Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Categories:Louis Vuitton

You will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight as you get older. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini pieces (speedy, noe, alma), there was the mini version of the Monogram Dora.

Nano Dora is a very cute, structured nano bag. But the price is already at par with that of a regular sized Speedy! Would you rather go with this adorable little bag or would you pay for the larger Speedy?

The Monogram Nano Dora can fit a card case, your phone, a lipstick, a powder compact, and probably a pair of sunnies, though I won’t exactly push it only because I don’t know how squished it might get inside with all your other things. But it definitely fits

I would probably buy this bag if I have a lot of $$$, but hah since I am currently cutting down on the stuff that has cluttered my closet, I will just save my money for something else

And speaking of clutter, I decided to put up a group on Facebook called THE CLOSET RAIDERS. This is an online bulletin board for everyone to post CLOTHES and SHOES (no bags or wallets please– if you have a designer bag *worth over PhP 10K, send me a PM on instagram.com/shopthebaghag for consignment) that they no longer use or wear. I have a lot of stuff I will post in the next month, after I get back from my fashion week travels. It is a closed group so please ask to be added

Louis Vuitton F/W16 Monogram Canvas Supple Rigid Bag

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

The name is in itself an oxymoron. How is a bag possibly supple and rigid all at once? Well, anything’s possible as far as Louis Vuitton is concerned, and with their F/W16Monogram Canvas Supple Rigid Bag, it’s truly both hard and soft at the same time.

Well I don’t have the full info on this curious beauty just yet, this is what I know. Made to look like a trunk which of course Louis Vuitton is perhaps best-known for, it’s hard on top (where the trunk’s lid and handle is) and soft on the bottom (where you see the ‘soft’ Monogram Canvas). Priced at SGD7500, you could say this is another unique addition to the French luxury house after the successful launch of the Petite Malle some seasons back.

And while I don’t have the full info on this piece (or other pieces that will available in this shape but in different finishes), here’s a close-up of the Supple Rigid Bag’s gorgeous lock situation. More updates, to come.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Replica Pochette Metis And A New AliExpress Seller To Follow!

Categories:Louis Vuitton

I always say that cheap replicas usually come with a cost. The cost of them not being high-quality. But there are some exceptions to this rule and this Louis Vuitton Monogram replica Pochette Metis is one of them.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Replica Pochette Metis From AliExpress

Just like affordable yet good replica bags are hard but not impossible to find, the same thing applies to AliExpress sellers as well. The good ones are rare but they’re there!

It’s true, LV replica handbags made of canvas should be cheaper than those made of leather. But as you’ve seen in the past, many people complain that the canvas is either too thin, it doesn’t have the right texture or the colors are not like the original. So just because it’s cheaper it doesn’t mean all bags made of Louis Vuitton Monogram replica canvas look the same or cost the same.

Some of my readers have been following my blog for years now and they’re people whose opinion I really trust. They know a lot about bags in general, so any review they send is full of precious information and replica insights. And the friend who sent this LV Pochette Metis review is one of them. Thank you again for sending your reviews, I really appreciate it! 

“Hi Eva!

I recently bought two replica bags from a new seller called Andy Yang on AliExpress.
Here is my review of the Pochette Metis. He has two versions, this is the “normal” one and the difference between this one and the best quality is that here it is alloy metal hardware and the other one is “solid metal”.

Anyway, I paid $146 with shipping for this one with EMS and it took 9 days to arrive. It was very well packed in bubblewrap and stuffed to keep its shape and Andy has Whatsapp so the communication was top notch and he sent detailed preshipping photos as well. The only con was that it had a chemical smell but after airing the bag for 4 hours it went away easily.

All the stamps and logos are very crisp and in the right places, the datecode is correct (DU2154). The vachetta will patina and I put it in sunlight and can already see a difference in color. I also compared the canvas with my authentic Mini Pochette and Adele wallet and it is spot on, I have attached a picture of this as well.

The bag came with a dustbag, care booklet and LV receipt. I am super happy with this purchase and strongly recommend this seller and will absolutely buy from him again.

I would love to hear you opinion Eva :)

Louis Vuitton Monogram Replica Canvas Compared With The Original

Here is my feedback on the Louis Vuitton Monogram replica Pochette Metis:

I don’t know how you do it but you always find cheap replica bags that look great and this Louis Vuitton replica bag is no exception! In my opinion the hardware engravings are not as crisp and clear as the original but they are all in the right places for sure. I’m not going to go into details like the font that was used for the datecode because that really is not important. What’s important is that the canvas looks so similar to the authentic! But there is a slight difference though: the replica canvas looks a bit duller than the real one which is a bit shinier.

I also asked my friend about the texture and the thickness of the Louis Vuitton Monogram replica canvas and I also wanted to know about another thing I didn’t get: the bottom of the bag looked like it had two edges. I will attach a photo for you to understand what I mean:

I also had two more questions my dear friend was kind enough to respond to:

1. You seem to be sure that the vachetta will patina, so I understand that it’s made of real leather. Is that correct?
2. How long is the shoulder strap of this Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis?

“The canvas is “grained” and bumpy just like the original and quite thick, I have compared it with my mini pochette, Neverfull and Adele Wallet. It seems very durable and the leather has already started to patina because I put it in the sun for a day.

I even went in to the LV store the other day while carrying it and the SM who is a friend of mine handled it and said it was beautiful, he couldn’t tell it was replica for sure.

As for the second edge at the bottom it is just the front pouch that bulges out because I had items in the bag :)

I don’t have the measurements of the shoulder strap but it just like the original I compared :)

So the bag passed the test even after being compared with the authentic Mini Pochette Louis Vuitton review!

All in all I think this is a very nice Louis Vuitton Monogram replica Pochette Metis and very affordable too! I’m also impressed by the skills some of you have to pick only the trustworthy AliExpress sellers but what I’m really excited about is that you guys are also willing to share your experiences with other replica handbags lovers! I’m sure this Pochette Metis review will help other replica lovers.

How To Clean And Care Your Louis Vuitton Alma Bag in Monogram Canvas

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis-vuitton-alma-bag-care-clean-maintenance

Yesterday we stole a couple of hours of Victoria’s time and ask her everything about cleaning and caring designer handbags. Because we noticed that she has already been infected by ‘bag obsession’ (no cure for that, I guarantee), we needed her to share some real-life experience. We took her favorite Louis Vuitton Alma Bag as an example; ‘Victoria, please tell us your story!’

I purchased this Louis Vuitton Alma bag because I am OBSESSED with handbags and Louis Vuitton, the Alma is such a classic bag for any person of any age and in my opinion one of the top classics in the LV collection.

My shopping experience with Louis Vuitton is always amazing, I always shop at my home store which is in the United States in Florida at the International Mall in Tampa. They are always so welcoming and helpful.

I purchased the Alma I believe in Tampa, Florida that is where most my Louis’ are purchased!

I think I purchased this bag about 5 -6 years ago or probably more than that! The retail price then I believe it was a little over 1000 I believe? now I believe it currently retails for 1500.

Why did you choose this leather and what is your experience so far?
Louis Vuitton Monogram is the first and top styles to come in most bags, the far most popular to really say “ I am carrying a Louis Vuitton” when I first purchased the Alma they did not carry it in the Damier Ebene, vernis. ☹

Have you accidentally damaged your bag so far? If so, then what was your initial response and how did you resolve it?
OH my! This is a big one, I am soo protective over all my handbags, they are expensive bags and to not take care of them is so upsetting. In Florida in rains constantly, I constantly and putting them under my shirts if I don’t have an umbrella or find a plastic bag to shove them in! I had once got the bottom wet, my little brother put my bag on the floor of a restaurant ( YES HE DID) I don’t ever do that, and of course… it was slightly wet.

In which occasion do you often use this bag? (as an everyday?)
I only use this bag maybe every other month for a week. I frequently change out my handbags, and working in an office environment I sometimes don’t like bringing my high end bags.

What do you do to maintain your bag?
I always keep my handbags in the original dust bag this is a must! It keeps it from getting moisture in or any dust bunnies or anything that likes to hide! I also keep stuffing inside the bags so it doesn’t loose its shape!

Do you use any products? If so, then what are the products and prices? Also how often do you maintain your bag and how do you put these products in use?
I do use products, I love the Kate Spade Conditioner and leather cleaner they are both available for only $10 a piece on Kate Spades web site! I usually clean my bags every 2 months or so, but definitely before and after I use the handbag!

Have you tried any products that didn’t work out in the past?
I haven’t had any bad luck with products, all I can suggest is make sure you use LEATHER cleaner, some people just use soap and water never do that!

Where and how do you store your bag?
I store my bag in my handbag containers which is actually in it’s physical dust bag. I never keep it out of the dustbag unless I am using it… I actually think when I am using it at night I put it back in the dust bag. ☺

Do you have any more tips and advices for newbies?
Love your handbags! They are expensive pieces but they can last forever, take care of them and if you ever have questions ask! Bring them into someone to clean if you don’t trust yourself. Most Louis Vuitton stores have people they recommend to send the handbags too!
