Hi Everyone,
When I saw this Limited Edition Alma bb I fell in love with it and preordered it. It should be arriving on Friday, May 7th. It's only in the camel color and in taurilion leather (the same leather as the capucines). I hear it is going to be absolutely beautiful and has a special jacquard brown monogram interior. I placed my preorder (paid for it upfront) but wanted to make sure that my SA understands that I may not leave with it if I don't absolutely love it. Can you give me your absolutely honest opinions on this bag? What do you think about it? It only comes in camel and only in size BB I think. It's $4,000 which is a lot for an Alma bb. Do you think this bag will hold it's value or even increase in value in the years to come or is it just too much to pay for an Alma bb? I have a capucines bb in galet (have had it for over a year) and I really love the luxurious leather. Please let me know what you think - should I get this bag on Friday or not? Hit me with the realness please! I can only buy one bag a year so is this my 2021 bag? Will I regret not getting it IMG_6950.JPG IMG_6957.JPG IMG_6983.JPG IMG_6984.JPG IMG_6985.JPG

I am probably of no help (‘enabler’) but here’s my $0.02

-I :heart: Taurillon leather and if it were ‘any other’ leather for this price point I would say ‘nay’. The Taurillon leather is just luxurious.

-This is a classic LV silhouette.
-The camel color is such a lovely year-round neutral.
-I believe in enjoying life’s pleasures and this extends to luxury goods. Wear them in good health as they say.

-I would say my only ‘con’ would be the size because I would want a slightly bigger size for myself lol!
-Overall I think this is a gorgeous bag

Good luck in your decision, this is a wonderful dilemma to have!:smile:

Wendy you have a lovely collection of bags and this one fits right in. I think you deserve this bag and yes I believe you will regret letting it go. If you can have only one it is a pretty special ‘one’.
Thanks @lynnb - I agree with you. I have the Montaigne bb in empriente noir, the capucines bb in galet and this camel would round out my neutral leather bags. I can't wait to see it in person. I'm literally stalking it on instagram for more pictures now that it is getting ready to release. Thank you so much for your input.

If this is an HG to you, go for it!! But for that price point, I’m not so sold. However, I’m not an alma person or a huge enthusiast on the LV bag styles these days. If you love it, go for it. I like camel and the gold hw is nice, just very steep price

I think LV limited eds tend to increase in value by a lot, right? If you like it and will wear it either way, that seems like a pretty good safety net.

It’s a beautiful purse in a classic shape. I love the color and the monogram lining. I personally would worry that I would tire of the gold outside logos. That’s ME however, if you have been comfortable with your choices long term than I’d say go for it.

I agree with everyone above. Get it, enjoy it! It's a beautiful bag! If it arrives and you love it, you will be over the price point once you start carrying it. Lol. It's very unique and gorgeous!
