The last time I bought a LV item, it was when eLuxury.com was around. I used to be a real pro at identifying the fakes from the real ones. That was because I used to resell them.
Louis Vuitton handbags and accessories NEVER go on sale. Remember that. Another thing is that the price of an LV handbag usually increases in price once a year by $20 to even $100+
In 2002, I bought the LV Monogram Canvas Pochette Accessoires for $185.00. In 2011, it costs $385.00. That means every year, this handbag went up an average of $22 more.
If you are planning to purchase a LV purse on Craigslist or Ebay, check out My Poupette. She knows a lot about LV bags and she also authenticates them. Over ten years ago, I bought her guide on how to tell fake LVs. It has invaluable information. Her guide is a must have if you collect or plan on collecting LV bags.
Besides the Pochette Accessoires, I have the Monogram Canvas Zippy Wallet. I don’t use LV as much as Coach. I admire the LV styles. There many designs that I want. Too bad it costs so much. Most women love shoes. I love handbags. But I am determined not to buy a handbag over $500. The most expensive purse I own is a Fendi Mini Satchel I purchase from Bluefly.com for $495.00.
Even if I won’t buy a Louis Vuitton, it doesn’t mean I can’t look. Here are my favorite LV Handbags:
