Somehow, my brain turned "one cheaper bag" into "Louis Vuitton! Yes, please!" I have one LV now, the ever-classic Speedy 30, but I'd like another, more structured bag, something slightly larger for those times when I'm toting more than the usual amount of life crap. I'd really like a Speedy 35 or 40, but for the money, that seems a bit redundant. So!
I've been looking at the Deauville for quite a while now, possibly through two price increases, one certainly, so I'd be insane to wait any longer. It's 1150.00 on eLuxury, which, luxury, no kidding, because it's basically coated canvas.
I wouldn't balk at paying that much for leather (I already have!), but...canvas! I think this is Salma Hayek, but I can't say for sure. One thing for sure is that she looks as short as I am, whoever she is, so this is a good picture for sizing purposes.
Including the Speedy, I own four LV pieces: the Passport Organizer Wallet, which is the best wallet I've *ever* owned (I think I'm the only woman on the planet who has one); the Snapped Billfold and Coinpurse wallet for smaller bag days, and the Pochette Cosmétique for lipsticks and such. The Passport Organizer was worth every penny, by the way; I've had it about three years and even though I've carried it every day, it's still in nearly mint condition.
LV love notwithstanding...1150.00 for canvas? I can't decide! I'm going to the Mothership this weekend; I'll have a better idea once I see the Deauville in person. I can pose in front of the mirror for a while, and drive the sales staff crazy with my indecision. Maybe I'll buy something small to soothe their anger. One of those little round coin thingies, perhaps.
1150.00! For canvas! But I really, really want one.
