I have a ton to say in this post and I’m trying to narrow it down so I am not super chatty Kathy!
First of all, I had a ton of questions about this bag on my Instagram on Sunday. I went to Dallas last week and went to both Louis Vuittons in the Northpark mall trying to hunt down one item. Both of the LV stores were sold out of everything because of Christmas. If you have followed me for a while, you know I am LV obsessed. It has always been a favorite brand of mine and it was also the first designer bag I ever saved up for and purchased. Of course as a blogger, I try to diversify my handbag selection for many reasons so LV is not the only brand I love- but if I were told I could only carry one brand it would be Louis Vuitton. Okay wow– this is long and lengthy. SO, John always forgets to get Christmas presents for people – including me so I end up doing it all for him. And because of that I decided he could get me a new scarf, lol. I was checking out at LV and noticed there were a new handbag on the wall and it was the one I am carrying- called the Messenger/Marignan. The second I saw it, I knew immediately I was going to purchase it. It’s much larger than my pochette metis but it has this beautiful nude color on it and the hand at the top gives it a funky, vintage look. It is great for me because occasionally I just take my wallet, lipstick, diapers and wipes in a cross body when I am out with Luke running errands and this is a perfect size. It’s a new arrival so if you live near a store and you are saving your Christmas money for a new bag, definitely check it out. 🙂
Next, I had a ton of questions about this jacket. It is super old to me – like probably 3 or 4 years old! I got it on sale one summer and I have worn it so much that it is broken in and super soft. I love moto jackets and I have 4 that I adore – some are faux leather and some are suede. The ones I linked that are similar are SUPER amazing quality and also great price points for the quality. When my girlfriends come over and we are going to dress up and get dinner they all like to borrow these jackets!
Lastly, my shoes. Initially I was like “ok those are too extra for me!” but then I ordered them thinking they’d be cute for NYE and I ended up wearing them with casual looks instead. I get TONS of compliments on them and I love wearing them because the heel is not too high and they are actually pretty comfortable! I wish they came in a tan color now – I’d love that!
Alright, I’ll chill with all the talking haha. I have had a few people e-mail me asking if I could do a review of this bag and I don’t do it often for a few reasons. However, this is a bag I think you all would love if you are looking to splurge on a designer bag. That being said, let me know in the comments if you’d like a dedicated post!:)
