For as long as I knew of its existence, I wanted a Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag. At first, I dropped little hints to my mom whenever I could to let her know of my greatest wish. When that didn’t work, I began not-so-subtly begging and pleading. At the time, I already had a small collection of bags–most notably my Dior Saddle Bag–but to me, the Speedy was the holy grail of designer bags. After much convincing, my parents agreed that I could get a Monogram Speedy 25 as my high school graduation gift, and I loved that little bundle of coated canvas like it was my child. I think I used it every day straight for the first year or so that I had it, and I always knew that I would one day own another Speedy.

When I graduated college, I decided to treat myself and purchase a new Speedy bag. My baby was four, and I finally felt ready for a new one. I decided on purchasing the Damier Azur Speedy 30, as it was different enough to justify the purchase beyond just the size upgrade. To me, the Damier Ebene was too similar to my Monogram Speedy since both in the brown family. At the time, I also owned another LV in Damier Ebene and was excited to add a Damier Azur style to my collection.

As an owner of both the Speedy 25 and the Speedy 30, I can hands-down say that every girl who loves bags must own a Speedy. It’s just a given! Not to mention, the brand is consistently releasing styles that reinvent the Speedy, making it feel new again. It’s such an easy style to wear, there are size options for everyone and it truly is iconic. I can definitely see myself owning a third Speedy when the options are just so darn good! Check out some of my top picks below, or shop pre-loved styles via Farfetch and Shopbop.
