Early on this year, we went to Stephenson's Farm boot sale and I scored a genuine Louis Vuitton 'International' wallet for the princely sum of £1. The girl who was selling it said because it was worn and battered, she just wasn't interested in keeping it, despite it being the real deal (they are currently £270!).
Obviously, I don't trifle in such whims, as long as something is serviceable, I'm happy and I knew if I left it behind someone else would soon have it.
Well, its just been sitting with my other purses doing nothing, until I thought of some very easy customisation for it. I added my blingy chain to it and voila, a lovely little posh shoulder bag which will hold money, cards and a key.
I used to have a couple of Louis Vuitton bags, but I sold them a couple of years ago on Ebay. I've just given away some bags I didn't want anymore, I've scaled right back on my bags and only kept the ones I really love. Now, I'm back on a bag buzz and can't stop browsing on Gucci and Louis Vuittons e-shopping sites!! This custom job will have to fulfill my designer itch for the moment!!
