Ahhh bag reviews, possibly one of my favorites thing in life to talk about. Not only do bags make an outfit complete but they make my heart whole and my smile huge.
Louis vuitton is pretty much the most known lux bag brand out there. Yes every one and there mother has one but these bags are just plain iconic. Damier ebene otherwise known as their brown on dark brown checked canvas is my absolute favorite. For several reasons…
- It isnt over used. Most people buy the original “LV” monogram canvas, but because I like to be different…
- The leather of damier ebene bags is treated. Meaning it is pre colored and doest have to take time to patina.
- It goes with so much and looks so classy, might I add it matches my hair and my eyes🙈💋👀
- THE INSIDE IS RED! It’s absolutely phenomenal!… I like to leave it unzipped for that particular reason.
- The gold hardware is very classy and luxury looking. I prefer silver when it comes to jewelry but bags… The hardware on my bags has to be gold, did I mention how mixing metals is totally fine and very beautiful when trying to add to your “luxury factor”!
Bottom line is I absolutely adore this bag. The speedy its self is iconic due to its large size, it is both classy looking with the top handle but also very effortless due to it having like the least bit of structure whatsoever… Hahaha
I am not really the type of person who just throws stuff in my bag but this is totally one of those bags. There is only one pocket but its not very large. I mostly keep gum in it..(you know so it doesn’t get lost in the pits of my bag.)
I have had this baby for 4 years now and it still looks and feels brand new! For real if you want one You need to go on Tradesy!! My mother and I have gotten so many lux bags (and shoes) on there and they have all been so tremendously perfect!!
The versatility of this bag is awesome, just by looking at it you may think oh yeah a top handle okay. But NO. This can be worn so many ways especially when you have straps like I do!
- It can be worn as a classy top handle, and hold it low, looks effortless!
- You can wear it on your arm (in where your elbow bends). This looks outrageously chic!
- You can attach a crossbody or shoulder strap! (My fave way) just dont over flow it or it will look slouchy.): btw I use the strap that came with my Damier Ebene Caissa tote pm bag!!! The strap size is perfect to put over the shoulder!!^^^ pictured above!👀👠
- I never lock it. It comes with a lock and key but I never use it. I leave the lock on there but the key I just leave with the rest of my keys (a ton of their bags come with keys)
- I recieved the luggage tag seperatly the Christmas after I got the bag. My mom got it in gold too to match the gold hardware 😍😍😍🙈
- This bag makes me feel like a million bucks, not quite how an Hermes kelly bag would make one feel (#maybesomeday) but when I put it on I feel so darn unstoppable and cute(,: !
I am 5 ‘6/ 5’ 6 1/2 normal sized and to me the speedy 30 is perfect. My mom used to have it in the 35 , she is 5’9 1/2 and it seemed perfect for her. Buuuut at the same time my brother girlfriend has a 35 and she is very very petite and it looks absolutely adorable on her given the size of her. So it really doesnt matter what size you get but I do have to say that 30 or 35 is the way to go because in my opinion the 25 is just waaay too small. Haha the 35 feels too big for me, and the 30 is…… Hahaha
I dont think I have anything else to add. This type of bag is wonderful, no matter what canvas you get it in… I highly reccomend it, it will NEVER go out of style plus you can find these as cheap as $300 on the internet, which I think is great! Plus who doesnt love a vintage bag?!?
Until next time… Xxo Rae😘
