Bottega Veneta Glass Bag

Bottega Veneta Glass Bag: Heart of Glass

Here is a perfect example of a bag that illustrates the pillars of Bottega Veneta: impeccable craftsmanship, contemporary functionality, and timeless design topped with quality materials. And like every Bottega piece, it effectively grabs attention without resorting to the vulgarity of in-your-face logos or cheap tricks like tacky dangling fur balls.

Carven Broderie Anglasie Kiwi-Print Dress: Picking Fruit

Carven’s quirky prints always have me coming back for more, and the latest fanciful piece comes with a serving of oversized kiwis. The magic of the French house is that it can take a look like this that seems as if it would be perfect for tots, and give it a surprising taste of understated sophistication.

The beauty lies in the brand’s unique magic: their signature intrecciato technique is instantly recognizable, no second guessing required, without a logo or nameplate to be found. Who needs it?

St. Patrick’s Day Green Bags: Don’t Get Pinched!

According to legend dating back to Boston in the 1700s, if leprechauns (or your prankster friends) see that you’re not wearing green on March 17th, they’ll pinch you! To avoid unsightly little bruises, I recommend one of the Emerald Isle-hued options below. My husband’s maternal grandfather was 100% happy go lucky Irish, and his spirit has me in the mood to celebrate.

Bottega Veneta Double Handle Woven Tote Bag: Functional and Fabulous

Satchel or life organizer? What about a Bottega Veneta bag that’s both?! While on the outside, this has the look of a quintessential day bag, it opens up to reveal a supremely innovative interior with compartments as detailed as those of a steamer trunk.

Top 5 Perfect Polka Dot Bags: Crazy, Spotty, Cool

Right now, it’s all about polka dots on everything from sundresses to stilettos, but you know I have a special place in my heart and closet for bags. A smattering of spots can serve a real purpose. Take a boring, serious bag and add the right kind of dots – whether magnified, hardware-decked, perforated, or perfectly wacky – and bam! Suddenly you’ve got something cheerful and delightful for summer.
