The Louis Vuitton Petting Zoo

It was the perfect day today to go to the National Zoo. Though elephants and hippos abound there, I was more interested in petting a different breed...those that have been captured by Louis Vuitton for this season. For starters, I wanted to feed the GM Shopper in Alligator and Python. Costing a whopping $14,100 this baby is a by deposit only piece. Perfect for the shoulder, the alligator handles were suprisingly comfortable. I just LVoe the colour green that they chose for it, plus the faceted brass rivets adds a fantastic detail. The interior is roomy with three divisions, a classic LV shape! Encased in glass, it wanted to go with me whilst I was playing with it. Sadly, I was short by $2.00 so it had to go back in its terrarium. Notice that the bag has a smiley face as I kissed it good-bye. A few feet away, there was a python all balled up in the shape of the Artsy MM. Plain yet elegant, I wish I spoke parseltongue but could only utter L-V-o-e when I found out that it was a $12000 bag. Slither away from me little python! Catty-corner from the snake, I was beckoned, not by an animal but Psyché herself from the Monogram Volupte Collection. Beautiful in its functionality, this $3270 city bag had alligator embossed leather to mimic its exhorbitant cousins. Lastly, as I stepped out of the zoo and bade farewell to my new friends, I was accosted by Liza, a sequin embroidered pump with a price tag of $660. I declined the offer to follow the yellow brick road because I preferred ruby slippers for that job. It would have been a better match with my ol' Speedy Mirage, don't you think? LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
