Today started out pretty hectic...had to take the GRE which lasted for a couple hours. I think I did rather well... And I got my papillon with its pochette when I got home! Although I've gotten a picture authentication by caroldiva (who deemed it authentic), I did my own analysis of it just in case...and it looked pretty real. The canvas looks and feels identical to my vintage LVs, and I think the reason the heat stamp looked weird (with the encircled R) was due to the fact the seller stretched it out to take the picture. The cross-grain interior leather was in wonderful shape, and the leather straps are similar to the older LV Monceau (which I personally think is more versatile than vachetta). The seller left a really nice note saying she hoped I would enjoy it as much as she did. I'm really happy that I got have a really nice deal off ebay. And that's all.
