Fendi Large Baguette

After more than 10 years, Fendi Baguette is still going strong, just like an Energizer Bunny. Although I do crave trendy fun bags, I have to tendency to buy classics to justify the cost. This particular patent bag fulfills both fun and classic requirements. The material is made from crinkle patent which is fun but not too shiny and the silhouette is classic Baguette. What more can a gal ask for right?! There is more.
This bag is like 3-bags in one with the ability to transform from a shoulder bag into a messenger bag by replacing the shorter strap with a long strap or an oversize clutch by removing the strap. I am petite so the oversize clutch will dwarf me and does not look very savvy on me personally. But, I am crazy about the messenger bag idea for traveling and chasing my nephew down.
This bag measures 16" x 8.5" x 3" and retail for $1680 in black. Pink and red cost $1430 at the Fendi boutique. I am assuming black is more expensive. I like the red color very much and if this is a 3-in-1 bag, each bag style really retails for only $476. Not bad at all! Anyhoo, that is my calculation and I am sticking to it!
