I really wanted a Damier Speedy, it was the number one on my wishlist, because I adorte my Damier Papillon (I'm a Damier fan) and just loved the way Speedy looked in pics and on the shelf. Besides this seems to be a hard to get bag all over the world, but here in Moscow it's freely available in both LV shops, had to use the opportunity. So today me and my Damier Papillon went to the boutique to pick up its new sister (sounds tacky, I know LOL), but when I looked at the bag IRL (not on the shelf like last time, but closely) I was very disappointed. I knew it didn't hold shape, but it looks even worse, just very sloppy. I don't know why, but damier looks worse when not hoding shape than, for example, monogram canvas, probably because of its geometric pattern. Besides, I've heard all the "horror stories" about bleeding lining. So I decided not to buy it! To add to the disappointment I've seen several women with Damier Speedies today!!! Not a single Papillon, thank God, we haven't met a twin! I took a look at Damier Alma, it has a nice shape, but it has the same lining, besides, I've seen someone say Alma is not trendy and is a bag "for old ladies". I looked around and couldn't find anything that I'd want to make my next bag! Left the shop with empty hands. I just know I don't want vachetta. Maybe I should look more closely at the Epi line? Don't like the Epi Speedy though. What can you suggest? What bags are currently 'trendy' but not too overused like speedys? By the way, Moscow shop has the entire Mirroir line, all sizes of Damier Speedys. No Sophie though. No signs of Pomme d'Amour or the heart shaped thingy either.
