Hey all, I know we've all had experiences with co-workers or others who don't understand our LV passion or think we're carrying fakes or wonder why we spend so much, blah blah blah. BUT here's a great one! I've been at my new job almost 90 days now (and proudly carry my LV and all my wonderful bags without any quandries...we're business casual so jeans and a nice sweater are just fine). Anyway, today I had my Cabas Piano and as I was coming back from lunch a co-worker shows up...with a gorgeous Vavin GM! She says "hey...great bag" and smiles and I'm all "yeah, LOVE yours too!" Hers, it turns out, is about 5 years old with amazing patina while mine is only 6 months old and is still pretty virginal looking...we had a great chat about that too. Just wanted to share a mutual admiration of LV with a co-worker - can't wait to see what else she has, and I may have a new shopping buddy here too .
