It is only the beginning of the year and I am already in heartbreak. My beloved Louis has passed. Now before I get a billion messages and condolences I want to explain something. Louis wasn’t ordinary. He was special and I have been with him for a little over 2 years now on and off. He is a looker I have to tell you and I loved him, I still do and I do not think I will ever stop. The bit that freaks people out when I say this is Louis isn’t a person. He isn’t someone I ran into on the street. Hell, he isn’t imaginary or fictional either. Louis is a handbag. And a very good one at that. Before you go and tell me I am self-absorbed need to get a life and all that let me remind you how difficult it is to find a good handbag. It took me years to find Louis and now that his time has ended after an amazing 3 years it is difficult to move on.
Let me start from the beginning. I found Louis on the bottom shelf in a small store in my neighborhood. He was all scrunched and shoved behind a bunch of bigger, more expensive bags but I fell in love with him. I picked him up and found him in great condition and was just waiting to be brought home with someone. He had a few bumps and scratches but hey, doesn’t everyone?
I gave Louis his name after his father, Louis Vuitton. It just clicked. Once I brought Louis home, I was told by everyone in my family that we just matched perfectly. He was exactly what I needed. Louis was my go to bag for everything. For parties, shopping, trips. He was always there for me. After a tragic incident, Louis now does not have the ability to zip up. This is very important for me, as the world is not an honest place. I wouldn’t want Louis’ friends, Tory (Tory Burch wallet or Opie phone) to get lost or scared. I have tried multiple solutions to mend the injury with no success. Unfortunately, I am not Louis-less and in need of another. Louis will not be neglected and I know he would want me to move on as soon as possible but I need some help. I have been looking out for some potential replacements and narrowed it down to 3 contenders. As I have recently lost Louis I am not sure if I am ready to make an educated decision. I would like YOU to help me choose.
Here I have me 3 contenders, Stefano (Prada Saffiano Lux Small Promenade), Michael Selma (Michael Michael Kors Satchel – Selma Stud Large) and Augustus (GIVENCHY Antigona Medium Bag). In the comments below I would like YOU to let me know who I should go for. Stefano, Michael Selma or Augustus. You can even tweet me with #RIPLOUIS with your vote. This will be much appreciated and thank you for your support. You guys are amazing.
