As most of you know I am listing this for sale on behalf of my mother. She has used this bag for a few years now and really wants to upgrade to the LV Alma Damier (so the money will be going towards that purchase.) The bag is 100% Authentic and will come with Dustbag. Handles bear the brunt of the wear as can be seen in the photo. They have developed a deep patina and have softened over time. As most of you know this is just part of the vachetta aging process. Some people like it, others do not. It's really just a preference.
Leather parts (handles, piping, etc.) can be replaced on LV bags but you need to bring it into an LV store to be given an estimate. This bag should really go to someone that does not mind patina because it is often very expensive to have the leather replaced.
Interior is clean, no scuffs, rips, tears, or anything of that nature on the bag. Hardware shows normal wear. (I will try and post more pictures here but they will also be available by requests from serious buyers.
Date Code is: VI2180
(which means this bag was made the 28th week of 2010)
I will be accepting best offer as usual (Please have reasonable expectations - this bag won't be selling for $500 etc. If you've ever looked at what bags with patina sell for on Hautelook you will understand why on the pricing.)
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will accept PayPal for this particular transaction.
(I will give out the PP address when we have agreed on terms.)
Keep checking back here for photo updates - I'll try and post more up tonight - I just wanted to go ahead and get this up because my mom has been asking me about it >_<
Thanks so much for your interest and support! I appreciate it.
(I also have a few pairs of Louboutins I may be listing here as well. You can check out my PoshMark Closet for a preview - prices would be lower if you wanted to buy through PayPal (which would be my preference) so if you see anything feel free to email me about pricing on any of those as well.)
I meant to post this up last week since I haven't really seen anyone talk about it but I wanted to show you all the difference between the NEW Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120mm and the Pigalle 120mm we are all use to.
I ordered these when I saw them go up on the site and wanted to give them a try due to the new color (Neptune). Went ahead and ordered my normal 36.5 (6.5) size as Pigalles use to run about a 1/2 size large and much to my surprise I could NOT get my foot inside these! Now I know patent stretches a lot especially Louboutin patent but this was ridiculous.
Of course couldn't compare these to my broken in Pigalle 120mm because after you wear them the whole shape of the back and toe box changes so I grabbed a New In Box pair that I had in my closet and was blown away by the differences.
I'll stop talking now and let you see for yourself but for reference these are the same style shoe, same size. Normally color does not make a difference in how these shoes run as I have them in a few different colors and materials. I believe they have re-designed them to fit more like the increasingly popular So Kate 120mm and have fitted them with more true to size measurements. On the site under fit suggestion for the Pigalle 120mm it use to say to 'size down as this style runs large', not it says 'fits true to size'.
Both pairs were purchased from the Christian Louboutin website just at different times. Personally from what I can see I like the old design a bit better but I will need to try them in my true size now to know for sure. I find the old style overall more appealing but hopefully the new design with have a better, more secure fit similar to the So Kate 120mm (which also says 'fits true to size' on the website but I take a 1/2 size down - so 36.5 - I am a true 7) unfortunately in adjusting they fit they have compromised the style and aesthetic in my opinion.
(I did send back the Blue pair since they don't fit me.)
What do you guys think of this new change? Have you tried on/ordered/do you own one of these new pairs? Let me know your thoughts below! For some reason the new version doesn't look as sexy to me side by side.
Thanks again for reading! Hope this is helpful for some of you :)
This is the most important part because that is how Ebates will be finding the winners! If you have signed up for Ebates through one of my giveaway links before, you need not re-enter. If you already have an Ebates account not through me then unfortunately to enter you would need to create a new account through the link. I know that is a pain in the butt but it's the only way we can keep track of who signs up that is a subscriber of mine.
Thank you so much to Ebates for making this video/giveaway possible - I know all of my subscribers appreciate the opportunity. :)
