My Louis Vuitton Collection

I was really hesitant to film this video, but so far, the feedback has been very positive.  I hope that most of you take it in the spirit in which it was intended, which is to give you more information in a casual way.  Sometimes it’s a bit intimidating to ask a lot of questions when you get to the store, so I hope I’ve given you a place where you feel comfortable to ask any question you’d like!

Here’s a rundown on my bags and what I think of each of them:

The Tivoli GM in Monogram Canvas:
This bag was the first one I acquired, and probably took me the longest to pick out.  I think I tried on every single bag in the store before I settled on it.  At the time, I was looking for something that I could use everyday, that would hold everything I could possibly want to bring along, and that could be secured easily with a zipper.  Also, since this was my first LV, I wanted a “classic” pattern, so I went with the Monogram Canvas.

Pros: Easy to clean, three interior pockets, feet on bottom for protection, fits easily on shoulder, zipper to secure contents

Cons: Zipper can be tricky to close due to the curved top of the bag, it can get a bit heavy if you put too much in it

The Thames GM in Monogram Canvas:
This bag also comes with a story.  I bought it in Paris while on vacation with my family, and I got to meet my friend through YT, Myriam, at the Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysees.  It was quite an experience to not only shop at the LV flagship store, but to do it with a friend and native French speaker!  My criteria for the bag I wanted at the time was still something I could use everyday, but scaled down somewhat, so it would be appropriate to take to meetings and other more formal events.  I picked the Thames because it fit the bill and, most importantly, the brass plate on the front lists the address of the flagship store.  So, every time I look at the bag, I’m reminded of where I was when I bought it and who I was with!

Pros: Easy to clean, fits nicely on the shoulder and against the body, zipper secures easily

Cons: None that I can think of

The Speedy 30 in Damier Azur Canvas:
This bag was bought purely because I wanted a spring time bag, and I wanted the ultimate classic shape from Louis Vuitton.  I “tried out” the other two sizes in the store, but it made me feel a bit like Goldilocks-one was too small, the other too big.  In the end, the medium sized one was just right!

Pros: Great pattern for spring and summer, quite a roomy bag, classic silhouette

Cons: Can get dirty easily, awkward to carry for long periods of time

The Neverfull MM in Damier Ebene Canvas:
Two days after bringing home my Speedy, I realized that it’s not the everyday bag that I was hoping for.  I like having my hands and arms free, and I found that the Damier Azur print does not work well when set on bleachers at baseball games and football games, which is where I spend a lot of my time.  I usually also have to haul sunscreen, fans, snacks, etc, so I needed a bag that could be more of a workhorse.  So, back to the LV boutique I went, and I returned with the Neverfull in the Damier Ebene print.

Pros: Can hold just about anything, easily cleaned, pattern goes with just about everything

Cons: Straps are on the thin side so they can dig into the shoulder at times, doesn’t close in order to secure contents

The Sarah Wallet in Monogram Vernis in Amarante:
My husband presented me with this wallet on the day we had to put our dog to sleep, as a way to cheer me up.  He was very proud that he picked it out all by himself.  While it didn’t really cheer me up, I do love the wallet.  It can hold an amazing amount of stuff, and I love all the different pockets and slots.  It can also double as a clutch, easily holding my iPhone and a lipstick in it.

Pros: Holds a great deal of stuff, beautiful color

Cons: Can get heavy, patent leather shows fingerprints, coin purse is inside so if it’s too full the wallet won’t shut

The Eva Clutch in Monogram Canvas:
My most recent purchase came to me while vacationing in Bermuda.  I had brought the Neverfull with me, but I really wanted a smaller cross body bag that was more efficient for touring and running around the island.  I saw a fellow guest at our hotel wearing this bag and decided this was the one!  I love how versatile this bag is-it can be worn cross body style, as a shoulder bag, or as a wristlet.  This might be my favorite out of the whole collection!

Pros: It’s quite versatile, can be worn three different ways, can hold a great deal of essentials, has a zipper to secure contents

Cons: Long leather cross body strap can’t be adjusted in length
