louis vuitton monogram shearling

Feast your eyes fashionable girls and boys, for this is the last Scarlett ad you will see from me! Yes, my fall preview series has come to a sad conclusion and I have oh-so-thoughtfully saved the best, or maybe the worst, for last. This wonderful bag, which slightly resembles some furry beast or at the very least an Ugg boot, is the new Louis Vuitton Monogram Shearling. Right from the get-go this bag just holds no appeal to me with the shiny, slightly plastic looking, monogram material and the fur sticking out everywhere. Great bag for the abominable snowman to look fashionable in, but maybe not so much for the fashionable New York gal! To add insult to injury, the bags carry quite the hefty price tag for some plastic coated shearling wool with vernis handles! My verdict: a big thumbs down!

Welcome back to another edition of Tuesdays with Twiggers!

My eyes spy a subtle metallic hint in the handbag Scarlett is sporting this week. And of course, what fashionable girl’s fall wardrobe would be complete without metallics? I’ve been searching for the perfect fall handbag for weeks, and the color on the new Louis Vuitton Limelight Clutch is gorgeous, but the bag itself it not calling out to me. From the description, this bag has it all: choice of two colors (perle or copper), quilted monogram logo on laminated fleecy wool, satin luster, snap closure, hidden zip pocket, and the Louis Vuitton inventeur plaque. So far so good, but then I see the words unstructured and foldable, and all of a sudden my wallet closes! Maybe it is just me, but this fall season I am seeing a lot of structure and sleek silhouettes in ad campaigns, and this floppy handbag doesn’t fit into the fall image I’ve seen. Therefore, my bank account can breathe a sigh of relief at not having to dish out $1275! And the search for that perfect fall handbag continues.

The Louis Vuitton Limelight Clutch releases in September and wait lists are now open. Call 1-866-VUITTON (more…)

Welcome back to another installment of Tuesdays with Twiggers!

My obsession with the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2007 ad campaign continues. It is really one of the best ad campaigns I have seen so far this season, and Scarlett is my girl crush – so that helps too! This week, the breathtaking Scarlett is seen holding the new Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Alligator Biker. This edgy new line is straight from the runway and features soft lambskin leather quilted with the Louis Vuitton monogram. The leather is varnished to give a glossy effect, while the chunky hardware gives off a not-so-subtle biker-chick vibe! There are several new bags being released in this line, available in October, with different colors and trims. Please see pictures below for selection and prices! I must say, the selection available this season is making my head spin and my wallet cry out in disbelief! I think this could be one of the hottest fall bags, but with high prices the demand may not be there. Stay tuned next week for a glimpse of yet another hot Fall/Winter release!

Welcome to another installment of Tuesdays with Twiggers!!

Confession time! I have a girl crush on Scarlett Johannsen. I know some of you might not agree, but just look at that ad! The flowing blond hair, the gorgeous color palette; GOTCHA; this isn’t a celebrity blog, this is a Purse Blog, right? Well move your eyes down a little and check out that bag! My heart stopped a beat when I first saw it on the runway months ago, and now that the print campaign is here my bank account’s heart has also stopped.

The new Louis Vuitton Monogram Mirage line has done the impossible by turning the boring monogram canvas into a true work of art. Notice that the LV monogram pattern gradually fades the closer it gets to the top of the bag. This is a process in photography know as degrade. There are also a couple new styles of bags being released in this line, most notably the Griet, which is shown in the ad above.

Now is the time to break the bad news to you. Like everything else in the Louis Vuitton world, these bags are coming to a store near you with a hefty price tag! OK;.they are gorgeous bags, and yes they are limited edition bags;but I am still sticker-shocked by a price of (I’d advise you to sit down) $8,850 for an alligator trimmed canvas (say it with me people) yes canvas bag! But no fear, the average everyday person can snap up the Speedy 30 for a mere $1,800. Remember, these prices are subject to change (i.e. increase) before release. Sorry Louis Vuitton, I’m out! What do you think? Worth it or not?

Release Date: September 15th, 2007
Call 1-866-VUITTON to be placed on waitlist today.

louis vuitton keychainWelcome to Tuesdays with Twiggers, a new weekly guest blogger dedicated solely to all things Louis Vuitton.

Someone once told me that the right accessory can make or break an entire outfit. Now the same can be said for your handbag! Feeling blah about that boring black Balenciaga? Or maybe that brown Bottega is getting boring? The solution has been right in front of us, or should I say dangling right in front of us, for years. That’s right, that keychain you’ve been carrying can double as a bag charm. Even that fancy Hermes scarf tied around your neck can adorn your bag. Think bright colors to take away the boredom of that basic black or brown bag! I stumbled upon this little cutie a couple weeks ago and my bags have been thanking me ever since. Made by Louis Vuitton, this resin keychain can easily clip onto every bag out there. With so many bright colors it will match any outfit I wear! The small, gold Louis Vuitton plaque adds a little touch of elegance. And at only $225 it won’t break the bank.

Louis Vuitton Miroir Line

Click to enlarge!

Metallic bags are the bags to carry this holiday season and the IT bag to be seen with is the new Louis Vuitton Miroir Line. Janet Jackson has been photographed carrying this new IT bag, even though the new Miroir line does not officially launch until December 1. The frenzy surrounding this launch is comparable to the 2003 launch of the Cherry Blossom line, with stores only receiving limited numbers of each bag and the wait lists being extremely long.

Janet Jackson Louis Vuitton Miroir Line

The full Miroir line includes bags representing Louis Vuitton’s most iconic and recognizable shapes: Speedy, Papillon, Keepall, Alma, and Pochette. The line comes in two different colors: Silver and Gold. I must admit that I am not a huge fan of this new line, in fact the silver seems oddly reminiscent of aluminum foil and if you have trouble finding a mirror to touch up your makeup you can always use your bag! In addition, if you’re one of those people who doesn’t like to draw attention to yourself with your bag then this is definitely not for you. Another major problem that is holding me back from loving this line is that the Speedy comes with a price tag of $1330 USD and is made of PVC, therefore causing me to question the durability of such a pricey bag. That said, the frenzy surrounding the Miroir line is unlikely to die down anytime soon and if you are contemplating buying one you should call Louis Vuitton immediately to place yourself on the waiting list, so that you can be one of the first to be carrying this season’s IT bag!

Note: Prices on the above picture were listed prices before recent price increase. Prices on this line have increased approximately 10%. For more information on wait lists and prices call: 1-866-VUITTON or check the Louis Vuitton online boutique.
