I got curious tonight as to why LV or Louis Vuitton bags are so insanely expensive. I don’t even like a lot of their designs and even the fake ones are expensive. However, I do love their hard sided trunks which are of superior quality in terms of style in my opinion. But still they are so expensive, you could buy a car with their prices. So anyways I browsed pictures of their bags and I saw that pic above.
Face meet palm moment. I remember this bag, I saw it once in a low end ukay2x shop (The good thing about low end ukay2x places is that they don’t know what are expensive brands and what are not so you can easily cheat buying an original for a really cheap price). It was dirty and old but it got my attention because of its texture, it was naturally thick and hard and really felt like alligator skin which gave me goosebumps. The label was not clear and I didn’t inspect it thoroughly because it was dusty. Its lock was missing as well as its strap. But I wasn’t really looking for a bag that day, I was looking for materials for my DIY projects. They were selling it for P30.
I considered it for awhile and then changed my mind because I realized I didn’t like the feel of alligator skin. Now that I know that it could have been an LV bag I am regretting but then i guess no women in their right mind would throw away an LV bag. It could probably have been a high end fake but then, who knows. :)
