Remember the days when Paris Hilton was the queen of reality tv and not Kim Kardashian? If you do then you probably also remember how Logomania was as hot as gluten-free living is right now. From Gucci to Louis Vuitton – everyone wanted to be a walking billboard with their monogrammed tote bags, scarves, shoes, etc. Guess what? Logomania is back thanks to Alessandro Michele at Gucci (Paris isn’t though for now) .
This monogrammed Louis Vuitton mini bag was my first designer bag ever. I got it in 2005 from my parents for my 15th birthday. Turning 15 in Brazil is almost as important as a national holiday whereas in Germany turning 15 means well…nada. Given that my mum is Brazilian, 15th birthday equaled extra special present. So here I am almost 11 years later with my first designer bag thanks to my parents and Alessandro Michele. I actually quite like the idea of incorporating one monogrammed item into an outfit – in particular casual outfits just like this one here. It adds a certain coolness to a look without that ‘bad taste’ connotation.
