I own a few Gucci pieces. I've always loved their classic style. However, recently I seemed to have been lost. I know there is nothing wrong with owning pieces from other designers, but I have apparently jumped onto the band wagon. A week and a half ago, I purchased my first, second and third LV pieces in a week's time. I like to be different, so I purchased all Epi leather. I loved the Epi Alma; however, it was not a big enough bag for me. No offense to anyone, but IMO, LV is just overrated..... I returned my Epis and purchased my new 'Pelham' bag!!!! YAY!!!
