My first "real" purse - The Manhattan (PM)! Have to share!


Mar 27, 2008
:heart:Hello to all you LV afficionados!:heart:

I have been reading this forum for a bit, and feel the need to share my LV story!

So, I had been thinking about getting what I call a "real" purse for some time now...but my rational side kept telling me that spending this type of money on a bag was pure I tip-toed in the market by buying a Coach purse 2 months ago. Now, don't get me wrong...the Coach I bought is superb...but it didn' t make my LV craving go away.

Fast forward 2 months.

Hubby and I planned a trip to Paris...and I had (previously, in secret) googled the LV locations in one day we are walking on Champs Elysees...and of course the LV store is right we both walk in...I felt like a kid in a candy store...then my husband tells me "you know what...just buy the purse you want. I know you'll never be truly happy with any other purse you buy".


I actually didn't really plan on this purchase, so I hadn't done my homework to get to know all the with the help of the best saleslady around (a glass of champagne always helps)..I picked it!

The Manhattan pm!!!

it's a brilliant bag in my opinion......chic, yet modern (I am 31)...I LOVE it.


Thanks for reading!!
