I was always a Louis Vuitton girl for years! Growing up with my mom she was always carrying one and I never understood why she paid so much for a handbag. I was in high school so I didn't understand but after I got older it all made tons of sense. I was in love with the monograms with the classic LV symbols all over it for a while. Then after last year Celine became this big thing and I never understood the bat wings on the sides. I now love and appreciate the brand! I have a few now and I Like how much room it gives you to throw just about anything in it. This is one of my babies in RED. I am all about saving money but with certain things you need to spend money on it.
