Okay so I have been obsessing over this since I saw it on AndreasChoice Vegas haul but today it has reached a climax... I NEED this bag.
For those who don't know this is the Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Canvas Neverfull
It is SO beautiful. It would be the most expensive bag I've ever purchased by a long way.. I have never spent more than £60 on a bag and I've never seen a designer piece that has called out to me in such a way as this one. It's not ridiculously unaffordable, prices start at £420 for the smallest size, all the way up to £470 for the largest. The model I have my sights on is the medium MM size which retails at £445. Don't get me wrong I am not about to drop £445 without a moments thought.. I would really miss that money if I parted with it! Can I really justify spending that amount of money on a bag I can probably only get good use out of in the summer and would be living in fear of getting something on it?
I have another option of course which is the Damier Ebene.. same prices but it looks like this...
This would be a lot more wearable and definitely more practical for weathering dirt etc but at the end of the day I just don't love it like I do the Azur!
Now my birthday is coming up and I could always ask for it as a part present (I could offer to put towards) making it less of an extravagance and more affordable but then would it be the same? Is it as empowering to part pay for the bag of your dreams? And if I do get it will it live up to my lofty expectations?
So many questions surround the possible purchase of the bag.
I will, as always keep you posted but I am doing my birthday shopping this Friday after what will be a potentially tough week at work so I might feel like I've earned it ;)
And wouldn't it just look amazing in my OOTD posts?
Who am I kidding? I will have to have this bag at some point but it's a lot to fork out in one hit. What do you guys think? I know LV can be a little love/hate, I myself dislike the original LV print intensely and I know that no matter what people will think the bag is a fake.. so... is it worth it?
