  1. After searching and searching (and getting outbid sometimes on Ebay) I received today my first LV bag!
    It's a vintage Speedy 30 (how could that miss in my collection?), authenticated by the lovely girls here.
    I exactly don't know when it was made, since I can't see any date code (maybe it faded away), but our experts dated it to early 80s.
    I love the fact that it already has patina and I don't have to baby it too much:P
    I will buy Obenauf and Blackrock products to clean the dirt it may have after years and years of use, in the meanwhile here are some pictures!

  2. the leather is really gorgeous! the color reminds me of a well worn horse saddle or something. with a good cleaning it will look even better! i love the fact that its from the 80s...it really shows in favor of LV's quality (or how their quality used to be). congrats!

  6. aliburke84, I must admit I'm not a fan of monogram LV in general, I only like some models like Popincourt, Ellipse or Manhattan, definitely not a lover of new Speedy...but this one is totally gorgeous!

  8. Congrats! What a perfect find!
     
  9. She's lovely! Mine is a '92 model and has the prettiest patina. Being an equestrian, I am partial to leather that has that supple, broken-in look. Great find...enjoy!
