Well this beauty is most definitely the biggest impulse purchase I have ever had in. my .life. I knew there was no going back as I placed my card into the chip and pin not to mention the fact that my flight home a few hours later!
Everyone deserves a treat right? I like to 'treat' myself to something when I go on holiday every year and this is the most recent purchase. When I initially saw it I didn't like it to be honest, I thought it was an impractical 'in-between' size. Too large to be a clutch bag and too small to carry on your shoulder! I left it down and told the girl that 'I'd have a think about it' - That's what we all say when we need to make a quick exit right?
I thought about it the next day again and headed down to the store for another look (why oh why was the hotel a 5 minute walk from Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel and every other designer shop you could think of?!). I tried it on like a cross-body bag and placed my purse inside it to see how it would fit. I looked in the mirror and it was love at... second sight...
I don't know what it was, I went from not liking it to loving it in 24 hours. Either that or the sales assistant was really good at her job! I have three Louis handbags and they are all pretty casual (except for my Speedy 30 which I think can be dressed up nicely) so the Favorite MM is nice for nights out when I don't need to take everything plus the kitchen sink with me. (There is also a smaller version called the Favorite PM). My purse and phone fits perfectly inside it, the gold chain is so eye-catching (this doubles up as a second strap if you want a shorter shoulder bag) and it sits close to your body so it isn't bulky looking.
Before I knew it I was nodding my head and I'll never see that £555 again. You know what they say though, it's an 'investment piece', 'i'll have it for life' - Who am I kidding, the amount of false justifications I give myself for impulse purchases is ridiculous!

Made from the gorgeous 'LV' monogram printed leather, with looped long strap and magnetic closure - it truly is a beautiful handbag. Not going to lie, I do polish and buff the gold detailing at the front. Sad I know... I also wear it when I'm wearing head to toe black, it doesn't match at all but oh well!
