Louis Vuitton Graceful MM Review

Louis Vuitton Graceful 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 Graceful MM.  Isn’t she lovely?!

The Louis Vuitton Graceful 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 shoulder strap converts the Graceful into a crossbody bag.  Let me tell you, that added shoulder strap is a GAME CHANGER.  I will also use it on my Speedy 25, which will maybe make me like it more.

Watch me unbox my new purse and then hear my full review in the video below.

Why I Love This Bag


After I filmed this video, I flew from Los Angeles to Ohio using my Graceful as a travel bag.  It fit everything that both Kenny and I needed..  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.

    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!

    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!

    • October 14, 2019 / 8:57 AM

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

    • January 4, 2020 / 6:40 PM

      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?

        • January 8, 2020 / 11:45 AM

          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. 🙂

    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!

    • October 14, 2019 / 8:59 AM

      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!!

    • October 14, 2019 / 9:04 AM

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

    • January 4, 2020 / 6:41 PM

      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?

    • October 29, 2019 / 8:20 AM

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

    • January 4, 2020 / 6:43 PM

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

    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!

    • November 20, 2019 / 8:03 PM

      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.

    • January 4, 2020 / 6:43 PM

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

    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

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

    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.

    • January 4, 2020 / 6:55 PM

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

    Do you prefer this to the neverfull?

        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?

        • January 14, 2020 / 1:31 PM

          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. 🙂

        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?

        • May 4, 2020 / 10:55 AM

          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?

    • February 26, 2020 / 1:48 PM

      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.

    • March 2, 2020 / 9:28 AM

      Yay!! I hope you love it as much as I do!

    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!

    • April 6, 2020 / 4:38 PM

      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.

      • Paige
        April 8, 2020 / 9:58 AM

        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!!

    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😊

    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.
