Some customers desire to own a Louis Vuitton bag or belt, but have (reasonably) deemed it to be out of their price range. However, there are many ways to save money when you buy Louis Vuitton products. One of the best ways to cut costs when purchasing Louis Vuitton is to look for used goods. This article contains some helpful advice for those who are looking to purchase pre-owned or used Louis Vuitton products.

SHOPPING ONLINE

The best way to look for and buy used Louis Vuitton is to look on the internet. There are many different websites that allow users to post ads with pictures of things that they are selling. Oftentimes, one can find great Louis Vuitton products on these sites. However, buying online does require some know-how in regard to the terminology used on these sites. For example, a popular phrase is “GUC.” This is an acronym that stands for “Good Used Condition.” With items marked “GUC,” one can expect some light wear and potentially some blemishes in the product. However, the item will be in good overall shape. The best acronyms to look for when buying your pre-owned Louis Vuitton goods is “VGUC” (very good used condition), “EC” (excellent condition), or even “BNIB” (brand new in box).

STORES

In addition to shopping online, customers can also look at certain stores to find good used Louis Vuitton products. Some particularly good places to look are at upscale thrifts stores or vintage shops, or licensed pre-owned luxury goods dealers. Both of these venues will provide well-cared for, good-looking Louis Vuitton products to buy.

Congratulations! You’ve purchased a crisp new Louis Vuitton bag. As you feel the supple, soft leather with the iconic print, it is inevitable that you may wonder how to keep your bag in this pristine condition. While caring for the leather in your Louis Vuitton bag can be time consuming, it is very rewarding to be able to enjoy this kind of quality bag for years to come. The following pieces of advice will ensure the longevity of your Louis Vuitton bag’s life.

USING POLISH

The best way to keep the leather brilliant and attractive on your Louis Vuitton bag is to use polish. The main function of polish is to rejuvenate the small pores in the leather and keep it hydrated. The subsequent effect is that it gives off a luxurious sheen that is very impressive to both the trained and untrained eye. One of the best brands of polish to use is Lexol. This kind of polish can easily be found at any kind of local hardware store for a cheap price. When applying the Lexol leather polish to your bag, be sure to use a soft, clean rag or microfiber cloth. Do not apply the polish directly to the bag. Instead, put a small amount on the cloth and scrub softly but vigorously in a circular motion.

USING CLEANER

Another way to maintain your leather Louis Vuitton bag is to clean the leather. This is most effectively achieved using a warm, damp cloth. Make sure not to use too much water, or else you will over-hydrate the leather and cause fading in your bag.

So, you’ve decided to upgrade your Louis Vuitton products to the latest style and fashion. In doing this, you have resolved to sell your old Louis Vuitton goods to make room for the new ones. Here are some insider tips and tricks to getting the most out of selling Louis Vuitton;

SELLABLE CONDITION

The first thing that you need to make sure to do is to have your Louis Vuitton goods appraised. The key to this is to find the right appraiser. For example, if you have a Louis Vuitton bag, then you will need to consult the services of a bag appraiser. In the same manner, if you have a Louis Vuitton suitcase or trunk, then you will need to consult a luggage appraiser (and so on and so forth). Once you have located an appraiser, make sure that you have your Louis Vuitton product in the best condition possible. This usually involves cleaning and potentially using restoring or blemish-hiding products to optimize the appearance of your Louis Vuitton item.

LISTING YOUR LOUIS VUITTON PRODUCT

Once the appraiser has given you a certain value that your Louis Vuitton piece is worth, you will then need to list the item. There are several ways to go about this. One of the approaches that you can take is to sell your Louis Vuitton item online. This is a good method because the internet is so widespread that your item will definitely get exposure. Another way would be to list it in the local classifieds or go through a registered used Louis Vuitton dealer. Either way, make sure to stick to the price that your appraiser gave you to get the maximum  monetary return on your purchase.

Showing off Louis Vuitton at a Fashion Show

A fashion show or exhibition is the best way to become aware of all of the new and upcoming trends and looks in fashion culture. Many designers show off what they have been working on for their current or next collections. Yesterday I had the pleasure of participating in a small local fashion show. I was asked to allow models to exhibit my Louis Vuitton bags and accessories that I have collected over the years. Naturally, I agreed and went to the show. Here is a short rundown of how it went.

 

ARRIVING AT THE SHOW

The fashion show was held at the convention center that is downtown. When I got to the show, they asked me to ender the VIP drop-off area to hand over my Louis Vuitton goods. I brought three bags and a belt for the models to show off on the runway. After I left my Louis Vuitton bags and belt with the correct staff, I was directed into the VIP area for the show.

THE SHOW

I was absolutely blown away by the presentation of the show. Beautiful models (male and female) would strut down the runway sporting a variety of incredibly fab and well put together outfits while cool and hip house music thumped in the background. I was also very pleased to see my bags sported with some great ensembles. Overall, the show lasted about 45 minutes in duration, and that was just enough to give me a sort of sensory overload (in a good way).

 

CONCLUSION

I would definitely allow my Louis Vuitton goods to be displayed in a show again. It was a 10/10 experience, and I can’t wait for the next show!

Spotting Fake Louis Vuitton

A MARK OF DISTINCTION, A MARK OF ENVY

Louis Vuitton is easily one of the most iconic and legendary companies in the world in the area of designer goods. With that position comes many imitators who try to profit from the distinction that Louis Vuitton rightfully deserves. This mostly comes in the form of many counterfeits and fakes. For the untrained eye, it is easy to be fooled into buying such imposter products. Here are some tips to avoid buying into a sham.

1. QUALITY CHECK

One of the most distinguishing characteristics of authentic Louis Vuitton products is  the unparalleled quality and attention to detail. For example, if you inspect the stitching on a genuine Louis Vuitton bag, you will find that it is exactly perfect. Fake Louis Vuitton bags often have irregular stitching or frayed cross-stitches. This is a dead giveaway. Additionally, one should search for any blemishes or irregularities in the leather of the bag. This is another way that Louis Vuitton stands above the pile of imitators.

 

2. LOOK AT THE LOGO

Oftentimes, imitators will have a hard time exactly copying the logo. Make sure that the logo exactly resembles that of an original Louis Vuitton product. Additionally, look to see that the fits perfectly within the print pattern of the product and that it was not just screened onto the product.

CARING FOR LOUIS VUITTON PURSES

One of the most popular Louis Vuitton items is the purse. Through day in and day out use, these items can sustain some wear and damage that can limit the life of the purse. One way to reduce the amount of potential damage and wear is to make sure that the purse stays clean. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. For example, make sure that you never set your Louis Vuitton bag on the ground. Putting it on the ground can expose it to dirt and also potentially sharp or abrasive objects that can cut or scrape the fine leather that makes up the bag. Instead, hang it from the back of your chair or utilize the purse hooks that you can often find in restaurants. If you do find that your Louis Vuitton bag has gotten dirty, make sure to wash it with warm water and soap. Be careful to use a soft cloth, and avoid scrubbing too strongly. Afterwards, using leather polish or leather “food” can greatly increase the shine and supple qualities of the leather. In this way, you can enjoy the luxury of your Louis Vuitton bag to the highest level.

Louis Vuitton: The Mark of Expert Craftsmanship

THE BRAND

When the topic of high-quality designer apparel and accessories arises, there are many names that come to mind, such as Hermes, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Prada. But one name defines the zenith of luxury and modern fashion: Louis Vuitton.

THE HISTORY

The Louis Vuitton legacy began in 1853 in Paris, France. Frenchman Louis Vuitton made trunks with special canvas that made them light and airtight. Additionally, the design of the shape made them very easy to stack with other trunks. This was advantageous at the time because trunks were the most popular form of transporting goods and belongings at the time. Vuitton’s trunks quickly became well known, and many trunk makers began to copy Vuitton’s famous design.

LOUIS VUITTON TODAY

Today, Louis Vuitton accessories can be easily spotted with the iconic “LV” logo and print. Furthermore, the Louis Vuitton brand delineates a certain tier of fashion, luxury, and distinction. In addition to trunks, Louis Vuitton also makes a plethora of accessories, such as bags, wallets, belts, and ties. LV also now has designer clothing that it sells to the public.
