Hi everyone. All of the posts about MC, and how current they are, etc, have gotten me to thinking. As you know, I am waiting for a credit from ELux to my bank account, at which time I will be heading over to the LV boutique in San Francisco. My original plan was to pick up a Mono Speedy 35 and another bag or accessories, to be determined when I get there. A couple of days ago, I started to consider buying a Multicolor bag instead, probably the Alma (it is my favorite MC style, and I own one in mono canvas). If I buy the MC Alma, I can not buy another bag or any accessories for a while. My dilemma is that the two polls recently done on this board show that even 40% of TPFers feel the MC canvas is not in style any longer. I personally think it is still very hot, BUT will it be in five years? For the cost of an LV bag, I want to know I will be using it for years to come. I know a mono Speedy 35, or a Damier bag, for example, will be wearable and fashionable in 5, or even 10 or more years. Do you think that a multicolor Alma will be just as relevant, fashionable, and a pleasure to wear in five years as it is now? I know I should wear what I like, but I admit I do give some little consideration to what is in style. So, should I buy some safe basics, like my Speedy and a Damier bag this time, and see what flashy new bags may come out in time, or should I get the one fancy multiclor bag now? i really appreciate your input, and it will help me decide.
