After my issue with a different yellow Epi Louis Vuitton bag, SG is ready to scream when I see this the other day. How is this possible, where is the LV quality as the sales explains when selling us that thousand dollar bag? Or, is LV so popular that we should just take whatever?I don't think going into the boutique seeking assistance will solve my problem; they will tell me to buy a replacement because surely it can't be their fault. I must have used the strap incorrectly. Years ago I had to purchase a replacement strap for another pochette when my cute innocent Doxie mistook the strap for her chew toy. The retail cost back then was about $60 when the pochette was only a little over $200. Now a replacement pochette retails for $435 so I expect the replacement strap to be at least $100, if the color is available. I am just angry that I have to pay for something when it's not even my fault.
And, speaking of LV quality, what about rust and discoloration on the hardware? Does this happen to you? I am going resolve these issues by myself and I will update when I have a solution.Looking at my yellow Epi pochette, if I didn't buy it at a LV boutique, I would think I got taken for a fake bag! Do you have a LV story? Let's hear it!
