It seems like only a few years back these limited edition beauties were presented as newbie’s to the wonderful world of Louis Vuitton. The Cherry Blossom and Graffiti Collection were just two of the many collaborations the French house engaged in with some of the hottest pop culture artists of the moment.
The years went by quick, and now our favorite treasure hunters, What Goes Around Comes Around, is labeling these as vintage!
In case you missed it, there were a bunch of new Louis Vuitton and Chanel handbags added over the weekend on ShopBop. The seller is WGACA (what goes around comes around), a brand that specializes in reselling previously owned luxury handbags. One of the beautiful bags that caught my eye and I’ve grown to love over the years is the Noe carryall in a lovely blue Epi leather.
Obsessed: Louis Vuitton Alma BB in Pigment Orange
Loving the gorgeous pop of colors this bag is available in, especially the bright and juicy color Pigment Orange. So perfect for any season and most important wearable beyond the warmer season – I’m a firm believer in wearing a pop of color during the winter months. It’s not just a spring / summer thing. Especially over here in Seattle where everyone wears shades of grey. So dull. This bag is the perfect addition to liven up even the dullest outfit.
Louis Vuitton has faced off once again with the Contemporary Arts! The French luxury brand has collaborated with the Princess of Polka Dots, Ms. Yayoi Kusama, and has brought to us one of the most interesting collections yet. Japanese artist and writer Yayoi Kusama sees her life as “a dot lost among millions of other dots”. “Without beginning, end or center”, Kusama presents her designs as repetitious, infinite, and with much energetic vibe. Her signature pattern of spots on a solid background has captured the mind of Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, bringing their exciting affiliation to the world of fashion. Their vision is presented among some of Vuitton’s most classic collections.
To celebrate Louis Vuitton‘s 100th anniversary of the monogram canvas in 1996, Louis Vuitton selected a handful of designers to create their own signature piece. One of the designers asked was Spanish shoe designer Manuel “Manolo” Blahnik Rodríguez.
His creation, an oval shoe trunk (obviously right?)
I use to have a severe obsession with Louis Vuitton. I literally saved every penny I earned to buy handbags and accessories by the coveted brand. I didn’t care if it made me broke, I had to have Louis Vuitton goodies in my possession and the more the merrier! Don’t even get me started on the Multicolor collection. I splurged so much on this collection it’s ridiculous. Ever since I watched “Newlyweds” with Jessica Simpson and she rocked the collection, I had to have it. I didn’t stop at one purse though. I had to get 7 pieces from the collection. Talk about putting me in the poor house! I look back at it now, and shake my head! I will probably will end up selling it all eventually to help fund my move to Los Angeles. Someone slap me now!
I’m a hopeless romantic and I have a severe obsession with hearts. Any fashion accessory that features a heart in it, I automatically love it. Even if it’s ugly, I’ll still love it because hearts are equivalent to love and love is beautiful. Well, at least in my opinion it is.
When Louis Vuitton came out with the Multicolor Heart Change Wallet Key chain, I wanted it so bad. At the time I didn’t have the funds to purchase it and my Mother was not about to shell out $400 for me to have it. As I get older, I’m more wiser when it comes to money and this one by Marc Jacobs is adorable for a great price.
Jennifer Love Hewitt looked so put together at the Foundation Polo Challenge, an event to benefit the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. I love her navy blue dress from Monique L’Huillier and blue-gray peep-toe pumps from Christian Louboutin. But what is this lovely nude handbag I see accenting her look? It looks like a miniature version of the Louis Vuitton Vernis Alma. I haven’t seen a pint-sized Alma since Louis Vuitton’s little satin pieces from about a decade ago. So I guess it was about time for Louis Vuitton to once again experiment with favorite style-inspired minis. If you ask me, the Vernis Alma was an excellent choice!
