One of ArmCandyGirl’s favourite bloggers out there is the irrepressible Violent Acres, a brilliantly funny writer with a life story that rivals the most controversial of celebrity memoirs.
Why do we love VA so much? Well, there are many reasons, the most important being that she is smart, savvy, sarcastic, and (we strongly suspect) hot as hell.
So! Without further adieu, ArmCandyGirl would like to present the Perfect Purse for Violent Acres. We give you:
Now why this purse, we hear you ask?
Well for starters, it has exquisite craftsmenship. VA comes across as a lady who appreciates the finer things in life, so that’s quite important.
Then there’s the fact that, despite it being a Louis Vuitton purse, it isn’t slathered in obnoxious LV signs – VA doesn’t care if you know she’s carrying a $1,500 purse because she doesn’t give a flying monkey what you think (a sentiment she has made patently clear thus far with her ‘no comments allowed’ policy).
And then there’s the fact that the purse is just the right size for our heroine to tote around all day without getting too tired, but still large enough to use as a weapon (beware, mommy bloggers!) .
Finally, we think Violent Acres and the Damier Berkeley would be perfect for each other because, much like Violent Acres herself, this purse is oh-so sweet, classy and pretty in the edgiest of ways.
Violent Acres + Louis Vuitton = a match made in fashion heaven!
The Speedy from Louis Vuitton is an old favorite, which is why this new play on a classic design is so very lovely.
Called the Monogram Dentelle Speedy 30, this monogram canvas purse with caramel trim is a wonderful go-to bag for everyday use.
Brass hardware and rolled leather handles finish off this comfy, roomy purse – and the icing on the cake is the gorgeous lurex embroidery, made of real lace for that extra touch of luxury.
One for the Christmas list!
Wondering what to get your dad/brother/son/husband/boyfriend for Christmas? Look no further than the Taiga Alexander from Louis Vuitton.
This gorgeously crafted suitcase/laptop bag/superexecutivepowercase is made of beautifully soft calf leather with silver hardware and leather trimming.
As far as actual storage is concerned, it doesn’t get any better than this double-zipped glory of a bag – there are more than enough compartments for not just your laptop and laptop accessories, but papers, phones, whatever business-like things you could possibly imagine.
Business has never been this sexy!
There’s nothing like a purse that’s soft and warm in the Fall – so this bag from Louis Vuitton fits the bill perfectly.
Called the Monogram Olympe Nimbus PM, this gorgeous lambskin purse has a buffed leather effect and leather handles as well as an engraved nameplate.
Beautifully soft and supple, this is a wonderfully wintery purse from Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton can be a little hit and miss with their designs sometimes – but when they get it right, they get it right.
This gorgeous purse is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Denim Neo Cabby, a denim canvas bag with calf leather trim and gold hardware.
The purse has expandable sides for those days when you need to carry a little bit more than usualÂ – seeing as the silly season is almost upon us, there’s a big chance you might be needing that extra space!
You can even detach the strap on days you want a super-girly handbag you can hold in your hand.
A beautiful purse for the chilly winter days!
They may not be so common anymore, but sometimes it’s refreshing to carry a real old-fashioned wallet – one with so many pockets and slots that there’s no chance of your cards getting lost or mixed up.
This wallet from Louis Vuitton is a stunning example of both elegance and practicality, of sturdyness and of style – the Epi Leather Eugenie Wallet, named after the Empress Eugenie.
Made of Epi leather with palladium hardware and a grained calf leather lining, this beautiful little wallet will never go out of style!
This bag is called the Monogram Canvas Neverfull MM, a lovely new summer purse from Louis Vuitton.
The Neverfull line is a range of bags that really do look as if it would take a lot to fill them – they’re roomy and hardy without looking dowdy, a perfect way to celebrate Louis Vuitton’s history of gorgeous travel accessories.
With brass hardware and the Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas, the Neverfull is a great tote for the warm weather months!
If you’re wondering where you’ve seen this tote before, it’s currently hanging off the rather voluptuous body of one Scarlett Johannson in a series ofÂ Louis Vuitton advertisements.
Called the It’s Love Canvas Tote, this is exactly what it says it is – a canvas tote.
A collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs (who pointed out that you can’t spell the word ‘love’ without ‘LV’), this bag is made of cotton and linen canvas.
The crowning glory is of course the gold and silver stitching, which apparently took over twenty hours to complete, entirely by hand.
My my my! Luxury indeed!
Father’s Day is coming up, which means that ArmCandyGirl will be featuring a veritable procession of the manliest man-bags that money can buy!
We’re kicking off with the Louis Vuitton Epi Laguito Briefcase – a solid, dependable yet deliciously luxurious carrier, perfect for work, or to carry softball paperwork – whatever.
Made of the highest quality epi leather, the Laguito has a front silver lock and plenty of inner compartments, ensuring that everything stays in its place.
A lovely added touch is the soft rounded handle, easy on poor old dad’s hardworking mitts.
Go on, he deserves it!
This delicious little purse is the Louis Vuitton Suhali Le Talentueux, part of Vuitton’s summer look.
Made of gorgeously soft goat leather, this purse is decadence itself with its polished brass hardware, natural grain leather and lovely belt-style shoulder strap.
The Le Talentueux comes with a classic Louis Vuitton monogram lining and a lock and key.
