Louis Vuitton Vavin PM

Wow I'm on a roll right now! Blogging about expensive things is really putting me in a better mood :)

So I took a picture of my LV Vavin this weekend with the intention of posting it but then I realized that LV is much better at photography than me :P So here is the bag that started it all...my very first designer handbag that I bravely purchased at the tender age of 17/18. I don't remember what got into me that day but I made it my mission not walk out of the LV boutique at Valleyfair empty-handed. I think I went in there hoping to walk out with the mini looping purse which is a shoulder bag but realized it was too mature looking for me. I ignored all the snooty glances I got from the SA's and tried to act like I knew what i was doing...I think I broke out into sweat by the time the SA was charging my credit card :P I tried on several different bags before choosing the vavin which I thought best fit my age. This is strictly a HANDbag and it can get a little tiresome toting this around all the time...definitely not a good bag to go shopping with. The other annoying thing is the fact that there is no way to close this bag...I used to be really paranoid about getting things stolen but they have a little secret area inside that fits small wallets perfectly. This was THE bag for me for about a year or so but I haven't used it at all for the last 3-4 years. Compared to my other bags, this one is on the small side but it holds a lot of sentimental value so I've refused to give this one up. Also I was looking at curretn price on eluxury and daaayamn...prices have gone way up since I first started collecting handbags...

I can totally imagine you as a teenager carrying this cute little purse around high school.. yup, LV keeps raising their prices.. My first purse was their backpack purse (and I got the same purse TWICE but that's another story) and the price has almost doubled!!
