ARGH! As many of you know I have been super super excited about Love 2 since the day I found out about it. After the manager at my LV contacted me about these and had me first on the waiting list, I was so prepared for the release and everything. When I saw actual pics of it, I liked the bag but I wasn't extremely impressed, however, I still wanted one. Throughout the next couple of weeks I kept in touch with the manager, asking for info about these bags, talking a lot about them here on TPF in the summary thread, etc. I was super prepared to pick mine up on the 15th...and of course, we didn't get any on the 15th. So while I'm waiting for this bag to arrive, I read posts on here calling the bag cheap, tacky, fake-LV, not worth a single penny, ugly, etc...and while I understand this is a forum and we are ALL entitled to our opinions I kind of have to admit, reading all these comments in a thread about a bag that I'm super excited about kind of hurts. I don't think I've seen a bag after the Tribute been bashed to death like this. It just makes me feel like that if I get this bag a lot of people would consider me an idiot for getting such a thing. Well anyway, moving on, since that is not the point of the thread. Now, I'm questioning how much I want this bag. I mean, I'm still waiting, I've called a couple of times (and still no news), and I do admit that the tote is kind of plain. ALTHOUGH it's canvas (and all mono/damier/azur bags ARE canvas), this isn't as fancy as my other LV's and it's pretty casual. Today at work (yeah I think about LV at work ALLLL the time) I was contemplating buying something small just to satisfy my LV craving/impatience but then that would take away from the money I was planning on putting towards this tote. Another alternative was Reade PM, but again that would take away from my main purse fund and there's just...so many TPF members with the amarante Reade right now! I kind of want my purchase to be unique. My next bag after Love 2, should I get it, will be the Beverly MM and there is in fact a waiting list for that...I really want to call in tomorrow and tell my SA take me off the list for Love 2 and put me on the list for Beverly, so I don't have to wait as long if in the end I don't get Love 2. But oh my, what if I still like the Love 2 IRL, buy it, and a couple days later she calls me telling me Beverly is in and I'm not ready to buy it?!?!!? Well, anyway...thanks for reading my rant. I'm sooo confused right now. Sorry if umm, the third paragraph sounded really bitter, but really I wrote this out of confusing and impatience for LV!! I think all I really need is a money tree in my backyard so I can get more now.
