Name Dropping

I'm not exactly a big fan of the LV monogram but I do admit to liking them when I first started my bag collection. When I discovered that they were actually made of canvas and only had leather handles and trim, I became bothered by the mass appeal of these bags with the general public. I think part of the reason is because a lot of people dont realize that their bags are not actually made of leather. I think the other reason is because with an LV monogram bag or any monogram bag, you're letting everyone and their mom know that you paid a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars for your bag. I myself was one of those newbies who thought if I spend my money on something expensive, I want EVERYONE to know that its expensive. I write this in shame and hope that my rep isn't tarnished by this admission :P Anyhow, the thing that I hope people realize is that TRUE fashion lovers know each design house frontwards and backwards. They dont need a flashy logo to id a bag, they simply know the style. More importantly, TRUE fashion lovers respect and appreciate the classic, muted styles ALOT more than the trendy, flashy styles. So next time you pick out a bag, think twice before getting the one with "LV" or "Gucci" plastered all over it cus you might be getting eye-rolls instead of looks of admiration. I say go for the "quiet" bags that will garner you more credibility and respect :) Plus, the classic ones always outlast the trendy ones...

I totally agree with you that is why I like the style of the LV Damier Azur because it looks really simple and it's not monogrammed. It's still on my want list and I don't know when I will ever get to buy it. It sucks LV's almost never go on sale.

logo's are so tacky. and hungry.

Hi Anonymous - when you say Chanel 2.55, what size are you referring to? The jumbo 2.55 is around $2800-3000 and I believe the Classic jumbo is $2600-2800. The Purse Forum is a great place to check up on prices or you can call you local Chanel boutique!

Hey Mads - Yea, most classic designs never go on sale cus the houses know that those WILL also sell :P

Irene - Agreed :)
