I live in the Twin Cities of Minnesota...typical large midwestern metropolitan area (certainly not as large as Chicago, but still around 4 million people). I see women toting around LV when I am downtown and sometimes at my part time job in the suburbs. (I work in a french/engligh antique furniture shop). I tend to always see the same styles though...always monogram in either Alma, Lockit and occassionally Manhattan PM. I have never seen anyone carry damier or epi..or anything colorful when it comes to LV. Do you think some styles tend to be regional as far as people's preference? I happen to love a variety!
