I'm so excited to purchase my first LV (yay!) and I'd love my fellow TPFers opinion on whether I should go with the mono or the damier azur. (Considerations: I'm a professional in my early 20's and planning to spend around $600) My concerns: 1. Speedy? The speedy's seem to be the most popular, but also the most faked - would it seem like trying to be too much of a "follower" to get the speedy? 2. Mono vs. Damier Azur? I'm quite torn b/c the mono is obviously a classic - but it kinda screams "look at me, I'm an LV!", whereas the azur is a little more discreet (and is *such* an adorable print!). I've considered the fact that the azur will show things like dirt and pen marks more (and I'd be taking it on the subway with me ), however the patina looks better on the mono than the azur. I've also heard that the canvas on the azur is thinner than the mono - any truth to that? Which leaves me so confused....which should I choose???
