Slated to be released in early March, the new Monogram Denim Collection from Louis Vuitton promises to be a colorful one. Extracting from Spring's natural palette, the blushes of rose, orange and blue are reminiscent of the Mirage Collection from FW 2007. The bags are practical and functional and meant to be everyday pieces. Their cutesy names are endearing and I would like to LVook at the Sunburst GM first. With a whopping price tag of around $3200, the GM boasts a roomy interior and is complimented by an exterior belted pocket. The straps are made of canvas with a vache leather shoulder guard. I am curious to see what is the function of the side zipper. It also comes in the PM size. Next, we have the Sunrise. A gartered messenger bag of sorts, it will come in orange and blue with an estimated price of $2600. Lastly, we have the smallest of them all (and cheapest at $2300), the Sunshine. I LVoe how the top part of the bag reminds me of a flight attendant's cap. Measuring less than a foot, it's definitely the most delightful of them all. I can't wait for them to come out! LVoe it!!!

As part of the Valentine items this year, Louis Vuitton decided to craft one of their most popular pieces in crocodile, the Heart Coin Purse. I immediately called 1-866-vuitton to ascertain how much it was. It took the associate 12 mins to get back to me and I almost gasped when she said that it was going for $2330!!! ¡Ay de mi! Once I collected myself, I calmy thanked her and put the receiver down...
Also released our way for this Spring is the Monogram Artsy. I can't wait to feast my eyes on the "braided" handle. I have seen this type in other designers and would LVoe to see it exectued in our good ol' vache leather. $1630 for the GM and $1400 for the MM, visit www.louisvuitton.com. Ohhh, by the way, these hobos are footed!
Crafted out of jacquard and lurex and embellished with fluorecent threads, the Monogram Cheche Collection is sure to please the fun LVoeing side in all of us. Let's start off with the Tuareg. A re-interpretation of the iconic Keepall, the luggage piece has flaps that will open to accomodate more within. To me, the black straps makes it perfect for guys who want to rock this baby and I LVoe where they placed the luggage tag. Expect to pay at least $4K. Next up is the Gypsy. Akin to military duffel bags, these double handed cylindrical pieces are "hold-alls". Being released in two sizes, they still fall under the luggage category in my book. PM is about $3500 while the GM will be close to $4K. Lastly we have the most practical of them all, the Bohemian. Poised as an all-around-everyday-bag, these are moderately priced at $2500 and comes in two colors, rouge and bleu. Once again, the placement of the tag is simply adorable. LVoe it!!!

One of my guilty pleasures on Monday nights is watching the latest Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, chose his one and only love. I know that this show is mindless but an LV popped onto the screen today, a Mini Lin Speedy and so I just wanted to share it with you all. Huh...I haven't used mine in ages. Maybe it's time to take him out of his dustbag this week.
