What’s in my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM + Review

I’ve carried this bag for nearly a year and a half so I think it’s time to share my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM review. Keep reading to see my pros and cons, what I keep inside my LV Neverfull, and tips to keep it organized.

Tim gifted me the Louis Vuitton Neverfull when I graduated with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy and I’ve carried it ever since. I call it my bag “hub” because when I switch into other bags I just pull from it what I need or will fit. I carry it to work every day (unless I expect a ton of rain – more on that later) and when I travel. This post will probably be a long one, but instead of splitting it into multiple posts I figured it would be best to keep all the information on the LV Neverfull in one place.

What’s inside my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM

Some basics I keep inside: my wallet, planner, business cards, mini notebook, and phone. How do I keep such a large tote bag organized?? Pouches are going to be your friend. Instead of having everything mixed together, I use various makeup bags and small clutches so I know where to start looking for something. You can also buy an organizer, but I’ve found what I already have to be useful. The bag comes with a skinny clutch, and inside I like to keep my checkbook and any recent receipts. Side note: I don’t even know why I keep a checkbook in there, I never use them!

I have a small makeup pouch to keep the various lip products I use, bobby pins, some powder for touch-ups, and fashion tape (you never know when you’ll need this!).  I also always keep a hairbrush on hand because my fine hair loves to get tangled and I preferred a polished vs messy look. This one from Target is my favorite.

In a larger clutch, I put anything else that isn’t makeup or something large enough to hang out on its own. These are the random necessities I think I must have with me: Zicam (a must if you live in the south), sunscreen, hand cream, moist wipes, gum, and headphones. These headphones (gifted from Studio Sweden ) are the perfect size to keep with you in your bag, not to mention they are white and rose gold (heart eyes!).  I throw these on during my lunch to catch up on Instagram stories, etc. Don’t worry, if you have small ears they come with a bunch of different sized buds to fit your ears. I have a 15% off code for y’all if you’re interested, just enter STRAWBERRYCHICXO at checkout (and guess what, it never expires!) Also, there’s no kickback to me if you use this code or anything.

 

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Review: Pros

It Really is Neverfull

I’ve never had an issue fitting anything and everything I’ve needed inside this bag. It will carry my laptop and charger, some magazines or a book, my lunch, extra flats for when my feet hurt…etc! That’s the main perk of this bag, hence the name.

Easy to See Into

Pretty self-explanatory, but I love how open this bag gets so I can easily find what I’m looking for.

Expandable

Most girls I see carrying this bag keep the sides open, but I do also like the look of it with the sides cinched in.

Lightweight

Without anything inside the bag is relatively lightweight in comparison to my other bags. However, it can also carry a lot more so it can get heavy depending on what you put inside it.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Review: Cons

It Will Can Get Heavy

I’ve learned the hard way that this bag will definitely get heavy on your shoulder, which is why I typically switch into a cross body bag when I go shopping because when you add shopping bags into the mix your shoulder will get really uncomfortable. If I do carry it shopping or running errands, I try to unload some of the unnecessary things that’s added up inside it throughout the work week. I think the main reason for shoulder pain is because of the thin straps.

Not Weather Proof

This bag is meant to be carried for years and years, so I personally like the lived in strap look. However, if I expect a lot of rain I typically don’t carry it because I don’t want spotted raindrops to stain the straps. If I happen to get caught in the weather, I try to tuck in the straps and drape something over the bag to protect them. The canvas material, however, is perfect for a rainy day, so I don’t have to worry about this part of the bag. Also, since the bag is open rain will fall into your belongings, so just think about that on rainy days. If this is a huge negative to you, consider getting the Damier Ebene and this won’t be an issue.

Extra Organization is a Must

I definitely recommend getting extra storage to keep your belongings organized inside. I’ve seen storage compartments made for the bag, but as you can see I use cute pouches to keep mine organized.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tips:

I keep the dust bag folded up along the bottom of my bag to keep the lining looking clean and new.

Supposedly the straps can hold up to 200 pounds (I wouldn’t want to know).

Wipe it clean with an alcohol-free wipe or use soap and water to remove stains. Ask a LV specialist on cleaning pen ink.

Just an FYI:  When you first buy the Louis Vuitton Neverfull the leather straps will stay upright, but this won’t last for very long. I wanted to point that out because some people only want structured bags.

 

I know this is a long-winded post, so thanks for making it this far with me! I hope you found my Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Review helpful if you are researching the big purchase. If you’re curious about my other designer handbag reviews, I shared my thoughts on the Gucci Soho Disco Bag in this post.

  1. that bag is AWESOME! But I just cant have a bag that big, or I'll just throw everything in there and forget about it and then I'll be carrying around 50 pounds of stuff when I only really just need my wallet, keys, phone and lipstick ^^

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!
