Fendi Vintage Leather Olsen Twins Tote
This bag is destined to become a hit. Meet the new Vintage Leather Twin Tote, named suitably after the Olsen twins who made the real vintage exotic crocodile version a popular sought-after piece. Remember Ashley was photographed with this bag almost every other day a couple years back? I don’t remember seeing a photograph of the vintage Croc beauty on MK’s arm, of course they’re sisters and share bags, so it is probable that this bag made it over to MK’s closet for a brief time. (If you browse through the archive photos of celebrities with their bags over in TBF you will spot each MK and Ash sporting each other’s arm candy.) Although, it’s such a gorgeous day tote, that I wouldn’t be surprised if Ash kept that beauty all for herself. I would!
Now, I as well as you (and even MK) have a chance to get your hands on the Olsen-Style tote! Fendi just re-released the vintage style tote for fall, available in regular leather over at Saks.
If you’re still craving the exotic version contact fendi, I’m sure if you are dying to have it in crocodile, they will special order it for you. Although that’s not going to come cheap, it might cost you a hefty amount. I personally would rather try my luck at scoring the real vintage exotic crocodile version on eBay. It will be worth every penny. This is a style that never goes out of fashion, so it is definitely an investment piece. I couldn’t locate one in the auction houses website, although they do pop up occasionally (like 1 every 6 months), and usually are in the range of $4k to $9k.
For those of you who don’t care for the exotic version, stop off at Saks. The fresh new Twin tote in leather retails for $1,630. Very reasonable when compared to the exotic version. Plus the style is classic, one that will last years with out being “so last season”. Right Fendi only has the black style out and in stock over at fabulous online fashion boutique eluxury. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for other colors… or even a croc-embossed version (how budget friendly would that be for those of us who want the crocodile-print look, without the exotic price tag?)
The newer Fendi Twin tote shares all the similar features as it’s relative, the true-vintage. Same characteristics, size, hardware, capacity, etc. Dressed in smooth grained leather, accessorized with polished metal hardware, and features double rolled leather handles with double signature “f” link attachments (4.5″ drop, perfect for arm or shoulder wear). The mouth of the bag is an open top with a magnetic closure, which when open reveals the fine textile lining, a super spacious interior and a couple easy-access interior zipped pockets. The bottom of the bag is a flat leather base with protective metal feet. 15.5″ x 12″ x 6″ (at widest point)
Do you guys like this new re-introduced style?

Ashley Olsen and her Balenciaga Bag
Last week I posted how some people just wear a bag too much. Referring to Ashley Olsen. But even though Ashley (as well as MK) have used their gorgeous vintage Fendi crocodile tote over-and-over again for well over a year, I will never get sick of it. Well right after posting that, little miss Ash has been spotted all over town with her long-time forgotten about black Balenciaga bag. I didn’t see that one coming.

Spotted: Little Miss Ashley Fuller Olsen roaming the streets with her hot new Givenchy Nightingale Designer Handbag on arm. Isn’t it a beauty! I adore the Nightingale, the bag is simple but stunning. Definitely an all-day bag from early morning to late night – especially in the fabulous metallic gold color.
A few of the Givenchy Nightingale bags can be discovered at Barneys.com. Right now all they have in-stock is the distressed leather medium satchel with ostrich handles (khaki) for $1,695, medium metallic satchel (gold, black, or marron) for $1,895, and the large metallic distressed satchel (brown) for $2,495.

eBay Alert: Olsen Twins with Hermes Green Porosus Crocodile Constance Handbag
A couple days ago, purse borrower Mary-Kate published in the new york times style magazine about her bag borrowing ways with her sister Ash. . . “I borrowed it from my sister Ashley. I wore it to an event and never gave it back. Luckily, she’s moved on to another bag, so I’m safe for now. I’m not quite sure how many bags I have, but let’s just say I have a few. When I find a bag I like, I tend to wear it to death until I become obsessed with another one. This probably happens three to five times a year.”
Hum, I wonder if she ever gave back that gorgeous red Bottega Veneta (bo-tay-ga ve-ne-tah) clutch she borrowed back in January.
