    Bottega Veneta for me is number one brand. I love their bags, small leather goods and even shoes.They have very good quality. So classy and elegant their stuff. My experience even with the sales associates in different countries they are so well.

      Yes, it’s a great brand. Not wildly creative, but that’s not their mission. I’m leaning toward getting their Olimpia bag in black — it’s a perfect shoulder bag — if only I could splurge on the Olimpia AND the Lanvin Sugar Bag in brocade (see pic above)…

      • Lina Lee

        I agree with you. Sometimes they do surprise with the creative side. One of the reasons I love this brand Simplicity. I was going to buy Olimpia in black in large size bag, but I did get another bag from another brand. This summer I want to buy https://www.pinterest.com/pin/504192120758138308/ and I also like this bag https://www.pinterest.com/pin/504192120759514183/ I don’t know to get both or to have just one of the bags. About you Olimpia and the Lanvin Sugar Bag are beautiful bags. If I have to choose between the two bags I’ll go with the Olimpia not with Lanvin bag. Of course, you know what you want in your collection. :)

        Oh, I’ll get the Olimpia (probably the larger size, but I have to try them both on and see). I just love that Lanvin fabric sugar bag. However, i found out Lanvin also has a small evening bag available in the fabric and I think I will get that too. The bag would have only been for evening/special occasion use anyway, it’s totally unsuitable for everyday use.

        FWIW, if someone likes BV woven leather look but can’t quite afford BV prices, there is a German brand, Abro, that makes good quality, moderately priced, woven bags (in Europe, not China). Not BV level of craftsmanship, of course, but the bags are still well made. http://www.abro.de/en/woven/

        Of course then you can decide which to get. My evening bag is Pochette in Epi leather in black and I love it. I did use it going to the restaurants in the evening and weddings. Bottega they do have less expensive bags for an Ex: http://www.bottegaveneta.com/us/shoulder-or-hobo-bag_cod45207023fo.html http://www.bottegaveneta.com/us/shoulder-or-hobo-bag_cod45191132uq.html http://www.bottegaveneta.com/us/shoulder-or-hobo-bag_cod45207088ho.html you have some other bags in the website are less than 2000$. Thx for sharing this info. I did check the website. :)

    The Lanvin Sugar shoulder bag looks like it’s a perfect size. I think shoulder bags are going to be big again.

    • lavinia

      I had the same thought: this is the perfect size, not too small not too big. I love that Lanvin bag :)

    • Carn Waxler

      I agree with you about shoulder bags. I’ve been looking for a new bag and my favorites have all been shoulder bags. And yes, the Lanvin bag is the perfect size. I would love to have it in the special brocade fabric! I never buy a bag without trying it in real life, but I’m tempted to just go for it and pre-order.

  • Karisma

    The Rottweiler bag, sorry, but it just makes no sense to me at all! It just reminds me that you can sell rich people just about anything.

    • Amy

      Saw a girl in my university carrying this and I did the biggest double take because I thought I would never see that bag except on celebs. Guess I was wrong. For what it’s worth, it didn’t look as bizarre as I thought it would in the everyday world :)

    • Sparkletastic

      Agree. It’s a really ugly, tacky bag.

  • Don’t like the Rottweiler bag horrible. The rest are good, especially the Bottega Veneta and Rihanna’s Dior. But expensive, until I’m a millionaire I will just get my bags from BeauSansLogo.com its all designer, celebrity style and genuine leather, but the price tag is a fraction. Their Birkin style bags are their best seller. :)

  • Doodles78

    Like the sugar bag… Could we get a review of the new sugar day bag?

    • Ya! I need to try to find one to try out. I’ll pop into a boutique next week so I can do a review!
