How To Clean And Care Your Louis Vuitton Alma Bag in Monogram Canvas

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-alma-bag-care-clean-maintenance

Yesterday we stole a couple of hours of Victoria’s time and ask her everything about cleaning and caring designer handbags. Because we noticed that she has already been infected by ‘bag obsession’ (no cure for that, I guarantee), we needed her to share some real-life experience. We took her favorite Louis Vuitton Alma Bag as an example; ‘Victoria, please tell us your story!’

I purchased this Louis Vuitton Alma bag because I am OBSESSED with handbags and Louis Vuitton, the Alma is such a classic bag for any person of any age and in my opinion one of the top classics in the LV collection.

My shopping experience with Louis Vuitton is always amazing, I always shop at my home store which is in the United States in Florida at the International Mall in Tampa. They are always so welcoming and helpful.

I purchased the Alma I believe in Tampa, Florida that is where most my Louis’ are purchased!

I think I purchased this bag about 5 -6 years ago or probably more than that! The retail price then I believe it was a little over 1000 I believe? now I believe it currently retails for 1500.

Why did you choose this leather and what is your experience so far?
Louis Vuitton Monogram is the first and top styles to come in most bags, the far most popular to really say “ I am carrying a Louis Vuitton” when I first purchased the Alma they did not carry it in the Damier Ebene, vernis. ☹

Have you accidentally damaged your bag so far? If so, then what was your initial response and how did you resolve it?
OH my! This is a big one, I am soo protective over all my handbags, they are expensive bags and to not take care of them is so upsetting. In Florida in rains constantly, I constantly and putting them under my shirts if I don’t have an umbrella or find a plastic bag to shove them in! I had once got the bottom wet, my little brother put my bag on the floor of a restaurant ( YES HE DID) I don’t ever do that, and of course… it was slightly wet.

In which occasion do you often use this bag? (as an everyday?)
I only use this bag maybe every other month for a week. I frequently change out my handbags, and working in an office environment I sometimes don’t like bringing my high end bags.

What do you do to maintain your bag?
I always keep my handbags in the original dust bag this is a must! It keeps it from getting moisture in or any dust bunnies or anything that likes to hide! I also keep stuffing inside the bags so it doesn’t loose its shape!

Do you use any products? If so, then what are the products and prices? Also how often do you maintain your bag and how do you put these products in use?
I do use products, I love the Kate Spade Conditioner and leather cleaner they are both available for only $10 a piece on Kate Spades web site! I usually clean my bags every 2 months or so, but definitely before and after I use the handbag!

Have you tried any products that didn’t work out in the past?
I haven’t had any bad luck with products, all I can suggest is make sure you use LEATHER cleaner, some people just use soap and water never do that!

Where and how do you store your bag?
I store my bag in my handbag containers which is actually in it’s physical dust bag. I never keep it out of the dustbag unless I am using it… I actually think when I am using it at night I put it back in the dust bag. ☺

Do you have any more tips and advices for newbies?
Love your handbags! They are expensive pieces but they can last forever, take care of them and if you ever have questions ask! Bring them into someone to clean if you don’t trust yourself. Most Louis Vuitton stores have people they recommend to send the handbags too!

Fall-Winter 2015 Dior Accessories Campaign Featuring Jennifer Lawrence

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: DIOR 

Back as the face for Dior once again for both the French luxury house’s Be Dior andDiorissimo bags is Jennifer Lawrence, looking fresh-faced in the campaign shot by famed photographer David Sims.

IMAGE: DIOR

With the F/W15’s emphasis on bold colours and animal-inspired prints, Ms Lawrence looks ever like the modern Dior woman, quietly elegant without the need of OTT hair and makeup, which is in a way how personable she is in real life.

IMAGE: DIOR

Case in point? There’s an accompanying BTS video where she gives soundbites like how she uses Dior’s small bags for dressing up (and going out) and refers to the big ones as simply her ‘airport bags’. Down-to-earth and lovely. As if we needed any more reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence.

Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessories in Epi

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Pochette-NM-Orange

Perhaps you have already seen it or you haven’t. Either way it doesn’t matter because the Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessories is so ‘timeless’ that we are going to write anyway.

There are a few stories to tell about the Pochette Accessories…

But what you need to know first is that there are abundance of colors to choose from and they are all bright and shiny – yellow, purple, blue, red, pink orange and for those who can’t-live-without the classic color, there is also black.

Secondly, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessories was originally made for the bucket bag, but the arbiters of fashion soon declared the Pochette to be an iconic in its own right.

Though it’s not stated on Louis Vuitton’s website, we can confidently let you that’s crafted from the most coveted ‘epi leather’. It’s refined with shiny silver metallic pieces, basically to-die-for.

The Pochette Accessories can be worn over the shoulder on its strap for day and when the sun switch places with the moon, transform the Pochette into a chic clutch. Versatile, light, compact in an array of bright and bracing color.

Measuring 9.1’ x 5.1’ x 1.6’ (W x H x D), it comes with one interior flat pocket. You can get it for $685 or €450 at your nearest Louis Vuitton boutique as its sold-out online.
