Is it just me, or...

are Louis Vuitton bags ugly? I've been seeing them everywhere lately. Disclaimer: STOP reading here if you own one or you will secretly resent me and my unstylish ways for all eternity. They are truly hideous. I hate the color scheme- diarrhea brown on normal poo brown? Who thought that looked good? What, just because something is outrageously overpriced it becomes trendy and cool? Maybe I'll design a logo with my initials, throw a few shapes in, choose a color scheme reminiscent of fecal matter, slap it on a purse or two, and charge a couple hundred each. They'll sell like hotcakes, I'm telling you. Okay, so maybe I'm a tad resentful because Loius Vuitton treated me worse than Hermes did Oprah last time I was in Paris. A couple friends and I accompanied a more stylish friend to the store because she wanted to buy something there, and we were waiting up front while she disappered in the back. It was raining out, and we were looking a bit dumpy in our rain gear and sneakers, so it wasn't long before we were accosted by a security guard/male model. We told him we were waiting for a friend, but he stood right next to us and glared until we took the hint and moved outside. A moment later, I heard a noise above my head and felt the rain again. I looked up, only to see the awning being retracted into the roof. No joke! The didn't want us standing in front of their store, so they retracted the awning to get rid of us! Too bad I wasn't a prostitute hired by Richard Gere, because I would have gone on a shopping spree at Prada or wherever and then have walked by with my purchases all "Big mistake. Huge." The moral of the story is that Louis Vuitton bags don't make this guy look cool
and they won't make you look cool either.

I think the real reason we were kicked out of LV was b/c we were standing near this guy with an orange fleece, and it had been obvious he had be wearing it all week, and they simply didn't like that.

Those security guards/male models have an eye for that kind of rifraff.

I agree about the bags Eileen. I also think those old lady floral quilted bags are hideous. They're fine if your over the age of 65 and use them to store your needle point supplies, but I keep seeing girls in their 20s using those bags as anything from a coin purse to a gym bag, ugh. I'm sure they are some expensive brand but once they start selling knock offs at Stop and Shop that should give you a hint.

MJ, i'm with you on the quilted bags as well. if you aren't carrying around knitting needles and and multiple vials of pills, you're far too young for a quilted purse.

Hey, I have one of those bags! Maybe that contributed to getting kicked out of LV...

Anywho... I will not be sharing my poorly knitted products OR my pills with either of you! HA!

Yeah, those brown ones are ugs. That's why you should get the white ones with all the LV logos in purty colors!

That said, the bag would be a perfect accessory for a poo-party.
