    Default Need to know the difference in a Versace Handbag and Valentino

    This weekend I went to a wedding and was about to sit down in a seat but the young lady beside me had her handbag in the chair.
    I asked if I could move her purse to sit down and she said sure. When I picked up the purse it had a huge V adorned with some type of silver embellishments forming the "V". The bag was a cream color and it had two handles for carrying. When I picked it up it had like a butter leather.
    I said, "Oh I love your bag, is it Valentino?!" and she said no and that it was VERSACE. I have seen Versace and mostly they have the lioness looking insignia or they have the letters but I havent seen the big V.
    Does anyone know where I can see this bag that I am describing? Do you think that maybe she mistaked her bag for somthing else and not Versace or am I just out of the loop?

    I agree, I've seen a couple bags both with the huge "V" signature. Where I admit sometimes I have no idea if its Valentino or Versace -- mostly on the vintage older styles though. I haven't really seen any newer Valentino bags with a big V.

    Anyway, when I read your post this is the versace style that comes to mind..

    did it look like that?

    Actually tbf'er Vanessa posted it in Bag Bliss

    This Versace silver basketwoven tote takes metallic to the next level. The silver metallic leather combined with the rhinestones and silver hardware makes this bag wonderfully glamorous. This bag combines so many different trends…basketwoven leather, metallic coloring, silver hardware, and sparkling rhinestones…and somehow makes it look amazing and not disastrous. But what else can we expect from Versace? This bag truly signifies everything that Versace is about. It is bright, funky, bold, and luxurious. You can always expect Versace to take a risk, and with this risk they definitely succeeded.

    I personally love this bag. It is hard to find metallic bags that can contain the look of luxury and couture. Often times, the metallic leather can cheapen the look of the bag. I think what really does it with this bag is the big rhinestone “V” in the middle outlined by the silver leather. Maybe, the “V” just hits close to home (V=Vanessa hehe), but I’m definitely a fan of this bag. This is one of those bags that stands out from the crowd. It can be spotted from a mile away and turn any boring outfit from boring to glamorous.

    Versace definitely didn’t dissapoint! And some great news!…you can find this bag for 20% off at Bluefly.com for $4,160.00.
    Here's the link to the bag on bluefly.

    There's also another black version, for much less.
