I ordered this bag for a friend so I'm not sure if she will want to keep it or not since it is the wrong size. If she doesn't want it I will gladly take it off her hands :). I've wanted the Estrella MM for some time but didn't order because I thought it would be too big. The pictures on Joys site looks HUGE but it's actually the perfect size for me!
I do feel bad for Kathy because we waited almost a month for this order. I placed the order on July 2nd but there were several issues with items being out of stock after payment was sent so that is why it took so long for these to get here.
I think the problem with stock checks are mostly because Joy has to rely on her staff to get the info from the factory. She's like the 3rd person in between 4 people (customer, Joy, staff & factory) so info can get mixed up along the way.
Anyway, my order was for 5 bags and today I got 3 but this video is only for the Estrella.
I've only looked at it briefly but other than a few minor issues the bag is quite lovely. Great job Joy!
UPDATE: I just saw pictures of the authentic version of this bag on TPF, Malleries and the Louis Vuitton website. The monograms DO NOT line up on the bottom or sides either :). The bottom alignment on Joy's bag is actually slightly better than the authentic pics I saw.
This is why I think some buyers are being a bit unfair to expect a replica to line up when even the authentic doesn't.
Here's the link to to Malleries and check it out on the LV website too!
