Snatched this Speedy up on eBay for a bargain $330 and had it authenticated this week at LV Manhasset (I already knew it was real though, from spending way too much time here LOL) Anyway, I can't BELIEVE that I never bought this bag from the get go and now that I have it, I'm not sure why I ever passed it up. It was always a bag that I lpassed over but the more I saw it on everyone (HERE!) the more it grew on me...I was thinking of the cerises, but this is a true LV classic and a welcome addition. It also took everything in me to walk out of LV empty handed but as you can see, Speedy isn't the only addition to my purse family-she's pictured here with the Grenat Paddy which just arrived TODAY Adopted from PFer Carolyn (sunspark) and originally owned by PFer Fayden There is some guilt involved with that purchase (way too many bags int he last 5 weeks and I blame it all on YOU!!) but I've been on the hunt for a red bag and this color was TOOOO perfect in terms of being EXACTLY what I wanted for this fall. Plus, I always wanted a Paddy Must. Stop. Now.
