Happy Holiday to My Mom, Round 1 -- Bottega Veneta Houndstooth Intrecciato Tote

Another of my many obsessions is getting my mom, one of the two most important people who care me probably even more than as I care about them, the finest and the most beautiful things in the world. She's the only person that I admire and her life story is the only book that I'll never get bored reading.  

I do sometime get overboard with buying her presents, according to my taste, especially around holiday season. But nothing makes happier than watching her enjoy all the luxuries because she deserves them all. 

This Bottega Veneta Houndstooth Intrecciato Tote is from past season, probably fall 2009. I was reluctant to get it for her because of the larger than life price tag. I knew she'd be mad if she ever found out the price. I somehow bumped into this bag during a recent visit to the BV flagship store at New York, and it is still displayed on the shelf with a price tag of about $2600. It was just brutal for a tote bag, even with the heavenly pattern and shape. 

So I turned to the almighty eBay, the best place to shop for past season goodies. And surprise, surprise! I found a brand new one with almost 70% off! What a miracle! 

The one thing that I just can't resist from this bag, besides the houndstooth intrecciato, is the distorted shape. A laid back and casual shape that is already fixed into the leather trim, no matter how you carry it. I've never seen any craftsmanship like this :) 

If you're on the edge of freak out for last minute holiday shopping, check out the Cruise collection on

They're also available at following on-line retailers:

Since I won't be able to give it to her until February, the Chinese Spring Festival, I might carry it myself for a while :)

  5. Andres: I was going to get her a Chanel bag from the cruise collection, but the one that I laid my eye on is out of my budget and... just no where to find--!

  6. We certainly agree! Every mothers deserve it and your mother must be happy to have you as a son! Hence, good choice ;) we love this bag!

    Cheers, B & Liv

  7. I too am a big fan of Bottega Veneta's clean, calm and unbearable lushness. I also once bought my mum a Prada bag that sits 7 years later in its box in a shelf in her closet.
