Purse Forum Louis Vuitton Meet
Yesterday, about 13 women and one guy met up in Toronto to shop on Bloor St. This wasn't your typical window-shopping, oh no, we all had one goal in mind: to find an amazing Louis Vuitton bag and/or accessory.
Most of us have never met in real life before, but we knew each other by our screenames on The Purse Forum, where we have shared our lust for all things Louis Vuitton and other designer bags.
It was a perfect day for shopping. Thank God we didn't need those umbrellas after all because the weather was sunny and hot. The day started off at 10 a.m. at the Windsor Arms Hotel for a yummy brunch, in which we passed around our bags, a home-made LV authentication guide and even fake LVs so we could get a good laugh.
After brunch it was straight to LV on Bloor to do some major damage to our credit cards. I ended up buying the Watercolour Speedy 35, while others purchases a Neverfull, a Batignolles Horizontal, a pair of shoes, a pastilles, a cles and some scarves. It was heaven.
We ended up spending the whole day on Bloor, going into Holts, Chanel, Prada, Hermes and Cole Haan where I bought a pair of cute flats that are perfect for my trip to France.
After shopping, we met up with some more ladies for dinner at Hemingways (the pad thai there is amazing).
It was a great day and I can't wait to do this again!
