Well, I had originally planned on getting my first LV when I had achieved my Lifetime membership at Weight Watchers, but my Mother suprised me yesterday by saying that she we were going to the mall to visit the LV store to get our bags. Needless to say I was shocked and suprised and THRILLED! How appropriate that we made our first purchase on Louis Vuitton's birthday! So now I can proudly say that I am a card carrying member of the Speedy Gonzalez club with my brand new Mono Speedy 30. My Mom chose the Damier Papillion 30 (she's not big on the Vachetta leather). And now I think I need a Damier piece! Opening those boxes when we got home was soooo fun! I have pics, and will upload them soon! Thanks for listening to me ramble about my excitement...I only have one other friend who "gets" it.
