Vintage Louis Vuitton Wardrobe Steamer Trunk
So everyday I walk past this boutique called Polite Society, never really stop in, more of just stare out of the corner of my eye as I walk by. They usually have really amazing window displays set up. I remember last winter they had this Louis Vuitton Trunk on display in their window, which I thought was just a display item and not for sale. Well, turns out it is, and it’s still available.
So anyway, finally about 2 weeks ago I finally stepped foot in the Polite Society. Iâ€™m not just saying this, but this is my newest favorite store. (and being one block away from the BB office is dangerously close.) They have gorgeous clothes and amazing one-of-a-kind home dÃ©cor items. When I was there, I picked up a Helmut Lang little black dress, which at first I was hesitant on the fit, but then the lovely lady working there convinced me, â€œthatâ€™s the fit of the dressâ€ so then I purchased it.. yeah, Iâ€™m an easy shopper. Also while there, I spotted the authentic LV trunk (Appraisal papers and authentication papers from the Louis Vuitton company included), still there, in excellent condition, neatly on display in the back corner of the store by the changing rooms.
Priced at $9850. And guess what ladies and guys, you donâ€™t have travel all the way to Emerald City to get this rare piece (however if you do want to, I of course recommend it), visit shoppolitesociety.com.
Ps. If you are in the Downtown Belltown Seattle area, this is the newest boutiques to carry Rebecca Minkoff! Not many other downtown shops carry this designer. Oh and they also got tons of cute new fall clothes in for both men and women!
