Versace Velvet Show BagToday is obviously the day of showy bags. Probably a bit too much for most of you to handle. I feel like if these bags all got together and went to a party, when the disco ball would shine on them the light would blind the room. Wonder if I am making any of you feel that way with my metallic/python/gold/striped bag day today. Anyhow I just feel like these bags can only be pulled off with the simplest of simple outfits- nice jeans, a white tank, and cute heels. Anyone disagree? Versace usually screams out for attention, and this bag doesn't do any differently.

The Versace Velvet Show Bag truly is a show itself. The bag is described as,

"Glamorous enough for a goddess, Versace's sumptuous velvet bag beams with luxury. Ripples of golden velvet shimmer over the pretty pouch shape, accented by chic croc-stamped leather and a diva-worthy supply of polished golden nails, buckles, chains, and accessories. With artful silk lining, a delightfully decadent bag."


I'm thinking my writing skills weren't about to say any of that, but maybe try to get close to it (hence I was not an English major). The first striking part of the bag is the velvet with croc-stamped leather and the polished gold metal hardware. Right from the get-go both of those assets are screaming out at you. The rest of the bag begins to blur together with croc-stamping and gold: there is a frame structure (which I actually love the shape in this case) that has two golden claps with golden Versace cubes, a golden Medusa medallion which hangs from the bag front (as if the rest of the bag didn't receive enough attention on it's own), visibly chunky gold metal chain straps which lead up to the croc-stamped shoulder strap, and why not finish it off with the buckle details having croc-stamped leather straps each and every side of the bag. This bag isn't playing around. On top of all the outside madness, the inside is lined in patterned silk and has a small pocket and a golden (of course it's golden) Versace plaque. The bag looks a bit bigger than it may actually be, measuring up at 11" x 6" x 5.5". If today hasn't been showy enough for you already, this bag is sure to put you over the top, which is the same thing the price tag does. {$2,016 via eLuxury}

With this bag your outfit has to be elegant, casual, and basically simple enough to work. This bag is screaming "LOOK AT MEEEEEE! MEEEEE!!! LOOK LOOK LOOK!".

I wouldn't mind having one. Or two. :) hehe

Yes, for me it is too showy, too much metal around (chains, buckles...).

It is much too flashy for me. The bag will draw all the attention wherever one goes and there is that fake croc again.

I really like it, but I tend to like flashy bags :) It looks like it would feel really good, I hope that I get to the mall sometime this week to check it out.
