This summer, I decided to make my first huge handbag investment. True, I already had a healthy selection of nice handbags – Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton, Rebecca Minkoff – but I hadn’t yet taken the plunge into investment worthy territory.
So after the decision was made, I headed straight to Barneys because seriously, where else does one go for the absolute best selection of designer handbags in Beverly Hills?I loved the Saint Laurent selection and also was quite impressed by some of the Narcisco Rodriguez bags, but when it came down to decision time, I found myself going back and worth between Celine and Givenchy.
Whilst stumped on which Celine to choose, I happened upon the Givenchy – or, rather – the ginormous silver zipper and quilted leather stole my attention. And well, after that, it was easy peasy. She had to be mine! Which is quite perfect actually, because I’m literally obsessed with quilted leather and its everywhere this season, including my faboosh Anine Bing leather jacket. I’m in love with my leathers. Life is good!
