Hy everyone
I just saw something I just had to share
I was cleaning the house and I stumbled across my receipt from around 2 ago (sep)
Of my epi indigo alma and I thought to myself that im so happy I got it because
It must have gone up quite a bit by now (100-200$) than I checked my lv app and was shocked. This bag is now more than 600$ more than what I paid for it back than
Isn’t that insane, for that amount I could also get a speedy back then, wow
And i remembered the time I was conflicted with perhaps getting the gm and I said to myself it wont be that much more in the future I can always get it in the future
And now im like no way nearly 3000.
Having said that the bag still looks AMAZING, no scratch, no dirt
Polished silver and that is with good use with the handles and the strap I got
The color is stunning and I guess there a reason this color is still in demand
I still carry the pic on my phone when I was conflicted between this one and the orange on
Glad I went with the indigo. Works with so many things
Anyway I guess it's a rant and a review on the same thread J

You know, it still looks gorgeous. I agree, LV prices as well as designer purse prices in General have really gotten out of hand.

The price increases are crazy. My Epi Brea is 4 yrs old. The price then was $1430. The current price is $2500. I wish my IRA increased at the same rate!

It is a stunning bag :smile: I've been wanting an alma pm forever and just couldn't quite bring myself to shell out the £1200 plus strap for £170 as I know I wouldn't get to use it all that often, given the amount of stuff I have to carry around for work. So I just went ahead and purchased a preloved black epi pm from Fashionphile but now I'm worried that I should have just got a new one!! Am thinking I'll polish it up when it arrives but I can't quite shake the feeling a might have preferred the sliver HW!! :confused1:

I'm terrible at overthinking things!! :rolleyes:

The price increases are crazy considering the Economey still hasn't recovered....that being said every time I go to the LV boutique it's packed with people buying things...

I was going to look at ebay but I didn't find many blue epi alma
and I also love the silver hw
congrats on your purchase - hope it will arrive in great condition
and listen, start using it when it arrives and see how you feel with it
you might get used to it and it would be perfect
the zipper pulls can be replaced at lv for free if they peel a little
and there are things that can be dont to update a gold hw alma
but I think you will like it and black are those timeless and elegan colors
I feel can be used for years and years before you see much wear on them (vernis
not incld)
congrats again and do a reveal when you get it :smile:

it is a great bag but at this price I would think twice (personaly)
but you could check the apre loved market and look for one that might sell
for less that is couple of years old if at all (sometimes there are good finds)

I don't see any rant here, lol. I remember the Vernis Alma GM was under $1900 a few years ago but now it's over $3000. That's crazy!
