I've been eyeing several of these beautiful bags for the last few months. I especially like the small black tote. I've yet to see any of them IRL, but I know they carry a hefty price tag. I was just wondering if any TPFers have bought one and could tell me anything about quality, wearability etc. and how easy it was to get your hands on one. Oh, and any modeling pics would be great. Thanks :biggrin:

Traditionally it is spelled Bvlgari...like the u is engraved.

I love their bags...superb quality.
It is part of an ancient word that dates to the Roman alphabet, and there was no "U" in that alphabet, so "V" was substituted. It is B_u_lgari. :smile:

I wasn't quite sure how to write it as I've seen it spelt both ways, but thanks to both of you for your help :smile:

I was just at the boutique today and It's Bvlgari on the sign.

Not that this helps the op.
