Another awesome theme park: Dickens World!

dickens12.jpgdickens32.jpgdickens23.jpg

Not only is there going to be a Harry Potter theme park, but there is already a Dickens World! Just opened in May 2007, it’s located in Kent, England. It’s like the Theme Park Gods are making my dreams come true. I wonder if there is a character actor walking around as the Artful Dodger!!??

Now if only there were a Louis Vuitton world… well actually you can visit the Louis Vuitton Museum in Asnieres, France, 25 minutes outside of Paris. Or you can just go to the Champs Elysees LV store, aka “The Mothership.”

Amarante is here!

brentwood.gifsummit-drive.gifAmarante Vernis items are finally available for sale at Louis Vuitton. Go to Eluxury.com to check them out. This color is divine- a rich dark cherry- and it will make a fabulous fall/winter bag. I can’t decide which I love more- Pomme D’Amour or Amarante…

Gucci sale! and new LV Epi color! (updated)

If the rumors are correct, there is a Gucci bi-annual sale coming up. From what I have heard there is a “pre-sale” going on through the end of May where you can go in and pre-order sale items to be picked up in June. The official sale is in the first week of June, BUT I have heard that by then most of the good items are gone. Supposedly, the discount is 30% on canvas bags and 40% on leather bags, but don’t quote me on this. Seasonal items only, nothing frm the staple collection. Also, the sale is not online.

Hurry up because the Gucci sale items will sell faster than Leilene’s used stripper-wear or Schataar’s “couture” dresses! 😉

Also, in LV news, there is a rumor of a new Epi color coming this fall- purple!! Can’t wait to see this one. Purple is quite the color this fall; purple Epi, Amarante Vernis- should be a great season for LV lovers.

***UPDATE: 5/28/07- Checked out the Gucci store today- lots of great bags and shoes on presale today. The official sale begins next week. Also Neiman Marcus is having a big shoe sale- tons of Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Ferragamo, Prada shoes about 30% off.
