Left my job yesterday after 29 years (redundancy) so decided to visit the West End of London for some retail therapy.

Sitting opposite me on the tube was a young woman carrying a VERY FAKE Mono Speedy. I am a complete novice when it comes to LV, but even I knew this was fake. It had a nylon zip:wtf:, PVC handles and trim and the rivets were like the poppers you find on clothes:wtf:

I really wanted to get out my phone and take a photo but it was a bit obvious.

Decided I needed to visit LV to recover and ending up buying the Mono French wallet and Looping MM:yahoo: Only thing I am disapointed with, which I didn't notice until I got home, is the dust bag for the Looping. It's not one of the lovely brushed cotton one's with a flap, but a cotton drawstring one which feels a bit rough. Still it's only the loopings bed. I won't be wearing it out

Was supposed to be saving up to buy a Damier Azur, but whilst in the shop decided all of the Azur styles were to big for what I want. I really wish they did a bigger selection in Azur, and inparticular some smaller sizes.

I can live and hope.

Must stop spending as I am out of work :cursing: Need to find a job fast:rolleyes:

I was in the Bond Street & Selfridges stores today. Can't saw a saw a Damier Speedy 25, but I wasn't really looking

I will probably be going to the City of London Store later next week, so will look for you if you like.

Congratulations on your new bag. I saw a woman with a looping recently while I was grocery shopping. She was wearing it on her shoulder - it was very classic and very classy looking...and the perfect size.

Wish you the best on your job search.

glad you found something nice in LV!

I actually prefer the drawstring dust bags than the flappy ones for my bags. I find it easier to store...well actually I use them for my speedies and put clothes in it so my speedies will hold their shape better. lol. i like the flappy ones for my accessories and smaller bags like pochette.
