I just got back from a relaxing and very sunshine-filled vacation to Florida and the Bahamas, and while New York weather isn’t quite cooperating, I still have poolside lounging on my mind. I’m waiting for the weather up here to catch up to what I just left, and while it’s a bit chilly and rainy outside as I write this, I’m closing my eyes and taking myself back to the tropics.
Valentino Handbags and Purses(Page 4)
Are you experiencing a little designer bag deja vu? Here’s Lisa Vanderpump, once again exiting Dancing With the Stars rehearsals in LA with a fab designer bag in tow. Last week we spotted her with the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily Sequins Bag, and this week she’s carrying the Valentino Embroidered Flower Tote.
Jessica Alba definitely brought her Easter finest to a little Sunday family shindig in LA, and I’m not referring to those baggy trousers or that sherbet hued blazer. She’s flaunting a brand new, not-yet-available-to-the-public Valentino Tonal Leather Filigree Tote, which just made its debut on the runway a few weeks ago in Paris.
At this point, most handbag lovers know what to expect from Valentino: classic femininity, but not in a way that’s saccharine or old-fashioned. There’s definite modernity to Valentino’s Fall 2013 handbags in particular, which are currently available for pre-order at Moda Operandi.
We discussed whether or not clear bags are purely a novelty a couple of weeks ago, and now there’s a new player in this trend that won’t be ignored, even if you can see right through its bags: Valentino. (Har har har, I know, bad joke.
A few seasons ago, Valentino was synonymous with bows, but that all took a change when the brand introduced its Rockstud collection; now the brand that signifies femininity and elegance also provides just the right amount of edge. I’m the definition of a Valentino Rockstud girl because I turn to well-made items but also like a little spunk, and since the inception, this line has spoken to me.
I’ve been a longtime Valentino fan, and since the brand hit handbag paydirt with its Rockstud collection, it’s been fun to watch how the accessories continue to evolve. When I first heard the news that the brand would release a camouflage collection, I immediately felt excitement.
Have you ever taken one look at a collection at handbags and thought that somehow, the designer is listening to your thoughts and plotting to make you and you alone spend all of your money on bags? It doesn’t happen often, but that’s what I felt as soon as I saw the bags from Valentino Pre-Fall 2013, which is up for pre-sale at Moda Operandi through February 3.
Today we have Lisa Vanderpump (of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules) on her way in to castmate Brandi Glanville’s book party for Drinking & Tweeting (aka the story of my life) in Beverly Hills. Her blindingly beautiful (almost literally) bag is none other than the Valentino Glam Lock Large Shoulder Bag.
