So...

Proper toying with the idea of owning something from the totem line.

it will be my first LE addition...

So I am contemplating on a Speedy.. i think (haha)

So, what are the pros with these items and do you see any flaws?? Are they a bit much?? I mean is this something thats solely kept for limited occasions or would you wear it a bit?

Someone mentioned the epi pieces will curl up over time which scares me.

I am always frettfull about buying limited "quirky" pieces and tend to stay safe with classics...

Thoughts??

Hmm, I rather buy classics too, but that's because I don't want to own a lot of LVs.

But I'm a huge cat lover so I'm going to buy a totem item as soon as I find out which one is a cat. So my reason to buy a totem item is much "weirder" than yours. :P

I purchased the Totem Speedy in Flamingo and I LOVE it! I have 13 Speedy's and this is the first one with no vachetta to worry about and will not show it's age. It's a Limited Edition, so it's a collectible and not many will be made so it's more special and a conversation piece. I will use it everyday or in my handbag rotation. Please watch my You Tube video on it under: Leo Lion LV Speedy Totem Unboxing :smile: Some extra information in that video. Let me know what you think. XOXO

I like totem speedy very much, mainly because I like speedy in general. I haven't bought one yet cuz they are more expensive then classic.
And I know LV make LE every year, soon there will be alot of LE , this make it less limited, I would think it as "special " edition rather than limited edition. So if you like it you buy it.

For my actual bags I prefer more classic designs since they are not a fad that may look dated in the future, especially at such a price point, instead they are timeless. However, I find the occasional LE slg can add a lot of character, colour, and whimsy to a collection without becoming overbearing or create possible buyer's remorse in the following years when styles change.

Hello! I just purchased my Totem Speedy in Magenta. This is the second speedy 30 I own and both of mine are Limited Edition. I prefer Limited Edition pieces because they are unique and once they are gone, they are gone. I do have an Speedy 35 in azur that I love, but I can always get a classic speedy but not the limited edition pieces. I have to say that the quality is higher on the limited edition items. If you love it, go for it! I am thrilled with my LE speedy purchases. I hope this helps!

I think the totem pieces are really cute. I had purchased a totem alma Bb in flamingo.. And as much as I loved the colors, I know I wouldn't love it forever.

It wouldn't be a classic staple in my collection for me. I knew I'd get sick of it down the line. But that's just me. There are just some things with pops of color that I can't let go. I just had some doubts so after a couple days of having it and trying it on at home. I finally decided.

However, I think the totem looks best on the speedys. It looks more neutral with just light touches since it's on a larger bag. On the alma, it pretty much took over. It was super cute. I didn't want to part with it because it's so eye catching but I can't have 3 alma BBs so I had to choose lol.

I exchanged it for an Alma BB in epi in Rose nacre. It was a perfect blend between vernis and epi since it is a pearly pink! I just know it would be a classic for me forever and i love little pink handbags. For me, it filled the pink void I wanted more so than the totem.

Depends on you though.

How do you personally feel about it? When it comes down to it, do you love? I say go try it on and take a couple of pictures. Talk with your SA and some fellow friends on tPF. When I'm stuck, I always figure out what I want eventually. Just takes some mulling Lolol.

That is what I love about the Totem, worry free!! No water or rain can hold me back!! I would recommend to at least go and try one out at the store. [emoji4][emoji4][emoji7][emoji7]
