Featured Bag Friday

Friday, November 20, 2015

Yay! It's FRIDAY and today I am featuring my only Givenchy bag - the classic Antigona.  Mine is in the medium size and in the color fuschia.  I do recall them having a large size in this style, but - to my knowledge - they are no longer making it.  

At first glance, the leather on this bag looks really fussy, but let me tell you it is not in the least.  I've had it out in the rain {not purposely} and it held up great!  It features a super smooth, large zipper on the top, two top handles and a {nonremovable} shoulder strap.  The gold hardware on mine makes the bag look extra lux!  I am personally a huge fan of gold.  And the amount that you can fit in this bag is unreal.  I watched YouTube videos on it before I took the plunge and I heard a few people refer to it as the Mary Poppins bag because of how much you can carry.  It really can turn into a bottomless pit if you allow it to.  

The Antigona has recently become one of the It bags in the designer handbag realm and I've seen so many pictures of celebrities carrying theirs online and in magazines.  I think it has joined the ranks with other handbags as classics - like the Balenciaga City, the Louis Vuitton Speedy and the Celine Luggage - to name a few.  

On my YouTube binge-watching streak of reviews on this style, I even heard it referred to as a "basic bitch" bag because of how many people own one.  What's your opinion on it?  Too basic for you or classic?!

Stay fabulous xoxo,
