My sister is 42 and went to the LV store in New York and fell in love with the denim bags. She has a few monogram bags and likes quality leather bags so this was a departure for her tastes. The sales person made a comment to her that " a lot of ladies over the age of 45 have bought these bags" and my sister took it as a insult because she feels she looks much younger than her age. So she got mad and walked out. Now she has in her mind that these bags are too young looking for her age-which confuses me but I wanted to ask opinions if they will work for the over 40? I have not been to LV to check them out but my best friend works in the malll and fell in love with these bags.
