Congratulations! Louis Vuitton Monogram Graffiti Keepall 50 Is Mine! (FOR SALE: Email me to enquire)

The 'vows' we made to each other:

Kevin's:

I, Kevin aka myMANybags, take you Louis Vuitton Graffiti Keepall 50 in Orange to be part of my 'esteemed' bag family, my partner in travelling with style and my one true LVoe for the time being. I will cherish our relationship and love you today, tomorrow, and not so sure of forever. I will trust you to serve me well and honor me to make me look fabulous. I will laugh with you when I get praises on how good I look carrying you and make you 'cry' if you ever make me look bad. I will love you faithfully only through the best and please, if the worst happens it means you are going to the trash bin. Not through the difficult but the easy. What may come you must always be there when I need a good travel bag. As I have spent SGD $2460 on you to carry you, so shall you ensure my belongings are well kept and safe. So help me Louis Vuitton.

LV Keepall 50's:

I, Louis Vuitton Graffiti Keepall 50 in Orange, take you Kevin, aka myMANybags, to be my owner, my partner in travelling with style and my one true master. I will cherish our relationship and make you look chic today, tomorrow, and forever. I will be entrusted to make you feel outstanding with my bright orange neon graffiti print. I will make you smile whenever you use me. I will serve you faithfully through the best and the worst, giving you ease to carry and protect all your belongings. What may come I will remain light-weight and durable for many years and forever. As I have given you my handles to hold, so I will give you funky style and perhaps future high resale $value to hold. So help me Louis Vuitton.

In unison:

Entreat me not to leave you, or to go and return from all holidays with you, For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.
Till a new and better bag do us part.

You are now pronounced travelling partners with style:-P I may use the bag now:-P

Retail price: SGD $2460. Where to buy: Louis Vuitton Boutique At DFS Scottswalk

(I had a wonderful SA track this keepall for me after I plan to return the Graffiti Neverfull Orange. I just do not like how the Neverfull looks on me. The handles were too short and I feel like I am clutching a basket. No doubt the lining is fabulous. But I do not want to look like an 'auntie':-P After some failed attempts tracking down a new keepall to exchange (I called the LV hotline, get some help from friends who knew SAs in LV), the pieces were either display piece or out of stock in every store in Singapore. I finally decided to make a last attempt and called my SA to see if she can help. The lovely SA was very helpful and friendly...she was not at all bothered by the inconvenience and she even try to find out why I do not like the Neverfull. In the end, she is convinced I am certain the Neverfull is not right for me and she called all the LV stores in Singapore and managed to track down a brand new piece for me at DFS Scottswalk (which was supposedly out of stock..strange?!?!?). She even help me to reserve it so I can exchange it the next day. I was so grateful. I head down to the DFS store the next day and that is how I end up with this gorgeous bag!:-) I bought Macarons for her on that weekend to show my appreciation for her help:-) It is wonderful to get great sales service! Way to go LV! )

Shoe-holic said...

DUDE... you struck TOTO is it? ;-)

Kevin and myMANybags said...

No lah..if I strike toto..I probably go paris to buy the bags already. hahaha.

This was paid for way before the arrival of the actual bag. and when I returned the neverfull bag, I can only get back store credit...so have to choose something from the store. I took the keepall then.:-) It's not a new purchase in a way.

And Mr Duck...yes, our Keepall triplets is ready to rock the world!

and btw, I never mentioned it was a 'she'.:-P

hehe

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hi Mayy,

Welcome home in advance! Are you out stationed overseas?

Hope you have a good journey back and can reward yourself with a fuchsia neverfull!:-)

Thanks for the support!

Happy sunday:-)

Kevin

Niz said...

Congrats Kevin on acquiring the highly coveted keepall! The family of three certainly look cheerful. Haha. Btw, that's an awesome SA! Otherwise, U would have to get the bag overseas, I reckon. :P

00o00 said...

congrats! the keepall is amazingly light, great for everyday and travelling!

what items do we now have in common? gucci sandals, this bag... anything else?

vanja said...

My SA AT LV in Amsterdam told me the sales of the graffiti line were disappointing.They sent back a lot of the stuff because in Paris there s a greater demand from asian tourists,most european customers didnt like the design.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Thanks Niz! Yes, all credit goes to my SA. And Joe, my keepall is ready for a triplet outing with yours and Mr Duck's.

I am amazed how light the keepall is...perfect travelling bag.

And Vanja, to be honest, asians are the ones consuming LV monogram pieces like no tommorrow.:-) I like monogram pieces only if they are special:-) I bet Asian tourist in paris will buy every single graffiti piece they can find:-P

toosan said...

congrats!

yes this is sooo much better than the graffiti neverfull honestly, no offense, thank god u left the other for this.

freshmess said...

Amen hallelujah amen!
Was away the whole weekend and didn't get the chance to see it until now...
Congrats Kevin! I love it!!!

UKbagboy said...

I hate myself for saying this (I have never owned a single piece of monogram), but, begrudgingly, through gritted teeth, I like it. Really like it. Colour is fabulous, construction is clearly well thought-through and executed. I'd much rather have that bag than two pairs of the Gucci flower trousers.

Congratulations, may that marriage be a long and fruitful one!

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Thanks UKbagboy (Name?):-)

Yes, I think the bag is of better functionality than the trousers. It is indeed very bright and loud...and you do not see the monogram very clearly:-) I seldom buy monogram bags...so unless it is special...then I will buy them.

and Mark, thanks! You must join in the keepall club as well!

Jon, indeed...I feel much more right with the keepall than neverfull. I feel like I am carrying a huge basket with neverfull, cos it is stiff. and handles are too short.

UKbagboy said...

UKbagboy is my name, my parents had the incredible foresight to name me that.

Kevin and myMANybags said...

Hahaha...congrats for having parents with great foresight:-P
