Loving Lately: The Valentino Demilune in Winter White

This little Valentino has me re-thinking my no white rule...

If you had asked me a year ago—or even a few months ago—if I would ever consider buying a white bag, I would have said no, absolutely not. I always thought that white bags, though chic and classic, were super impractical. I take good care of my bags, I make sure they stay in great condition by storing them away in dust bags when not in use, and when they are in use I don’t throw them around. I treat them like they are my babies, and well I guess they are—for now.

Recently, the Gucci Marmont Mini Camera Bag caught my eye in white and I had to talk myself out of it really fast. “No.” I told myself, “You’re not getting a white bag.” I got over it quickly until once again, I found myself falling for a white bag! Enter The Valentino Demilune Small Crossbody Bag.

I fell hard and fast for this petite bag, and though it does come in other colors, I’m just obsessed with it in white. If I were to do a white bag, this is how I would do it—in a bag that’s special, and not to be used everyday. This bag is just that bag. It’s a super-mini, so I would use it mainly for nights out as it doesn’t fit much, but it does fit everything I need for a night out.

Yes the bag is tiny, but with a small interior slot for cards you can go sans wallet. I typically only carry my ID, debit card, MetroCard and maybe a $20 bill for a night out—I never pack a full wallet, so I would utilize the card slot to keep the rest of the bag free. No matter the time of day, I always have a notebook of some kind, and I was able to fit in one of my minis + a pen, a small makeup compact, my iPhone 6S and a lipgloss.

I love everything about this bag. The shape, the hardware detailing—especially that dainty chain—and the studded cross body strap! The bag features an adjustable strap that is also completely removable, a suede lining, and an interior slit pocket. Overall dimensions of the Valentino Demilune Small Crossbody Bag are 9.2″ W x 6.2″ H x 2.4″ D. Snag this little lady for $1,295 via Bergdorf Goodman. Would you rock the winter white bag trend?
