I need a therapist to sort this one out. My Speedy 25 is the second LV piece I ever bought, and it developed a dark patina on the handles pretty quickly. I don't think I've carried it in 12 years, and here I am thinking of getting the handles replaced. For what? To sit in my closet? Given my current taste in handbags, it seems like a bottomless pit in comparison, and there's only the one pocket so I'd need to start carrying a small makeup case--hey, I could use the Wapity for that! I've been looking for an excuse to get one so that could be it. So the Wapity is X amount, the handles are Y...and maybe I should go off and buy an Hermes scarf instead. I couldn't just have an Hermes OR an LV addition, no, I had to get both.
