FASHION, Louis Vuitton, Shopping, Uncategorized LOUIS VUITTON ‘ONATAH’ HOBO BAG 29 June 2010

Got the Louis Vuitton “onatah” hobo bag, in Aubergine colour 🙂

I actually got it quite a few weeks ago, but never got round to posting about it! Louis Vuitton don’t usually make really soft/slouchy leather bags (at least not like the way Balenciaga does) so for awhile I lost interest in the brand.

I really like the Aubergine colour, a rich deep eggplant that surprisingly works with most outfits. It sits really comfortably on my shoulder (doesn’t slip off) and is so buttery soft and slouchy, yay!! The feel of it is lovely 🙂 It’s surprisingly roomy inside as well, and fits in my purse organiser so I don’t have to dig around for whatever I’m looking for.

Since I bought it though, I’ve made the decision to “shop less, save more”. And I know that since it’s a discontinued style and in new condition, it will sell well. So I may sell it in a few months… and get the cash instead!


Louis Vuitton “onatah” hobo bag

Smooshy!

I like the sturdy fabric strap

The LV logo looks obvious like this, but in real life it’s so subtle it’s almost invisible 🙂

With my purse organiser inside

A nice size on me, I reckon!

    Wow, that is a gorgeous colour! I love how subtle (and amazingly soft) the mahina leather is.

    My sister and I are waiting for our newest mahina to come in, have you seen the new stellars? We’re definitely in love with the blue one.. 😀

      Same here.. and it gets smooshier with age 🙂

      Fortunately the Stellar size and shape doesn’t appeal to me, the Anthracite colour is sooo gorgeous though

    I think Viv has the same bag. It’s also the only LV bag that I actually quite like coz the monogram isn’t obvious.

      Ya! Oh do you like the Epi leather stuff? It all has no monogram at all, except for a small embossed one in one corner. The damier canvas also has no monogram..

        Epi is ok, as is Vernis. I don’t like the damier though. I think in general I am just not a LV fan. Heh.

    You and your slouchy bags ahahhaa! I can relate; I do love soft leather -really can’t stand the tough sort. Recently, I bought myself a turquoise leather bag as a way to liven up my wardrobe with some colour; you could say I’m the exact opposite dresser to you haha.
    Check out my (depressing to you I’m sure) dark dark, dull outfit 😛

    I love how slouchy it is, so unlike LV. With me, I never think about resale value of the items I buy, because I always keep things forever or until they are totally trashed.

    • beverly posted on June 30, 2010 at 1:49 am

      Yeah, it’s what grabbed my attention.. I hardly see them do truly slouchy/soft bags so this was a winner!

    I love the purple colour! And that blue thingy in your bag, is it something separate that you bought to put stuff in?

    If it is, I really need to find one!! I sometimes feel like my Jack russell trying to dig through the stuff in my bag to find things!!

      Loewe is just divine.. I always keep eyeing their bags, but I’m worried about how ‘open’ they are at the top and that i’ll ruin the leather!

      Thanks sweetie! I don’t really know of consignment stores.. never really been to ’em in Shanghai, but just happened to see this.

      Luxury goods is super $$ in Shanghai as you know, so I usually wait until my business trips and buy in USA, Singapore, Hong Kong.. much cheaper 🙂

      PS. welcome to Shangers!! So fun to have a fellow foodie and fashionista around
