How pretty is this long wallet from the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collaboration! I am so excited!

As you know, I am fan of Yayoi Kusama’s artwork. I love her whimsical work with polka dots and her pop-art vibe. It is amazing how she expresses her inner feelings through pop-art. Normally pop-art, and the whole pop-art scene in the 1960s in general, was fun, but Kusama expressed really deep, troubled emotions and mental health issues through her art. It is a combination of the colorful pop-art of the 1960s and the inner depths of the classical artist. I feel honored to be able to have a small piece of her work, even if it is on a wallet. She truly is an icon of the art world.

The first collaboration Yayoi Kusama did with Louis Vuitton was roughly ten years ago, and at that time I invested in a small, polka dot handbag. This time around, I wanted more than just cute polka dots, I wanted something reflective of Kusama’s art itself, so I decided to invest in the Louis Vuitton Sarah Wallet. I don’t own a long wallet, and it seemed like both a practical item to purchase as well as large enough to showcase Yayoi Kusama’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Love!

If you haven’t checked out the collaboration yet, I highly recommend doing so! There are plenty of pumpkins to choose from, and if pumpkins aren’t your thing, there are several color combinations of Yayoi Kusama’s signature polka dots. I love the blue pieces and also the black with magenta. Of course, I already have a piece of her black and white polka dots from the first collaboration with Louis Vuitton.

I love how Louis Vuitton packaged the collaboration this time around. The polka dot ribbon is so pretty and the box is ideal for storage. I plan to keep all of the packaging because it makes the collaboration whole.

What do you think of the second collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama? Did you invest in any pieces the first time around, or this time?

Thanks for stopping by!

Jill Milan wallet review

Jill Milan has launched a fabulous collection of wallets; just in time for fall! This collection of wallets is made from a luxurious, and sturdy, vegan fabrication called Elitis Microsuede; which mimics suede. Love them!

The wallets are long, continental style wallets which can also double as a slim clutch. The exterior is microsuede and comes in Blue Iris, Berry (my love!), Teal, Orange, and classic Black. The interior is dark grey, microsuede and organic cotton.

Jill Milan’s wallets offer a zipper closure; which is handy and secure when using the wallet as a clutch. It also helps keeps small receipts and coins in their place.

The interior offers several compartments, and plenty of credit card slots. My iPhone fits comfortably inside one of the compartments, as well as a small set of keys.

The fabrication on Jill Milan’s wallets is made in Italy, but the wallets are made right here in the United States. Love that!

I absolutely adore my Jill Milan Wallet in berry. I have had it for a little over one month, and have been using it everyday. It holds my credit cards, with extra slots to spare, and has enough room for my iPhone, cash, coupons, and receipts. I’m in love!

Jill Milan has also launched a collection of coats and jackets made from vegan fabrics for the fall season. I am in love with the pale pink coat! You can view Jill Milan’s outerwear collection online here. The outerwear is available for pre-order until October 1, 2015 at discounted pricing. Prices go up October 2, 2015.

Of course, for fall, Jill Milan also has a fabulous collection of handbags; what the luxury vegan brand is known for.

In addition to new handbags from Jill Milan, her “New Canaan” clutches are on major sale right now. I have one in green and adore it. These prices are amazing, grab one while you still can!
