You know, every now and then I think about buying another brand, I obsess over it, etc. I know some of you have already 'cheated' I try to envision myself with this 'other brand' in say 10 years or even 1 or 2 years and wonder if I'll love it the same as I did when I first saw it and I honestly don't think I would. I can see myself with my speedy in the next 10, 20, 30 years still getting lots of use out of it and it not going out of style. That to me is what is so great about LV and I don't think any other brand has that longevity (except Hermes Birkin/Kelly of course). I would hate to spend $100's or $1000's on a bag that is just trendy. This is what keeps me from buying other bags right now!!!
