You've made it in this world if you have a Louis Vuitton bag named after you. I guess I can stop believing that I have made it in this world, because there surely isn't an LV named after me (I'd like to think that in the future there will be someday?!). The new Louis Vuitton Audra is named after an iconic Broadway singer, Audra McDonald, which gives a new appeal to the Monogram Multicolore canvas line. Best part of the bag for me is the heavy golden metallic hardware and links which gives way to the natural cowhide handles. The shape is also alluring, being not square but triangular. The canvas is the Monogram Multicolore with natural cowhide trim and golden metal hardware, which was of course designed by Takashi Murakami. The inside is lined in Ruby alcantara and has two compartments to hold goodies. I guess the day that I have a high end bag from a classic designer like Louis Vuitton named after me, it means I'm golden. Until then, I'll be an insignificant bump on a log. If you want to wear another's fame and fortune in a bag, the Audra is available for $1250 via eLuxury.


What better way to pair up a new bag than with new shoes? Now for me personally, LV bags haven't been my favorite, for the mere reason (to some it may sound stupid) that the fakes keep being made and are so bad. But the shoes, I have always had a liking of. The Louis Vuitton Multicolore Open-Toe Mule is a sexy shoe with an unbelievably cute style. The shoe is trimmed with natural cowhide which is underlined by fuchsia patent leather. This of course matches the insoles, which are made of fuchsia suede goat leather and are accented with yellow topstitching. Some of my favorite parts are the violet velvet bow, and the angular heel which is 2". You know why that heel is amazing, because it is short! Try being 5'10.5 and finding shoes that don't make you tower over every man around you. Luckily Vlad is 6'3 so I’d be set with these heels. These shoes could make any outfit right for $490 through eLuxury.

Any comments?

I like the Louis Vuitton Audra. I'm not a big fan of the Monogram Multicolore canvas line. But the overall bag design is very nice! I love the split compartments inside. That'll make it so much easier to be organized.

As usual I like LV shoes, but I'll have to skip on the Louis Vuitton Multicolore Open-Toe Mule.

I am always in favor when the bag and shoes match. The mules are darling! The pert heel and saucy little bow just set them off nicely. The bag will probably fade in comparision but one does need something to carry ones car keys in, doesn't one?

I like the shoes, but I've never really cared for the Audra much. When I checked it out at LV it just seemed boring.

I love bags
LV is not my fav- but this shape seems cool to me. Although I haven't seen it in person so I'm not fully sure... will have to go check it out sometime soon!

I do luv louis vuitton but i agree, with everyone walking around with obvious fakes Lv bags it is hard to see the point to buying the real one, but a real louis vuitton bag looks so much betta betta quality too, im not too keen on the bag i think it is pretty plain and ordinary but i do luv the shoes i saw them on LV website the other day there nice.

The bag is cute, and the shoes would be nice for spring or summer.

I love LV and have a wonderful mini monogram shoulder bag that I love but I totally dislike this line - plus I don't like any shoes that advertise the designer with logos.

I never really cared for the multicolore line, maybe because I saw too many tacky ripoffs before I ever saw the real thing. :toung:

I am so sick of the LV multicolor-white is barely tolerable anymore (especially when I see people carrying around the speedy) but I cringe when I see the black multicolor (yuck!) and I detest bootleg multicolor, this is the lowest of all lows...

The Audra style I just don't like particularly bc I don't like too much chain/metal hardware and bc I am a big clutz, if I were to fall, everything would dump right out...the shoes are alright, but not crazy for it.
