In all my excitement over my new Belmont purchase and preloved Eclipse alma bb purchase, I forgot I purchased another something new with my Belmont... And since I had to rearrange my purse closet, i decided to take updated pics of my collection.

First here is my reveal!

A Marie-Lou compact wallet in Epi Fuschia! I needed a smaller wallet when I travel, but larger than a zippy coin. This design is so great. Even the SA commented that this design is so well thought out.

Now, pictures of my collection so far. I have not included a few purses and slg's that I am planning on selling, and I didn't include my Vernis pieces... I got tired. My pictures get blurrier and blurrier... Anyway, let's start with my mono pieces.

Totally PM, zippy coin, Milla mm, and Marly Bandouliere (this was my very first LV purchased back in the mid-80's). I realize I don't have many mono pieces. I think I really need the metis pochette on my wish list.

Here are my Damier pieces. DE ismy go to pattern - so carefree, doesn't scream LV, very work appropriate. I just started adding in DA, so pretty and bright. I used my Totally PM DA allllll summer!

Top L-R: Cabas Rivington, Totally PM, Bloomsbury GM
Bottom L-R: Ravello PM, Milla MM, Eva, business card holder, long wallet (don't know the exact names for these), Belmont

I think the Ravello was my 2nd purchase while in college in the 90's. I still use it for work interviews and meetings as the style is still fresh. I purchased an Eva vachetta strap for my DA Milla to wear crossbody, but the Eva strap is too long. So I bought a chain that is shorter recommended on the "pochette" clubhouse thread. It should be here this week just in time to take my Eva on vacation to Kauai!

My Epi pieces... I love Epi. Also perfect for work as it is subtle LV.

Madeleine GM Ivoire, Marie-Lou compact wallet fuschia, and Montaigne Grenade.

I first purchased a preloved Madeleine PM Ivoire but it proved to be a bit small. I also have a Honfleur pochette in black Epi, but they are both in my "to sell" pile (Mods - I am not selling here on TPF!). I had to make room for the pieces I love more...

oh my... I LOVE Epi Electric! So shiny, so gorgeous. I keep hoping LV will make more colors in Electric.

Alma PM Prune, Zippy Coin Purse Noir, Zippy Wallet Noir, Joey Wallet Noir, Brea MM Noir.

I find the Electric to be too shiny for my workplace, but I just can't help myself in buying. I take them out for evening work meetings, or fancy dinners. I love the prune with black dresses, just a pop of color. I even bought shoes in patent burgundy that match! I have to add the Alma PM Amande Electric to my wish list.

My Speedys. I went through a few years of not buying LV, so when I started looking at LV's again in 2011, I wanted something iconic. I know... Speedy in Mono, how more iconic can you get? But the vachette handles scare me, and I prefer shoulder and crossbody over hand helds. So, I was excited to find the Speedy B 30 Idylle Fusain. The Fusain is much more subtle than mono for work, and the strap... love crossbody. I used it for almost a year and it looks good as new.

Then came the Speedy B 25 in Empreinte. Although it later came in 30, I'm glad I have the smaller 25 as its a bit different from my other Speedys. I then found the LE Mirage Noir preloved. So not on my radar, but it was love at first sight.

Speedy 30 Mirage Noir, B 25 Empreinte Infini, B 30 Idylle Fusain.

My Alma BB's: Vernis Rayures Amarante LE and Monogram Eclipse LE.

So cute! I am so happy I purchased the Vernis Rayures Amarante. This was my first Limited Edition. I didn't know what LE were but when this came out, I loved the stripes. Then the BB Eclipse LE became my obsession to own. Too late to the party, I had to find it preloved. Finally just got it! I'm still obsessed.
