I have no idea why I am so confused. Kinda makes me feel like a loser because in the end, these are only bags.

So I had decided on the Totally PM in Azur for my birthday gift, but the more I look at it and try it on, I'm just not 100% convinced. Something is bothering me and I am not exactly sure what it is. I think though if I am not entirely sure about it right now that I may not enjoy it in the long run.

I bought the Papillon 30 tonight which was my other choice and I've been comparing the two at home so I could make a decision. I was extremely excited about the Papillion, way more than I was about the Azur Totally, which I guess says something. However, now after trying it on a bunch and putting all my stuff in it, I realize it's just not gonna work out :sad: It's not as easy on the shoulder as I originally thought it would be and I guess I carry a little too much for it cuz the bag is very heavy and I am scared the strap will break if I do the one strap trick with it. Big sigh right there :shucks:

Now I am thinking back to when I was asking everyone here about the Mono Speedy 25 a couple months ago. I have it in the 30 and feel it is too big on me now. I've had it for 4 years. I love the 25 and think it will be good for me. I guess maybe I should go with that one as my gift because it's something I would love to have, but couldn't really justify buying it because of having the same bag in a larger size. As a gift though..why not?? Haha! Also, I already know that I love the Speedy and it's a true classic.

Do you think that sounds like the best choice?

Has anyone else been so confused about a Louis bag like this before?! I feel sooooo silly :nogood:

I think that you should go with the speedy 25. It is better to have a gift with you love and use a lot then a gift you won't use that much.

It is tough hee but agree with Forsyte : You are Normal...:smile:

I would also choose the totally but you must feel the bag so if your heart says speedy, go for it. Happy Birthday :P

Hey - chin up. You are choosing between goodies, its not like you have to pick to come down with either the plague or cholera, no?

Might help to step away for a moment, take a walk, watch a movie, go visit a friend, anything. Clear your mind and then have a second look, might be easier to make a desition then.

Good luck, sweetie, and remember that this is a "good" problem.... and those, we welcome more than the bad ones! ;)
 
Happy birthday!

This is a common situation. I happens to me all the time! My hubby will ask me, if each of this is a last piece and you can only buy one, which one will you get? Which one will leave you with regrets if you don't?

Hope his advice helps! I would let my thoughts run wild and the bag that keep on appearing in my mind will be the one that I wld buy!

Very good advice from everyone already. I would just return the Pap and Totally and get the Speedy if that's the one you really love and will use the most. Good luck!

A sunny, happy place!
I'd say go for the speedy 25 - it's a beautiful classic and a perfect size for someone petite and does not carry much stuff. You won't regret this purchase!

Eh Ohh Canada!
i agree with canadianstudies, sounds like you want a shoulder bag. What about Thames? comes in mono and damier, and its on the smaller side..

If your collection is small I think it is silly to have two of the same bags that are just inches apart sizewise.

If you tell me you have a dozen LVs then I would say get a second Speedy.

You need to expand.

I feel crazy too sometimes obsessing over a new bag....just like someone else mentioned it is a good problem to have. Go for what you really love and makes your heart skip a beat! Good luck!

Hey you are not alone. I am such a confused person when it comes to picking the right LV bag. Let me tell you this: give azur totally another chance. It seems you need a everyday shoulder bag. Something comfortable. There is the batignolles horizontal,vertical, odeon MM, medeleine pm that is around the price range of totally. If I were you I would not get the speedy 25 as you already have one. :smile: good luck

How about the Tivoli PM. It holds about the same as the Speedy 25 and is very stylish. I wouldn't get two of the same bags if my collection was small. :smile: Or, if you really want something in Azur, I would stick with the Totally or NF. Both are great bags.....
