Lucy's Review:

Below are pictures of my LV Mono Speedy Bandouliere 25 from Joy. I love the style of the bag...classic speedy with the benefit of a shoulder strap that can be worn crossbody. What's not to love? I chose to buy the smaller size, 25, because I planned on wearing it as a crossbody mostly, and I thought a 30 would be too bulky. I can fit all my essentials just fine...and I think it looks really cute on (yes I will add modeling shots of all of my bags...soon...gotta clean the mirrors first Cool ). I like that I can use the shoulder strap with other bags...I can add it to my Tivoli PM, Delightful PM, Lockit, Speedy 30. I have tried it with the pochette, but I think the strap is a little too wide for it.

I was a little disappointed with the quality... particularly the piping. It tends to cave in on itself?? And the bag does not stand straight like it should. I have stored it stuffed to try and correct this....it is a little better than when I first received it, but not great. The color of the canvas is fine...no issues there. The handle placement on one side is off. One side of the handle is attached a little higher than the other on one side. Where the shoulder strap attaches, I think it's placed too low. I think that on the authentic bag, you would have to pull the D Ring down in order to see the stamped "25". On this one, the D ring attachment for the strap is placed below the number. Please correct me if I am wrong about the placement on the authentic bag.

The color of the hardware is mismatched...it is a dull brass on the bag itself, and bright and shiny on the shoulder strap. I think this is true of the authentic too, so this does not bother me.
The stitching on the underside of the strap is pretty bad. One of the leather pieces that hold the end of the strap (? not sure what to call this piece) is about to come apart because it was not stitched tightly. And the strap is not straight, even though I have hung it from doors with the purse weighted to try and straighten it out.


The stitching could be neater...but it's not horrible. If you are close enough to my bag to see the stitching, then there are bigger issues at hand anyway, right ? Shocked
Overall...I like the bag, and I carry it. I love the style and being able to have the bag secure and be hands free at the same time.

  2. Where the stamped 25 is...it should be just above the D-ring for the straps, it's placed too high and it's all on the Bandouliere of from Joy and it seems like one of the major complaints for the Bandouliere from Joy is the un-even placement of handles apart from that still a good replica.
