I was roaming eBay for another speedy when I came across this azur speedy (haven't had it authenticated yet). http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTH-LOUIS-VUITTON-DAMIER-AZUR-SPEEDY-25-MPRS_W0QQitemZ200162720633QQihZ010QQcategoryZ63852QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem I don't know if I like how the dark patina looks with Azur. I don't know if I'd ever buy Azur knowing that the leather can get this dark. It seems SO contrasting...almost distractingly so. What do you think? Do you like how it looks?
