Louis Vuitton Alma BB Epi Leather Bag in Fuchsia


Louis Vuitton Alma BB Epi Leather Bag in Fuchsia Review

I’m super, super excited to share with you my band new Louis Vuitton Alma BB Bag in Fuchsia Epi Leather! I have been saving up for this bag for quite some time now after falling in love with it online months ago. I wasn’t sure I could do it, spend so much money on the bag, however when I went into the Louis Vuitton boutique on New Bond Street in London last weekend just to take a look at it, my boyfriend said my eyes lit up as soon as the sales assistant took it out of the dust bag. I’m sure they did as I was completely mesmerised by the colour! In person it’s this deep and rich shade of pink/red/purple which is just so delicious you could eat it! After trying it on, I did not want to take it off.

I was initially worried that the bag would be too heavy for me, like most designer bags are, but this one is really light. I picked it up with a little force behind my lift and was shocked that it actually lifted so easily. For me, that’s incredibly important as you know I can’t carry heavy bags, so it’s the perfect weight! Everything about this bag is literally stunning. The grain of the leather from the epi print is gorgeous and I like how subtle the branding is, only having faint LV logos in various places. I like that I can carry it with a cross body strap or with the top handles and the interior is so soft, it feels like velvet or soft suede!

In terms of dimensions, the bag is 9.8 inches long, 7.4 inches high and 4.3 inches wide, so you can tell that it’s the perfect size for keeping all of your essentials! I have done a full video review on YouTube though which I have inserted below, I would love for you to watch that! I showcase the whole reveal and go into a lot of detail on the bag, including all of the hardware, how things work, the care cards and more. So, please do watch my video review below to find out more! I’d love to know what you think of my new Louis Vuitton Alma BB too! Please do comment and let me know. I can’t wait to debut it in an outfit soon! So far I’ve just been getting it out of the box to smell it and cuddle it, as I’m sure other fashion bloggers do, ha ha! You can also purchase it online by clicking here. I hope you enjoy these photos! I have even included a couple of me at the boutique, so you can share the experience.

    The photo of you stood outside the shop window is brilliant. You look beyond delighted. πŸ™‚

    The bag is, indeed, very pretty – especially the colouring. I’ll tell you what else I really liked in the video though – those multi-coloured cushions in the background. πŸ™‚

    • April 28, 2015 / 5:32 pm

      Thank you! Yes! I definitely was happy! Those cushions I got in the sale at Cargo Homeware. Not sure if you have one by you, but they have some great stuff!

        I’ve not even heard of Cargo Homeware before so it’s doubtful that there’s one anywhere near to Lincoln. Pity about that if they have such nice stuff as that.

        • April 28, 2015 / 10:49 pm

          Maybe they might do online!

    I don’t blame you for falling in love with the bag, that is seriously lovely! The colour is also pretty, was a refreshing change from the usual black, brown and beige!

    I had to do a search for your bag after your comment on my blog… it is beautiful! I am so in love with the color you chose, and the epi leather is so classy.

    I absolutely love your bag! My sweet hubby just recently purchased an Alma BB epi leather in black for me. I have been trying to figure out if it’s the norm to keep the lock on it when I carry it or carry without it? Regardless this handbag is amazing and fits so much to be so compact. I already have my eye on another one… I love that fushia color! Anyway thank you for posting such a wonderful detailed review on this bag.. I saw this review before I came to my final conclusion on choosing this particular LV style.

    • October 9, 2015 / 10:30 am

      Thank you so much! Glad you liked it! It’s an amazing bag isn’t it? The lock in my opinion is personal preference. I carry mine with the lock still attached to it as I love the detail that it gives the bag, I think it’s unique. I’ve seen others carry it around without the lock though, so it’s entirely up to you which you prefer. There’s no right or wrong way to carry it. The black one is definitely a classic, great choice!

    Hi. I got this one in Monogram. May I ask if you use this on a daily basis? How many items do you keep in it and do you find the mouth opening a little bit tight? Thanks Hun! Ana

    • October 16, 2015 / 3:15 pm

      Hi, no I don’t use it everyday, I’ve probably worn it 5 times and the zipper is quite stiff and sturdy yeah, I think it’s the design of the bag. It’s gorgeous isn’t it?

    Hey Love your blog!

    I just bought a alma bb fushsia same as yours! As your image really impressed me lol.

    But I just found the interior is not that flat when I got home, feel so sad about that as I went to another city to buy it.. And BTW, can I ask where your alma made? Mine is in italy and as there are only two there in store(one display)…I am considering whether I should go to london to exchange it lol

    Looking forward to your reply and thanks for your image again!

    • March 7, 2016 / 11:32 am

      Hi, did you not look inside the bag when you got it in the store? I’m not 100% sure what you mean by not that flat? Does yours have lumps? I am pretty sure mine is made in Italy too, I think all of these ones are. Sorry I don’t understand what you meant, maybe you can explain a bit more.

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
