I've been dithering about getting a black epi speedy (if I bite the bullet it will be my first LV ever). Going to the boutique to try one on is not on the horizon so I need opinions please.

I'm quite conservative hence the black speedy (I LOVE the red speedy but I know I won't use it). I'm 5 foot 2 inches and I won't reveal my weight. I'll just say I still haven't lost all my pregnancy pounds (had baby six months ago)!

So I would like to know do they both look like doctor's bags or is it just the 30?

Thank you!

I suppose they do a little (my father was a surgeon), but I have two and absolutely love them, including the sag. Doctors stopped carrying those kinds of bags about 25 years ago, so I wouldn't worry too much. The black speedy is a pretty bag. You can add pretty scarves if you want to soften it up a bit, or add a charm.

I'm surprised some of you "youngsters" remember doctors' bags! (LOL!)

I remember when I was young, I was having a slumber party and my father got called out for surgery in the middle of the night. We had been watching scary movies and telling ghost stories in the middle of the night and were sleeping in sleeping bags in the middle of the living room floor. My dad scrubbed up in the powder room and there was no towel so he had his hands in the air and was stepping over us in the dark. When of the girls started screaming - then all - it was hysterical!

Anyway - get the black speedy - tie a beautiful hermes or other scarf on it and enjoy it. If it resembles a doctor's bag - that's okay - remember - doctor's bags were typically made out of gorgeous leather that lasted forever and were passed down - just like LVs!

The first time I told my BF that I wanted to buy the epi speedy, he kinda hesitated and whispered into my ears (we were in the boutique btw) and he said "it kinda looked like a doctor bag to me". Whatever, I liked it so I bought one for myself.

Now I always refer it as the doctor bag in front of him... I am not ready to teach him all the LV names to confuse him yet, poor chap.

I don't even know how a doctor bag looks like!! I just find the shape of speedy matches 90% of my outfits, and that's all I care about.

^^LOL! too funny! ya know, it kinda does...

btw, m in med school and my med bag is a bally one that's a bit like the speedy but with a widening framed mouth so its easy to open. doctor's will have a hard time with the speedy IMO. ;)

DH also mentioned to me that he didn't like the black 30 cause it looked too much like a doctor's bag. He likes the 25 for me better :yes:
Come to think of it, my dad has a bag where he keeps his stethoscope that looks like the speedy!:roflmfao:
