What should I buy first?
I voted for the Pallas clutch only because I'm not crazy about the plate on the front of the Favorite. I would think it would scratch easily. I do have the Pallas clutch and it holds a surprising amount. I have the IPhone 8 and it fits in the exterior pocket.
If you need to carry more items, are not bothered with potential creasing issues, prefer the flap closure and are more into the the cute/preppy look - go for the Favorite PM.
If you only want to carry essentials (phone, compact wallet, compact, lipstick, tissues, keys), prefer a zipper closure, like external pocket option and prefer a more edgy/modern look - go for the Pallas Clutch.
However, for a first LV I’d suggest something with more bang for your buck - between the two, that would be the Favorite. I love my Pallas Clutch, but I do feel it’s a bit overpriced. Favorite has a much more reasonable price point.
Pallas for me because zip over magnet/ flap closure. Plus it's prettier
