I want this purse!

.

I am not a fan of designer bags, I love changing my purse to match my outfit, but solely because I am careless when it comes to taking care of my bags. I always carry a pen since I randomly meet potential clients and need to jot down things, so that tends to miraculously mark up everything in my bag including my purse!

I personally also don't like being one of those girls that has the exact same bag as everyone else or be all in the hype just because it's "designer" people think I have money, LOL. I am not oppose to it by any means, I just never had a penchant for designer ANYTHING as I found so much solace in my non-designer items. Even with makeup, I still stick to drugstore and MAC, which to me isn't all that expensive considering you get more bang for the buck! But I DO love certain styles of bags from various designers such as Michael Kors or Furla; I personally just can't imagine myself spending $400+ on a bag that my clumsiness is going to ruin, although I know you get what you paid for.

When the BF and I started dating, he was going to get me this Coach purse, and I stopped him because I told him I wasn't into designer purses and that id rather have him spend that money on something else- so instead he got me a Tiffany's Bracelet which I love!

Only recently have I fallen in love (rather obsessed) with a designer purse, that I actually REALLY want...the Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Speedy 30.

I have no idea why I want it so bad, it's not even a "special bag" but for some weird reason I really like it! And unfortunately I had my eye on it before I started seeing people with it, but I still WANT it.

Although it's a tough $650.00 :(

I better show Santa I am good this year....



Hilary Duff sporting it!

I'm totally indifferent to name brands, too, when it comes to purses and jewelry. Price is SUCH a huge factor and I HATE seeing my mom pining for high end brands and wistfully longing for some latest whatever that somebody else has. LOL I probably will never get a job at Vogue.

Hey Girl,
I love my LV Speedy bag. I have the traditional monogram. It holds so much stuff, although it can be hard to find things in the bag once you start tossing them in. I am definitely a bag whore. Anyways, haha it is funny that your sis and my sis have the same bday and you and Albert have the same bdays! aww see why we're so close..hehe anyways, hope you're doing well. I'm so tired from my trip but I go back to work tonight. BoO.

I have the LV Damier in ebony and I love this purse!!! It is my go to purse, I have other LV's that I have to take better care of because of the patina on them but this is my favorite purse out of all my purses. You should get it, you wont regret it!

May said...

Girl, I feel the same way when it comes to this bag--and I don't even like LV. There must be something mesmerizing about those azure blue squares, lol! The two things that are keeping me from buying it: 1) can't carry it on my shoulder, and 2) it doesn't retain its structure unless it's on a flat surface.

For those of you having a hard time keeping up with stuff in your bag, they have a nifty purse organizer at The Container Store!

hi vanessa, im prob the last person youd like to hear from but i just wanted to congratulate you on such amazing site! my classmates were actually talking about your site and all your makeup tips and i was just checking it out right now and its really a great site. you're really a good writer, and really have good makeup skills. congrats doing such a good job, and good luck on everything else too!

btw i have the same azur bag and its a great bag!

Distinque said...

I love the original LV speedy:) Too bad the want and lust for the bag doesn't fade, it actually intensifies doesn't it? ErRrR I've been wanting this Juicy bag, $195 but hey that's like what I spent on the Fafi collection! and makeup expires

itsliz89 said...

The moment I saw Hilary Duff with the bag I instantly approve! I love Hilary Duff.

Lynnie said...

I agreed with you. I mean...I really admired some designer's bag that I've seen but don't think I'll ever waste money on them. One thousand dollars on one bag? That's just crazy! I can get like ten bags of Guess or other cheaper brands with that amount of money. And I don't think there's a point in getting a bag that expensive since it'll go out of style in the next month or so, so why waste that much money? I rather use that extra money on make-up. haha...

Oh, I usually bring a pen and a small note pad with me too since I like to shop around and compare prices on most of the stuffs that I buy so with the leaving pen marks on your purse thing I think you should get like a small pen/pencil case to keep your pens in.

mizleilei said...

Get the bag! Really, most LV bags go with every outfit! ;) The more classic designs don't go out of style and you can transition the bag from one outfit to the next. If its within your means, go for it, but as with everything to each his/her own!

Xuanie said...

ohh i really like this bag, i believe my aunt just got. i saw this when i was going xmas shopping with the family, and dad was buying everyone their gifts i was thinking about this bag but then i opt for a Micheal by Micheal kors bag. but the bag is really nice!

Elizabeth said...

i have the 25 speed monogram and i must say it can carry HEAPS even though it looks so tiny!!!!

the Damier is nice not many people have that compared to the monogram.

I have this bag, and I don't really love it. I wear jeans a lot and some of the dye gets rubbed onto the bag, making it blue. The sagging of my speedy 30 is horrible. But if you really like it, get it girl!

Chiara said...

Hmmm I approve ;] It's pretty darn cute, Nessa <3. I can definatly see you parading off to work with that smexy little bag. But with a whopping $650, the price is a bit steep. I've been meaning to get a high-end designer bag of my own, but I'd have to wait and save up a bit before I can afford one.

Fei said...

Go for it. $650 is NOT a bad price compared to their other items. LV speedys are big and among the more affordable. My lil sis has the same one you're eyeing and she carries it all the time. To help it retain its shape, you can always line the bottom with something stiff (like a fashion mag you could read when you're bored, or a lightweight piece of cardboard wrapped in tissue paper). I'm joining the speedy club too, as soon as I save up $880 for the red Epi leather one (or keep hinting at Vernon, LOL).

Nic Nic said...

ooo i actually quite like this color!

I believe LV is a hype, i only own one LV, its long strap n small, oblong.. regret buying it, cant fit anything in there. all the prints are the same. However, I really like that Damier Azur color! my mum has the Damier Azur print in a huge tote, its lovely and she got a normal print for speedy 30.

anyways, it would be good to invest in a posh bag :) A speedy is a def classic!

ilurvemakeup said...

I too don't like sporting the same bags, specially when you are walking around the mall and 5 girls you pass by has the same exact bags lol That bag is cute tho, something I like is BIG BAGS!

Ruby said...

Even you fell to the power that is Louis Vuitton.
xD
I'm a LV lover...but sadly I have no money to get everything that I'd like to have...oh well, imagine all the makeup you can buy with that $1000 bucks. xD

Vanessa said...

Thanks ladies! I just might get it! Thanks for your input! :)

Sheila Ferrari said...

Thats hot. I want it too! You'd look so good with that on your arm. haha!

said...

that is definitely a cute bag!! like totally :)

mandilicious said...

oh my gosh..i've been lemming that purse for the longest time..i can't afford it though so i stick to buying Coach purses..they don't cost an arm and a leg like LV and Gucci..maybe just a few fingers..hehehe!

solène said...

My boyfriend bought it for me a month ago & I looooooove it! (i know my boyfriend is such an angel ;)

Keep up the good work girl, your blog is brilliant!

lynn said...

ooh I have this purse. it's cute, but let me tell you...if your afraid of getting a purse that gets dirty too quickly don't get this one. It gets dirty really fast. Just rubbing against your jeans or even an escalator. I'd opt for the dark canvas or even better, leather. It really sucks to get a purse that costs so much only to have it looking dirty after using it a few times.

:a: :b: :c: :d: :e: :f: :g: :h: :i: :j: :k: :l: :m: :n:
