Unexpected LVook-See: Lockit and Saumur

I just happened to be in the mall today with Arjay and Liz when we decided to pop in our local boutique. I wasn't really expecting much but lo and behold, someone was LVooking at the New Lockit. I never really understood the expensive price point ($2840 I think for an MM) until I opened the bag. What greeted me was luscious goat leather in sumptuous bordeaux. Now that explained a lot! The MM had an "open pocket" inside plus the fancy pull tab taken from the FW's Fascination Lockit, only to have the resin replaced with vache leather. The piece was amazing! Next we saw two of the Cruise 2012 Collection pieces. The Perforated Saumur going for around upper $2K and the Pochette with its encased mirror inside ($1250). The canvas was lined in alcantara just like the collection from Spring Summer 2006. The Saumur was more practical but the clutch was really LVoely. The vache leather is also oxidized so it has that patina LVook. I just added this shot to include the amazing table that the bags were sitting on as well as the side view of the double compartment Saumur. Pardon the blurry snapshot of me and Arjay. It must've been the martinis we were enjoying! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

  2. The Clutch is really amazing. When you open it, there's an inner pocket the mirror sits in. As I mentioned, it has its very own sleeve. The main compartment is not that big but perfect for essentials on a nite out. Thanks for visiting my blog!
