A bag to wear mostly for casual date nights with my hubby or nights out with my girlfriends? I like smaller bags when I go out (although not clutches unless it's dressier) and was thinking the Mono Speedy 25 would be perfect (love that it's such an iconic bag)??

I don't really want to spend a ton of money (ie, over $1200) so also thought this bag would fit the bill (altho I don't want to buy it just because it's less expensive and would wait to pay more for something else down the road). I guess the Speedy 25 in Ebene could be good too, but am buying either the Ebene MM NF or Cabas Rivington so don't want to get 2 in that pattern right now, unless I hear thoughts otherwise...:smile:

Thoughts? TIA!

I think speedy 25 is great for casual date nights, girls night etc. Depends what you carry though, some (including myself) feel the 25 is too small, but I do think it looks cute.

I think the 25 is great for nights out. It might be too small for an "everyday" bag, depending on what you carry but I easily fit my camera, phone, wallet, make-up, keys, with lots of room to spare when I take my speedy 25 out at night. It's a classic iconic bag that will never go out of style so if you like it- you cant go wrong!!

For evenings out, I tend to carry just my make-up bag (which is small), sometimes a wallet, cellphone and keys. Don't need it to double as an everyday bag.

It depends what kind of date night. Going to the movies? Fine. 'Sports' type bar night? Excellent. I also find it fine as an everyday bag, but I do switch out of bags pretty often, so they never get too full of miscellaneous crap.

However, I find the shape way too casual for fancier dinners out, or like, piano bar type lounges (not that I'm at those very often, but if I were, a Speedy 25 would not be what I would reach for Jerome Kern night.) I also think it's just way too bulky for nightclubs or dance club nights or general admission concerts.

Honestly? I think if anything, a mono Eva or Beverly or a Shirley in the MC line would be more appropriate for most date night occasions. But a Speedy would be excellent for more casual dates.

Thanks! Great feedback! No, not looking for something for dressier evenings out, just casual. I have lots of small clutches and more 'evening' bags, just want a bag for something casual...movies, going for sushi, etc.

Going to LV tomorrow so will try the 25.

I think the Speedy 25 would be great for those occasions you mentioned... but so would the Speedy 30 which is a better deal for the money.

I love my mono speedy 25. This is a good size for me because I feel like sometime bigger bags get in my way.

I think the mono speedy 25 would be great. I have the speedy 25 in azur, but I use it as an everyday bag as I do not feel that it is too small for me. I take it everywhere.
