Ask The Bagaholicboy #106 – Do I Hock My Alma MM And Other Bits…

July 29, 2009

Q: Hi Bagaholicboy! Hope you’re well. I need help again. I have a Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Alma MM in Amarante.. then… I saw the new colours. Now I am undecided. Do I sell it and get the one in Bleu Nuit or Vert Bronze (I have ready buyers), keep the Alma and get the one in Bleu Nuit or Vert Bronze, or just keep my Alma and avoid surfing your blog till economy recovers; thereby saving me thousands.

Also, I bought the a new bandeau in Pink to match my current Alma. Do you think it’ll match the new colours?

A: Dearest Nur. Talk about being fickle. Then again I don’t blame you, considering the fact that both Bleu Nuit and Vert Bronze are very, very gorgeous colours indeed. Honestly when both colours came out I fell for Vert Bronze first, but after seeing both shades in person I personally do prefer Bleu Nuit more now. So if you are going to hock your Alma MM in Amarante, then you should know which other colour to get. That about sums up your first 2 queries doesn’t it?

As for your third point, you’re just kidding right? Avoid my blog and I will hunt you down personally and pelt you with my Vuitton collection. As for the bandeau, I don’t think it will match as well, but you can sell it with the Alma MM in Amarante can’t you?
Love, Bagaholicboy

And other bits:
1. Claire, besides the Louis Vuitton Orchard Road Singapore collection and the Burberry ION Orchard Exotics collection that was launched specially for ION Orchard, other exclusives offered by other brands include Miu Miu (hideous in my opinion), YSL (when it eventually opens) and Longchamp’s limited edition Le Pliage collection which are currently on 30% with purchase using Citibank cards.

2. Shirley, the bag beside Sally Ride in the Vuitton campaign is the Monogram Canvas Icare, and it retails for SGD2340. And it comes in Damier Ebene as well, in case you are looking for an alternative pattern.

3. May, if it bugs you that much that the Miu Miu Coffer is now made in Turkey my best advice is for you to return it. I’ve always thought the more important factor when buying any bag is that fact that you love it, and not where it is made.

4. Joel, depending on the size and height of your bags, how about these shelves from Howards Storage World? I’ve got one myself just for all my bags. The fact that you can adjust the height of the shelves as you like helps too.
