Q: Hi Bagaholicboy, I love reading your blog! I wish to ask you about the price for these two items. I couldn’t find these items in your blog and I hope you won’t mind. Are they suitable to give as gifts?
A: Dear Yvon, sure they are. The Louis Vuitton Silvery Lock And Key Cufflinks retails for SGD710, while the Louis Vuitton Utah Totem Key Holder retails for SGD445. Both are only currently available at Louis Vuitton Ngee Ann City. While cufflinks are good for those who need to use them on a daily basis, I do feel a keyring is much better, considering that it will always be by his side.
Q: What a lovely blog you have there! I need your help. I’m deciding between the Damier Ebene Alma or Epi Alma in Cassis. Both look nice, the Alma Damier Ebene is more practical (it does not get dirty easily but Cassis is such a pretty colour. Would love to hear what you think! Thank you!
A: Dear Mimi, thanks for writing in. I say go with your gut feel on this one, and ask yourself which one would you use more frequently? Both are gorgeous in my opinion, but if I had to choose one, I say take the Epi Alma in Cassis. I am not sure if this colour is permanent or will be discontinued after a while, so it makes more sense to get the this one first.
Q: Hi Bagaholicboy, I really enjoy reading your blog, it’s one of my favourite blogs ever. I’m sort of in a dilemma right now as I am going to travel to Europe soon, and am planning to buy a bag in Paris. I have 2 bags in mind, which are the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Hampstead MM and Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Galliera PM, but I can only afford to buy 1 bag. Bagaholicboy, please help me get through my dilemma, which bag suits me more? BTW, I’m a 26 year old mother of a baby boy.
A: Dear Grace, your dilemma is not uncommon as I get many emails asking me which bag is better. And I always give advice based on what information I am provided with. In your case, if you do not already own a diaper bag, the Damier Ebene Hampstead MM (SGD1890) is perhaps the better buy, as it can double-up to hold baby’s bottle and extra diapers. The Monogram Canvas Galliera PM (SGD1860) is lovely, but the bag’s ‘unique’ structure means everything you put inside gathers in the middle, which also means taking anything out in a hurry will be frustrating. And considering that you will be carrying Junior around on outings, the Galliera may prove to be inconvenient and impractical. Get the Hampstead instead.
