A couple of weeks ago, I asked you for help deciding between a grey or pink Givenchy Antigona. If you follow us on Instagram, you know I’ve made my decision: the winner is PINK!

Truth be told, after asking you and reading every single response, I was leaning towards grey. It’s so incredibly versatile, and I knew I would carry the grey bag not only for seasons to come, but for years to come. Plus, that specific grey looks to be just about as perfect as it gets. It was decided, and Vlad also gave me his grey nod of approval. Everything changed, though, when I saw a tweet from our friend Dina letting me know the pink version I loved was marked down on RueLaLa.

I opened RueLaLa as quickly as I could and saw there was one pink Antigona left, so I added it to my cart as quickly as my fingers allowed and clicked “purchase.” The pink baby was going to be mine, and at a very nice discount.

The retail price for the small Antigona is $2,280, but I got mine for $1,499.99, a substantial $780 off retail. All of a sudden, this purchase became my second best bag deal ever (after my Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1, of course).

I wasn’t sure if I would feel like I got my second choice when the bag arrived in the mail, and to be frank, I was a bit worried that would happen. In reality, it was quite the opposite. The box arrived and I carefully pulled the bag out of the dustbag, and I was completely smitten. The color was a bit deeper, but still as pretty and delicate as I imagined.

I never thought I’d be the girl with the perfectly pink bag, but now I have it and I love it. The Antigona lured me in many seasons ago, and I’ve been drawn to it ever since. I’m so happy I got the pink, and even more thrilled I got it for such a great deal.

If you’re looking for a bag at a great price, definitely check out RueLaLa. Expect to see many more pictures and a full review of my pretty in pink Antigona soon.

    She’s absolutely lovely!!

    My first thought when I saw your post was where is an Antigona only $1,500? As someone who always seems to pick the safe colors of black and gray (in handbags and clothes), I applaud you for going pink! At that price, I would have made the same decision.

  • V

    I was just wondering about “The Antigona dilemma”. Rue has solved a few color problems for me that way also. I love them! Enjoy your new cherub, she’s beautiful!

  • racheldinh

    I have the same Antigona bag. However, I am so nervous about my jeans rubbing on it. However I love the shape and color so much. Enjoy your new baby.

  • shueaddict

    Good for you !!! RueLaLa can have that effect ! You waver for months then suddenly you come to an executive decision .

  • anon

    Wow! You got it! I was rooting for the pink one!:) What’s next on your bag wishlist??

    The pink is so pretty- it will be a standout–glad fate talked you in to the “pink.” Enjoy in the best of health!

  • laurellee123

    Its wonderful! I saw the same one on Ruelala and thought about it. I have actually seen a number of purses I love on there but have never been able to pull the trigger. I worry about problems with authenticity – but you girls know what your doing when it comes to purses. Maybe I will try Ruelala! Its a great bag and a great deal!

    • Rashmi

      It’s a great website and I buy from them regularly. they do sell authentic items. The only thing is that if in case something happens you cannot send back for repair work. But then you get better prices!

      • laurellee123

        Thanks for that info! They have good deals on there.

  • missarewa

    just gorgeous! and u got a great deal too? win! enjoy in good health :)

  • Oh wow, great choice Megs! I’m pretty sure I told you to get the grey but the pink is perfection. Can’t wait to see more pictures ???? you must be so pleased!

  • It’s such a beautiful pink – I’m also deciding between the grey or beige one T_T

    Congrats on a great deal btw ;)


    • anon

      Oooooh I think the grey would be so lovely! I saw it in Neiman and thought it was just gorgeous in grey. Especially the shade of grey it comes in. It’s a little harder to find a great handbag in a grey color rather than a beige. But the beige is beautiful as well (very classy) so you can’t go wrong! My vote is on grey for you:)

  • Sandy

    So pretty, love it!

  • Mel

    I LOVEEEE !!!! SO GORGEOUS!! Congrats Megs !! :)

  • Rashmi

    Hi Megs I was thinking of you when I saw the pink Antigona in Rue lala and thought of informing you but I guessed you must be on top of it already since you mentioned you check online frequently. So glad you scored it! Congrats! I’ve got a green one. :)

  • Mya Wilkes

    Isn’t she lovely! enjoy your new purchase.

  • Regina George

    Okay, we’ll call you “The girl with the pink antigona” instead

  • lavinia

    When it goes this way it’s DESTINY. The pink one was your bag (and I voted for the grey one…) This reminds me my first Prada which was in 2008 and was green. I bought it and I thought “it will last one season”, but you know it is still there up-to-date! after all these years and I love it. Be happy enjoy it. Well done! :)

  • So… there was a flash sale on Rue-la-la and you didn’t tell us? or do I need to follow you on instagram?

    • Follow us on Twitter and Instagram – we are always posting deals we find! I will be sure to share more going forward :)

  • NK

    If anyone else is looking for this bag the Neiman Marcus last call in Bonita Springs, FL (miromar outlets) has several for around 1300 I believe.

  • FashionableLena

    I love a pink handbag. So soft and feminine. I’m not an Antigona fan, but this one is gorgeous.

  • belleism

    glad you took the PINK and with a great discounted price! you scored! hahaha love it! would love to see photos of you carrying it!

  • Kat

    Congrats Meg!!!! Beautiful color and what a great find!!!! :)

  • kaly

    She is stunning! And to get such an amazing deal made it destiny!! ;) Congrats!!

  • “Hey, there, I rather like the gold on pink (even though I’m color blind, not nose blind). Even though I’ve been “altered”, I still like girly things, and the “Old Folks” who feed me like to dress me up like a 4 year old human from time to time. I like frills…”

  • cecilia

    Those are the BEST deals, when you got what you want and on SALE, enjoy it

  • Randa Joiner

    I love the pink bag! I need it on my wish list! It would be a wish!!

  • Kay Nigeria

    Yayyy!!! Happy for you.Dont know what it is with women and bags.When i see a bag i want,i get sleepless nights until i get it,Then when i do,esp. the day i do,i Don’t get hungry.I get filled up just looking at the bag.Then i set it on the table just so i can see it from every angry,i leave it there for Hours..My children have a good laugh at me and my behaviour towards my bags…

  • HayleySusanne

    Absolutley stunning! I believe Rae AKA The Raeviewer has this one as well, this is my choice of colors too! The Antigona is just a beautiful piece of craftsmanship encased in a gorgeous little package!

  • Jen

    Do you do mod shots? I’d love to see how you’d incorporate pink into your looks. I would have gone with grey too, but pink is such a feminine and unexpected color. However, I’d be totally lost on how to wear it.

    • Rarely am I in front of the camera, but I plan to do a Purseonals on it soon so I can share some photos then!

  • Ruth Moore

    Handbags are part of every woman! Yay! Happy you got this one. My newest bag is from http://www.robecart.com

  • eva

    does anyone know where i could find this color? I’m in love!!

  • Deborah

    I am so envious of that great deal! And that color. My designer budget is small, and had advised you to go grey, but at that pricing I would have gone pink as well. What a lovely bag! BTW – I bought the black medium Auntie Tigona (as I love calling her) from the Givenchy store in Vegas last June and had the BEST time. I still swoon every time I use my bag. What a great addition to your bag collection!

  • Scottsdale Kim

    Love this story! I searched the Internet and found a medium in medium blue at Barney’s for $1459. Can’t wait for it to arrive.

  • golfgrl

    the gray one is gorgeous! More versatile

  • Stephanie Durham

    does this have gold hardware? I’m on the hunt for this bag two years too late.
