Q: Hi Bagaholicboy, I’ve been following your blog for a while and love your articles on Louis Vuitton! Can I have your opinion on whether I should get the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Bellevue PM (holds quite a but looks weird), the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Roxbury (nice but a bit too rectangular and formal looking) or the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Sunset Boulevard (elegant but not practical cos too small for normal use). I want a Monogram Vernis bag that goes well with day dresses and can be used more often. Thanks so much!
A: Hi Stella, thanks for the email. You want a Monogram Vernis piece and pretty much answered your own questions. I agree with you, I do not like the Monogram Vernis Bellevue PM (SGD1200) much, the shape is really strange and bulky. I have seen the Monogram Vernis Roxbury (SGD1510) on a couple of lunching ladies and frankly it does not look half bad. The Monogram Vernis Sunset Boulevard (SGD1280) is to die for, but yes, it is too small to hold anything.
Would you consider the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Summit Drive (SGD2470, above) instead? Not only is it rather roomy, it has a rather cute shape as well, and can go from day to night pretty easily. So my top 3 picks would be the Monogram Vernis Summit Drive, followed by the Monogram Vernis Roxbury and lastly the Monogram Vernis Sunset Boulevard. Hope I was of some help and do let me know what you finally decide on.
