That would leave me over $250 to put toward something like, oh, let's say, airfare to Palm Springs. ('cause the Speedy is $750 w/taxes or something)
Part of me wants that auth bag, the other part of me thinks I would be stupid/foolish to splurge on a coated canvas bag when I could get so much more bang for my buck with reps.
I mean, seriously! Credit crunch peoples! Hello? recession anyone?
Well, I've never owned any LV (real or faux). So, I can't distinguish between the two. But as I've told
, I have been bitten by the LV bug as of late! However, I've always been skeptical of LV prices especially considering that they have whole lines of bags that aren't entirely leather. I think a rep is more advisable ATM, because the majority of the msrp of a speedy is set aside for other things like shoes and accessories in your case. IMHO, a rep is more economical but that could just be my bias. Also, why have less when you could have more
, imho I don't feel that the "flaw" is of any concern. Do you? Or
, you own an auth medium, correct? Do you?

That was my fear in the very beginning when I joined this thread, if any of you remember
. And now that I'm jonesing for some LV, the fear is heightened
