The Material Boy #208
Louis Vuitton 'Stephen Sprouse' Graffiti Key Ring
Okay, I am not supposed to even be thinking of spending any money this soon! Oh my...but it seems my 'itchy bum' had to moved itself from my cosy office chair and head down to Orchard Road with the intention of 'shooting down' the newly launched LV 'Stephen Sprouse' Roses and Graffiti collection that was launched today. I think I was self deceiving. Okay, maybe the rose collection is not my cup of tea, but some of the smaller Graffiti accessories that arrived together was worth mentioning. Indeed, one thing lingered on my mind...and it was originally not even on my lust list. Fates had it that I somehow got 'mesmerised' by the swanky Louis Vuitton 'Stephen Sprouse' Graffiti Key Ring! I LVoed the die cut graffit style typeface, and being a sucker for all things shiny, that 'Vuitton' word in brass and huge size...wowed me! Drools...
However, I do agree with my friend Mervyn that the plastic lettering portion seem kinda cheap and not worth the high price. It's a real dilemma. (The orange one is shouting out to me even after I left the store :-P)
Gosh, temptations, temptations. Will I forgo and put aside my new year resolution so early in 2009?!>!...or should I stick to my original plan of cutting down on shopping? It's like my angel and devil having a wrestling match on my shoulders. Yeah, 2009 is indeed a 'hard' year already!?! 4D lottery...I am counting on you this weekend now!
Retail price: SGD $420. Where to buy: Louis Vuitton Boutique at Ngee Ann City
