What can I say, I love Las Vegas! After many long months of working way too hard, hubby and I took off for a long weekend. We arrived at the Bellagio and found that our room had an awesome view of the strip. First place I went? You guessed it...Bottega Veneta! They had a nice selection of carmine, camel, and regent green bags and accessories, although they had sold out of the only carmine veneta, ferro sloane, and ferro roma that they got BTW, for you old petra lovers, they had a stunning OP cabat in an enormous size; as my husband said, could fit a few bodies in it. Loved it, but couldn't afford it! They also had a cabat in limo, also in a larger size. They did not have the nebbia/ombre bag I have been looking for, though. I was all set to get the new larger baby (toggle) bag in carmine, but when I saw it in person found that the color was not as cherry red as the other bags in carmine. So...after much ado with the SA pulling out every carmine item in the store, and my husband rolling his eyes, I found that the mini tote was perfect for me! I almost bought this bag in magnolia last season, but it is perfect in carmine!!! Adjustable straps that go from handbag to shoulder bag, roomy on the inside, luscious weave...I was in heaven! After that, I figured the rest of the trip was all about the food, drink, and gambling. What a difference winning some money at the craps table makes! I was back in BV the next day so fast the SA couldn't believe it! I looked at a few makeup clutches and tried on the ferro ballarina flats which I LOVE! I ended up only getting the makeup bag in regent green, but after returning home, decided the leather was much stiffer than the one in ebano and will be exchanging it for the ebano one. And I decided I was crazy for not buying the ferro flats so they are sending those to me also. Long story short, I will be in possession of 1 new bag, 1 new pair of flats, and 1 new flap cosmetic bag/clutch. Yes, I did some damage this weekend, but hey, I deserve some fun sometimes, don't I?
