Hello Ladies and Gents: Well, I got my first LV bag today:the Mono Speedy 25. First, I would like to add that I practically wore a trench into the hallway; pacing back and forth from my room to the front window. I was up at 8am (very early for this former college grad), thinking that the FedEx truck would be here since the tracking page said that my Louis was on the truck at 6am. Silly me, FedEx did not arrive until NOON! Yuck! Second, I paced so much not only due to excitement, but also because I wanted to get to the door before my parents did. People, I just do not know how to break it to my mother that I spent this much on a handbag...she was already wondering at my curious behavior; walking back and forth through the house. Third, the bag is great but I was a little uncertain of its lightweighted-ness. I was sort of expecting something with a little more poundage for all the moolah I spent...but now I figure that it's a good thing for it to be like that since, when all my crud is in it, it won't be heavy. Fourth, (and I promise I won't count very high) I took the speedy out today to run some errands, and I brought it to where I work to go shopping. Not a speedy owner for a full day, and I already had an "Is it real?" incident. My manager Kevin was looking at it and wanted to know what the "V L" stood for. When I told him it was "L-V" as in, Louis Vuitton, he said that it looks like the Vs are printed first to be read first and that's not how Louis does things. HAHA! I told him it better be how it's done cuz it's the real thing. Anyway, most of you know what the Speedy 25 looks like so as soon as I can get some modeling shots (with me posing) I'll post them. This isn't a teaser, I just need to borrow my dad's camera.
