I just found out my BFF is going to Paris this week and she offered to buy me my 1st LV. Now I have little time to decide and need your help.

I'm a 32 yrs old lawyer, 5'3", 110lbs. Although I have a 1yr old baby, I'm used to carrying a handbag around. My current everyday bag is a Coach Hamptons Signature Tote in Khaki (a handbag).

Since this will be my first LV and my everyday bag, I am thinking either a Speedy (25 or 30 for my size?) or a Palermo PM.

Although I love the Speedy and plan to own it in the future anyway, I'm more inclined to purchase the Palermo now, bc of my age and job, and bc I see too many fake Speedys around, which is sorta annoying.

What do you think?

Many thanks!

Do U know about Vachetta & how the leather patinas & the bag starts to look different? if you don't mind that , than we can discuss monogram pieces, otherwise damier is more child/stain friendly.

Yes, I'm aware of the vachetta issues but I think I'll go with mono anyway, I love it.

ok...than I would say palermo or cabas piano/mezo (stunning bags) are great because you can put all your work related documents, as well as use it when going out with toddler. Universal and multi-functional.
Speedys are good when children are bit older, I would say.

I think the palermo would be the best.....Speedy's are not expensive so they are easier to pick up anytime.

palermo. its better because you can wear it multiple ways and with a 1 yr old, i think you need that

Aprilmay, although I love the Damier Azur, I'll go with mono this time since this will be my first LV (but I dream of a Speedy Azur for later on). I love the Neverfull and have seriously considered it, but I think Palermo is more elegant to use with paintsuits and tailleurs, which is my everyday look for work. I think Damier NF would be my perfect weekend bag.

Ooops, my wishlist is growing by the minute... LOL

LOL that tends to happen with LV.
Having said that, I have the Speedy (actually, I have a few of them LOL) and love the style. However, I also really like the look of the Palermo. I think as a first LV, a Speedy would be a good choice. That's just my opinion, though. Keep us posted on what you decide! :smile:

The Palermo is a good choice! You can buy the Speedy later on, it's not that expencive! But I would absolutely not buy the 25.
