Hi everyone, I just had the best Christmas ever by purchasing my first LV bag. I am so excited to join your exclusive LV club. After reading the forums and learning/researching all the bags, I fell in love with the the LE Mirage Speedy in Bordeaux. Unfortunately, I discovered that it was sold out EVERYWHERE!!! There were only two left last week in NY-Soho and St. Thomas. Soho told me that it was being held for another customer. I called St. Thomas and they had one left and it was my favorite color - bordeaux! I love the patent merlot colored handles and bordeaux microsuede interior - makes me want to drink wine. I gave them my CC card and two days later I received my FIRST LV PURCHASE!!!! The LV reps were wonderful and they invited me to come to St. Thomas for a vacation to show off my bag and to celebrate my first LV purchase with a glass of champagne. Nice touch! I will try to attach a few pictures.
