I can't help but notice this handbag the other day. It's just so "Look-At-Me", absolutely unique and feminine. Indeed, I am not surprised at all this lovely is a Valentino creation. With that being said, this bag is quite heavy already without anything in there. This silk satin bag is covered with plastic paillettes and Swarovski crystals, thus explains the weight. I can imagine my niece and nephew plucking these little petals off one by one very quietly in the corner, as quiet as a mouse.
It's truly a conversational piece but SG thinks it's a show piece better left in the store rather than my closet. Also I don't know if I am willing to part with $2995 for a fun bag, even if it's absolutely unique.
