LOUIS VUITTON BACKPACK

My mum has had this Louis Vuitton backpack for the longest time and it's still in amazing condition. Unfortunately my mum is not much of a hoarder and I've expressed my disappointment on many an occasion that she didn't keep her Gucci sunglasses and other items that we've spotted in old photos and videos. Luckily, she kept this bag which was last used as a nappy bag when my youngest sister was still a toddler. When my mum pulled this out of her wardrobe, we found baby wipes, packets of tissues and an old receipt dating back to 2002. I'd never ever have thought that this would make its way into one of my outfits but the days of Louis Vuitton being an 'uncool' brand has long since passed and now my sisters and I are happily claiming this little vintage bag as one of our own. Technically, this bag now belongs to my youngest sister but I couldn't help but take a few photos with it slung over my shoulder. I'll definitely be borrowing it from time to time!

  1. that's a cute bag! i can imagine your mum have that sort of swag, strolling down the streets in LV backpack and Gucci shades. dayum. my mum is not a fan of branded stuffs though (i wish she was!). but she's a leather goodies fanatic thus i got some of her bags. and exactly like you, i found so many things dated way back to the '90s. i thought it's only my mum's thing! hahah

  2. Ahahaha this made me laugh out loud! If only you knew my mum - she is the least swaggy person in all of the land! The bag is great isn't it? My mum usually wears things until they are worn and just unwearable so it's nice that this is in such perfect condition.
    Oh you can't beat good quality leather goods so it sounds like your mum's old things have found a great home and all the things from the 90s too haha!

    I never used to get LV and the monogram design, as I've got older though I've grown to love it and very much envy this backpack! xx

  5. Looove the backpack! My Mum had the same one but sold it to snap up a Gucci number (: I love that she used it as a nappy bag haha. And this outfit is so en pointe - trainers, a tee and jeans are the staple uniform here for me now!

  6. Me either! I never used to like LV because there were just so many fakes around back in the day. I've definitely changed my mind now though and backpacks are SO in right now too! x

  7. It's awesome and our parents could once have been backpack twinsies! I like that my little sis now has it, it's like it's come full circle after it used to carry her nappies! I'm glad you like the outfit Mish - I definitely wish it was proper T-shirt weather here now - I pulled on a hoodie straight after I shot these, too cold! Not really an issue for you in HK eh? x

  8. Oh, how lovely that pack is, my mum is the same way. She's had loads of vintage clothing that I wish she kept. But, she does keep china and other jewellery that I gladly accept. Great look and love the trainers too. <3

  9. I'm so, SO jealous - my Mum is a total shopaholic but there's no LV in her wardrobe... :(

  11. It's crazy isn't it? I am always looking at my mum's old photos and wishing that she still kept various things whether they are great designer pieces or not, something things just never go out of style. My mum really isn't into jewellery but it sounds like your mum has some lovely things that she's passed on to you! x

  12. I never used to really like this bag that much but how things change! Bet your mum has lots of other things that you can borrow though, I think this is probably the only thing that I would use out of all my mum's things!

  13. Thanks Lily! I'm definitely going to be borrowing this whenever my sister isn't using it - it's so fab!

  17. The only issue is the humidity xD shooting outfits is going to be difficult once the summer really kicks in! I've been ducking in and out of malls alr lately!

  18. Definitely one of those timeless designer pieces! I must see if my mum has any good things lying around but I think most of it is slightly dodgy leggings leftover from the 80s haha xx
