Hello everyone! I haven't been around the LV forum for so long, and I missed it. This forum is the reason I first found tPF. I have a very small LV collection, but I added a new one today. I finally got a Mandara MM in black Epi, and she is absolutely fabulous. A couple of years ago, I was in the SCP LV store and fell in love with this bag. I fondled it and drooled on it and wanted it so bad. Alas, the price tag was a bit too steep at the time and I ended up buying the Batignolles, which I still love. Then, the Mandara MM was discontinued, and my heart broke. Usually, I fall in love with a bag, then forget about it as soon as something else comes along. The Mandara just stuck in my mind...all this time!! I guess that's a sign that I really had to have one. I recently found one on eBay that is in absolutely pristine condition. I got her today and I am just in love. She even came in her original dustbag and shopping bag. (If the seller happens to read this - THANK YOU!) So, now my little LV collection consists of: Mandara MM in black Alma in black Epi (w/gold hardware) Parioli Batignolles Horizontal Illovo MM Pochette wallet in red Epi Small agenda in red Epi Pochette Cosmetique in MC Hmmm, now I think I need a red Epi bag to match my accessories, maybe an Alma. Oh yeah, and a pretty LV scarf to tie on my black Mandara. Sorry for the long post, I'm just happy and wanted to share.
