Today I was truly left speechless! One of my very good friends whom I absolutely love and adore surprised me and gave me one of her vintage Louis Vuitton handbags. To say that I am over the moon is an understatement. I have not had the opportunity to find out the exact vintage of my bag but I know that it is called the Louis Vuitton Epi Sac D'Paule, and I am guessing that it is from the 1970's based upon stories I have heard.
I just love how when closed the bag takes on a more structured shape and when open it becomes a fabulous bucket bag!
Inside is a "little Louis" pouch! I use a very similar pouch for my wallet now and I am so excited to use this one as well.
The inside is lined in a beautiful olive green suede. These pictures do not do it justice but it is a gorgeous shade of green.
The embossed logo set against the incredible texture of the Epi leather.
My dear friend truly enriches my life. Her life has been and remains an incredible journey and I will forever be grateful to her for bestowing upon me this treasure. I am honored to be able to include it in my personal archives and I will forever think of her whenever I use it.
