  1. First, I'd like to thank you for visiting this thread and I hope you'll enjoy the pictures. I love tPF and after many years of being here, I almost feel like this is family for me lol. However, I always hesitated to post my collection for personal reasons. Now I'll be starting something new in my life and can let go of these hesitations.

    This thread will comprise of bags, shoes, and some clothing and jewelry. My favorite designers included will be Louis Vuitton, Prada, Christian Louboutin, Dries Van Noten, Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany, and Rick Owens.

    My story starts with visiting my cousin in I think 2004 (I was 17?) who owned one of the original 2003 Multicolore bags by Murakami for LV - I later found out that it was called Sologne in white. It was so beautiful I thought, and frankly, I was quite envious lol. Many years later, my cousin grew out of this bag and gave her to me. Here she is at age 7.

  2. My envy turned into inspiration and I was determined to get my first LV bag. I saved almost a year for it.

    My first LV purchase: Monogram Trotteur

  13. LV LE FW07 Monogram Motard Biker in Black

    Beautiful bag, but also reminds me of bad memories. I had an issue with the threading on the handle that started to unravel even before I carried it. My usual 3 SAs were ever so kind in helping me, but their new manager was reluctant in exchanging it for me. Being one of their VICs, I did not appreciate her attitude which forced me to leave LV. I think other clients had issues with her as well, so after 2 years she was transferred elsewhere or so I was told.

  14. LV Monogram Pegase 60

    This size was discontinued soon after I purchased it and is available in 55 due to airline restrictions. Nonetheless, I continue to use it as a carry-on piece, usually with no problems. I don't recommend checking any LV luggage in though because I did this once and I got the biggest black grease mark running from top to bottom, 3 inches wide along the front AND they cut off my LE Miroir Lockit's lock which I had used cuz I couldn't find the one that came with the Pegase. Let me rant about the American airport security officers who are extremely rude. I asked them why they had to open my luggage, because there was NOTHING to be suspicious about. Of course the security guy mumbled something then said they were not looking for anything particular, just that my lock looked "funny" and may have "special features." Then they gave me a handout of locks with "special features" and I was like, "does my lock look like THAT?!?! Are you not aware of Louis Vuitton? The luggage company?!?!" They just had to flip through my stuff for fun. Anyhow, I was not pleased...
