Style SOS: LV Bag Lady

Need your help. I waited this long to get my first LV bag. I'm preparing to buy it in HK since it is a whole lot cheaper there than here in the PI since we have luxury tax.

I would like to ask your help on the best style for me. I'm 37, working in marketing, mostly into black, greys and brown.

I shun away from mainstream styles but I want a functional one I can love and be proud of without being to loud.

Please help! Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your question LV Dreamer! I'm so excited for you! I love shopping for bags so thanks for having me in on the fun! Ok, here goes my assessment. You have a taste for low key luxe, meaning you shun anything that declares to the world how expensive your bag is. You like muted colors, ok fine, neutrals but that doesn't mean your taste for bags has to blend in with the rest. Since you are in marketing, you work in a fast-paced, exciting environment but still have to look professional. Right?

That being said, I agree with reader baglove and would like to suggest that you look into Louis Vuitton's Epi Leather collection. I particularly recommend the Bowling Montaigne and Passy styles! These are very funtional, can go from work to weekend and are classics that will see you through the years, or your next purchase at least! ;-) (I've included eLuxury prices for your reference as well!)

The LV epi line is a good choice! I like the epi bowling montaigne (with a zippered top and good size).

For functionality, I like the totes, e.g. Neverfull or Hampstead.

Damier Azur Saleya :) So pretty and functional.

If you don't want to be mainstream, stay away from the Speedy Monogram. Hahaha. I see it in the malls all the time (but it is very roomy!). You can opt for the Speedy Damier/Damier Azul.

Thanks!

I have been using my neverfull mm for several months now and out of all my lv bags, it is my favorite because I can easily find what I am looking for and it can carry even my papers and books.

get a neverfull nalang :) mm size (the pm is too small and the gm is a bit big already)
