There are few brands from which I will happily buy monogrammed pieces, and Louis Vuitton is one of them. It’s not that I actively seek LV out, but somehow, it seems to seek me out – Louis Vuitton just does that to me. The brand has reinvented its monogram in so many ways that it never feels old to me, which is a pretty neat trick on the part of the brand’s designers.

For reasons that are perhaps obvious, I don’t follow men’s fashion as closely as I do women’s, but I love to look through the looks after the Louis Vuitton men’s show every season. Vuitton is a unique brand in that it has almost equal appeal to both genders; where most companies specialize, Vuitton achieves equal-opportunity luxury. When you take a look through these pictures of the bags, shoes and accessories from Louis Vuitton Fall 2013, it’s not difficult to see why no one can get enough LV.

Why are we posting about this? Well, it’s Wednesday, so I say, why not? Today in random but tasty news, we have L.A. Clipper Ronny Turiaf pictured at his birthday party with a custom Louis Vuitton Cake. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have a major sweet-tooth, and something about a cake being made to look like a bag just gives me happy feelings.

The iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy is easily recognizable and widely adored. As one of the most well-known handbags, the Speedy is reinterpreted season after season in a variety of renditions by Marc Jacobs and his accessories team. I always look forward to what they will come up with, and while some versions aren’t my taste, I always find at least a couple that are.

Today we have the new Mrs. Justin Timberlake exiting the Good Morning America studios in NYC with her dainty Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere Empreinte. While the bag looks fuchsia pink here under paparazzo lighting, this is actually the red “Orient” version. Jessica Biel looks ridiculously excited to be out, considering how early in the morning it probably was, but why miss a chance to flaunt an iconic Louis Vuitton design like this one?

Every holiday season, I realize I need to step up my clutch game. With so many holiday parties and soirees, it’s imperative that we dress our finest to impress everyone, especially ourselves. I love a good, party but I love a great clutch even more. Louis Vuitton always delivers, whether it’s with the company’s world-famous luxury travel gear or its small accessories and evening bags; the brand makes something for everyone, and for every occasion.

One of the most interesting parts of this job is seeing how people arrive at our site. You guys get here in a zillion different ways, but one of the most persistent is your interest in the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, in all of its many sizes and incarnations. And really, I can’t blame you – the Neverfull is a foundational piece in the most important handbag line in the world, and it’s so versatile that it can be a useful wardrobe addition to almost anyone.

Regular Black Friday sales are fun, but you know what’s really fun? Being able to get your hands on vintage and gently used pieces that aren’t normally available on the Internet at all. That’s where our friends at Rue La La come in – they’re known for offering the best vintage and gently used rare pieces on the Internet, and because today is such a huge day in online shopping, they’ve cooked up something particularly special for you with the Rue La La Luxe Gifts Sale.

Here we have Reese Witherspoon, playing the dutiful soccer mom, ferrying the requisite orange slice snacks to her son Deacon’s soccer game. Stars: They’re just like us! On her other arm? (The one not on orange duty.) The Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Neverfull Tote, personalized with her initials “L.R.W.” (Her real first name is Laura.)

Reese looks none too happy about being photographed while momming it up in jeans, sneaks and a sweatshirt at a family outing.

Do I really need to say more? Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand plus words and today, this photo is here to make us all drool. The Louis Vuitton Alma is one of the most classic handbags of all time, and when I saw this green alligator version, I felt my heart skip a few beats. And what better than this small version, which is the epitome of evening-wear chic.
