What made me choose the color pink

I was looking for either a beige, white or pink designer bag that I could use for both the day and night. I like to have 2 main designer bags that go with pretty much everything that I use the most and then more evening or casual bags I can rotate in. Pinks a neutral as far as I’m concerned as I have so much of it.

I ended up with the pink Versace bag as beige was a hard color to find the right shade of and it tends to wash me out. I also already have a large white tote and a small white Versace clutch and recently sold my large pink Versace tote bag that was an older style so now don’t have a pink bag. Which is kind of shocking since it’s my favorite color.

What made me choose the Versace La Medusa bag shape

I wanted a top handle bag that would be large enough for my phone. I also love gold chain straps strap and structured styles like mini tote bags. I wanted a classic but fashion forward style and the Versace La Medusa small tote handbag is the newest bag from their Spring Summer 2022 runway show. It’s so new I couldn’t find photos of this exact one anywhere beside from the runway shows. If I could afford every color in this bag, I probably would have it.

I was looking at the Dior Lady bag but that feels even more classic and a little more formal to me. I was also looking at Chanel but I want to leave that for buying a black bag when I’m back in London next Summer. The La Medusa Versace bag is also a newer design.

I’d seen the Versace La Medusa bag in black and gold and loved it. What I didn’t love about the pink version was the matching acrylic chain strap. Acrylics very on trend this season and has grown on me but it will date. However, Versace sells a chunky gold chain shoulder strap that you can swap it with. It’s pretty pricey but I’ve also been using it on my white Versace bag as the chains removable to be able to convert it into a clutch.

This is what I love about Versaces designs, they’re so versatile. As now I can swap out shoulder strap and create 4 looks with 1 bag: pink chain, pink leather strap, gold chain (bought separately), without a chain & carrying it by the top handle. The acrylics good for casual looks for the day and the gold chain for nights out or for when I’m wearing gold accessories.

Why I chose this size Versace La Medusa bag

I wanted a bag that I could use for both the day and night and it had to be big enough to fit my phone (the iPhone 13 Pro is basically 6″). I’ve been downsizing and minimizing what I put in my bags anyway. As it’s better for their shape and the handles. The Versace La Medusa bag only comes in 2 sizes. So that made the decision easier for me as the small Versace tote bag works better with my petite frame and the medium is too big to use for the evening and doesn’t come in pink.

Versace Small La Medusa handbag measurements:

Depth 3.9 in
Handle 2.8 in
Height 7.1 in
Strap 19.7 in
Width 8.7 in

What material is the La Medusa Versace bag

I’m really picky when it comes to material. I’d passed on a lot of bags because they were made of lambskin leather which as pretty as it looks is fragile and scratches easily. The La Medusa Versace bag is 100% leather and textured not smooth. I’ve had my Prada Saffiano tote for 8 years and it’s worn so well because it’s textured so I knew I wanted this kind of leather.

Why am I loyal to Versace

If you’ve read the blog for a while, you know I’m pretty loyal to Versace. I love their glamorous, feminine, statement making styles. They’re not known for their subtle prints or designs and I’m fine with that. Their sizing and qualities always consistent and things like the gold chain handbag strap I bought can be used with a lot of their bags.

How a bag shapes my wardrobe

To me the bag or shoes is the base for the outfit as it’s normally the most expensive piece and normally makes the biggest statement. Once I knew my Versace tote bag was going to be pink, I could figure everything else out.

I just bought the Dior ribbon slingback heels in pink patent to go with them and flat pink slides will probably be the next addition as I love coordinated or monochromatic looks. I also know I have lots of pink in my wardrobe already and it’s a color that goes with black, white, and pretty much all of my Summer wardrobe.

I’m excited for it to get warmer again so that I can use the small pink Versace La Medusa bag with my Versace outfit and the Versace bralette with denim shorts and the original pink acrylic chain for a more casual look. As well as the new pink and red Burberry silk scarf my friend just got me for my birthday. As styled in the Versace Spring/Summer 2022 runway show below. I can’t wait to put it all together.
