LV Mirage Noir Speedy (30) by C
The following bag review is by the sweet C. Thank you for sharing with everyone.
Mirage Noir Speedy (30)
This is a gorgeous Speedy Noir from Joy. I purchased this about a year ago and its really an eye catcher. The monogram canvas changes color depending on the lighting its mesmerizing!!! I have seen one IRL but it was on display so I didn't get to actually inspect it, but for a fraction of the cost, its real to me! The exterior stitching is amazing, however, the interior pocket which should be under the heat stamp had to be removed b/c the stitching became loose (probably from me trying to read the date code). Also, you can tell from the photos that the underside of the handles are wrinkled. I don't know if this is normal but I have an authentic Epi Black Speedy 25 and there isn't this much wrinkle.
It is the size of a 30 speedy so you can fit a lot into it. Unlike a monogram speedy, the bottom holds its shape much better and the canvas is sturdier (not buttery). The interior suede material is soft to touch but not cheap feeling. The lock that came with it was a bit flimsy but I replaced it with an authentic one and added an authentic bordeaux bandeau to polish her off. I'm tempted to get the bordeaux one since its currently on sale:P
