Alright, I am in the mood to be honest today. So, Amanda, when you read this, don’t hate me too much. I don’t always like Valentino bags. I guess, for me, some bags are just too feminine. In fact, I almost end up laughing a bit to myself when I read one of Amanda’s glowing Valentino reviews because everything she is saying is spot on, yet, I still can’t get myself to see the light.

However, today, well today is a very different story my friends. I am looking at so many things I typically would stay away from but today, I am gravitating towards.


All I want to do is buy this Valentino Rouched Petal Zip Satchel and carry it all day every day. First of all, I have a weakness for gray handbags. In fact, I think it is fair to say that I like gray handbags more than black ones. Crazy, right? Well, in addition to the gray leather, I cannot get enough of the amazing raised ruffle and rose petal detailing along the front of the bag. The top handles have a 6 1/2″ drop which will fit comfortably in your hand or on your arm. Open the bag and find brown satin lining. The thing about this bag is that for some reason, it just works. It works perfectly. It’s not too feminine; it boasts the right amount of femininity. This is the kind of bag that would be a great addition to your “I’m running errands” look just as it would your “night on the town” look. It is perfect. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $2695.

    Wow! That is stunning.

  • Monique

    Cute… I’ve seen shoes that would match it… ruffles are very much “in” this year. (fb)

  • Melody

    i think its not bad but rather pricey! (fb)

  • Cate

    I feel the same way about Valentino–the bags are so hit-and-miss for me. But this one is actually quite lovely, and I like the neutral color. (fb)

  • Tamee

    Too girly for me. (fb)

  • Chicken

    I love it. I love the texture and I love the color. (I’m also more into gray than black.)
    The price is not something I love.

  • Stacy

    I also like it, however, it’s still a flower motif. Can they not do anything that doesn’t involve this look or the hugh bow look?

    • Stacy

      should of said “huge” not “hugh” bow and needed to add (fb)

  • robyn

    Normally I would hate this….however I find myself liking it for some unknown reason! (fb)

  • robyn

    Normally I would hate this….however I find myself liking the whole package. I’d carry it!!(fb)

  • Sofia Nolan

    Valentino dahlin` what is it with those petals? What is it with florals nowadays? Florals are over, out, history. Not with everything but come on, Valentino we all know you can do ten times better than this gray thing with petals haha

  • Amy

    I don’t prefer the combination of this style and the color. (fb)

  • Debbie C

    There’s just a bit too many ruffles for my taste, but it’s not a bad look. Like the color for this style. I imagine the details wouldn’t stand out as much if it were a black bag. (fb).

  • Kayla

    I like the concept but in my opinion it fails on execution. But I do really like the grey leather. (fb)

  • Celeste

    That is very pretty. (fb)

  • Pat

    This I like! I love gray handbags as well. Love, love the rose detail and satchels are my fave. (fb)

  • sheri d

    Maybe in black, this one is too cute for me (fb)

  • Karen

    I adore the color!! But otherwise it just feels too precious somehow! (fb)

  • Signe

    hm, cute. but surely not $2695 kinda cute! (fb)

  • kylie

    i understand why’d you want to buy this and carry it around all day.. i do too! (fb)

  • Cate

    this is beyond lovely…want (fb)

  • rebecca

    I really like this bag. It definitely is feminine without being too feminine. (fb)

  • Shine

    Valentino surely doesnt have the monograms but its distinguished with its rose petals designed on its handbags, i like it.. Surely would be eye catching, and considering its Valentino its an envy for other women. I agree when you feel to girly on somedays this is perfect for celebrating your femininity(fb)

  • covertanjou

    Very lovely, but I can’t see myself wearing this. It is too girly. (fb)

  • Leslie

    I think the bag is not bad, i like the grey colour but its not for me. I love bows and ruffles but this one is just okay. I find it interesting that on the BG site it says “dry clean only” lol. (fb)

  • CahtyFitz

    Beautiful color! (fb)

  • swags

    This floral ruffle themed bag is prettier than some I’ve seen but generally, I prefer flower shapes in my garden and ruffles always remind me of that shirt from Seinfeld. (fb)

  • Paula C

    So gorgeous! (fb)

  • Raleine

    I love it! (fb)

  • S

    I love grey bags too but I think it is too pretty to be an everyday bag for me. (fb)

  • Yenli

    Gorgeous! I love it :D (fb)

  • Laura

    i LOVE this bag…even though i’m too wild about gray….it’s beautiful!! (fb)

  • Laura

    oops….supposed to be…i’m not too wild about gray…

  • MizzJ

    Simply gorgeous. I would love to see these beautiful Valentino rosette bags IRL. It would be fascinating to feel the leather flowers!

  • Jylian

    This bag will look 10 thousand times better in Valentino RED!!!!

  • Karin bag4bag

    One of the first Valentino bags that I like ! Love the soft quality of the flowers – like these smaller ones better than the one enormous flower they usually do. It is like the wind has swept across the bag – kind of…(fb)

  • Nicole

    I love grey bags as well this is gorgeous
    and so pretty! (fb)

  • Val

    I love this bag! I saw it at Nordstroms and my mom loved it…hahaha now i just need to save up. (fb)

  • justa9url

    Wow! I usually don’t like the Valentino bags with the flowers but this, this is quite different. I am loving it. And I too love gray bags, I don’t know if I like it more than black though. (fb)

  • ginfred

    Nice! Very classy! (fb )

  • cheerie

    I don’t own a gray bag and i love this bag!! Some ruffle bags r um.. just a bit much for me but this one has just enough and the fact that its asymmetric is perfect!! I hate the bags w/a perfect ruffled rose on it, i don’t know, it just reminds me of the stepford wives. This bag has an edge but is not overly edgy. Yea so I just talked myself into why when I win the lotto, I must have this bag! (fb)

  • Marian

    I love everything about this bag! (fb)

  • Manda

    <3 That is gorgeous! (fb)

  • Debbie

    Love it but I bet it’s much better in Valentino Red! (FB)

  • Valentina

    I don’t always like Valentino bags either. But I love this bag, is just as dreamy as the SS10 Valentino shoes. (fb)

  • Roxanna

    Wow, such a beautiful bag. Love the color and its so classy and feminine. (fb)

  • Tanyus

    Oh my, I’m in love <3 (fb)

  • Eliane T.

    I don’t like the color. (fb)

  • savannah

    I like the colour, but theres to much going on for my liking. (fb)

  • karinnska

    busy and contrived.

  • Danica

    Beautiful and romantic! I love the grey as well. (fb)

  • Yoonmee

    Maybe a tad too many ruffles going on for me to really fall in love with it, but it’s still cute.

  • redhot

    Nice bag, but too square and too expensive. (fb)

  • mochababe73

    Not crazy about grey handbags. While I love it, I couldn’t buy it unless it came is some other color. The bag is beautiful. (fb).

  • Kate

    This is definitely my favourite Valentino handbag that I’ve seen (fb)

  • Alex

    it is beautiful, but I am concerned about the weight with all the extra leather for ruffles and rose…. Knowing myself, I would be tired of the details soon, tend to the more classic purses (unless it’s a LV Multicolore…) (fb)

  • gacats

    Enough with the flowers and frou-frou, Valentino! (fb)

  • Lianne

    I’m not a fan of the floral bags in general, but in the grey, that really does work. (fb)

  • Dawne Strehl

    I’m so in love..why is it I don’t have a Valentino in my collection? Must remedy this!!! ‘(fb)’

  • ad

    i think its pretty cute. and i too love grey bags. they’re sooo much better than black ones. i thot bout selling my black bags and buy more grey bags. (fb)

  • hect

    this, i like and since valentino left i have not liked much of the line but this i like

  • Jacqueline

    I really love flowy blouses. I have so many in my closet. but… I’m not sure if I can rock it out in a bag. I love feminine clothing…but I have to agree that Valentino designs very femm. bags. Its a nice bag but i’m not sure if I can pull it off without looking overly girly (fb)

  • Jane

    I am in love with this bag I think it is my fav of all the ruffled bags. I am a huge fan of gray bags I think they are incredible and the layering of the leather is beautiful. I love the shape of the handbag it is incredible because your arms won’t smoosh any of the leather ruffles because its not a hobo. Only if I had the money.

  • Alanna

    ooh i like this, would love to see it in person, i can’t tell how much of the flower stands out and how much of it is shading, but in the photo it’s beautiful (fb)

  • abitnerdy

    wow, those ruffles.. .they’re absolute art on a bag. I can’t stop staring.. (FB)

  • Tiff Chao

    It’s a pretty bag but too dressy for me. (fb)

  • BLynnT

    This one is great. I love the gray leather and, as you said, the detailing is right on. (fb)

  • amai

    wow….the ruffle detail is beautiful! i didnt realize it’s leather…i want! (fb)

  • Adrienne Zedella

    not for me (fb)

  • Chris

    Adorable ! OMG ! Just beautiful ! And gray is indeed a great color, it is a bit unusual and you can dress it up or down.

  • LaToya

  • Deborah Curran

    I could see me owning this – a satchel for your everyday needs yet classy enough to use at night (fb)

  • miniIcey

    Love this satchel, the petals are so elegantly done, they look like wind blown petals caught in motion. This is going to my wish list. Hopefully I can get it after my wedding.

    this is leather, right? i thought it was tulle version but if it is leather then i definitely like it! great and unusual choice of color for a floral inspired bag (fb)

  • Jocelyn

    I think it’s a great color but why ruin it with an ugly flower design on it? (fb)
