Welcome to a slightly delayed Edition of Tuesdays with Twiggers! Cruise season is officially upon us! Although if you are like me you are merely thinking of turkey dinner and trying to finish up your holiday shopping. However, the idea of taking off on a cruise to a faraway island and leaving the husband to finish his own holiday shopping, decorate the tree, hang the decorations, and cook the Christmas dinner (all while toting a fabulous new Louis Vuitton bag) somehow appeals to me!
Welcome back to Tuesdays with Twiggers!
Some of the most successful Louis Vuitton handbag lines have been the ones in which Takashi Murakami collaborated with Marc Jacobs. The Multicolore line, Cherry Blossom line, Panda, and Cerises were all the works of Japanese pop artist Murakami. The smiling cherries of the Cerises line were what initially drew me into a Louis Vuitton store, but alas I was too late and they were completely sold out.
Tuesdays with Twiggers: Louis Vuitton Updates Website for USA Customers
For months Louis Vuitton has been telling its American customers that the www.louisvuitton.com website would be undergoing extensive renovations. Early this week these renovations were revealed. Customers perusing the USA version of the website will now be able to see prices for every single item in the Louis Vuitton catalog. In addition, Louis Vuitton is now offering e-shopping through its website (previously the ONLY authorized online retailer was eLuxury – also owned by LVMH).
Tuesdays with Twiggers: Just when I think I’m done they lure me back in! This time it is the gorgeous Louis Vuitton XL handbag that has done it. I am a huge fan of the trendy oversized, super-slouchy handbags that we always see the Olsen twins carrying around, and this new handbag fits this description perfectly. If you are a fan of oversized bags then feast your eyes on this beauty that is available in the XL size (29.5″ x 12.8″ x 5.9″) and the XXL size (32.2″ x 16.5″ x 11.4″).
Tuesdays with Twiggers: Little by little my love for Louis Vuitton has been waning. I have been experiencing this irresistible urge for soft, smooshy leather in bold, bright colors. So it was with great anticipation that I eagerly waited for the pictures from the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 RTW show to surface, and for Louis Vuitton to lure me back in.
There comes a time in every woman’s life where you throw reason out the window and just decide to go for it! For some women this might be deciding to date a certain man, or accept a job offer. In my case it is these shoes, the Louis Vuitton Cornelia Ankle Boot. These are not your Mom’s frumpy ankle boots from the 1980s, these are simply divine works of art.
This delightful little accessory is so amazingly versatile that I decided to devote this week’s Tuesdays with Twiggers blog to not only sharing some newly released Louis Vuitton Bandeaus, but also to share with you the variety of ways it can be used. The fabulous bandeau should be a staple in every girl’s Louis Vuitton collection. It is relatively inexpensive and can dress up even the most bland outfit or bag.
Even if you are not a fan of the over-the-top monogram Louis Vuitton bags, you still have to admit that their accessories are some of the best out there! Or, if plunking down over $600 for a handbag isn’t something you can easily do but you still want something Louis Vuitton, then the accessories might be just the thing for you.
One of the deciding factors when I purchase a new handbag is whether or not the bag is functional. If I can’t fit all my ‘stuff’ (which sometimes can include the kitchen sink) in it, then what is the point of paying upwards of $1000 for the bag? I am also not a huge fan of letting the weather dictate which bag I can carry that day.
All luxury handbag designers are busy trying to lure in new customers, and keep their established customers spending more and more. Louis Vuitton does an exceptional job every season keeping its customers satisfied. Every season we are bombarded with a copious amount of new handbags and accessories to buy, and more often than not the name of the handbag is followed by the words limited edition.
