My new OTG MM Empriente Tourterelle and my somewhat new Pochette Métis. I bought my original PM over 4 years ago. Brought it in December to have the glazing fixed. Unfortunately, my purse was one of the purses that got stolen at the LV boutique. Luckily they had a new one to replace it.
That Tourterelle color is probably even more incredible in person !! Gorgeous !!

Agree, the new canvas on the speedy feels so thin and same on the multi pochette. I feel like its not as good as the old ones. Hopefully it holds us well
totally agree! I am considering adding another speedy b 25 in the damier azur, but the canvas is so different. I'm not even sure I will get it. I looked at my older speedys and what a difference! The price is higher too. I guess if I didn't know the difference it wouldn't bother me.

Well the LV gods were definitely smiling on me last week! I had some Nordstrom Notes that were close to expiring, so I decided to finally pull the trigger on a Speedy in DA. I was pretty sure I wanted a 25, but still wanted to compare it to the 30 in person just to be sure. The SA didn't have any 25s in stock, but she did have a 30 . . . Made in France. Man, was I tempted. But seeing it in person made me realize that the 30 was just too big for me, so I asked her to order the 25 for me. I was proud of myself for not giving into the MIF temptation. After I went home, I was doing my usual nightly refresh-refresh-refresh stalking of the Pochette Accessories in DA . . . and it was finally Place in Cart! This was the last item on my Wishlist and I had literally been stalking it since September. Also, oops -- definitely didn't intend to get two bags in one day!

The best part of this (long) story -- when the 25 arrived, it was Made in France!! Definitely felt like a karmic reward.

Beautiful pieces!! Which Nordstrom had the DA 30? I have been looking everywhere for one. Do you have your SA contact? Thanks!

My January Haul, for my April birthday :angel:. I picked up the Beaubourg Hobo MM and the Scala Mini. So in love with the Beaubourg Hobo MM in the mahina leather. I couldn’t find any reviews of it online or photos. I posted my shopping trip on my blog with a review of all the bags I tried on if anyone is interested. Strong contenders where the Carmel Hobo, the Muria (still want) And the Petite Malle Souple.
Gorgeous - what is it like on shoulder.

My first LV and first designer bag ever! In love with her so I’m babying her too much !
Congrats hun! She’s a real beauty! :tup: :loveeyes: :loveeyes: And welcome in the Louis lovers club!:drinks:
As your bag is in damier Ebene with treated leather, you don’t have to baby her! ;) Enjoy her to the fullest and give her a good wear!:heart:
