I’ve always found that the LV lady is a certain kind of lady. She’s sophisticated, wealthy and might even travel with trunks! She’s not flash and cash new money. She’s usually a bit more traditional or mainstream, and not as into the cutting-edge shoes. Nothing wrong with that, as I like almost all shoes that aren’t monogrammed (they DO have monogrammed ones, both in the Damier style and the Monogram style). The LV shoes are pretty classic, and I like what they have going on.
I’d never carry an LV mag that was monogrammed. I just feel like they’re too easy to recognize. It’s like buying yourself into a cult.
That’s why I like the Sardegna, pictured below. The monogram is there, but it’s so subtle you hardly notice it. I’d actually like it better with no monogram at all, but for the design, I’ll take it.

What are your thoughts on monograms? Do you try to hide your brand names like a boho hipster, or are you out there in the open, a flaunting diva queen?
