I was hoping you guys can help me decide on my next bag. I was at LV today and I was stressing on these bags, Manhattan PM, Damier Alma, and Damier Speedy 25. These are all cute bags but I have an issue with each of them. I was liking the PM a lot until this lady walked in there with her PM. The vacheta handle has turned this uneven dark color. Yikes, that turned me off right away. Is there any way of preventing this weird dark coloring from happening or maybe slowing it down? I have the popincourt but it is only a few mos old and the vacheta is still light. The Damier Alma is also nice. I the color and don't have to worry about the handles changing color. Also, it's big enough to put the necessary stuff in there, but not so big that it will overwhelm my 5', 105 lbs frame. My kids and husband commented that it was too big for me. What do you guys think? Now for the Damier speedy 25. My issue with this is the shape of the bag. How do you keep the shape? Since there is no bottom support, the bag will sag when filled. Is it then necessary to put a cardboard on the bottom to keep the shape? So far, I only have 2 LVs, a popincourt and a epi mandarin pont neuf. I thought that adding a damier to the collection would be nice, please let me know what you think. Thanks.
