The bag in question? Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Medium size, Damier Print. I know many of you also have the Neverfull and I'm sure you have your reasons as to why you love this bag. Mine are probably pretty similar. First, the shape of this bag is perfect for me. I like my bags big with lots of room to throw important, life-saving things in. Like... legos and army soldiers and Nintendo DSi consoles. & perhaps the occassional wallet and keys, too. Like I said earlier, I analyze. So instead of buying the bag last July as an Anniversary gift for myself, I decided to wait on the bag until we got to Paris for a) So that I could buy my Louis in Paris and b) So that I could take advantage of the Value Added Tax rebate that I'd get back as part of the deal. Option B makes me think that the bag is actually a deal, because it would now be approx. 20% cheaper. I think.
Second, I chose the damier print for its darker color which I think matches more of what I wear. I'm sort of a subdued type of gal who likes her blacks, greys and navy colors and this bag rolls with my homies like that. It's subtle. Third, I love, love, love the red interior with Champs Elysee printed on it. Even though I could have bought this bag anywhere and it would say that, I know I'll always remember Paris when I open up the bag and see that in there.
As you can gather we're still here in Paris, soaking up a few more days of vacation before heading back to Japan. The last few days have been a blur. Rome, Venice, Salzburg and Munich have come and gone and now we're a tired bunch who just wants to hang out and chill. Which gives me un moment or deux with my laptop. There's so much craziness and hustle and bustle, it's nice to chill out and just have a glass of wine and write about nothing that important. Like my new Neverfull.
Hope everyone's week leading up to 2010 is a fun one.
