Hello my dear readers! How are you? Today I’m going to show you some of the bags that almost made it into my October’s wishlist, but for some reason they didn’t.
First of all, they were more expensive that I could possibly spend on a bag, and this time my wishlist consisted mainly of more affordable items. Secondly, there were other items, which were higher on my list, so they won.
I’m starting with a bag from “The Row”, by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
All photos taken from Net-a-Porter
It’s a classic, leather and suede doctor bag in black, and you can find it in Net-a-Porter, for €3.850. I know the price is over the top, but let’s not think about that for a while. Looking at this bag, I thought that it reminded me a lot of Victoria Beckham’s “Victoria” tote. I believe that the similarity is obvious. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a link for you to buy the mini Victoria tote in black online, but I found it in other really beautiful colors for you to choose.
Starting with the light gray color, which the designer named cement. It’s a small tote in gray leather, matte finish, two top handles, three internal compartments, light-gold hardware, feet, fully lined in cream leather and a zip fastening, according to Net-a-Porter.
It can be yours for €2,195. Not at all cheap, but hey it’s your money!
Now, here comes my question. If money wasn’t the issue, and you could totally afford any bag you wanted, which one of those 2 would you choose? The Victoria tote is obviously less expensive, and based on their measurements they are almost the same size. Before you answer my question, let me show you the other color available for the Victoria tote.
Victoria Beckham’s Victoria structured leather tote in red, can be found on Net-a-Porter, for €2.195.
I’m sure you’ve already know my pick. I love grey, in every shade and I love this one too, but I couldn’t possibly resist to this beautiful classic red tote. It almost made it into my wishlist. If only it wasn’t 2.195€.
So, this is your turn, which one would you choose for yourself? The classic leather and suede doctor bag, by The Row, or the Victoria mini tote by Victoria Beckham?
If you choose the 2nd one, you can also tell me your color of preference in the comments section below.
I would also like to know if you like those little polls. I thought it is a nice way to participate, especially if you aren’t a blogger. I know many people like to read blogs without having one themselves, or others prefer to read but not leave a comment. This is a way for you to share your opinion with the rest of us. And don’t be shy; you don’t have to be a blogger to leave a comment. New readers are always welcome. But apart from that I love polls. I loved them, even when I wasn’t a blogger, and I love them now. I vote in them in every chance I find. 🙂
And of course new followers are always welcome too, so if you aren’t already one, you can become by following the links below, or by using the GFC widget on the sidebar. To those of you who are already followers of this blog, I want to say a big thank you, for supporting me. It means a lot to me.
J adore!!!!!!!!! Tres beau sac!!! Surtout rouge!!!
Thank you Angela!
I love the first one!! 🙂

Thank you for your vote Claire! 🙂
I’d go for Victoria’s bag, as I like it’s shape more! Oh and I would get it in grey!

Yes, the shape of Victoria bag is much better in my opinion. And grey is a great color, I would love to have both (If I was rich, hehe 🙂 )

Glad you liked it. Thank you for passing by.
Wow for the black bag by The Row, I loved it, but…. you are right, that price tag!!!!!!! But I voted for the Victoria Beckham tote, in red of course, my favorite color!!!! But again, that price tag? I was going to buy the D and G bag, as I told you, and it was noooot that price, and I already found it a lot! Finally, I found among the pile of things I have and I forget, a nice bag that has 3 zippers and then I decided not to buy the D and G anymore (I have one that I barely use!)
Anyway, I may add a paypal button on my blog and will get 1 pound from each nice friend/reader and then by the end of the week I’ll be able to buy that looooovely amazing red tote!
I didn’t know you liked grey, it’s a great color, very elegant, very versatile in fact!
Tomorrow someone here will send some interesting things… a bit heavy little box! Who is that person??? 🙂

I knew you would prefer the red one! I know that you love red. I don’t have many red clothes, I don’t know why, but I like red accessories. If you have a similar bag to the one of D&G, you don’t have to buy another one of course. And I know that they are pricey, but much less expensive than many other brands.
haha you should definitely add a paypal button. It’s a great idea. Donations are good. And women can understand another woman’s need to buy another bag or a pair of shoes.
And yes I love greyyy…I had phases when I was obssessed with teal, and then I got obssessed with grey. I’m still in that phase, but I added nude for warm months and camel for cooler ones.
Oh really? hehe Why is it heavy? I hope you didn’t put many things in it. I don’t want to burden you. And it’s such a coincidence cause I finally wrapped yours, and hopefully tomorrow my mom will send it to you. It took me a while, I know, I’m sorry. Thank you so much for sending me this package! 🙂
Filakia polla my sweet Denise!
I can’t chose which one i prefer more! I love them both! 🙂
Yes, they’re both really nice. But those colors made my choice easier.
I love the grey one! 🙂

That grey one is my favorite. I love those clean lines, absolutely amazing. I wish I had money which I could spend for that bag. I love grey as well in any shade.
Ramona recently posted..learning French
Yes me too. Grey is a lovely color.
Ah but I see you voted for “The Row” one. hehe
I love that gray bag!

I’m going to go for the first one by the Row though if possible I’d want it in that fire engine red!
Lots of love from Sydney,

I loved the first one!!! It looks really beautiful. But the grey one and the red one are also very nice. I just bought a grey bag (I think it was 200 times cheaper than the one you showed 😉 omg how that sounds!!! And I like polls, so give us more to vote 🙂

hehe A bag doesn’t have to be so expensive to look nice. I have many cheap bags that look as amazing. The only difference is the materials used and the process of making it.
Love the red bag!

Thank you for your comment Deniz!

I didn’t even notice that detail, but you’re right. The Row one doesn’t have double handles! 🙂
I’m strangely attracted to The Row.
“the price is over the top, but let’s not think about that” hahahaha m;areseis!!

I can see why you like these, but I can also see why you’re not getting them. Soo expensive. I really love the bag from the row!

I like them a lot, they are chic and well-designed, but way overpriced!!
Not in a million years would I ever pay such amount for these bags!
I like the grey one!
