Valentino plies its floral, verdant trade year-round, but its spring bags are always the most fun, not to mention the most season-appropriate. Really, the only month out of the year where I’m so excited for warm weather that I’d consider carrying a bag that’s literally covered in flowers is April, which makes today the Valentino Fany Woven Flower Tote‘s lucky day.

The urge to break out the linen pants and tank tops is very strong at the moment, which makes this tote look all the more appropriate. By the time that the truly hot and sticky weather of summer rolls around, I’m sure I’ll be sick of flowers and girlishness in their entireties and just want someone to turn on the air conditioner and leave me alone. For now, though, I’d love to take a stroll through a park with this tote on my arm.

This bag requires the sort of full-skirted dress and delicately heeled shoes that I don’t really have in my closet, but that doesn’t stop me from imagining myself as an Upper East Side lady who lunches in an Oscar de la Renta frock and a pair of Vivier sandals, carrying this bag gingerly in the crook of my arm. In real life, I have black and purple hair and wear a lot of animal print, so this is a bag that I’d skip, but it’s fun imagining myself as one of those women nonetheless. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2795.

    I often love bags that I know won’t fit my clothing colors or style ! LOL

    I don’t buy white bags. I have tried to do it but I am not careful enough to keep them clean and you can’t really have a spare chair at your lunch table just for your bag ! I mean you just can’t place them on the floor under your seat as they end up filthy.

    So I like the look of this Valentino tote but it wouldn’t look fresh for long out with me !

    It has too much of the perforated thing going on for me. It looks too large to be carrying all the frou-frou. Not one of my favorite Valentino’s.

    Too seasonal for that price, but yes- it’s fun to imagine being someone who carries a bag so far from my personal aesthetic.

    I love it. But I like girly clothing. However, I don’t think that I would even wear anything feminine with it. I like mixing up styles. Sometimes.

    For some reason, I just love Valentino bags. Don’t have one though.
