A long time in the making
In 2017, I read a book named I want to be her, that charts a woman's style inspiration from various individuals from childhood to present. One of the descriptions inspired an idea in me.
I'm not someone who collects designer items. I just live pretty things and the majority of my higher end bags were purchased because of their colour, or if they had a flamingo or penguin motif.
I decided I wanted a Louis Vuitton speedy 25 but I had very strict standards and budget.
It had to be vintage
No significant wear on handles and corners.
I spent two years considering the purchase because it's a lot of money. I have read numerous articles and watched various YouTube videos on advice and guidance to find a genuine bag.
I have spent hours on eBay and various designer consignment accounts and Preloved seller websites.
One evening earlier this month I found her!
She's American made from 1992 and had everything I wanted. She's from Japan.
From purchase to delivery was 3 days.
I am truly in love with everything about the bag and I am excited to wear it out when out of lockdown
