A Tribute to Saint Valentino

Lori and Nicole, our handbag buyer, were working diligently when they had a vision. Saint Valentino Garavani descended in a brilliant light from fashion Olympus and commanded them to carry His handbag collection.

"O, Lord but we would save for Thine luxury pricepoint," cried Lori.
"Plus Bergdorf's already has it," noted in Nicole.

And that is when, with a nod of his perfectly coiffed head, a suspiciously similar (but delightfully more reasonably priced) bag appeared in last week's deliveries.

This is a look worth stealing. Which is why we're immensely excited about High Fashion's tribute Valentino Rose Tote in black and silver (with studs!). The bag is the perfect summer tote: wider than tall with a light lining, you can stuff this full and still find what you need (relatively) quickly. The patent finish lends a timeless chic. You don't so much dress this bag up or down as it dresses you up, regardless of your efforts. The circling folds of the floral front are feminine without being whimsical or cute. We'd ditch the optional shoulder strap, tuck this under our arm and run into the madding crowd. In sum, it's the perfect statement bag. See the summer light and pick one up now.
