While simple handbags are easy to match with many outfits, quirky and decorative handbags appeal to my imaginative side. I fell in love with Bottega Veneta last summer when I had the chance to try on and feel the quality of the bags while in Germany. Since then I drool over Bottega Veneta bags, literally. So finding this lush exotic looking BV makes my heart skip a beat. The Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Karung and Tortoiseshell Bag is a limited edition intecciato karung leather bag accented with faux (yahoo!!) tortoiseshell beads and fastening. The inside is lined in pale blue suede along with camel leather. Although the tortoiseshell is faux, this bags price coincides with the exotic being real: available through Net-A-Porter for $4100.
Side note: This bag totally may not be loved by all. I just showed Vlad and his immediate reaction was “Oooh that is pretty hideous!” Ha. So, it really is different strokes for different folks!!!
