Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag
Houston has even better prices than Paris with equal selections. If you haven’t discovered these three vintage meccas, I highly recommend you stop by these stores in our hometown.
More Than You Can Imagine is such a great source of amazing pieces which I can’t help but add to my wardrobe; these pieces have are so versatile that I wore them during our journey throughout Europe. Vicki Rizzo, the owner, is a woman who has an eye for style and dresses impeccably herself in a mix of designer shoes, clothes, and accessories. I would go in once a week if my budget would allow because they constantly get new inventory and really work with you to find what styles and selections work best for your figure. Some of the most comfortable Christian Dior, Oscar De La Renta, Chanel and Dolce and Gabanna dresses I own are from More Than You Can Imagine – I wore them all summer long.
A new personal favorite of mine is Couture Blowout! Fatou Fall, the owner, is a personal shopper and stylist. Her taste and vision for pieces is so fresh! Prior to leaving for France I picked up an authentic Asian kimono and a black silk coat (not labeled) that reminded me of a piece owned by Grace Kelly. After touring the exhibit of Princess Grace’s clothes and accessories at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London I realized that those pieces were SO similar to one that the Princess had worn in the 1960’s. It made it even more special to wear, knowing I was following such a style icon.
Of course, I would be remiss without mentioning all the amazing designer totes Times Past has purchased in our travels, both new and pre owned. (Make your appointment to see our new inventory from France before it runs out!) The designer handbag sales have been hard to resist. Although in viewing the Depot Vente’s luxury bag collection, we realized the huge difference in the way we discount our bags and the way others price their “wholesale designer bags.”
We have an important collection of Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel, and more that will be arriving over the next few weeks. We will keep you posted of their status...
The most carried bag throughout Europe was the Louis Vuitton Speedy. We saw it in Monogram, Epi, and Damier. Times Past carries the Speedy in 25, 30, 35, and 40cm, in epi leather AND monogram. Call and make your appointment today to bring European fashion to your house!
