I'm considering buying it pre-owned as i always loved them but as a gift for my mom (we share purses). My questions are A) does the bag look too outdated? I dont want to look "so 2003" haha. And B) could a woman in her 50's also use it or is it too youthful?

I doesn't look dated to me. It does look young.

Not so much as outdated...as kind of trashy. Vutton (and Gucci) are no longer considered as classy brands. How about a Longchamp bag instead?

I don't think it looks trashy, but it does look a bit dated to me, yeah. Not that there's anything wrong with it. I say if you like it, go with it! Good to get it used - I sure wouldn't pay that price for that bag, holy crap.

I thought the logo days were over. No?

Everyone just assumes they are fake.

If it's a gift for your mother, buy the purse SHE will love. Not the purse you've always loved. Buy your own.

I am in my 40's and I wouldn't carry it. It looks teenager. Also, somewhat dated and just kind of ugly. I hate logo stuff.

To me, it looks dated and is far from classy. But it's me.

I love it, in fact i'd jump up and down for joy to receive it as a gift, however i'm a bit younger at 30. I buy only logo stuff, leather bags seems to old lady for me, and just too plain and blah. I'm more of a bright, and colorful person anyway so I love it. Louis Vuitton bags never go out of style, and they are a good investment piece in my opinion. If you take care of them, they can last for many years. It's awfully small to use as a everyday bag isn't it? I have the mono pochette, and it's more of a larger wristlet size. If she don't carry much, it would be good, but if she likes larger bags, i'd go for something else. I will say for someone who is 50, i'd probably aim for something a little less colorful and fun, unless she likes that kind of stuff like I do. Only you know what she likes, if you think she would dig it, go for it.
