I am entertaining getting a black multicolore alma or speedy and can't decide which one I like more. Which do you prefer? I wonder which would be more comfortable as well, and my guess is the speedy. I have read on here that some find the alma not as comfy when worn over the lower arm and is more of a handheld bag. I mostly wear my speedies on my lower arm as I'm holding things or kids, lol, in my hands. Thanks for your input! I discovered LV a little late(and didn't get mc out of my system yet) so I wonder even if mc is really so hot anymore. But I reason if they are coming out w/ new styles(auriella, ursula, etc.) then it's got to be hot still! But I'm curious to know if anyone thinks it's reached it's shelf life. I won't be getting this bag for so long from now, the red epi speedy 30 is next on the list for Sep.
