Long before Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo bestowed their daughter with the name Dusty Rose, the shade was an omnipresent favorite among fashion people, and it’s still is a color of the moment. I fell as hard into the dusty rose trap as the next girl–you see, I love pink, but bubblegum pink is too overt, in my opinion, and not really my vibe. Enter dusty rose, the color: it’s a combination of pink and taupe, and a color I can’t get enough of.

Bottega Veneta has always used some of the most divine colors in the handbag rainbow, and when I found this Bottega Veneta Messenger in Dusty Rose, I fell so hard. It’s perfect. The color, the simple style, the leather. Everything about this bag is perfection. The size is just right to fit all of my personal essentials so I can carry this for myself while also carrying a diaper bag for Millie. For the first time in a while, I added this bag to my cart and am ready to check out.

Designed with handwoven Intrecciato nappa leather, the adjustable strap is slender, which makes it light to carry and features signature knot details. The double zipper closure shows a suede-lined interior with an inside zip pocket. Dimensions are 9.4″ x 6.6″ x 1.6″ and there are 11 colors to choose from on BottegaVeneta.com. If you ask me, this is the perfect bag, at a great price, with a color option for everyone. The price is a very reasonable $1,580, buy this bag in Dusty Rose via Net-A-Porter.

    Such a chic alternative to the camera bags. Although, the shoulder strap looks too thin to be comfortable.

    • I find it comfortable because the bag is more compact so it’s not that heavy to make the strap be annoying to wear at all

      • TheModMazza

        Thanks for the info, Megs. The red one is particularly beautiful, and I am thinking of checking it out in the store.

      • Check it out and tell me what you think!

      • TexasST

  • Sara

    Love it. It’s divine :-)

  • sev2108

    What do you think fits in it? Looks pretty small… comparable to the Celine trio maybe?

    • Let me do a what fits with one of these for you all!

    • LC

      it looks similar to the trio to me!

  • Sparky

    I didn’t buy this because the strap is too dinky for me.

  • Sparkletastic

    This is a double no for me, unfortunately. I don’t like dusty rose or BV’s woven bags.

  • LC

    i so want this bag. and in this color too! =(

  • J

    This bag needs a better strap.

  • Yazi

    I’d prefer the Gucci Marmont. Almost the same price and can hold more stuff.

  • Imgoingbroke

    It’s a nice, simple bag, but I’d never wear it…too small for the stuff I haul around.

  • Susan

    It just doesn’t look like a $1,500 bag.
    I don’t like the strap or how it is attached to the bag.
