Hello everyone...

I need some advice please.... I am planning to buy the speedy 40 and use it for weekend trips. However, I was just wondering if the speedy 40 would be appropriate to use as an every day handbag as well. I didn't find a thread on this. I thought I can ask our lovely tpf members for help. :idea:

What are your thoughts? Anyone who has the speedy 40, can you please post action pics? I really appreciate it. Thank you!!

I love the Speedy 40 for a handbag...I had it but took it back because I knew I could get it anytime and I needed the money for something else.

I saw a lady carrying it in the LV store and it looked great!

Really! Wow.. that's awesome. I tried it on the other day and thought maybe I can get away with carrying it as an every day handbag. I normally carry medium size bags. I guess it's a personal preference. Thanks for you advice!

speedy 35 is about as big as I would go for daily use,
I agree. I think a 40 speedy is great as a trip bag but defently not for everyday use. It would look weird to your body size I think. If you're a basketballplayer it would be the perfect size for you as handbag ;)

Just another note...The lady that was carrying the 40 size said her hubby bought it for her and she took it back only to find she liked the 40 better. But hers was really slouchy and you really couldn't tell if it was a 35 or 40.
Also, there is someone on the celebrity thread wearing one I think or some thread I remember seeing...Just for some added info. :yes:

Guys on here use the 40 as an everyday bag but it definitely would work if you are confident in rocking it and have that much to lug around lol.

Sure why not, its not much larger than the 35. Someone in my area who I always see around town uses her cerises keepall 45 as an everyday bag and she pulls it off.

It is not so great as a handbag. I own the Speedy 35 and that tends to be very heavy...I can only imagine what the Speedy 40 is like.

Question: How tall are you?

It's very practical when you have lot of things to carry in it, but I just think that if you want to wear a 40, you have to be tall.

.

I'm 5'5". I agree with the heaviness of the bag when a person carries too much. May I ask what items do you normally carry inside your speedy 35? Thanks.

Maybe not. It might be uncomfortable for an everyday. You should get it if you travel a lot and light because its space is very convenient!

If you want an every day bag, the 25, 30, and 35 are fine.
