Its finally review time, I have faithfully been carrying my Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in monogram canvas for almost 3 months. This is not my first designer bag, but it is my first luxury designer handbag. I wanted this bag so bad, I read reviews, I looked at used ones, I watched every single youtube haul/unboxing/review out there. I just knew this bag was the one for me. And guess what this is the perfect bag. There are pros and cons to having a bag like this, and don’t you worry I will be sharing.
This bag has changed my life, I know that sounds completely insane but its true. Carrying this bag has elevated my style, a simple white tee and skinny jeans looks like a regular run of the mill outfit, add the Neverfull and you are wearing a chic, easy outfit for running errands.
Louis Vuitton is one of the most sought after brands in existence. Because of that fact, a LV bag retains most of its value(especially if your bag is well cared for).
The Neverfull GM literally holds EVERYTHING, I think it can hold up to 200 lbs so you can pack it up and know that the straps will hold.
If you are new to luxury bags like I am, this is bag gives you a lot of bang for your buck, at just over 1200 dollars you get a very large bag AND a small pochette(valued at around 500).
The customer service at LV is unheard of, if you have a problem with your bag contact the company, if you need a repair or a custom strap contact the company. When you purchase a luxury item you are not only buying the bag, but also buying into the customer service that goes with it.
Final pro? Its freaking beautiful, the leather is supple and soft and the canvas is so durable.
The leather is raw, so it is open to the elements(including your hands, weather, and just the air) that does mean as the bag ages the leather turns a beautiful honey brown. BUT if you spill anything on the leather, or it rains and you get the leather wet, or you lotion your hands and touch the handles. IT STAINS THE LEATHER. Which is my worst nightmare.
Because of the natural materials used in the bag, it can hold smells, take it into a steak restaurant? Guess what smells like steak the next day.
Once you own one LV bag you want to own more than one. They are addicting, I currently have my eye on the Josephine wallet. 🙂
Love the shape but not the price tag? Here are some options for you. 🙂
P.S. My bag was made in the USA 🙂
