Let us call this Fauxtegga Veneta. We have all seen the renaissance of the iconic brand Bottega Veneta, it was always a classic brand that has consistently remained fabulous but was just overshadowed by its fellow brand’s loud prints and trendy monograms. But with the help of Daniel Lee at the helm, he breathed in a new lease of life into the brand without moving it away from Bottegas classical roots. He brought back the BIG bag trend! Oh, how I have missed it – without having to play Jenga to fit everything in my tinnie tiny bags!
I got myself a piece of the New Bottega, but I think it is more classic and will take me through the years. The woven Bottega bag is a classic and I am pretty obsessed with this particular bag.
I am also obsessed with the big clutch that I am sure you have seen everywhere! I am reluctant to buy the big Dumpling (that is my name for her – isn’t it cute?) because it is a clutch bag, and it is not like I can use it on a day to day basis. Plus is it a super pricey piece and it is so hard to find. I found some fabulous dupes that I am considering. From the Mama Dumpling to the Baby Dumpling (aka the mini clutch and cross-body) to the fabulous mules that have been everywhere! I have got the best dupes for you if you do not want to break the bank for something that might end but being a fun fashion piece. Or become an ‘it’ item for a short space of time, then I think it is not worth the investment in my opinion.
I have got some fab dupes, which is much more affordable. Plus they are made of real leather and I have also got a fab vegan leather version too.
