400th Post ~ Homage to the Damier Lune

Apol, am still Click pic to enlarge

I got the call...

LV Puerto Rico called me today to inform me that they have received their shipments of the Montorgueil. Also, it is available on the website for purchase so I am guessing that the Monty has arrived!!! Enclosed is a pic of this new addition to the Monogram Canvas line from fabulous Taipe's LV boutique courtesy of my world traveller friend, Bill.

I LVoe Paris

My favorite heiress and her then Monogram Velours Irvine

Pre-fall 2007 Rewind

I wonder whatever happened to the Neverfull and Sergent. The Neverfull was the it bag late last year and I have seen a couple in action. The Sergent, on the other hand, was the seasonal show stopper. I always LVoed the militaryesque material but could not justify the high price tag. It was definitely different and quite memorable. So for all you Sergent owners out there, drop me a line and update us about your unique piece! As for you Neverfull owners, continue rockin' those babies. I heard that the damier ebene version is coming soon.

Rayure Clutch

Featured on this Malaysian model is the clutch from the Monogram Tissé line. When I first saw the preview pics, I instantly fell in LVoe with all three pieces. Unfortunately seeing them in real life with their prices made me shy away from them. Doesn't the model look a tad bit like Sheila, though? Photo credit: bagboy84 Marie Claire, Malaysia

Painting the town RED (or PURPLE)

Weekend job

Angel brought her Pomme d'Amour Porte-Trésor International today and I was appalled by the numerous pen marks that lay siege on this fabulous wallet. Being the OCD person that I am, I offered to clean it up for her. Here's a snapshot of me hard at work, trying to be as gentle as possible. I treated that baby as if it were my own. I was not able to remove all the marks, but was succesful in lightening them up a bit. In the end she was thrilled with the results. Thanks to for their wonderful products!

Mahina XS

A new addition to the Mahina leather family, this LVoely perforated beauty is slated to be released in the Spring and I'm sure would be a an instant hit. LVoe the white and gold color combo.

Flurry of excitement

I went to LV today with Speed to check out their messenger bags and he chose this delightful Broadway to be the first of many. LVoe it!

Night out with the guys

Speedy and his Multiple monogram wallet with Wil and Jorge

Trunks & Bags Accessory

Believe it or not, this seemingly vain accessory has proven to be useful for my purposes. My phone fits snugly in its case and I do in fact use the charms to pull it out in one fluid motion. If my current one breaks, which it almost did a week ago, I would get this in a jiffy. $190.00

Am considering this...

Jeff surprised me yesterday by taking me to Louis Vuitton to pick an item of my choosing for Valentine's. I was tempted to ask for the most expensive piece in the store but it would probably open a can of worms if he finds out how luxurious LV really is. This is from a guy who abhors anything branded and has vowed never to get me anything LV. I guess LVoe makes you do crazy things.
