Evey once in a while a girl needs to spoil herself, for my birthday (I think it was good timing more than anything though) I got myself this little gem. Louis Vuitton have online shopping options now, I actually dont know when this started because I honestly haven’t ever really like their stuff, so this was the first time I’ve looked haha. Anyway, I am a sunsine coast girl now and need online options because I really dont get the time to drive to Brisbane that much. So I first saw the Louis Vuitton Twist a few months ago, I fell in love with the twist buckle immediately! This is the size MM which is not huge, it fits a wallet, lipgloss, keys and a phone easily but if you want more than that you might have to squash it in!
I recently looked at my Givenchy Antigona and realised how much I had been mistreating it, it had been about 3-4 months since my last clean and condition, this has started to make the bag shape a little off. The things I use are in the image below and the steps I use them in.
1. I use the Mr.Sheen wipes for once a week cleans
2. I use the hosehold leather care kit usually one a month, the kit has a cleaning solution, conditioner and sponge to apply the xonditioner, follow the instructions on the box for best results. I find the best place to get leather care item is from car part stores or high end bag and leathergood stores.
3. After doing the leather care kit I use the water and stain repeller to keep everyyhing safe and as a bit of a security blanket.
I think the most important thing to do after cleaning and conditioning is to stuff the bag with tissue paper and let it sit in the dust bag for a few days to ensure it doesn’t lose shape while it is mosturised.
Doing this once a month will really make your items last so much longer. Remember they are an investment!
I have finally found what I’ve been looking for, for a very long time. When I was researching what size Antigona I wanted I was so confused. I ended up getting the small because I always felt that people looked overwhelmed with the medium size. Anyway here are some pictures for comparison, all of the sizes and their measurements.

Tote the biggest of them all:
