I used to enjoy it more when I didn't see 40 people wear 'LVs' (whether it be real or fake) within a matter of 3 hours at the mall.

I LV but there are three factors that are swaying me more toward other brands like Chanel.
1. The overexposure as Bella1 stated.
2. The unbearable price increases. I feel somewhat duped to know that at some point a Speedy 25 was probably $300 and now it is almost $600. I am sure the craftmanship was just as good then as it is now so I am having a hard time justifying these price hike.
3. This year's collection is nothing to be really admired. The three hole puncher line (the perforated thing) and the car wash line (the fringe thing) are a disappointment.
I think once the Damier Speedy 25 comes out, it will probably be my last LV purchase for a long time.
