I just bought the Artsy and I love it. I'm a Speedy girl, though, and I love Speedys. The Roses Speedy is so nice -- it was still available on louisvuitton.com a few days ago. I'd rather get a new one from the website (cheaper price, too!!). Let us know what you decide.

I have the Roses speedy and still love it. I haven't carried it much lately due to the rain but will definitely bring it out for the spring. With that being said, $1700.00 is way to much to spend on one. I've seen new ones selling for much less and even below retail. I would check Bonanzle, Fashionphile and Malleries before spending that much.

Good luck!

I bought the roses speedy from the store and I used it a TON until the weather got cold. I haven't really used it since then but you can believe I'll be taking her back out when spring comes around, I still love her to death. I say you should definitely get one, but I would maybe wait a little longer to find one for a better price. $1700 is just way too much IMO. I'd try to get at or below retail, since it'll be used anyway.
Good luck!

lV.com still has them for 1300!!!!!! There are a lot on ebay now but sellers want more than retail..... meanwhile they are still available online....which I totally don't get!!!!!
Anyway, I am sooo tempted to just buy one too, but think I will get more use out of the poemme alma mm which I also have been obsessing over!!!!!
It's a hot bag...so I say GO FOR iT!!!!!

I had so much personal drama with the roses. I received the pochette last year as a gift, and then bought the neverfull for myself. I just couldn't justify the money spent, so I sold it when we were buying a new home. I just bought the neverfull roses again a couple of weeks ago, but just returned it on Sunday as I decided it didn't fit my lifestyle/wardrobe. I think that the roses pattern is beautiful, but it wasn't something that I would wear or carry very often. However, if it works for you, then go for it!

wow, the price is a little steep, but if you can barging with them by a few hundred, maybe it'll be worth it.
