My Neighbour is Nice




Apparently, my neighbour must be either very rich or a bit stupid to throw away this metallic leather bag from Bottega Veneta. The bag and the cute looking scarf was placed in a box together with some other stuff in the basement. The box had the following note tagged on: Please help yourself. What's left will be given to the salvation army (Fretex).

The bag is just lovely and fits great with the summer's metallic trend. The leather feels nice and soft, but still I'm a bit doubtful. Can it really be an authentic Bottega Veneta? I'm not that familiar with their bag, but I do know they're high class. Can anyone help me with authenticating it?

Real or faux, the bag goes well with today's simple outfit, that's comprised of a sweater from H&M and jeans from Fornarina

I know! Folk burde gjøre mer slikt, for hva noen er lei, kan andre ha bruk for. Og det er virkelig utrolig hva folk kaster!

Herregud så heldig du var. Nydelig veske. Bagen er vel super uansett autentisk/ikke men, tror jeg brukte denne siden da jeg fant en LV pung på loppis. http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/Is-your-authentic-designer-handbag-really-authentic_W0QQugidZ10000000000930568

Har ikke inntrykk av at Bottega Veneta er det mest kopierte merket.. Mulig at du har gjort et SINNSYKT kupp her;)

Takk for tipset, Ellen! Skal sjekke ut dette. Kan legge til at i samme eske lå det klær fra både Emanuel Ungaro og Betty Barcley. Det kan derfor tyde på at naboen har dyr smak, noe som igjen øker sjansen for at vesken er ekte...

Wow! That is ridiculous that your neighbor threw that away. But good for you! Super cute. It looks authentic to me.

Den er sikkert ekte når den lå sammen med annet designer-snæcks. Fy farao, så heldig du var med naboen din da! :) Nydelig veske altså.

I wish i had such neighbours! I think it's real, if you're not sure why don't you just ask them? They might know more than any other, all right, except if you are a walking fashion catalogue..

Couture bowl: I totally agree! And the leather feels really soft.

Hilde: Jeg kan nesten ikke tro det!;) Ennå mer "mystisk" blir det når jeg ikke vet hvem av naboene som har sanert den ut...


Joyce: The only problem is that I'm not sure which one of my neighbours the bag belonged to. I live in an apartment complex, and the boxes were placed in the common area...

The bag looks great!
Even if it's not original it is awesome to just randomly find handbags!
