    i find the damier awful for some reason. :innocent:
    maybe cause the leather trims are dark :unsure:

    Damier definitely! Monogram is too common, who doesn't have a monogram LV bag(except me)! :rolleyes:

    I prefer damier over monogram. But for some reason I find the monogram is more versatile, even though they're both brown?! Probably because I'm more used to seeing the monogram (mis)matched with anything! :p

    Damier. Mono is so disgustingly popular. Whether everyone's is real or fake, they are everywhere, and it is obnoxious for everyone to have your bag. Damie is elegantly chic, and you will actually get more use out of it beacause the straps (unlike those of vachetta ones on mono bags) are totally resistant to almost any stain.

    I love Vernis :heart:, but this is going to replace my Monogram Speedy for everyday use, so I need something that will go with pretty much anything ;)

    I definitely prefer Papillon in Damier and that's why I got mine in Damier :lol:
    I actually really love Damier, just love how the handles are that rich dark brown on Damier pieces :heart:

    It seems like the goldware also stands out more on the Damier? :flower:

    Agree! On top of it ... I think that there aren't that many Damier knock-offs, so I'll guess people wudn't dare to ask or check if its real ... as said before ... i'm not a big fan of Damier, but I'm madly in love w/the papillion .. I'll guess I'd go damier!

    How about neither. :p
    c'mon, you're 21, live a little and go with a more youthful model, the Papillon is so....em..."lunching ladies", if you know what I mean. :rolleyes:

    As for the dilemma between Monogram and Damier, I mean, they're both brown, and honestly IMO nothing looks their best in brown, or when paired with something brown. As tott said, the way fashion victims are (mis)matching everything with their precious LV gear is scary. :sick:

    Haha, lunching ladies :rolleyes: I'm not sure that's the impression I'm looking for... :p So in your opinion what would make me look less like a "lunching lady"?

    I don't know, how about a chic little messenger? Vuitton makes plenty of those in almost all of their lines. Sorry, I may be a little biased cos I'm a messenger-freak. :ninja:

    i happen to think that the papillon is one of the few bags of LV that are more young than oldish looking :unsure:
    plus i think 21 is not being a teen anymore so carrying one wouldnt look bad IMO ;)
