The Louis Vuitton Twice AKA Twinset Crossbody Review with Cheaper Alternatives!

February 19, 2016
louis vuitton twinset twice review with dupes

Hi Everyone!

I recently purchased a new crossbody bag and I love it so much that I thought I would share a review. I used to be the girl lugging around the huge bag everywhere. Years ago, I threw that all out the door and bought a crossbody bag for traveling–and it turned out to be a new found freedom for me! Ha!

Now, it’s my favorite go to style for a purse. I am all about a good crossbody bag. I can do everything I need to do completely “hands free”! Once you get a crossbody you won’t go back to a shoulder bag–believe me. They are so great for everything and the best part is that they can be dressed up or down. Wear them with jeans during the day, then tuck in the straps and you have a clutch to go out in the evening. See what I mean?

I had bean eyeing the YSL Crossbody for a long time but didn’t buy it because it just seemed so small for the price. This also goes for the Chanel WOC (Wallet on Chain)–they are beautiful but for the price they don’t fit much. The Louis Vuitton fits all my essentials and I love the double pockets so I can be more organized! The Twice also has an adjustable strap–no more “one size fits all” like the rest! Now that we have that out of the way–here are some details about the Louis Vuitton Twice formerly known at the Twinset.

What Louis Vuitton says:

Twice offers trendy design and flawless functionality in a single lightweight and compact bag. Twice transitions from day to evening with ease: worn cross-body for a look of casual chic, or suspended elegantly from the shoulder by its long leather strap. Compartments front and back keep belongings organized. Twice is offered in playful and high-fashion shades of Monogram Empreinte leather.

So, since the Twice is $1,440.00 pre-tax–and since we are friends–I thought I would take a look elsewhere to see what I could find that is similar and not so expensive–I ended up finding a lot! Enjoy!

First off we have the Marc by Marc Jacobs Double Percy. This black Marc by Marc Jacobs is hundreds of dollars cheaper at $248 along with being super cute! Click the photos if you would like to purchase one.

Here’s a great shade for spring. Louis Vuitton calls this shade grape–I call it fuchsia! Anyways, I did find a similar shade.

Before I go here is my favorite leather cleaner and protector–it was recommended to me by a Chanel sales Associates. I use it on all my handbags except for dyed leather. Of course, always spot test first!
