{outfit} Rained Out

I recently went to the pumpkin patch with my brother and his girlfriend. Sadly it was misting the whole time and raining when we left so the photos of my outfit aren't the best. But I'm going to share them anyway because we took the trouble to take them. Luckily I knew I would be taking another tip to Jones Family Farm's in a few days so I wasn't too upset that we just ran in and out.

This bag is the third piece I've gotten on HauteTrader. I used 400 of my HautePoints to add this beautiful bag to my closet for free thanks to a Free Trade code for Fall! You can still use TradeWMegan for a free trade of your own! Don't worry, I'll be wearing the Missoni dress I got soon!

I've never been that into Louis Vuitton accessories, probably because I'm not a huge fan of their logo all over the bags. They just seem overly "look at my logo!" I would have made an exception for a bag like Mal from ReadyTwoWear had, for some reason this one didn't bug me. So when I saw that this plain, albeit beautiful, bag was a LV I was shocked. The color is gorgeous and it's a vintage bag from March 1994 if I read the date code correctly. The logo is still there, but I like how it is embossed so it doesn't stand out too much. It also comes with a cute little pouch that's perfect for your credit cards.

This particular bag, the Epi Leather Sac D'Epaule, is only available through secondhand markets now, but there are still plenty of bags in the Epi Leather Collection. After some research I found the following information on the line:
Epi Leather was introduced in 1985 as the brand's first permanent leather line, and it's been beloved for its durability and vivid color selection ever since. The leather is dyed, printed with Epi's famous three-dimensional wave pattern and then painted with a color-matching top coating, which ensures the colors are especially bright and makes the leather very resistant to water and wear. There's a reason Epi bags are so popular on the resale market: they require very little care to look virtually new for years.

  1. It is such a beautiful bag, and it works nicely with your outfit! I really like the feel of EPI leather but I haven't got anything in that line yet. Never say never ;) haha!

    Hope you have had a great weekend, and the rain cleared up! :)

  3. That really is a great bag (I feel the same way about most of the LV bags but this is so understated).

  4. I know what you mean about the logo bag, I think this one is much better. The logo subtle but the color is vibrant, looks great!

  5. I SAW it on your IG feed and automatically loved it !!! It's fabulous and I am so in with you in the thought that LV brand is usually too "in your face". This subtle branding is magnificent. Great choice.
