MY FIRST LOUIS VUITTON PURCHASE
I recently made my first Louis Vuitton purchase, and wanted to share a mini review with you. I plan to make a whole video on this, but for now thought I would share a brief overview.
I have always been a lover of key pouch card cases. I think it is so convenient to have your keys and cards together in one place, and be able to run into the store with just those things, and leave your big bag at home or in the car. I had been eyeing this Louis Vuitton key pouch for awhile, but always went for the more affordable designer options. I have a few from Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff, etc. that are high quality leather options, at a more affordable price. I still LOVE these and plan to keep them, but decided I was ready to splurge for the timeless classic Louis. This card case retails for $200. I feel like this is a pretty reasonable price for a Louis Vuitton piece. Some of their handbags are outrageously expensive in my opinion, but I think this was fair. The keychain itself feels nice and sturdy, and is gold plated. I’ve heard that after awhile they tend to chip, but this is to be expected when metal keys are scratching against it all day. The zipper is nice and smooth, and it actually fits a lot of cards! I went for the damier ebene print, and am so happy with my choice. I was deciding between this and the classic monogram but really love the ebene. I purchased mine from Saks in downtown Cincinnati and it was a great experience. I am already planning my next Louis purchase, so keep an eye out for that. 😉
