This is my first ever NEW LV items. Everything I have owned prior were purchased from Mypoupette sellers. Since I do not live anywhere near a LV store, I have never seen a brand new bag IRL. I was shocked at how white the patina is! Here are pics of my treats! I included the last pic of my Speedy 30 with my other two mono bags to compare the patina on them. The bracelet is HUGE! I love it, but wow, I was not expecting it to be so big.
