It worked out at the end…

For various reasons I’m not a very active blogger at the moment..

Besides being knocked out by the flu for the last couple of weeks, May and June are the most intensive months with football (I’m the coach’s «right hand» on my 10 year old’s football team ;-), we are also moving in 3 or 4 weeks and the house is a mess. Well, actually both houses are a mess at the moment, but hopefully that will change soon..

Anyhow – I’ve had the time to have a back and forth with Louis Vuitton..

I got the Charm It bracelet from my fiancé for Valentines day last year and as beautiful as it is – it’s been a disappointment.. First the charms kept falling off and at the end I just gave up and wore it without them. Then the lock fell of the leather band 3 times and I went to the store and wanted the money back. But they insisted on sending it to Paris for a repair(!) and I waited for about 5 weeks until I finally got it back. They also forgot to send it back to me when it came back to the store in Oslo so I had to ask for it twice.

Then I got the notice in the mail that it had arrived the postoffice and I went to get it; 

I could almost not believe my eyes! They had sent it back and forgot to put in the srew on the lock without charms…. That was the reason it was sent to Paris!

I could easily pull the golden part off the leather band and now I was quite upset…

I then wrote an email back to LV in Oslo telling them exactly what I meant about the whole experience with this bracelet and not long after they called me…

Today I returned the bracelet in the same envelope it came back in – AND I got the money back – or to put it this way – they let me put the money in the bag I wanted for my birthday 😀

That turned out to be the perfect solution!

Next week I’ll show you the bag when it arrives 😉

Louis Vuitton Monogram Thames

This small and beautiful LV bag is perfect when your out and don’t need to carry to much with you – but when that said it holds surprisingly much. It didn’t suit my non glamorous life though and I sold it… Now for my birthday I’ve laid my eyes on another Louis Vuitton bag that can be both glamorous (if I need that once in a while) and casual for an everyday life.

I’ll show you my birthday wish in the next post 😉

SOLD #2

Here’s a couple of more bags and wallets that I’ve sold over the last months..

I forgot that I had this post that I wrote a few days ago 🙂

Many of you will probably think it was crazy to sell these two pieces, and if I was a «multimillionaire» I would probably keep them in my new wardrobe with glass doors as trophies – just like others buy expensive art and put on their walls ;-)…. But I don’t feel I have that much money –  and I’m not attending a lot of cocktail parties or premieres (read: NONE..) either, I’m not that often on trips that would make it nice to wear this piece of art and it doesn’t feel natural wearing it at my work … Most of the time I’m at home, at work, in the mountains with my family,  at the football practice with one of my sons in wind and rain or family gatherings with my parents, brothers and sister….

Enough said (to convince myself that it was no good keeping them..)  – I hope the girls that bought them use them A LOT and take good care of them… 🙂

Regrets – of course – I had planned that my daughter was going to inherit them – but at the end I sleep very well at night after all 😉

SOLD – Louis Vuitton Make up pouch

Regrets – yes a little – and it might be that I buy a new one exactly the same… When I sold it I was desperate about another bag and I sold many things to justify that purchase – as well….

SOLD – Balenciaga coin purse

Regrets – no – I have the Bal Click 😉

To be continued!….

SOLD #1 – I’ve been good – for a change…

So I’ve mentioned that my goal this year is to sell bags that I don’t use and just have left one messenger, one satchel, one clutch/pochette and one shoulder bag… So I’ve sold a few…

With the house project it’s a little bit difficult to justify having bags that I want to keep just because they’re beautiful to look at.

SOLD – Balenciaga Day in Sanguine

Do I regret – yes… That was the only bag I had in another color than black and dark brown. It was a bag that no one I know have and it was in perfect condition. I need a bag in red….

SOLD – Balenciaga  iPhone case

Regrets – NO – I don’t have an iPhone anymore and it’s way to small for the Galaxy Note 😀

SOLD – Louis Vuitton Speedy 35, matching wallet and iPhone….

Do I regret – NO

The Speedy is classic and iconic – but not a practical bag for me so selling it was ok, the wallet as well as I bought another one I liked better. I’ve even sold the iPhone to finance the Galaxy 😉

SOLD – Louis Vuitton MC zippy coin purse

Regrets – No! Sweet, but not my cup of tea…

SOLD – Mulberry Somerset Tote

Do I regret – a little as it was a great bag to carry all the stuff for my youngest (Changes of clothes, diapers etc, but she doesn’t need that much anymore so it’s ok..)

 SOLD – Mulberry Regular Alexa

Do I regret – No!

I was dying to get this bag, but it wasn’t for me and selling it was no problem.

Modeling pictures wearing my Louis Vuitton Palermo PM

This has been a blog free long weekend and it’s been quite nice..

We’ve had friends over both Thursday and Friday, Saturday we went to the mountains for an event at Tyrihans/Kvitfjell with my fiancees work;

We had a competition on snow-racers, we got «Gløgg» and the best Pizza & Salad 🙂

Here’s a collage with pictures wearing my dear Louis Vuitton Palermo PM – love it ❤

Hope you all have had a really nice weekend ❤

My Christmas present to my fiancee – Louis Vuitton Key Pouch in Taiga

Illustration photo from Louis Vuitton

My fiancee was constantly looking for his keys, his wallet and his cards….

So this one holds it all in one place – and he doesn’t have to run around the house every time he’s off to work 😉

My fiancee is not a typical LV boy – at all….. So I thought if he didn’t want to use it I could definitely use it for something 😉 But luckily he liked it (I think..) and he has used it every day since christmas!

My collection 3 – Louis Vuitton Marie Wallet

This is the Marie Wallet with red interior. I have a few wallets, but this has definitely become my favorite. The size is a big plus as it fits as easily in a small bag as in a big bag – and it’s easy to get to the coins and the cards.

The price was not too bad either (compared to other LV wallets that is.. ;-)) and it cost $345 (2600 NOK). At least it could be possible to save up the money if you really want it!

I bought it on a trip to Edinburgh were I bought a couple of other things as well. This was the first time I used the form for Tax Refund and about a month later I got the Tax refund paid into my bank account! 🙂
