After many months (years?) of researching and coveting bags, I finally purchased my first LV! I originally wanted the Neverfull MM. I knew it. However, I thought I would put the Speedy on my arm just to verify the Neverfull was what I wanted. Well, the AWESOME SA, Kevin, at the Raleigh LV in Saks pulled out the Speedy 35 first. I put it on my arm and knew IMMEDIATELY this was my bag. Tried the Neverfull and it did not compare (although it will be my next bag). But the Universe let me know that I would be happiest with the Speedy first, so here she is!!! Before I bought her in the store. Happy, happy!
