I'm planning to get a speedy as a Christmas present for myself. In another thread, I was confused on the size but now I have decided to get a 30. I was sure of getting the damier but on 2nd thought, maybe the mono. Here's the thing: I love the mono but its just EVERYWHERE! Plus, I'm scared of the vachetta hehe As for the damier, I was soo sure it was the perfect one because it wasn't too common and it didn't have vachetta. However, when I was trying it on, a friend of mine said that the checkerboard pattern looked too masculine. Now, I am utterly confused!! Please help! I really want to get this bag before the price increase.
