Bottega Veneta Bag

Bottega Veneta Shopping Watersnake-Trimmed Leather Tote: Pale Fire

Some bags make more of a whisper than a shout – but a whisper can be just as effective, and sometimes even more so. Just look to Bottega Veneta for a prime example of a softly beguiling creation. Sure, the design may not be earth-shattering or revolutionary; it is just a shopper tote, after all.

Carven Burgundy Leather Chain-Lock Tote: Locked & Loaded

I need to make an amendment to my Friday post on burgundy bagsthis is one of the top five! Namely because finding a sophisticated tote of this quality under $1,000 just doesn’t happen.
