When I stumbled upon the Roberta di Camerino Caravel Vintage Tartan Bag, I knew it needed a fill in the blank slot on PurseBlog. This oversized doctor frame bag features a velvet tartan plaid buckle design all over the outside. Not often do we see large doctor frame bags let alone velvet bags. The inside is lined with leather, which I am assuming will make this bag rather heavy. Price is high too, buy via Barneys for $3,150.
Fill in the blank in the comments below: The Roberta di Camerino Tartan Bag is _______.
I full admit that my taste level can be, at times, a little loose. I like shiny things. I like brightly colored things. And I really, really like animal-print things. As a result, I also really like the Roberta di Camerino Zebra Bag. It’s ittby bitty, but I can’t help but think that that means it’s just the right dose of a sometimes-tacky fabric to spice up an outfit that would otherwise be kind of average. What I’m trying to decide, though, is if the shape of the bag and its handle structure make it more suited for an older woman than a younger girl.
I could see a woman in a black boucle Chanel suit wearing this and some pearls – after all, when you’re that rich, you don’t need to haul around everything you own in a giant handbag. You can afford to leave home with just the essentials, because there’s someone else coordinating everything non-essential on your behalf. That must be nice…anyway, I digress. I’m not sure that just any young girl could pull this bag off, but with the right amount of edge, it could potentially be great with a cute black dress and some other chunky accessories when going out at night. And it’s zebra print…oh, how I love zebra print. Buy through Barney’s for $1795.
