** Updates **
Yeah, sent my bag to the LV store last weekend and they said the torn piping is very common and it can be fixed at a "reasonable" cost--$115 each side. They would even repair it for F.R.E.E if your LV broke less than a year after purchasing it. Guess what, the sales person suggested me to use my Speedy for a while more longer before sending it for the piping repair since the damaged area does not seem too severe. How thoughtful! Love LV attentive & awesome customer service as always; LV bags are still worth investing on after all ^_____^V
"Bao Bei, your Speedy is worn! Oh, the piping is coming out!"
"Ahhhh... Where got?"
"How come? I cannot accept this (T_____T)"
#1 Monogram Speedy 30, it's my first real designer handbag, the first member of my LV collection (I only have a few); Chean got it for me on my birthday and I have been using it as a everyday bag since then.
You have seen me carrying it everywhere, shopping, dining, traveling, even picking up grocery; it's just super versatile, beyond classic and I still enjoy carrying it around till this day. I love all my bags, high-end or low-end, designers or bargains, each of them has a story to tell, they mark unique journey of my life and each of them shares different responsibilities too.
It's my fault. I do not take good care of them. I simply toss them around the house or leave it on the floor, jeez, I even let Miyaki sleep on them sometimes... Sigh... I wish I could turn back time and reverse the damages I have caused to my Speedy.
#2 My heart is aching & bleeding...
#3 Can't look at it anymore (T^T)
To be frankly, I cried a little. Mum-to-be has the definite right to be emo & to cry over small little things can. This bag means a lot to me, and I was planning to pass down my Speedy to my BB when she turns 16 or whenever she feels like having it, but this whole fantasy of mine seems hopeless now. And it's all because of my carelessness.
#4 R.I.P for now...
I'm gonna bring it to the LV store and ask for help, hope they could get it fix at a reasonable price. Wish me luck people! *keeping my fingers crossed*
Upset & down,
