My first post! Sorry - it's long! After drooling over LVs for the past few years, I finally bit the bullet and bought the mono Deauville in Feb (just before they raised the prices!), and I absolutely love it! The vachetta has a great patina, and I love how the bag has 'softened' - it seemed really stiff and big before, but it's broken in now. The only drawback that I didnt' realize before I bought it is its weight - love the wipeable lining, but I the bag is on the heavy side even with nothing in it. I was in NYC over Labor Day weekend, and naturally brought along my Deauville. Three full days later, my shoulder was KILLING me. I chalked it up to my bag, along with the fact that I had been carrying around an umbrella and a guide book, only making it even heavier. So, I started to browse for a shoulder bag - I've spoiled myself now, so only LV will do. I considered the Cabas Piano and Vavin PM, and on a whim ended up purchasing a Vavin PM in really good condition from eBay - a myPoupette recommended seller. I received it and I like it, but I'm wondering if I didn't fully consider my options before buying. I guess the Vavin is fairly common (is it?), and I tend to like things that are less common (like the Deauville). Since them, the Damier Saleya, the Vernis Houston and the Croissant GM (from another thread) has caught my eye... I've also been toying with the idea of a Mandarin Epi Speedy, but I know they're limited and it's not a shoulder bag ) What do you say? Should I hang on to my Vavin or try to sell it and keep looking around? I don't even know if I can cover my costs for the Vavin... would love your opinion!
