Jew-y Vuitton

Louis Vuitton has introduced an online monogram service. Currently, only three items are available for "Mon Monogram" personalization including the ubiquitous upscale suburban handbag of choice, the Speedy. The stripes and letters are applied before the canvas is sealed.

If I suffered a head injury and was dumb enough to drop a grand on a fabric handbag, I would choose the above combination. Of course, gifting is always welcome.

You know, yesterday was my birthday. Just sayin'. ;0)

I bet I'd be the only one out here in the sticks that would have one with THAT monogram and still, no one would "get" it.

Oy.

You should pick up a knock off and monogram your own!

NKP - Happy belated birthday, my Darling!

My hubs actually got me said ubiquitous (for city as well) bag for Xmas. It doesn't speak, though. If it did, it would say, well, it wouldn't say anything because it already says LV! Seriously.

It's a great fucking bag, I will say.

I realized that I've pretty much decorated my house in those colors. Both houses!

'round philly the bag alone is generally enough of an indicator of jew-ness, but hey, say it loud, say it proud, right?
mine would have to say half-jew, which is probably too long

I would almost drop a grand just to see you carry that bag...

almost.

My daughter's friend's mom has the initials S.W.O. and has a fancy monogram decal on her SUV's back window. I don't quite get it... Maybe it's a Southern thing. You know how in fancy monograms the last initial is centered in the middle? So it reads "SOW." I'm amazed that she's okay driving around labeled as a female pig.

Plaisirs Simples - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

do they have one that reads "still undecided"?

OMG! Just a few weeks ago, a friend, Jewish, told the story of when she was born, her grandfather asked what her name was to be. Her parents replied "Joan. Joan Ellen"
A short time later, a panicked call from the grandfather, who remembering that the family's last name began with 'W', called and said "you want that she should go through life with 'Jew' on her luggage?" Her name promptly became Ellen Joan W----. And today, I log onto your site, and there it is!

And what a kick to be able to send her this post today. Her comment? "I only wish my mother were still alive so I could send this to her".

TDED - You've completely cracked me up this evening. I ADORE that story.

I actually do monogram things "J-E-W":

I have one of those bags and mine says, "OMG"...thought it was fitting.

Raina Cox said...

that bag is killer, but not for the price...i'd get super bored with it. but maybe not with monos like that!

great post!

My initials would be PHD. My husband's are JD and he's a lawyer. I feel so under accomplished that I have a PHD without the diploma. It all feels like something out of Tiny Alice by Edward Albee!
