Bagopedia's Rating: 3 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia is aware that Versace bas been making bags that are edgy, bold, and creative. They are for sure not looking for classic and permanent look. It really is a summer fun bag. The details and workmanship is beautiful. However, for Bagopedia, it is a choice between a vacation or this bag.

Bagopeida's Rating: 2 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopeida likes the bag itself. However, the unnecessary antique looking military buckle in the front doesn't add interests to the bag but only add a lot of weight. Bagopedia suggests the buckle can be added on the side of the bag or on the corners.

Mother's Day Special- PUCCI Printed Beach Tote

PUCCI Printed Beach Tote
Saks Fifth Avenue

Bagopedia's Rating: 4 Bags (Out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: After reviewing so many bags, Bagopedia chose this bag for my Mother as this year Mother's Day present. This bag has a PUCCI signature Swirl print outside, a removable pouch with gold color chain inside. The adjustable handles are leather. The 21" width is a perfect bag for beach and poolside. My Mother comes to use my pool everyday in the summer. This bag as a gift will suggest that summer is coming and she is welcome to come to use the pool anytime she wants.

Bag: CC Skye "The Onie Lambsine Messenger"
Price: $595
Who Carries it: Olivia Palemo,
Where to Buy: Bloomingdales,

Bagopedia's Rating: 3.5 Bags (out of 5)

Bagopedia's Comment: Bagopedia likes the design of this bag that goes between a hobo and a briefcase. It looks nice on a modern business woman especially if you are working in a fashion business. The embossed python look makes the bag edger. It is a CC Skye's tradition. This bag was once sold-out in Bloomindales in NYC. Fortunately they got more. The black version is more for Bagopedia but the tan color is also gorgeous in the summer depending on which one Bagopeida receives it as a "Promotion" piece.
