My bag reveal – 2016 Louis Vuitton Twist MM Black

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!

Cleaning and conditioning your leathers

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.

Antigona comes in 3 sizes and 1 tote:

Large:
Height 33 cm
Width 38 cm
Depth 14 cm
Note: Only this size comes with an adjustable strap.

Medium:
Height 27 cm
Width 33 cm
Depth 19.5 cm

Small:
Height 23 cm
Width 26 cm
Depth 16 cm

Tote the biggest of them all:
Height 40 cm
Width 32 cm
Depth 17 cm
Note: No strap. Antigona tote comes with an extra pouch inside the bag.
