Louis Vuitton Graceful MM Review

Louis Vuitton Graceful MM Review

For Mother’s Day this year, Matt took me on a shopping trip to the Louis Vuitton store in Beverly Hills and let me pick out my new favorite handbag, the Louis Vuitton Graceful MM. 

Isn’t she purty?!?

The Louis Vuitton Graceful MM is around the same size as the LV Neverfull MM. 

I also purchased an adjustable shoulder strap, the VVN strap, for myself that trip. 

The new VVN shoulder strap converts the Graceful into a crossbody bag…  Which I la la LOVE!

Let me tell you, that added shoulder strap is a GAME CHANGER

I will also use the VVN shoulder strap on my Speedy 25, which will maybe make me like it more.??‍♀️

Frequently, I receive emails and direct messages regarding the VVN strap for the Graceful MM.  I think it’s because the Graceful MM is comparable in size to the Neverfull but adding a strap makes it so much more functional.

Watch the video below to see me unbox my new purse and then hear my full review.  I’m sharing every single detail about this beautiful Louis Vuitton Graceful MM handbag.

Why I Love This Bag

After I filmed this video, I flew from Los Angeles to Ohio using my Graceful MM as a travel bag. 

The Graceful MM fit everything that both Kenny and I needed, so no need for an extra diaper bag.

The extra strap I purchased made a huge difference, especially while carrying a baby on my hip. 

The size is so functional, y’all.  Truly the perfect travel bag.

Here are a couple photos from my Instagram showing how I styled my new bag.

I get questions constantly about wearing my Graceful MM crossbody. 
Here’s a photo with my Graceful MM worn crossbody.


My first LV purchase was a used Speedy bag and it’s easily my least favorite and least used bag that I own.

If you’re going to invest in a designer bag, be sure to wait till you can buy the bag you really want.  I got in a hurry and bought the first bag I could afford and have never loved it.

In fact, I need to just sell my Speedy 25 because it’s doing nothing but gathering dust in my closet.

I think that a lot of women end up doing the same thing.

So I gotta know…

Are you a Louis Vuitton owner?

If so, which bag do you have?  Do you love it?

Spill the beans below and share all about your LV experience with me in the comments section.

Do you prefer the Graceful MM or the Neverfull?

For a diaper bag, I definitely prefer the Neverfull. For every day, I prefer the Graceful MM.

Do you like the interior of the Graceful MM?

I do. It’s nice that I can use my ToteSavvy divider in my Neverfull, because I love all of the different compartments, but I don’t miss that with the Graceful MM for some reason.

Do you recommend adding the strap to the Graceful MM to convert to a crossbody bag?

Yes. 100%. Get the strap!

  • ??, just had to let you know your reveal/review of the LV Graceful MM was so great that I had to buy it❣️ I should be getting it tomorrow ? Thanks for your blog, I think you’re FANTASTIC ?

  • I’ve always wanted a LV bag but never knew what to buy..thanks for your pics and update! 🙂

    • Angela Lanter

      I hope you find your dream bag!

      • I just got Graceful Mm. I actually went to buy Neverfull but fell in love with graceful at the store. Everywhere I go and even online, I see neverfull is more popular.

        My question- how is graceful holding up after using it for few years. Is it too soft that It forms a structure in the center and dupes down. Please advise.

        • I just ordered my Graceful MM and am so excited. However, I’m worried about how it holds up since it’s a hobo bag. Have you found it to crease since it isn’t as stiff as the Never Full?

          • Angela Lanter

            Mine hasn’t creased at all!

  • Linda M Cantrell

    Have you tried putting the LV key charm on your Graceful? Do you think it would work or would it be overkill with the luggage tag?

    Love your videos and reviews. You do an awesome job!

  • Courtney

    Hi Angela! Thanks for sharing. I just ordered my Graceful – first LV purchase. Wondering if you can share which strap you purchased. I want to make it a crossbody too!

    • Angela Lanter

      Yay!! How do you like it?!
      I’m not sure which strap I have, I sadly can’t find my receipt!

    • Angela Lanter

      I finally found out! It’s the VVN Shoulder Strap!

      • Hey I’m looking for a strap as well. So the VVN shoulder strap is long enough to use as a crossbody?

        • Angela Lanter

          Hi Shelby! I went into LV in Cleveland after Christmas with my bag and they said it’s definitely the VVN that I’m using as my crossbody strap. 🙂

  • Amorita Berry

    Hello Angela! I was wondering the same about the strap. Graceful MM is going to be my next purchase but would like to know which strap you added on? Is it an Mkraft? I would really appreciate you sharing. Thank you!

    • Angela Lanter

      I actually don’t know which strap I have, I can’t find my receipt!

  • Ditto above comments – would love to know exactly which strap that you purchased. I have a Delightful MM and can’t seem to find the “right” crossbody strap for it. Please share details. Thanks!!

    • Angela Lanter

      Shoot! I can’t find my receipt to know which strap I have!

    • Angela Lanter

      Hey Carol! It’s the VVN shoulder strap. 🙂

  • I just bought the Graceful MM in NYC this weekend and also was looking for a strap to make it a crossbody now that I have it home…and I too, was wondering what strap you have 🙁 Didn’t they email you a receipt? Or take your info so you are in the system? They did for me.. Maybe they will have the info on the strap you purchased?

    • Angela Lanter

      I checked my email and couldn’t find the receipt! I’ll look through my boxes and see if I can find it!

    • Angela Lanter

      Hey Michele! I finally found out it’s the VVN shoulder strap!

  • Pui Reeves

    Hi, wondering if you have problems with the shoulder strap sliding off? I’ve been debating on the DE or the one you purchased. Not sure if the DE strap makes it more slippery or if the slipping off the shoulder is just a general problem 🙂 Thanks!

    • Angela Lanter

      I haven’t had problems with the shoulder strap at all!

  • Hi I was thinking about purchasing this bag but was wondering if the strap is so short you feel like the bags up in your arm pit (lol if that makes sense) that’s my only concern that the strap is a tad shorter than a neverfull.

    • Angela Lanter

      A little bit, that’s why I added the shoulder strap. 🙂

  • marianne

    Had the same question about the strap. Maybe you could share pics and measurements Length width etc so we could find brand?? Where to purchase? Love it tyty

    • Angela Lanter

      I purchased at Louis Vuitton but can’t find my receipt!

  • Hi! What is the organizer insert that you put in your bags? Where do i get it? Thank you! I enjoy your posts very much!

  • Rochelle

    Hi, Angela!

    Happy 2020! I am so glad you did this review. A close friend made me second guess my purchase of the Graceful MM in mono, indicating that the print was outdated and tacky. When I saw someone as classy as you with it, I knew I’d made the right decision!!! My bag is scheduled to arrive on Jan 7th. ? Did you ever figure out which strap you have? There are two on the website. Also- I agree with you about the Dermier (in dark brown). I don’t like it.

    • Angela Lanter

      I LOVE this bag, you made a great choice!! I have the VVN strap. 🙂

  • Rochelle


  • Do you prefer this to the neverfull?

    • Angela Lanter

      I do for everyday use!

      • Thanks! I was debating between neverfull gm or the graceful mm. Definitely need an everyday bag! Now between monogram vs damier ebene! When do you use neverfull?

        • Angela Lanter

          I use the Neverfull primarily when traveling or as a diaper bag. Sometimes I carry it for everyday use when I just want a lighter colored baf. 🙂

  • Do you have pictures carried crossbody? Thank you!

    • Angela Lanter

      All photos are in this blog post. 🙂

      • Hi!! I love your reviews on your bags! I don’t know what bag I should get, it’s between the neverfull and the graceful. Do you have a favourite between both?

        • Angela Lanter

          I prefer the Neveerfull if you have kids or want to use as a diaper bag. Graceful is my preference otherwise. 🙂

  • Im still not sure which size to buy; the PM or MM. Do you have any pictures to show the difference while using/wearing the different sizes?

    • Angela Lanter

      I only own the MM. I don’t have a PM to show.

  • I have been going back and forth over whether to buy a neverfull GM for months… Something was holding me back.
    I only carry totes, I like big bags; in fact, I’ve carried the same beautifully worn leather tote religiously for 21 years.
    It just seems like EVERYONE has a neverfull though, ya know? And the straps… are so… skinny?
    Then I saw one photo of you holding the graceful with the strap and I said “holy s**t, there’s my bag” ordered 5 mins later…thank you. Lol.

  • Hi! Thank you so much for your review! I am debating between the Never full mm and the graceful mm. I would order the graceful in a heartbeat (I think I like this style a little better for me) except I have a toddler and use a large tote now as a diaper bag and wanted something to store his things effectively in my next purse as well. I’m worried I won’t be able to get to things as easily with the graceful. I’m really torn! Would you say the graceful still works to keep snacks and a couple other toddler/kid essentials? Are things really hard to get to, or not really? If/when I have another baby, I would probably just use a diaper bag in addition to my purse because newborns just have too much gear not to have a separate bag for them IMO. So I’m thinking about the graceful more for those toddler/kid years once they don’t take bottles anymore. How do you like it for holding essential items for your little? Sorry for the long post! Thank you so much in advance!

    • Angela Lanter

      Hey Paige! Hmmm… The Nevefull makes for a great diaper bag with an insert. The Graceful is more of a mommy meets diaper bag, so definitely not going to stay as organized.

      • Thank you, Angela! I agree, I’m sure the graceful wouldn’t stay as organized but I do love it! I guess I’ll have to decide which one is more important to me. Thanks again!!

  • Love this bag on you!! Have you had any issues with the corners wearing?

  • Hi
    Do you have any issues with the corners of the bag? I like it very much but i have read in purse forum that the cancas is very soft and there are a lot of corner issues
    Thank you?

  • Bettyjoe

    Hi! Love your blog. I’m making my first LV purchase and have decided on the Graceful for sure. My biggest decision is MM or PM. I have older kids so don’t need to carry anything for them, just an everyday bag. Do you think the MM is huge or a good size for everyday regular use? I love the MM in your photos.

  • I love graceful mono but heard lots of. corner tearing issues.
    Plz update with wear and tear so far

  • Becky Smith

    The Graceful PM is actually under the Christmas tree. I’m so excited, as this is my first Louis Vuitton bag. Definitely will look into getting the strap now, to turn it into a cross body bag.

    • Angela Lanter

      YAY!! So excited for you!

      • Hi Angela. I have the Graceful and want to get the crossbody strap but I read that the VVN is hard to get on the Graceful D ring. Did you find that problem? I don’t want the metal to get all scratched up. But I do an on leaving it on there once I add it. Love your blog. Lisa

  • HI! I just received the Graceful MM from my husband. I was wondering what size tote savvy you fit in yours?

    • Angela Lanter

      Hey Jennie! I’m not sure what size it was. I messaged them and asked which one would fit best. I’m sure if you DM them on IG they can help!

  • Hi Angela! Thanks for yiur review. I’m just curious if you can use the graceful mm carrying few clothes for a 3-day trip.

    • Angela Lanter

      I don’t know that I would be able to! HAHA! I take too much stuff!

  • They now only sell a small 0.6” vvn strap! I don’t know if that would work as well with this. What is your strap? It looks perfect!!
