Thursday is For Luxe - Louis Vuitton Race Zippy Reveal

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment!!

Today I have a Louis Vuitton reveal for you! 




Story Time

Presenting....  The Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet in the Cruise 2017 Race Line, colour bleu_vert.

This beauty is a full Epi leather wallet consisting of the normal ribbed Epi and the smooth epi.  The interior is calf leather.

This wallet is so fun and bright and crazy. 

I was not looking to add another wallet to my collection this year and I was definitely not interested in the new LV Race Line.  But as is common with LV, the pictures on the website and in the look book do not do the product justice.  When one of my favourite Youtubers, Leo_Lion_LV, posted a photo of this beauty on her Instagram, I could not get it out of my head.

By the time I came around to deciding I wanted this beauty, I was told it was sold out, no hope, no way.  I had a look at the pre-loved market, but the mark up on these wallets was insane.  With exchange, they would have been $2000+ CAD.

I was on the LV website looking at the toiletry 19 and decided to just check this one out. And it said PLACE IN CART.  I didn't even think about it, I just checked out.  They shipped it out a few days later and the rest is history.

Late last year I sold my Stephen Sprouse Leopard Zippy wallet.  I had purchased it pre-loved from Fashionphile and it had arrived with an undisclosed musty smell.  I could never get over the smell, and as much as I loved the wallet, never used it because of the smell.  Once I sold it, I knew that I would eventually replace it with another Zippy wallet and when this zippy popped up, I could not say no.  This was a planned, impulse purchase if you will (lol).

I have already moved into it and love it as much as I knew I would.

If you are interested in a full review on the zippy, please let me know. 

Take care,
