Hi! I am still relatively new here - and still an LV virgin. My husband has promised me an LV wallet for my birthday this year. It has yet to come into the store (Zippy wallet, epi leather) but it's as good as bought. Now I have issued to myself a challenge. I just had my third (and last) baby, a boy, six months ago. Since my reproductive years are behind me, I am rip-roaring to get my body back. So I've promised myself an LV handbag to wrap around my LV wallet once I achieve my goal weight. I need more incentive than just trimmer thighs... Anyhoo - here's my question to all you LV experts: BUT before I get to it - can someone tell me just what the hell is vachetta?) I love LV purses - thanks to all you I think it has the potential to turn into a bit of an obsession. Because I have 3 kids, I need a decent sized purse. I like the monogram canvas, however I can't stand how much it's knocked off. I need something that I can use Every Day - so it has to be a shoulder bag. No short handles for me. I also need a zipper top - to avoid all my stuff falling out. I really like the MC, but I just think it might be a bit too trendy - and also I feel a bit old for it. Ditto with the denim... although I looove the denim, I want something I can carry everywhere, and I can't do denim if I am a bit 'dressed up'. Basically I want the handbag equivalent of diamond stud earrings. Never out of style, appropriate everywhere from the grocery store, to the gym, to a wedding... you know what I mean?? So what is the right bag for me?
