The Story

My closet was mess until one day in my teenage years when I visited my cousin in 2004. She had just recently acquired one of the original 2003 LE Multicolore bags by Murakami for LV – I later found out that it was called Sologne. It was so beautiful, and frankly, I was quite envious! Many years later, my cousin grew out of this bag and gave her to me. Here she is today with a beautiful light honey patina.

Nonetheless, before I acquired Sologne, I was determined to purchase my first LV bag:
LV Monogram Trotteur

This was my first Louis Vuitton purchase and I carried it with me everywhere. I still love this bag for its practicality and will probably never sell it 🙂

I saved so hard for a year to get it and thought that I would be forever happy… but as soon as I had my first taste of designer goodies, I got hooked pretty badly… It was the start of a dangerous slippery road and the rest is history…

Today my “closet” has expanded to something like below with two walls of stuff to store all my designer junk! I love having my rotating 360 degree mirrors in between for trying outfits, and the leather ottoman in the centre allows me to sit and put on my shoes. I store my bags on these mini shelves and I have 2 cabinets on both sides of the walls just for shoes! Then there are the 3 other closets (not shown) just for my clothes too… I am still planning on installing a lighting system which has been delayed for a year now.

I will eventually need to convert a whole bedroom or large room to store everything, but for now I’m very happy with my collection. Thanks for letting me share my story! 🙂

  1. Hi Cecilia! I really love your style and fashion sense, especially with high heels and pumps! Would you be interested in doing a small modeling project with me?

    Best Regards,
    Maria

  2. Hi Maria, thank you for the offer, but I’m currently very busy these days. I very much appreciate it though, it’s a real honour 🙂

  3. I Cecelia,
    After downsizing, I did turned my third bedroom into a closet. I am a shop alcoholic as well. I have a total of 5 closets. I feel you!!!!!!
