Believe it or not, Vlad and I rarely (if ever) go to the beach. We made a move from Columbus, Ohio, which is far from the beach, to living less than 2 miles from the beach. But we never go. Now if Vlad reads this, he is going to go bananas. This is a sore subject. He says he wants to go to the beach so badly, but that only comes up when it is raining, we are working, or it is like 150 degrees outside. I continue to try to explain that people who live right by the beach don’t usually go that often. It is some kind of phenomenon. I rather go to a resort with a pool that looks at the beach, but not go on the sand etc. But I still need a new beach bag, and despite the fact that autumn handbags are out, people in Florida can use a beach bag practically anytime of the year.

Now for a beach bag, I will go a little crazy with the pattern, get something a little nuts. I have never been a huge Emilio Pucci fan when it comes to handbags, but for a beach bag, the designs are perfect. The Emilio Pucci Large Print Weekend Tote will fit a towel and all other beach/pool necessities, while adding the perfect eye-popping color and design. I take everything with me to the beach; phone, iPod, waters, food, snacks, sunglasses, contact solution, change of clothes. You name it, I pack it. I grew up around the beach, I know what may be needed when going to the beach (though my list may change since I rarely appear on the sand anymore). But this bag I love. It would look amazing with my new Maya Bikini. The handles are designed with patent leather, which is fairly durable when it comes to wear. The top has a zip closure, which is a must for a beach or pool bag, and an inside zip pocket. Dimensions are 23″W X 15½”H X 8″D. Now we come to the price issue. This is definitely expensive if you are just to use it for the beach or pool, but if you live right near the beach, it may be much more justifiable. Buy through Saks for $840.

  • “People who live right by the beach don’t usually go that often. It is some kind of phenomenon.” Funny, that’s so true for me. The beach bag, I don’t know, don’t really get that beach feeling from it…, and what is the Maya Bikini, I wonder?

    I just got a new Emilio Pucci satin clutch earlier. :mrgreen: I’m getting to love their pattern more & more. They are so classic & not really trendy at all. BTW, there were a few Pucci handheld bag at the Woodbury outlet 2 weeks ago for only $99! I’m starting to regret that I didn’t get one of those :???:

    For all you bag bargin hunters out there…I live in Ohio and have been able to buy some Pucci bags at local TJ Maxx’s for a fraction of the price…so if it is something you are interested in, they are out there for a fraction of the price. FYI…. :grin:

  • scholastican

    WOW! I just fell in love :shock: ! I had a Pucci N/S canvas handbag w/c I sent to consignment and it went fast…kinda missing it but I did pre-order this after seeing it here. Geez, thanks Megs :lol: !

    That’s a great beach bag (much more unique than the usual Juicy bag/towel combo)! I’m a California girl living less than 2 blocks from the beach, and I’ve been ONCE this summer. For me, it’s about having to schlep a bag, a chair, an umbrella…ugh! But my (Nebraskan)husband is ALWAYS on my case about not going to the beach at home.

  • Love the print, but on such a big bag, it makes me a little dizzy.
