When it comes to buying a new handbag, at what point do you consider your purchase an investment? For most of us, with the way the economy has been fluctuating lately, buying an expensive handbag might require a little more thought and planning than say, an impulse purchase. This got me thinking, how many handbag lovers consider some of their purchases investments and what makes a handbag an investment? Is it the price, the line, the exclusivity, or something else? Around the same time, I stumbled across the Bottega Veneta Vibio Large Clutch. We all know Bottega Veneta handbags carry a hefty price tag and sometimes finding a handbag that mimics the look might be a little nicer on the bank account (see Purse Blog Savvy). But, is it worth pinching pennies for a designer handbag you’ve been lusting over?
Now, this clutch is without a doubt gorgeous. The quilted python clutch as a standard frame opening, tab detailing at the top, an internal zip pocket and lush suede lining. To me, the python stands out the most. Bottega Veneta handbags have always demonstrated amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail, and clearly this has not been sacrificed with this clutch. A clutch like this would be a gorgeous addition to any outfit you might like to pair it with and it is without a doubt sure to turn heads. So, would you consider this clutch a worthwhile investment? If so, buy through Net-a-Porter for $3,950.
