I know it's not the best photo but I spent a wonderful day with my friend, Arjay, beginning with the movie "Biutiful" (it's hard to watch) and a bit of shopping. Here he is drained from a depressing movie, frigid weather and lots of walking (we hit the shops at Georgetown) BUT his Lockit Horizontal still LVooks fab!
For fans of the intricately quilted leather, Antheia, a new style is coming out called the Ixia. Slated to be released in March, it will come in PM, MM and GM with a variety of colours; pictured here is the anthracite. I really LVoe the current trend of top handled bags with a shoulder strap option. It makes life so much easier. Prices are $2950, $3060 & $3480, depending on the size. Also, it is a seasonal piece, so put your names on the list if you want one. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
As much as I hate Claire Danes due to ignorant comments she made about the Philippines in a past interview, I have to admit that she LVooks ravishing in this Vuitton ensemble. Taken at the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, sigh...she did well. Thanks, Hydie!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and what better way to surprise an LV LVoer such as myself than with a Monogram Canvas Heart Coin Purse! The Miroir and the Vernis have had their interpretations but nothing beats Georges' iconic canvas. Available for $390 at www.louisvuitton.com. Thanks, Angie. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it anyways!!!
The Multicolore Patti is that perfect piece to transition from day to evening. A smaller companion for the Annie, these new releases for the Murakami Collection is whimsical with its bows that match perfectly the playfulness of the line. $1600 at www.louisvuitton.com.
The winter snow is quite enjoyable for the first few weeks but there comes a time when you just get tired of it and LVook forward to the arrival of Spring. Thankfully, I received my catalogue today for just such a purpose and the fabulous pics truly brought some warmth in my 30° environ. LVoe it!!!

I was pleasantly surprised today when I saw the new windows in our local Louis Vuitton Boutique. The Groom is back with a stack of LV pieces on his head! I fondly reached for my pochette wallet inside my "B" to say hi to the lil' guy. Gosh, it's been almost 4 years since I bought him. I was so happy to see the windows and I would like to share it with y'all. LVoe it!!! Actually an SA was fixing the window as I passed by on my way home. I think she was embarrassed that I took snapshot. Also, the store was flanked by close ups of antique trunks and this silver hardware was my favourite.
I was so thrilled when a friend recommended that i check out your site! Your photo's are truly amazing & i will now be checking your blog religously lol. Attached is a photo of me & my baby sister outside our LV store here in Queen Street, Auckland - New Zealand after purchasing some much desired Christmas presents for ourselves :-) I will have to send another photo soon to show you what goodies are actually in the brown little bags lol Anyways....Keep up the good work & know that your LV friends here in NZ absolutely LVoe your blog!!! God Bless. Tommy and Taylah Thanks for sending your photo in T & T. LVoe it!!!

Part of the Louis Vuitton Art Déco Collection for Spring Summer 2011, the Trapèze is a cute purse that is crafted out of calfskin and embellished with an impressive hardware. The bag has a long chain strap that would sit comfortably on the shoulder. Estimated to be around the low $3K. LVoe it!!! Runway Photo: style.com

Judging from Louis Vuitton's Fall Winter Men's Runway Show, the MAN CLUTCH is back! I remember my Papa carrying one of those when I was growing up. They are nice and all but you can't really carry a lot in them. As you scroll down the briefcases and travel bags, nothing seems remarkable until you are arrested by the bum bag. Cutesy but I could imagine myself wearing one. One thing I find interesting and would LVoe to see in real life are the ginormous hardware. They truly make the piece. The skins used are amazing especially the distressed LVook on the briefcases and luggages. Also, the Nomade-like leather on the clutches especially the creme folio is a must see. The white and red Damier embossed are definitely show stoppers. Lastly the lone Monogram Canvas clutch was either an after-thought or an obligatory "affordable" version. All in all it's a fantastic collection of arm candies from Paul Helbers. LVoe it!!! Photos from style.com Photos from style.com
