I told someone today, "I love your empreinte bag," and

  1. she remarked, "oh, excuse me, it's Louis Vuitton." :roflmfao:

    I know empreinte is terminology the average customer wouldn't use, but I knew my TPF folks would find it funny. I said it because I couldn't remember the actual bag name, but it was the Montaigne. It looked lovely on her!
     
  2. Hahahahha....that so cute of her.....lol

    Hehe! And that is such a pretty bag! She has some pretty good taste! :biggrin:
     
  4. It is. Canvas bags are a dime-a-dozen here, but leather LVs are rarely seen.
     
  5. Did you explain anything to her? haha
     

  6. Lol! that is funny...sometimes i feel like i am talking a whole
    other language when discussing LV items haha
     
  7. Haha, no, just left it at "oh, it's beautiful!"
     
  8. Other than my country club, where I see several LV bags, Louis Vuitton is very rare in my city. Whenever I see any LV bag or SLG around the town, my heart flutters a bit!
     
  9. Haha. The other day I told a woman that I loved her Delightful and she looked at me like I was crazy. "My WHAT?!". "ER...your bag is called the Delightful." She looked at me like I had two heads.
     
  10. Haha! I have been in a similar situation. Now I just stick to "I love your Louis" in order to avoid awkward moments. I often forget that non-tpf members also buy LV! 😬
     
  11. Priceless 😭
     
  12. Haha I had a similar thing with a coworker. 'Is that the Emilie wallet?' (I have one too). And she got flustered explains it was LV and was a gift. Haha. I felt like a purse nerd.
     
  13. Very funny!
     
  14. I know what you mean. You get so used to speaking "Vuittonese" that after a while you forget that you're doing it.
     
  15. Often, I forget that people outside of TPF don't pay a lot of attention to style names and colors of bags. One of my personal pet peeves is when I see poorly listed items like a Berkeley being listed as a Damier satchel, etc.
