1ST TIME LOUIE OWNER

Back when I was in Portland, I stopped at the Louis Vuitton store to buy my very first Louie bag.

Today, I am discussing my experience at the LV store, and my experience owning the bag for a month. You wouldn't think owning a big designer brand bag would change your mood, but for me it sure has. I feel more confident carrying my speedy. When I look at myself walking by with the bag or looking down at my arm, I feel a rush of endorphins.

I've dreamed of owning this bag since I was a little girl, and now that little girl's dreams have come true. And even after just this purchase, I am already a Louis Vuitton addict. Take a look at my ultimate purchase I've ever made. Also, I'm including a product I carry inside, so check it out.

Take a look at my Louis Vuitton Speedy 25

When I walked in I let my sales consultant know that this was my first time buying a Louis Vuitton and I know the exact bag I want to buy. She brought out sparkling water, only because they were out of champagne, which was really disappointing but I found out later that they make sure champagne is on hand for those who make appointments. So if you are planning on buying a Louie, make sure to book an appointment to score some bubbly.

Here I am looking at "purchase add-ons", which is what I call items you weren't exactly planning on buying. Right here we are looking at bag charms. This is Destiny, my personal shopping consultant. She was so helpful and amazing. She also showed me about 100 wallets to purchase to match my bag as well. (I'll show the wallet on another blog post)  She was super honest and not too sales like. She asked questions on what I like and don't like about wallets. She was very honest about the wallets she thought wouldn't work with my everyday buying habits. I am very happy with the wallet I ended up purchasing.

Here I am signing my life away for the biggest purchase, besides a car, I have ever made. But it is so worth it. The confidence this bag gives you is life changing, which seems silly, but this bag makes me so proud of myself and where I am in my life at my age. It reminds me that hard work does pay off, and you should definitely reward yourself once and awhile.  This bag definitely comes with positive and negative comments from others, of course. My advice is don't feel bad or too boujee for buying a Louis Vuitton bag, when those around you can't. Be proud of yourself that you are the one who can afford it, and if the bag is a gift, never apologize for being spoiled. That is the greatest advice I could give you, never feel bad for what God gives you in the life. You only get to live it once, so be boujee, be confident, and be proud of your accomplishments.

Here is my speedy 1 month after purchasing. I knew that the speedy bag does sag but it started sagging faster than I thought. Destiny let me know that there are shapers for this bag and that I could find one on amazon.  Check out the after picture below with the bag shaper inside.

You can definitely see the sagging of the painted canvas. Such a sad sight.

After picture with the shaper and no more sagging. If you own or are planning on owning a Louie bag, make sure to shop my shaper. It can be used in all Louis Vuitton bags that are known to sag.  Also the shaper comes with multiple pockets and an organizer adder to go inside of it. I love knowing that I could quickly reach inside my bag and easily find and pull out whatever it is that I'm looking for at that moment.  Shop my Louie shaper,  here .
