ban’s off, birthday’s on: LV damier graphite ieoh

I subjected myself on a self-imposed LV ban four months ago and now that January 2009 is here, and with me turning 27 last Tuesday, it’s time to lift the dark blanket and open that trademark yellow dust bag…

To reveal the Damier Graphite Ieoh which I picked up yesterday from the LV store in Oslo. 

I love its structured, masculine look and the solid hardware, and it being my first Damier Graphite bag. Should go well with my Damier Graphite Petit Scarf. It also fits my classic 12″ Powerbook, so that’s a plus for when I travel. The outer zipped compartment would also come in handy for storing travel documents.

So I took it out to the snow today for a shoot. Zero-vachetta = Worry-free! LOL.






I LVoe it! It feels good to be back again from a ban and get something special for my birthday. And this bag is worth all the wait.


Here’s me trying on the Ieoh last night. Photo was taken by biancaboo who went with me to the store to see her Sprouse pieces. We also met up with a cool guy who’s also into Vuitton. You know who you are.  Thanks for the fun night, guys!

    @ K – find the monogramouflage first as it’s limited, the graphite’s not. :)
