I love Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s luxury handbag and accessory line, The Row. I just happen to cry every time I see the insanely high price tag attached to one of their handbags that I happen to like. The bag you see pictured here is no different- The Row Floral Beaded Flap Bag!
When I first saw the The Row Floral Beaded Flap Bag, I thought it was made of fabric with a simple tapestry-inspired print. I could not have been more wrong! Upon closer inspection, I realized that the entire bag is covered in tiny glass seed beads. They are sort of tan-gold in color and they have a subtle sheen. The look reminds me of vintage beaded bags you might find at an antique store. What sets this particular piece apart from other beaded bags though is the embroidery. The deep red floral pattern is actually embroidery nestled in with the beading. I honestly have not seen anything like it before! It truly is a unique look. Adding to that uniqueness is the cross body strap. You don’t see quill ostrich leather too often anymore. I actually think it adds to the whole vintage look too!
I see this bag pairing beautifully with a little black dress, where the beading can be showcased against a contrasting background. Just watch out for that price tag- $6900!
