The Louis Vuitton Speedy is probably the most bought and the most loved bag Louis Vuitton ever made. It's been such a staple and classic piece for a ridiculous amount of years now and we can't imagine LV without the Speedy, right? The Speedy was actually the first handbag Louis Vuitton ever created so it's such an important part of the Louis Vuitton history. Inspired after the 'Keepall', the Speedy was the first handbag created for everyday use. Did you know that the Speedy in size 25 was created for Audrey Hepburn in 1965?
Why you should get the #Speedy:
There are actually so many reasons why you should get the Louis Vuitton Speedy but today I'm here to tell you my personal Top5 reasons why everyone should own a Speedy. It was the first LV bag I ever bought and after years of using it as my every day bag I thought it's finally time to tell you my thoughts about it.

Yes. You can actually buy bags for investment. If you've read my Alma BB Review then you know what I'm talking about (you can check the article HERE). When you're a luxury designer lover and handbag collector you're probably having a ridiculous amount of money in your closet. Since those classic pieces are basically never going out of trend you can always re-sell them for a great price. They're not loosing their value at all, they most likely even double it. And that's the point! I can still remember the price when I first wanted the Speedy35 which was 420€ at that time (over six years ago). When I bought it, the price situation was already at 725€ which is cra-zeeey. And today, the retail price of the LV Speedy35 is 775€.

If there is one handbag for everyday use that fits all a woman need and more... It has to be the Speedy. It doesn't even matter what size you're choosing 'cause even the size 30 fits a crazy amount of stuff. I'm always surprised how much one of my girlfriend can fit in her Speedy30. She even manage to put her sneakers in there besides her full size wallet, keys, make-up... Oh, and to not forget about her Ugg's. Yes, you heard right. One time she managed to fit her Ugg Boots in the Speedy30 with all the other stuff. Nothing more to say, huh?

I can't say it enough but Louis Vuitton bags are great in terms of quality. This bag has gone through so much with me and still looks kind of brand new, don't you think so? I'm always using it as my travel bag which is definitely not an easy thing for a bag because I have to admit that I'm not really careful with my bags and for that, I mean, look at her... It speaks for itself. They're basically indestructible.

Not saying that they are a bargain and not expensive at all, but in a world full of Chanel bags where the classic flap bag costs over 4.000€ (!!!)- the Speedy Is one of the most affordable ones out there even though the price is going up twice a year.

If you are going for the size 30 you can rock this bag for any occasion you can possibly think of. Casual for everyday use, elegant for a dinner night, all dressed up for clubbing, in your sweats for traveling... and the list goes on! If there is one thing I might regret a little sometimes, it's that I got the 35 instead of the 30. Don't get me wrong I'm in love with my Speedy but when it comes to elegant evening occasions, the 35 is a little too big in my opinion. Nevertheless, I am more than happy with her and can't think about a better bag for everyday use.
