LV shopping and Marie visits

This afternoon, I went out on my own to buy my new lovely Louis Vuitton LV Monogram Cabas Mezzo. It's such a beautiful bag and I love it! Now I am in the middle of debating if I should sell my Damier Speedy 30 to cover some of the costs of my new bag. But I am still quite attached to my Speedy and it is a great bag, not too large and not too small, perfect mid sized handbag for those days where I might just need it. The only thing I do not love about this bag is the fact that it is a hand carry. Should straps are not an option. But it is in such perfect brand new condition that I am not sure if I really really want to sell it. But if I do, well let's say it will replenish my bank account a little. Oh well, I will have to think about it over the weekend. (Trishaopholic for photos)

My dear friend, Marie aka Socabutterfly came by this afternoon for a visit. I have not seen her in way too many weeks and this is a long overdue visit. I am working on a craft project for her and she had not given me any ideas on the colour scheme or the board size in which she wanted. So today, she finally made her choices in colours and size. I am making her a necklace board just like the one I have for myself. I also had made one for my dear friend, Jen and I figured why not make another one as I still have a couple of boards left and am not quite sure what I can do with them. During Marie's visit she noticed my newest LV purchase and was in awe at the beauty of the bag. She drooled all over my new beautiful bag but her jaws dropped when I told her how much it cost. In her mind, she could not justify spending that amount of money on a bag or wallet for herself. I showed her the rest of my collection and believe it or not, we talked about LV for three hours! Yes, 3 hours! Would you believe it if I stated that I was able to change her mind about the $$ and designer? Yep, I changed another one of my friends over to Louis Vuitton. Hehehe, I am such a bad influence!

It was of course, not all me, I have to say, Guess and Nine West helped me out a bit. She told me how it took her almost 7 - 10 days to justify spending $50 on a Guess wallet and her Nine West handbag from Winners was on sale with a sticker price of $70 but regular $100. I pointed out the construction of her wallet and she is now going to start saving her change to buy herself a new wallet, a new Louis Vuitton wallet :) By her 40th birthday, she is going to buy herself a nice beautiful Louis Vuitton handbag. I told her to be sure to take me with her when she does her Louis Vuitton shopping!

I was going to make dinner for her but since we were sitting around my living room, talking and looking in the catalogue / internet at the Louis Vuitton items, we decided it was probably best that we head out for dinner. We caught up on life at Sala Thai - no more LV talk! It was a really great night and I am so happy to have spent some time with my dear friend Marie.

I can not believe you convinced her to purchase an LV bag. You are such a bad influence.
