My Shopping Conquest #46


Below: LV has one of the best packaging and presentation.
The SA almost did not give me the box, I had to request for it. Grrrr...




Below: Peek-a-boo again!


Below: Comes with a mini 'Graffiti Rose' booklet and a 'Made in Italy' tag. There is plastic covering over the brass parts to prevent scratches. 'Yummy-liciously' mint!


Below: Bling bling time!


Below: YSL Downtown made funky!



Louis Vuitton 'Stephen Sprouse' Graffiti Key Ring In Orange

Time out! The winner of the 'Shopping Inner Struggle' wrestling match goes to none other than, 'Devil wears Prada' (As Sean clever puts it!). 'Angel in Gap' unfortunately got blindsided and suffer a big blow to the face, downs to the ground after multiple flying punches.

And hence, as the winner of the 'Shopping inner struggle'...I present to you guys, the prize of the match...the ever so tempting, 'moral' forsaking Louis Vuitton 'Stephen Sprouse' Graffiti Key Ring In Orange!

Congrats to me for my first ownership of Louis Vuitton Graffiti item. When Kevin wants it, he gets it. When Kevin makes a new year resolution, he usually forsakes it!:-P

"Baked Beans karma awaits", shouts the angry bruised Angel.

Meanwhile, that can wait, I just keep admiring the beautiful brass cut-out letters of 'Vuitton' and fondling the neon cut out letters of 'Louis'. It suddenly do not look 'cheap' to me, more like chic! Eyes of the beholder syndrome...I may be self delusional.:-) Look fabulous on even my YSL downtown bag. The Neon colours and design instantly 'funky-fied' my downtown bag and gives it an edge! Woohoo...I am a cool 'old kid' now.

Yo-yo!

Retail price: SGD $420. Where to buy: Louis Vuitton Boutique at Hilton Hotel

it looks real good on that Downtown. i wonder if the green key chain will suit the Treillis.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi Javier,

the best way to determine that is to bring your treillis down to the store and test it!:-)

Are you going to get it?:-)

Kevin

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Oh Javier, the green is not the very green type of shade..it's like your flourescent highlighter yellow, except a bit more green. Yellow green in a way. reason why I chose orange is it does go better with more bag colours:-)

Bengt said...

Wow, I really love it! Looks great on your YSL! Congrats Kevin!

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Thanks Bengt!:-) You are doing a great job covering the graffiti stuff on your blog:-) Keep up the good work.

Happy weekends,

Kevin

i wish i can just go to the boutique to try it, but im currently out of town. and i don't even have my Treillis with me (which i miss terribly). my SA is just shipping my Graffiti stuff over. but i think you're right about the orange working with a lot more colours than the green.

Congrats on acquiring this 'starter' piece of the Stephen Sprouse Graffiti collection Kevin! I must say it does look funky on the downtown. According to my SA in Vuitton & several write-ups on blogs, it glows in the dark. Could you perhaps do a test for us? It just doesn't do justice on Vuitton ads for me as sometimes the pics could be manipulated to give an effect! Please prove me wrong! Or does it only apply to bags and not accessories? I'm sure it's all, no?

Anyway, to my very own suprise, eyeloveit! You guys are evil ! hahaahaha in a good way! I'm so tempted to get something from the SS Rose collection now.

Wont the 'Louis' plastic break in half if you're not careful?

00o00 said...

nice! but i find it a tad expensive...

Anonymous said...

it's expensive and not really that nice, why did you get it?

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi YSL Lover,

I have not test it in the dark. But it seems the SA told me that it will glow when in black light. Not under dark enviroments. I did briefly take it out to see if it glows while watching a movie...but it does not. Maybe it has not absorbed enough light? Hahaha.

And Anonymous no.1, the plastic is sturdy and not brittle, unless you have the intention to break it.

And Joseph, yeah, I agree...it could have been priced slightly cheaper, considering half of it is plastic.:-)

And anonymous 2, what one sees as trash is treasure to another:-) It all boils down to whether if you like it and that is all that matters. I like it...so I buy it:-) Taste is subjective.

Thanks for clarifying about the green-ness of the green graffiti bag charm. I love green, but I want my green more on the darker green side, not yellow greenish. Ugh, sorry too much green in one sentence. LOL. I'll have to go down the store first and see what's for me. Last I was at the store it was only the Pareo and the 3-set Bandana available for viewing.

Congrats! It sure looks gorgeous with your YSL, bet it ups the ante on your LVs.

Finally the devil won with style...

Allan said...

nice but overpriced.

I would take it if it was given to me for free. :-)

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Yes, Sean, the devil in prada easily charms his way to victory!:-P

have you started using yours?:-P

And Allan, hmmm...good strategy. Anyone out there, if you are a secret admirer of Allan, you know what to do!:-P
