My first post in the LV portion of the forum. I had alway thought myself a Chloe girl, but since seeing the picture of the Alma for the 1 year contest, I'm smitten!! I live in the boonies so I have to buy online, and I really like the Alma in Myrtille that eluxury currently has. I'm a newbie to LV, so I have a couple of questions I'm hoping you experts can help me with.... I like a structured bag, but I read a couple of comments on the Forum that this bag is more for the 50+ crowd. Is that the standard thought on this? Also, the bag seems classy, and professional--is it too much to carry on a day to day basis? I don't own a blue bag, and was thinking the blue would be nice with jeans, but I usually wear a darker wash denim--is mixing the two a huge fashion faux-pas? This is only my second high end bag. Should I be looking for a more subdued neutral? Finally, I'm what is delicately called "hippy". I've always carried a short shoulder bag--something that avoids hitting my body where my beam is most broad. If I carried this bag in the crook of my arm, what's that going to do to the dimensions of the ample asset?? Thanks for all your help!
