FASHION, Louis Vuitton, Uncategorized LOUIS VUITTON SILK SCARF & FRAMBOISE KOALA WALLET 7 July 2006

Went for a bit of shopping today.. I’ve recently become quite fascinated (okay, obsessed) with scarves. Decided I wanted a long-ish skinny one that I could also use as a belt, or around my neck if it’s cold. Went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and they had the most perfect blue one – the Fleur de Porcelaine Bandeau! It’s limited edition so I was surprised the store still had it.. Was also eyeing a multicolour/rainbow one and just couldn’t decide, but Chris (he met me in the City after work) decidedly said that the blue one was better, by far, so I got it πŸ˜€ It’s all pretty and silky and will make a nice belt, since I don’t really own any belts! Plus it’ll wrap twice around my neck to keep me warm in winter.. so technically it’s like getting 2 things for the price of one πŸ˜‰

Also, I saw the Louis Vuitton koala wallet when it was launched a few months ago and thought it was adorable, but it only came in the Monogram design (or at least the store only had that design). Recently, found out that it’s now in Vernis too, more specifically – Framboise! I’m on this mad mission to collect all the Framboise coloured accessories.. the pink is divine – so totally unashamedly girly πŸ™‚

Anyway, I’ve been using the Framoise Ludlow for my notes and coins and my main cards, and the Framboise cles for the rest of my cards. Decided I wanted to consolidate.. so the Framboise Koala was a winner! It was a toss-up between that or the Framboise French Purse.. but I already have one of those (in Indigo, though) and the Koala’s gold clasp just had me sold πŸ˜› I really like it! It makes a solid purse and has tons of card pockets and space. Nice πŸ™‚ Plus the pink really *pops* and it makes me smile when I look at it – such a cheery colour!

      I think it’s nicer than the other wallets just because of the cute clasp!

      Nah, I’m going to use it mainly as a belt or a scarf.. and perhaps tied on my bag. I think it looks funny in my hair

    Oohhh I LOVE the koala wallet! The vernis ones look really gorgeous (esp. the framboise just like yours!) but a lot of people have been saying not-so-good things about the vernis leather (colour transfer issue, scratches easily, etc) so I think I prefer it in the Epi leather πŸ˜‰

    Reply
    • beverly posted on July 7, 2006 at 10:59 pm

      I find the vernis is really sturdy, but the white/light ones can get colour transfer in hot/humid weather and if you put it on a dark object.
      With the Epi leather I find it really flat and a bit plain, like you could get it from another leather store (for a lot cheaper!), so I prefer Vernis as it’s really unique, esp the colour πŸ™‚ BUT a lot of people love Epi so it’s just personal preference!

      The wallet feels all ‘meaty’ in my hand, if that makes sense πŸ˜› Like a proper filled wallet instead of the teeny ludlow – so it’s a nice change!

    I love the scarf and also the Koala wallet (esp. the clasp). I was trying to see if I could spot some koala designs on the wallet but couldn’t find any. It would have been really cute to have koala imprints.

      Awww yeah, little koala imprints on the inside of the wallet would’ve been adorable! I just saw an Epi black one pop up on ebay, from “let-trade”.. but yeah, I don’t see the Koalas in stores or online that often

    And the purse is divine!!
