Valentino handbags should not be confused with the other well known “V” designer, Versace bags, which can be tacky, over-done, and far too ornate. Not always, but lately, Valentino handbags fit into a category of dazzling. I am not always raving about Valentino, but there is a feminine allure that somehow always catches my attention . This handbag fits into stunningly perfect category, as I have deemed it, Valentino Couture Bag, previously. Revamped in plush cassis suede, the Valentino Couture Bag defines beauty with a woven top and braided handles. Both the shape and added dimensions make this bag stunning. While the bag is not casual, it could still be paired with a business suit by day or look ravishing at an top notch bar or restaurant at night. Again, this is a handbag that I do not have much use for. I live the casual lifestyle, and adore it. But I can close my eyes and picture myself dressed to the nines and accessorizing with an elegant piece like this. There are double top handles, a top zip closure, and one inside pocket. I expected the inside would be lined in suede, but I am feeling disappointed by it merely being lined in cotton canvas. Dimensions are 15″W X 12″H X 6Â½”D. Buy through Saks for $1,895.
