONG POST!

  1. Two weeks ago, I made an impulse buy - Mono Riveting. I fell in love w/ the bag when I saw it IRL and happily took it home and removed myself from the Dentelle Speedy waitlist. After 2 wks. of vacillating, I decided to return the Mono Riveting. Although I loved the bag, I was too afraid of the vachetta and the Dentelle Speedy was still in the back of my mind, wondering if I had made a mistake.

    I walked into LV and there they had on display, the Dentelle Speedy in Silver and BH in Gold. I was on the list for the Gold Speedy as I thought the Gold embroidery will look best with the gold hardware. However, after seeing the BH in Gold, I quickly changed my mind.

    First of all, the gold hardware is NOT like the bright gold that is on the mono and damier hardware, it is more of an orange gold, similar to 14k and 24K in jewelry if one was to compare, KWIM? The gold embroidery is in the brighter gold, which IMO did not complement the hardware at all...

    The Dentelle Speedy in Silver, to my surprise was TDF! And I don't like silver at all. The treated vachetta was oh so beautiful, wish all the vachetta was like that. I can't explain, but the Silver embroidery was a beautiful contrast to the treated leather and orangy gold hardware.

    To my surprise, the Dentelle was beautiful but was not for me. Even the SAs did not care much for it. They received new shipment of the Riveting today and sold out in the black and mono. They could not believe I was returning my bag. When I took my bag out to admire her, all the women there flocked all around me:shame: .

    So, after finally seeing the Dentelle Speedy IRL, I was able to make a decision.... I KEPT MY MONO RIVETING... YES, I am one of those who had to go all the way back to the boutique to realize that I did not want to part with it!!!

    I finally took her out of the bag and transferred all my goodies in it!!!

    P.S. On display is also the Mini Lin in Dune - not my favorite, still looovve it in Ebene. They had the new epi bowler in Ivory - that looked better IRL -- VERY elegant....
