Hello everyone. I am new to this board and am very thankful I found it. My wife's birthday is due to arrive shortly and I will be buying her a LV bag as part of her present. I'm simply just not sure which one to get. I've bought her many bags in the past, from JP Tod to Prada to many LV bags. Most recently I bought her a black Monogram Multicolore Speedy and the Monogram Canvas Musette. She uses the Speedy as her "special occasion" bag and used the Canvas Musette as her everyday bag. She absolutely loved the Musette because its long shoulder strap and flip top made it very easy to handle while taking care of our 2 young daughters. Unfortunately, the strap on the Musette broke and my wife was told by the reps at LV that they were unable to repair it. (I will bring it to a local shoe repair shop to have it fixed somehow) Given this history, I'm not sure if I should get her one of the "essential" bags or a newer model that my not have staying power. The Tod and Prada bags were very trendy and thus have not seen the light of day in many years. I'm reasonably sure they never will again. I would hate to invest in another (what I consider) expensive bag that my wife would only use for 6 months to 1 year. Some guidance would be greatly appreciated.
