Louis Vuitton: Galliera PM Bag/Hobo

(I had my own LV Galliera PM.  This blog entry is of my DH's Niece's Galliera PM)

This lovely Louis Vuitton Galliera PM bag was recently brought back from Hawaii by DH's niece, Tessie. She and her husband were honeymooning in Hawaii; and her new husband bought it for her as a wedding gift. What a generous guy! Our model is Jessica, my niece, who also fell in love with the bag, and would love to receive one just like it as her college graduation gift (she graduates from Nursing School this December, Lord willing). We all met up at Baby Benjamin's birthday party in Hoffman Estates.

At the same event, it was good to see my Sister-in-Law, Glenda. Best of all, we celebrate the good news of a new baby on the way for Chris and Marissa. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Louis Vuitton: Panda Key Chain or Charm

With my gorgeous LV Malesherbes Kelly Bag in Borneo Green

What a cutie-pie! Another Takashi Murakami & Louis Vuitton collaboration. I was encouraged to color this little fellow, but he's adorable just as he is. What a great, decorative, yet functional key chain or key charm. Purchased from the Louis Vuitton counter at my beloved Marshall Field's (now Macy's). Of course, LV eventually moved out and established their own store at the same shopping mall. BTW, I purchased 2 of these - back in the day when I could do so with impunity. Ha!!

Valentino: Kaleido Stone Tote Bag

~ Click on Blog Title for View of Bag at BG ~

Valentino's Kaleido Stone Tote Bag in gradient Gray. Super expensive at $2995 w/o tax. I am on the fence with this one. The design is unbelievably stunning; you won't be able to walk anywhere without drawing some sort of attention or wolf-whistle. But for the price, someone at QC was asleep. Several of the stones were only half-stitched on or had broken off. What gives, Mr Valentino Garavani??!
