Welcome to a slightly delayed Edition of Tuesdays with Twiggers! Cruise season is officially upon us! Although if you are like me you are merely thinking of turkey dinner and trying to finish up your holiday shopping. However, the idea of taking off on a cruise to a faraway island and leaving the husband to finish his own holiday shopping, decorate the tree, hang the decorations, and cook the Christmas dinner (all while toting a fabulous new Louis Vuitton bag) somehow appeals to me! The cruise season also makes me think of sun and fun;and the dreary Midwest is not going to be providing any of that for at least another 5-6 months!
Even though I’m not escaping to any distant islands this year, Louis Vuitton has still released some beautiful new bags that will help get me through the dreary winter months. The new Mini Lin Croisette line was released on November 1 and contains a great selection of handbags and accessories sure to please everyone. The Mini Lin Croisette is a variation of the traditional Mini Lin line, part of the permanent collection; however, for the cruise collection the bags now come in two new colors, red and blue, and are subtly striped. When I picture red and white stripes I automatically think of candy canes, but not so with these new bags! The bags are trimmed in a gorgeous white pebbled leather. I am very impressed with this new collection and am curious to find out what you think too!

When I have a baby I intend to travel with him/her/the whole family clan. All over Europe I have seen families on vacation and baby in tow. What I realize from carrying my Chloe Paddington Tote is two things: a) it is heavy and b) poor moms having to carry the diaper bag. I will hunt down the perfect man diaper bag when the time comes, because there is no way that I will carry the baby and the bag at all times. But you know me, I will travel in style, just like the rest of you Purse Bloggers should. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Lin Diaper Bag is trimmed with grained calf leather and features all the hoots and whistles needed for a posh and practical diaper bag. You are guaranteed to need to change your tot, so there is a washable embroidered changing mat. Then the list just goes on and on, and I can’t think of anything LV has forgotten to make a mother happy. There are flat handles that are adjustable, a removable padded shoulder strap, an address holder which can be stamped with baby or mother’s initials (never put your full name, initals works perfect!), and a key ring holder. But then there are the compartments, TONS of them. On the outside you will find two pockets for baby bottles, one large front pocket with two interior flat pockets, one zip pocket, and one flat side pocket for mat. And on the inside you will find two flat pockets for diapers, two interior compartments, and an elastic band on each side for baby bottles. So there you have it. A posh perfect pair. Measurements are 17.7″x 11.8″x 6.7″ .

To keep white and lights clean is hard for most and nearly impossible for many. I owned a stunning Coach Tote which had a light blue suede stripe and cream colored canvas. I bought it for my trip to Europe three years ago, hoping I would look chic and I would not be devastated if it got dirty. The tote was stunning while it lasted, and then it started to get dirty. First on the four bottom corners, then on all edges, and it was all downhill from there. This was after 4 months. I put it in the washing machine (insert laugh now). RIP Coach Tote. I swore off light bags then. But right now a creamy delicious LV bag has my attention, and if I do not trust myself enough, there is a dark version available too. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Lin Speedy is designed with monogram mini lin canvas which is feminine, light, and a perfect addition to the LV Speedy line. Available in either dune or ebene, this speedy is trimmed with leather and features shiny brass metal hardware. There is a zip top closure with a mini padlock (not heavy like the Chloe Paddlock) which opens to textile lining and a small patch pocket. At eLuxury there is the size 30 right now. Be daring and go light, or be safe and go dark.

Pictures of new Louis Vuitton handbags have been released to the public. The Louis Vuitton Mini Monogram Lin line sports a delicate masculine touch; although made of silky linen, it appears to be pretty durable, too. I haven’t had a chance to see it myself in person yet, but so I hear from our forum members who have been lucky enough to do a little pre-release touch’n feel. The official release date for the new line is September 15th. The pictured Speedy 30 in Mini Lin will go for $675, which is just a little more than the MC Speedy. Additional pictures of the new Mini Lin line are posted in the linked forum thread.
We actually saw a Louis silk scarf in similar colors yesterday when we visited the Bal Harbour LV store to go pick up the Purse Forum’s 1 Year Anniversary Giveaway items… if you would like to score some exquisite Louis Vuitton freebies, make sure you visit our blog on September 13th and look out for the official contest announcement.
