Mine started this year... I've always liked LV but didn't really care much for it, because of too many fakes and most of the real one's I know are from my friends moms or from much older friends.ush: ...'till early this year I had lunch with a friend and her mom, Her mom had a very old Mono Alma with very dark but clean and even patina... I just couldn't take my eyes of her... she was just the most elegant and beautifull LV purse I have ever seen! Since then I couldn't stop thinking about Louis Vuitton... I knew I had to have one... My DH surprised me with one on my birthday last June... I dont know if this love affair with LV would end or not... But I'm glad I have my LV babies!!!
