I have never had an LV bag before and this forum has really helped me decide exactly what I want. My only fear is walking into my LV boutique (closest one is on 5th Avenue in Manhattan) and having my first store experience ruined. Anyone have any tips on making this the best experience possible? lol. I feel so silly for asking... I went into Gucci once, and most of the SA's there were rude...didn't bother looking at me, so it's kind of turned me off into going to boutiques to purchase items. Hope to see responses soon.
