Just last night, I said bye to Tzar. Today, it’s something else. After ten years of loyal service, my LV Pochette Gange bag finally said bye-bye (accidentally got caught on the door knob, the straps been detached from the bag itself ). I remember summer of 1997 at the Magnificent Mile in Chicago (LV Flagship/ Gallery), the day I laid eyes on her and whimsically bought her to satisfy my mundane desire. (1998 I bought, Montsouris and then, Musette in 2000) She’s been a reliable companion throughout my travels and lasted this far, considering I’ve use her more than the others. Never made any demands or ever complained, all she ever wanted was the dust bag, chamois cloth and a dash of leather cleaner or conditioner. I will miss her dearly, ten years together is such a long time.
