I'm generally not a fan of LV-monogrammed stuff. On the other hand, Mommy Phan can't get enough of it.
She's also one of the people responsible for my never being allowed to carve pumpkins as a child (the other being Daddy Phan). Mommy Phan would approve of this Louis Vuitton-inspired pumpkin though. No carving, no pumpkin guts, yes LV - all wins in her mind.
She has an authentic Louis or two and then the knock offs of the same bags. I refer to them as "decoy bags," to trick possible thieves and other villains. I don't know how the trickery would actually work in a real-life scenario though. And judging by her telling me that women in Houston's Chinatown are being purse-snatched regardless of authenticity, I'm thinking she doesn't either.
Did I ever tell you about the time I went to (the now defunct) Astroworld on NAACP Day? There was some really great Louis Vuitton stuff that day.
