On the hunt for

A New Crossbody Bag

The Marni bag with a broken strap snap is out being evaluated and hopefully repaired. Just in case it’s a no-go, I’m starting to look at other options. This Givenchy GV mini quilted bag caught my eye and could be good.

Burgundy, green, white, black, beige.

  • Givenchy can do no wrong under CWK- she is KILLING IT. Love all of them, and I’d chose a light colored one ( beige) and a dark one as backup.

    Gorgeous selection as always, Preston. The shape is very chic too.

  • Preston, My sister, my best friend and I have always loved the Nodini by Bottega Veneta! It is made of the wonderful Intrecciato Nappa woven leather that only gets softer with time. A bonus is there is an adjustable strap. A few years ago Bottega came out with a Double-Zip Nodini that is wider than the original and is the perfect size. Every season they come out with new colors. We have been big fans of Bottega Veneta because they are happy to service their bags, with a smile! The store on Melrose Place in L.A. has been particularly wonderful. Also the store in Palm Beach, FL will bend over backwards to help you. I have been in many of their stores and highly recommend their overall customer service.
    Love, Pamela Taft

  • Hermès Evelyn all the way or a men’s Prada belt bag are my favorites. I got a sweet deal on the men’s Prada belt bag at Matches Fashion and it is big enough to hold a lot of stuff. I put my card holder, lotion, lip gloss and whatever else in it.

  • These are lovely. Another really good one is the new “slouchy banana” bag by The Row (there are two sizes)

  • I too have been eying the bottega cross body. No logo, great leather it looks and feels so good.
    I want to replace my Gucci soho as it has limited room for sunglasses & eyeglasses card case phone & lipstick.
    Although on the small side the bottega seems roomier. And I think I will have it for many years.

  • I have been debating the Nodini Bottega Veneta bag. Pamela, I think you have just convinced me. The Givenchy looks good but not fussed on the shape.
    Preston, I hope you are watching tha Australian Open.
