Valentino Kaleido Tote and Gemme Frame

This bag give me hope that decadence will once again reign. Not that this bag is particularly fabulous or to die for but a giant bag encrusted with sparkling stones for 3 grand can only mean one thing – disposable income. And lots of it. Everything for fall is all about over indulgence and glamour and to me, that is pure joy and optimism. I prefer the frame, it makes more sense going over the top with a smaller evening look. Kaleido Tote for $2995 and Gemme Frame for $2980. Both at Bergdorf Goodman. I also want to pay tribute to Michael Jackson with a bag that is representative of his aesthetic of flash and fantasy. And a flash he was, he is gone before his time. He will be missed but he left us with a lot of memories and incredible music that has been the soundtrack to many of our lives.

    I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the pattern on this bag that hurts my eyes.

    Disposable Income has never sounded so good. Personally, I welcome giant encrusted gems on a bag, like the Kaleido tote. But I wonder how versatile the tote can be with that much flashiness, it definitely is not a bag we can casually bring into work. It indeed remind us of MJ’s style, and I hope the king of pop rests in peace..
