How Curiosity saved this cat

Remember this picture????




I remember how i and my friends all laughed hard at this girl because of her bag. We called it all sorts; Aba!,Owerri! bla bla bla... well we were wrong.
Just looking at the bag, one would think it to be a combination of two designers, but looking closely again you will notice there is no ampersand between the D and G but a dot which can only mean what??? :S

Digging deeper i found out the Mon Monogram collection by Louis Vuitton that enables you to add your initials and a stripe thereby owning your own LV purse, now how awesome is that? :D http://www.louisvuitton.com/front/#/eng_US/Collections/Women/Mon-Monogram

Here are some useful tips in spotting a fake LV purse;


1. If any camel-colored handles are not painted red at the seams.
2. If the zippers not stamped with the Vuitton logo or insignia.
3. If the bag has oval “O’s”. Real Louis Vuitton type font has very circular, almost perfectly round, Os.
4. If the seams are not matched up evenly on the sides of the bag or if the LV logo is broken along any seam or cut.
5. If certain bags have suede lining–not all do.
6. If the trunk or bag is emblazoned with something other than the five standard (or variations of the five standard–see: Richard Prince) Vuitton monograms: the gray Trianon canvas (patented in 1854), the red and beige vertical-striped canvas (1872), the beige and darker beige monochrome striped canvas (1876), the Damier canvas (1888), and the Monogram canvas (interlocking LVs, diamond points, starts and Kimono-inspired quatrefoil flowers patented in 1896). If they have something else on them, they’re not legit.
- If the bag has neven or irregular stitching. All Vuitton bags have exactly straight, exactly even stitching. On handle tabs, each portion of the tab will have the same amount of stitches as its corresponding tab on the other side of the bag. Count them out if you have to–five stitches across the top of one handle require five stitches across the other.


#phew!
