Please, tell me, what is the first thing that comes to mind when you see this handbag? I don’t know about you, but I see a cross between a disco ball and an ’80s stud machine that went on a rampage. I guess you pretty much already know how I feel about the Sonia Rykiel Dita Shoulder Bag; I’m not a fan. The stud embroidered hobo is just way too much for my eyes to handle. In fact, there is so much studding that you can’t even see what I imagine/hope to be gorgeous violet leather. If the studding wasn’t enough, add chain handles to the bag and you have a silver catastrophe on your hands. I am really starting to get the impression that the folks over at Sonia Rykiel can’t make a handbag without copious amounts of studding; remember the otherDita Shoulder Bag? As I think most people are, bringing out the rocker chick side of you can be fun which is I guess the look this bag is trying to get after. However, I don’t really see much fun about it. All that studding will either burn your arm on a hot sunny day or freeze your arm during the depths of winter. What do you think? Is there anything salvageable about this handbag? If so, buy through Net-a-Porter for $2,300.

Just yesterday I wrote a post on Purse Blog Savvy about a handbag by Antik Batik Eryx Pouch which I found to be rather gaudy. Although some readers disagreed with my thoughts about the bag, I am still sticking to what I said, I’m not fond of that handbag at all. However, today, I found a bag that based on yesterday’s review you might think I would hate. In all reality, I really like the Sonia Rykiel Dita Shoulder Bag. Doesn’t it seem to have a bit of a rocker-chick vibe going on? Obviously, you would only be able to wear this bag with a fairly simple outfit, but I don’t see that being a problem. Think about it, a pair of dark pant, a black shirt, killer pumps and this bag; what a knockout combination! The black calfskin suede studded multi-colored crystal embroidered shoulder bag is accented with chain-detail handles. If you need a little more room, the bag has snap closures at the sides which widen the bag while a magnetic top fastening keeps everything where it belongs – in the bag. Now, to get this rocker-chick look there is a bit of a drawback… the price. I guess it is no surprise that a handbag adorned with crystals will come at a hefty price; buy through Net-a-Porter for $3,915.
