Fendi To You Brown Patchwork Bag
When I first learned of the To You Bag by Fendi last year, I thought that it was such an innovative, unique, and functional purse. It can be worn as an oversized clutch or you can throw it over your shoulder for day wear. How awesome is that? And recently, bags that convert from dressy night clutch to casual shoulder bag have become the new favorite pieces of arm candy for many, including myself.
Even though I had wanted this bag for a while, I knew there was no way I would be able to afford it. So it just became another designer bag that was out of my reach, until Saks.com was having a handbag sale with big percent mark downs. And I couldn’t believe it when I saw the To You on sale from an in-your-dreams price of $1595 marked down to only $638.60. I know that $600 is still a lot for a bag, but for me it was worh it because I had wanted this particular purse for a while now. So I jumped on it and ordered the bag the next day after gathering advice on which color to get from my fellow Bag Forum members. And obviously, I opted for the brown. Below are two pictures of me wearing it in clutch style and shoulder bag style:
So was the bag all that I thought it would be? Without question! This bag was so much more gorgeous in person than on the Saks website. I couldn’t believe how wonderful this bag looked after taking it out of the black nylon dustbag that it was tucked in. And was it worth the price? Well, I think that I got such an awesome deal on this bag. So yes, it was worth the sale price that I paid and I have no complaints. However, I don’t think that I would have paid full price for it. Instead, I’d rather get a classic for that much money. But overall, I totally love my new Fendi To You bag in beautiful brown patchwork suede and nappa leather. And the panel that converts it from clutch to shoulder bag was beautifully crafted. Here is a picture of how it gets folded over and opens by the zipper pull:
So to anyone who is considering this bag, I say go for it if you can. I couldn’t be happier with mine!
