Hello my fellow fashion savvy women!
Once upon a time, I didn’t even know what Louis Vuitton was until my husband introduced me to one of his female friends bet he’s regretting that!
Next thing you know we are on our belated wedding honeymoon spending 7 weeks around Europe and USA. My wonderful husband planned it so we landed in Paris on my 26th Birthday yes I know I’m lucky! (so is he!).
Our mutual friend had been teaching me all things Louis Vuitton so when I went shopping in the LV store on Avenue Montaigne I was well versed in all things Louis Vuitton.
Picture this: Pouring rain and I’m soaking wet before I enter the store. I look like a bit of bum so no one would acknowledge me! 15 minutes later I finally got the sales ladies attention where I asked for a Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 with the strap. She snidely replied, “You American’s with all your bells and whistles, you don’t need the strap”. I replied, "I’m not American and I want the strap it makes it easier to carry”. So off she went and brought back my bag.
I picked it up and went to the mirror and put the strap over my shoulder. It was perfect in every way. I turned to the sales lady and said “I’ll take it!” to which she replied, "Would you like some Champagne?”…
We went through the label engraving, size of my initials and all that stuff. And whilst she was busy organising my bag I keep drinking my Champagne and shopping!
Then I spotted the Speedy 25 sitting on the shelve ‘Wouldn’t that be perfect to go with my luggage bag I thought?’
Hubby noticed me eyeing it off and asked the sales lady to show me the bag. So off I went to the mirror again to investigate how it looks. Needless to say, I had another drink and ended up with 2 bags.
I’ve now owned them for over 10 years and they’re still are in fantastic condition.
When you're wanting something that will stand the test of time then Louis Vuitton monogram bags are very durable. I have taken my Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 to most of these destinations click here. This bag has been dragged through so many airports, been throw in overhead storage on planes and trains and been shoved in cars whilst driving on weekend getaways. This bag has travelled more than most people I’ve known and she still keeps going.
The same goes for my Speedy which has also been used and abused and still she keeps going! Talk about durable bags! They have been worth their weight in gold. That’s why I love my ‘twins’ who look so good together. They get me around the globe looking stylish wherever I go.
Here I’m at my hairdresser in Singapore don’t I just look fabulous with all those foils in my hair? And below I’m in London Heathrow airport about to board the train to Paddington station.
You will see these bags in up and coming posts and if you follow my C32 Globetrotter blog then you would have seen my LV Keepall. She’s normally in a photo or two because she likes to be seen on her globetrotting adventures as well!
Until next time Live style. Live spirit. Live soul. This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
