My First Louis Vuitton Alma Bag!

I have been in two minds for quite a while whether I should start implementing more fashion here on my blog. I love fashion, possibly more so than I do makeup and beauty products, but I didn’t know if other people would be interested about reading about it. My blog seems to be doing well at the moment when it comes to visitor numbers and I didn’t really want to rock the boat by switching things up. But at the end of the day, I just thought to myself that this is my blog and I may as well do what I would personally want to read about. So, this is going to be hopefully, my first fashion post of many to come.

I thought that I would kick things off by sharing with you guys my first ever designer item. For me, once I got my first designer item, it was a slippery item from them on. I have to treat myself to a couple of designer items each year and now I have a lovely little collection that I am very proud of buying on my own. But, my first designer item actually came courtesy of my old man. That makes me sound like a very spoiled little girl, but there is more to that tale.

When I was around 6, my mum and dad got a divorce and not long after my dad got a new girlfriend. Even though I was very young, I knew from the first time that I met her that I hated her. I know that hate is a strong word, but I hated her for getting in between my mum and dad. So, as a bonding experience, she took me to the South of France with her best friend and her daughter for a bonding weekend. While we were in the South of France, I still stayed true to my bitch ass self and made sure that she still knew that I didn’t like her. That was when she decided to take me on a little shopping trip.

Armed with my dad’s credit card we went shopping all day long, obviously at the time, I didn’t know what she was doing and that she was spending my dad’s money. But we went into a Louis Vuitton boutique and I bought myself the bag of my dreams which was this Louis Vuitton Alma Bag with multi-coloured monogrammed. As a 6-year-old, I thought that this was the coolest thing in the world and I was so excited. I even think for a brief moment I liked my dad’s girlfriend for letting me buy it, but then I quickly went back to throwing daggers at her!

I can remember when I got home from the tip my dad was waiting with his credit card statement in hand and he exploded at his new girlfriend. I couldn’t help but allow a little evil grin to spread across my face. And luckily, my old man allowed my to keep the bag that had cost him an arm and a leg because as he put it, it wasn’t my fault that she bought it for me.

I have to admit that back when I was young, and I would walk around carrying this handbag, I loved using it. It gave me a sense of power over the girls who were a similar age to me that would carry a JD sports bag or if you were pushing the boat out, a bag from Jane Norman. From then, it was like I had caught the bug. I saved up all of my money, became incredibly frugal and decided to only spend my money on some big-ticket items like designer shoes and handbags.

This Louis Vuitton Alma bag has lived in my drawers for quite some time now and I think that I can quite safely say that I haven’t actually used this bag in years. The multi-coloured monogramme really is quite out of date now and it isn’t something that I would carry with me. But, there is something about this handbag that I really lovely. It was my first designer item and I know that I am going to keep it, even if it becomes just a decorative item, I still love it and the funny story behind it!
