A classic that has been under my radar all along, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Trouville is a truly lovely bag. I always figured it to be rather dowdy, but bags have a magical way of constantly appearing in front of you (so that you will start to love them), be it sauntering by during lunchtime, or on eBay, or being admired by another customer at the Louis Vuitton boutique.
The flat front pocket I find is especially handy, good for all sorts of paper paraphernalia. Additionally, the four interior patch pockets also make good storage cubicles for keys, the mobile phone and so on. Best thing, it only costs around SGD1400.
Mum! You want this for Christmas?
