Today is a very late start after a morning filled with appointments. I went on my way to the appointments and everything was the exact same as usual, except one added little touch. Only valet parking at the Doctor’s office. It seems like a simple difference, well because it is, but it added that slight bit of extra luxury. Parking at this one Doctor’s office was like finding a specific shell in the ocean. Spaces were limited and beyond small and everyone was hunting people down in the lot. Believe it or not there is literally no where else to park. Nada, zip, zilch. So this added perk really made my day. And this is the precise thing Bottega Veneta has done with their Bottega Veneta Ruched Shoulder Bag which is updated with a slightly gathered middle. Everything else is the exact same as the iconic Bottega Veneta Veneta Bag; simple design, classic shape, buttery soft leather. But the middle ruching adds the perfect pizazz. There is something about this added dimension, on top of the woven leather, that really makes the bag stand out. The midnight blue leather is a stunning option for fall and winter, but easily works for summer (think of it like blue jeans, seasonless for the most part). The inside is lined with taupe suede and there is a zip top. Simple and elegant, just like Bottega Veneta likes it! Buy through Net A Porter for $1,950.
