Hi everybody,

My lovely husband surprised me with the Estrela MM for my birthday. This is my first LV bag :smile: I was going back and forth between Totally MM and Speedy B 35 for my first LV. Anyway, my husband and I, we went up to Seattle for the Thanksgiving weekend and stopped by at LV boutique. When I saw the Estrela MM there, I told him I like it.. and that was what I got for my birthday as a surprised gift :smile:

I was a little skeptical about it at first since I like slouchy bag and Estrela MM seems to be a little too boxy when I first got it. So I really thought about returning it for a speedy B 35. Anyway, my husband convinced me to keep it (he's not a fan of speedy line) and I'm glad I did because now that the canvas and leather starting to get soften from use, it now has the slouchy look I've been wanting and I have to say I love my bag now more than when I first got it :lol:

I haven't seen a lot of Estrela pictures on here at all. I guess this bag doesn't get much love due to its boxy shape :lol: Totally understandable since it also took me a while to really appreciate its beauty. So here are some pictures of her



Brand new Estrela .. a little boxy as you can see



Estrela carried as a tote bag



With the long shoulder strap



As a cross body bag



Another angle as cross body bag

In these MOD pics, I put in the bag a few stuff I usually carry (iPad, cosmetic bags, wallet, cel phone). You can see that the bag is a little slouchy when a little more weight has been put in the bag. It's a very comfortable bag and I usually dress very casual so I think this bag is a great fit for my wardrobe ;)

I'm planning on getting another LV bag when we go to Paris next year since it's quite cheaper to get one there .. then why not?? :lol: Thank you guys for checking out my first thread!

By the way, I am quite petite, 5'2'' tall and weigh around 114 lbs. So if you're petite like me and thinking about getting this bag.. I would say go for it if you like bigger bags. I seriously don't think Estrela MM is too big for me at all.

Congrats on your bag and thank you for all of the mod pics! You are right- it is a beautiful bag. Your mod pics are much better than just seeing the bag on the website.
