How obviously LV is a watercolor speedy?

I'm planning on carrying my new white Watercolor Speedy out for her first outing tomorrow, but I'm a bit nervous. I'm going to a church ladies day luncheon (large event to be held at a hotel), and I don't want to appear too over the top. KWIM.

Before I got into purses, I wouldn't have known a watercolor LV from a ziploc bag, and most of the ladies at tomorrow's event are probably of the same mindset.

I know it's crazy to buy these awesome purses, and then to hesitate wearing them, but trying to walk the line between enjoying my treasures and not rubbing it in others' faces is tough.

What do y'all think?

I know what you mean. I am proud of my bags, but on some occassions I have stuck to damier instead of mono in order to down play. I don't think that the water color screams LV like the mono does. You should be fine.

Just enjoy your bag. If you're not actually 'rubbing it in their faces' then I think you'll be just fine. All you're doing is carrying the bag.

Very obvious!

But only because the first time I saw one on-line I fell in love and I've been looking for one in real life to see if it looks as good.

"Non-fans" probably wouldn't know it from a ziploc bag as you say, or would think it was a fake (if that would bother you).

Is it a wealthy church where it's "live and let live" because they assume you can afford to treat yourself and still do good, or are most members depriving themselves of all luxuries to be able to afford to give to others?

I live in an upscale neighbourhood and go to church with wealthy people who think nothing of giving a young child an LV pochette, your mileage may vary as they say!

There is something about the watercolor speedy that seems really sweet and friendly so I think its fine.

If you worry about it, it's going to be obvious. Be confident in everything you wear and everyone will think you are fabulous & fierce. GL!

I agree with the others saying that it is "sweet and friendly", you should be more than fine carrying it! Good luck, and enjoy!
