Louis Vuitton Loving

Louis Vuitton seems to be one of those either love it or hate it kind or brands for most people, yet I somehow find myself smack dab in the middle.
While I'm not exactly a monogram canvas enthusiast, I always seem to aimlessly wander inside every Louis Vuitton boutique I pass by in my travels or shopping excursions and I always leave very happy and pleasantly impressed.
From most of my retail experience, Louis Vuitton stores always have friendly staff and their window displays and stores are always so dynamic and welcoming
(unlike *cough* Chanel *cough*, where you feel an ice cold breeze as soon as you get within a 50 foot radius of the entrance).
It almost makes me want to invest in the brand more, and I really admire them for achieving that.
They always have gorgeous promo photos as well... how beautiful is this picture:

she's fancy, huh?

I own one Louis Vuitton bag that I purchased in Rome in the fall of 2009, a Speedy 30 in Damier Ebene canvas - I love it so so much - the shape and size are just perfect and I feel that it completely satisfies my canvas need.
My next Louis Vuitton purchase will most certainly be a leather one.

Anyways, without any more fluff, here are the leather bags that always catch my eye when I walk into a Louis Vuitton store - there's a common theme since I'm on a nude purse hunt right now.
They may be quite far out of my budget right now, but that never stops me from admiring :)

the Alma in Monogram Vernis

the Alma in Epi Leather

the MM Lockit in Suhali Leather

the closest thing to those bags that I'll be able to afford... haha

What are your thoughts/experiences with this brand?
Any bags you've been admiring from afar lately?

Hope you're all having a great weekend!


  1. louis voutton has some great bags, they are so classic and match with just about anything you can wear, I have the monogram speedy bag and its great because it doesnt look that big but you can fit a ton of stuff in it lol :)

  2. i'm not a fan of monograms because i always feel like it would look pretentious on me. but i can definitely appreciate the LV bags, they're always so gorgeous.

    as for me, i've been obsessed with the balenciaga city and the mulberry alexa bags.

  3. I love that belt!. Not crazy about the LV bags, i just feel weird seeing alot of young 14 yo girls carrying such a bag. It's not right. I much prefer Miu Miu handbags, Chloe and Marc Jacobs.

  4. I find Luis Vuitton bags to be one of the better made bags. The leather/canvas bags last amazingly. I wore the one gucci bag I have while Luis Vuitton one looks like I just purchased it :) Since they cost so much, the quality makes it worth the purchase :)

  5. I like the look of the traditional monogram bags that are worked in. But I'm loving that trench in the image...

  6. I do like LV, I have a small bag from them. I'm not huge on the monograms but I do love all of their other things (kind of with a lot of brands really like coach). I have had good experience with them as like stores.

    I don't have a specific bag that I am eyeing, but I would love a bag by Balenciaga.

  7. Love the first two, and of course the belt. I know what you mean when people say you either love something or hate it I'm always in the middle.

  8. I was planning on purchasing my first Louis Vuitton bag this summer. Ironically, it was the Speedy 30 Damier.
