Louis Vuitton Antheia Hobo

First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates in the past few days. Secondly, remember that NARS lip gloss in Dolce Vita that I got free from the last NARS haul? Well, it has quickly become my favorite gloss! I am running to buy a full size very soon. I get overly excited when I find a new favorite. I think this one is a keeper, guys. It is super pigmented so I can just throw it over my lips throughout the day without worrying about lipstick. Though I’ll show swatches of it over different lipsticks once I purchase the full lip gloss. (Pairing Dolce Vita with OPI Germanium polish today.)

Now, onto the little LV discussion:

In case you are wondering, the true reason I have been looking at Louis Vuittons is because they have this picture of Zinedine Zidane plastered all over their website.

I have never been that into Louis Vuittons because I don’t like their emphasis on their logo and quite frankly, I find the price tag to be ridiculous. I also think that at this point, it is a little unoriginal to own one of those monogram bags. One look and someone will be able to tell how much your bag is and conjure up in her mind the list of people she knows with that same bag. For designer wearers, a monogram LV says, I have one too. For those not into designer-wears, the bag says, you know I am an LV so look at me. I have always felt that wearing an LV, I would be judged prematurely.

Now, there are the bags without the monogram, but I think they can get a little boring. If you are going to purchase an LV, why not make it worth the money? This new Louis Vuitton Antheia Hobo may just solve all the problems. It is made of luxuriously soft lambskin leather and has embroidered flower monogram that doesn’t scream, look at me. It’s classy and subtle while maintaining all its LV goodness. But hey, what do I know? Maybe I am just partial to the slouchy lambskin.

At a price of nearly $3000 though, I know I won’t be purchasing this bag.
