My very first LV

Oct 24, 2005
Okay. I hope I'm not getting to be a pain, asking a ton of questions that have no obvious results, but you will see them, I promise.

Okay, now my question. I'm on the cusp of my first designer bag purchases - one will be a balenciaga city, the other an LV. That'll be it for pretty much the rest of my life (:lol: ), so I'm trying to chose carefully.

I'm pretty certain I want a Speedy - its a classic shape, very functional, and still a good-looking bag - my dilemma is the size. At first I thought 'no problem, I'll get the 30'. But the thing is, I'm looking for the Speedy to be more of an everyday bag than the balenciaga, and since I'm a student, that means I need to put an awful lot of crap in it. Now I've been comparing sizes with my tape measure (yes, I'm a geek:shame: ), and I'm worried that the only Speedy actually larger than the b-bag is the 40, which most people here refer to as 'luggage'. And the b-bag didn't look that big in the store.

So my basic question is - 30, 35 or 40? - but I'd also like to hear from those of you who actually own the bags - what can you actually fit in them? My main criteria is needing to fit an A4 notebook in it if I use it for school.

Sorry for the rambling, but anything you guys can tell me would be so helpful. And I'll never find another group of people who'll actually know what they're talking about!:lol:

i have a 30 and i like the saggy look so i don't do anything fits my notebook, but i don't know what the measurements are for A4...There's obviously a big difference between a 30, 35 and 40, so you should go to the boutique (with your notebook) and try them all in to get a feel for it.
