I just got my first ever LV this past Wedensday and it is a Damier Speedy 30. I love it! When I first opened the box (I ordered from elux) and wore it, I wasn't sure if I loved it (it's a little big and I'm not used to handheld bags), but now I am convinced it's the perfect bag and it's beautiful! It's just the right size for me (I'm 5'4 medium to small build) and it doesn't feel awkward to carry around anymore
Hope this helps, and I'm sure you will love whatever bag you get, Damier is so beautiful and classic!
I looked at damier for a year and Saleya PM was IT. Partly because I already have a Speedy! In the running were the Ribera and the Duomo. Duomo is so expensive and I have a Ribera shaped bag already so Saleya won.
