I would like to buy my mom a louis vuitton for christmas. She has a couple of coach bags, but one of her clients had a LV bag that she fell in love with - before this she didn't like LV at all. I showed her a picture of the BV and she said that it was what her client had that she loved. I'd like to buy her one because I know she'd never spend that much money on herself. I just don't know if it's the regular one or the vertical that she saw - I showed her picturs of both, but she has no idea which it was. Can someone give me their opinions? Her bags aren't that big and my mom is pretty petite so I think the regular sized one could fit on her shoulder if she wanted (i think...). Is the BV that much bigger than the regular B? Also, do you all think that these bags will sell out right before christmas? I'd like to buy it as close to christmas as possible so it'll give her as much of the full 14 days to exchange/return if she decides to. I'm trying to find things to sell off so I will be able to pay the entire thing off instead of carrying it on my credit card.
