Hey! It's been a while since I've posted here since I was living in Tokyo for 6 months. I didn't have much time to obsess about LV or money to drop on it... which I guess is a good thing. LV is indeed everywhere in Tokyo. It still shocks me how much Tokyo women take their bags out rain, shine, sleet, or typhoon (saw it!). But it just works, the patina on most bags in Tokyo is amazing! Here's a beautiful Louis Vuitton store on Omotesando which is one of the well-to-do drives of Tokyo. I couldn't resist one stop into Louis for the new A La Folie line and pick-up a pair of earrings. My visa got stamped just because of it, a Louis stamp in my passport... if only I could've kept it. These got a lot of compliments in Japan, and usually they had no idea they were LV. Most Tokyo girls are into the bags only, I saw the sought after Rose Inclusion GM and PM just sitting in a display case waiting to be bought in the Ikebukuro store ~! Now I'm back in the states and nabbed these two pieces for myself for Christmas: In comparison with the Bubble All my inclusions together My DH gave me my little piece of heaven for Christmas and got me a Chanel Black Caviar Jumbo Flap if you'd live to see pics http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel/a-very-merry-christmas-227261.html#post4791932 ...I need the grey! Happy New Year guys and girls and I hope we can collect and enjoy much more LV in '08!
