In this blog post, I’ll share 3 fall picks for bags and 3 fall picks for shoes that are currently available on Italist and are new styles as part of the FW22 season.

BAGS

Valentino Garavani Roman Shoulder Bag

Lambskin roman shoulder bag by Valentino Garavani, quilted design with tone-on-tone topstitching, iconic studs and tone-on-tone metal parts applied all-over, front swivel closure, interior flat pocket with zipper, two flat pockets open inside, removable sliding chain shoulder strap.

Made in: Italy

Color: Nero

Size and fit:

  • W 28 x H 16 x D 8 cm

My thoughts: A beautiful lambskin leather bag! I love the black metal studs. This all-black bag gives off punk-rock vibes. It would be perfectly coorded with Japanese punk styles as well! I can totally see this bag being paired with a Sex Pot Revenge skirt or a Putumayo dress. It would also look great more casually, with jeans and a sweater as we’re moving into crisp and cool autumn weather.

Versace Patent Bag in Red

Calfskin patent bag by Versace, shiny leather, contrasting embossed brand logo on the front, contrasting rigid chain handle, adjustable and removable shoulder strap in shiny leather, main compartment, welt pocket inside, contrasting press-stud brand logo inside.

Made in: Italy

Color: Claret+oro Versace

Size and fit:

  • W 16 x H 14,5 m x D 6,5 cm

My thoughts: My favorite color is red! Love the shiny patent leather of this bag. This bright lipstick red hue is gorgeous. The medusa logo is really cool too, and I think this bag would be a great statement piece for any outfit. Even if you don’t wear red, the pop of red color from this bag will make your outfit look more interesting. This will go well with black, white, or neutral colors. It would also look cool with pink! The chunky handle is very trendy.

Fendi Fendigraphy Bag

Calfskin fendigraphy bag by Fendi, smooth leather design, top zip fastening, single adjustable leather handle, iconic brand signature in antiqued brass embossed on the base, inside welt pocket.

Made in: Italy

Color: L.rose+ovibr+os

Size and fit:

  • W 27 x H 16 x D 9 cm

My thoughts: Love the crescent moon shape of this bag! I also like that the Fendi logo isn’t plastered all over this bag. Instead, FENDI is discreetly placed at the bottom of the bag with antiqued brass. It’s cool and unique! The handle is adjustable so you can make it smaller or larger as you like it. You can hold it in your hands as a handbag, or use it as a shoulder bag. The color is a fantastic neutral that will match many different outfits and colors. You can use this bag casually, or on more formal occasions.

SHOES

Bottega Veneta Black Padded Sandals

Padded sandals in black quilted lambskin. Rubber-injected leather outsole.
Heel height: 9cm

Composition: 100% Lambskin

Made in: Italy

Color: BLACK

My thoughts: I absolutely adore the design of these shoes. So sophisticated and elegant! I love the quilted lambskin. It reminds me of the Chanel classic flap bag. These high heel sandals will be lovely with a little black dress. You can even wear them to elevate a pair of jeans. Even though I don’t wear heels often, I am seriously snagging a pair of these sandals for myself to wear on special occasions or for a photoshoot. From all my fall picks in this post, this is the one I’m going to pick!

Prada Mary Jane Pumps

Calfskin mary jane pumps by prada, square toe on front, adjustable instep strap, geometric leather heel, embossed triangular applied plaque on front with contrasting signature, logo insole.
Composition: 100% % Calf Leather Bos Taurus, 100% % Calf Leather Bos Taurus

Made in: Italy

Color: Nero

My thoughts: Love the boxy shape of these mary jane shoes! The heel has a unique shape, and the pointed toe echoes the triangle shaped plaque of the Prada logo. The block heel style would make these high heeled pumps easier to wear. The adjustable strap would also keep your feet secure.

Gucci High Heel Printed Boots

Made in: Italy

Color: Beige/Nero

My thoughts: I love the printed snakeskin pattern on these trendy high heel boots! It looks like these boots will come up to your knees, and the contrasting black piece also has the etchings of faux snakeskin into the material. These are definitely eye-catching boots!

Out of all 6 of these fall picks, which one is your favorite? When you shop at Italist, be sure to use my coupon code “RF-220X-8D5254” for the chance to win $500 in store credit!

Review: Evil Live Heart Bags

[Review: Positive]
I purchased two of Evil Live’s heart bags when they were first released, since my local lolita community conducted a group order for them during the Christmas time discount special. At first, I was not sure if I wanted to buy the bags or not since I did not know what the quality would be like. In addition, I have never heard of “Evil Live” before. Once I decided to commit to the group order, I had to choose how many bags I wanted to purchase and which colorways to pick. This was a difficult decision because I did not want to buy two and end up disliking them, or on the other hand, buy just one and then regretting the choice if I love the bag.
There are four colors in this first-release series: BlackHolic, Misty Cream, Strawberry Sherbet Pink, and Merlot Wine.
After much internal debate, I chose to buy one bag in the wine colorway and one bag in the cream colorway. The wine bag has a shiny patent finish, and the cream bag has a matte finish. The official colorway names are “Merlot Wine” and “Misty Cream.” Aren’t the names cute? >w<
Overall, I am very happy with the bags’ colors and sizing, as well as construction quality. Each bag is very roomy and comes with interchangeable straps and handles. You can wear the bag as a backpack, use it as a purse with two handles or with one handle, or you can wear it like an over-the-shoulder bag. The bag also has a pocket on the outside and pockets on the inside. The bow on the outside of the bag feels sturdy and well-constructed.
Here are two exterior photos and two interior photos of the Merlot Wine bag:
The Misty Cream bag looks the same, construction-wise.
Evil Live 3
I think I like the matte finish better than the shiny finish! But both of the bags are so nice. ^-^ I tested the zippers, and they seem to be of high quality too. The zippers did not catch or get stuck at all.
Evil Live 2
Each bag also comes with these handle sets. Look at that cute handle with the little bows! ❤ So adorable! Also, I love the little heart details on the bags themselves… Those little accents make the bag even nicer.
The Evil Live manager even included a cute hand-written note on a postcard and some free gifts inside each of the bags!

Here is my final review for the Evil Live Heart Bags:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆ (I love these two bags so much! I can’t wait to actually use them. <3)

Ordering Process and Shipping: ☆☆☆ (N/A: Since I joined a group order, I was not the one to take on the actual ordering of the bags. The person running the group order placed the order in December. The shipping for the wine bag took a while due to a factory delay. Note that the bags were shipped to the group order leader, and then I picked up the bags in person, in February.)

Communication: ☆☆☆☆ (On the postcard, the Evil Live manager provided an email. When I emailed the manager, I received a quick reply! The manager is very sweet and polite.)

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆ (The bags were stuffed with Korean newspapers to help them hold their shape, and the straps/handles were all inside the bags as well. The bags were wrapped and taped in bubble wrap. The packaging was nice, but there were some slight dents on the bag’s surface from the mailing process. This is very minor though, and not a problem!)

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ (The colors were true to the stock photos! I am pleased.)

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ (These bags are so cute! I love the heart detailing.)

Construction: ☆☆☆☆☆ (I do not see any problems with the construction. I love how roomy these bags are!)

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)
