**Warning: this is going to be a VERY photo heavy post!** Following on from my ‘Battle of the BBs‘ post a couple of weeks ago, I present to you my new Louis Vuitton Alma BB in Damier Ebene (DE)! After filming my reveal video on Saturday, I took her out for a spin on Sunday for a belated birthday lunch for my mum (we went for the Dim Sum Sunday menu at Hakkasan – highly recommended!) and I absolutely loved using it. With some bags, I find it takes a while to know whether they’re going to be a good fit… with others, you know right away.
I not only love the look of this little bag (way more than I ever thought I would!) but I love the practicality. I sling it on my shoulder and go – if I need to be completely hands/care-free, I’ll wear it crossbody or if I need to grab it quickly, I’ll reach for it by the handle. The strap is neither too long nor too short, and when I do grab it by the handles, the strap is sturdy enough not to flop down and get in the way. Such a perfectly formed, perfectly practical little bag!
After having used it for a day, I’m convinced I made the right decision with regards to the colour/ pattern. I rush-picked my outfit on Sunday after having gotten carried away with some editing in the morning. My outfit was simple enough – a quilted white skirt with a black cashmere sweater and black tights teamed with ankle boots and a camel coat. Had I have bought the rose nacre epi, I know it wouldn’t have looked right – despite the apparent neutrality of my outfit. The damier ebene however, was perfect – practical enough to be seen as a winter-weather bag whilst being luxe enough with all those gorgeous gold accents to look appropriate at a fancy lunch.
Below are the full set of pics I took at the LV boutique 🙂
And here’s the one that wasn’t meant to be 🙂 (can you spot the incredibly bored looking SA in the background?!!).
And finally my reveal video 🙂
It might be a little too early to declare this one a winner, but I am most definitely in the honeymoon phase right now 🙂
