Handbags can be timeless and I love these vintage paparazzi shots of Audrey Hepburn carrying her Louis Vuitton Speedy bag. The bag launched back in 1930 and in 1965 Audrey Hepburn asked Henri-Louis Vuitton to make a smaller sized Speedy bag so the Speedy 25 came about. One of my New Year vows is to use more of what I have in my closet so I'm going to try to bring this bag I've had for 8 years back into rotation. Prices have gone up a since I first bought this bag so it's definitely a great investment.
Pick up a Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 ($665) for a compact style or the larger Speedy 30 ($690) that is slightly larger and can hold more things. With top handle bags in fashion and ladylike looks coming back, this is the perfect accessory to wear dressed up or casual.
I also love how the classic bag shape looks in the Damier Ebene Canvas. Looks super cute in the Speedy 25 size!
Modern starlets like Ashley Olsen, Avril Lavigne and Jennifer Love Hewitt have brought them back into the spotlight.
