Louis Vuitton – Karma Has Good Taste

This is how I know Karma has good taste.

As promised today I am sharing with you the last item I found while thrift/op shopping. This Louis Vuitton Insolite wallet!

So, I’m standing at the counter of the Fashion Sisters favourite thrift/op shop while my other items are being added up and I look down at the vintage clutches in the cabinet. And there, right up front, what do I see? A Louis Vuitton Insolite wallet. From where I stand it looks right. So I point to it and ask, “How much is the Louis Vuitton wallet,” and then there is a gasp from my right before the Fashion Sister comes rushing over. The sales lady says, “Oh, we just put that out this morning. I’m afraid she put $100 on it”. The Fashion Sister and I look at each other, both of us are holding our breath as the box is set on the counter in front of us.

I pick up the wallet. “It has its chain,” I practically whisper to “sis”. “It’s got the right paperwork and markings,” says the Fashion Sister back in a whisper. We both give it a good going over and decide that if I don’t buy it, I am certifiable…so I got out the credit card and added it to my already heavy with guilt shopping spree!

Go big or go home!

Now you understand why I didn’t go mad at The Mill Markets. I had the greatest find before I even got there! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would find anything that nice by any world-famous design house in our little regional capital. Sure, I have heard stories of people getting a great buy of some designer piece but that is always in the city and I didn’t think it would be me, finding anything Louis Vuitton!

I’m thanking Karma.

The week had been hard and I had gotten through it and at last I was being rewarded for perseverance!

With the chain it can be worn as a great little wrist clutch and I plan to carry my new Louis Vuitton Insolite wallet all over Melbourne this weekend!

Even though I never, in my wildest dreams thought I would own a $650 wallet…I do!

Thank the fashion goddess and karma for having good taste!
