Fourth of July Fabulous: The Olimpia bag


I feel like everyone around me is ditching America and heading off to Europe this summer.  All I hear is, “Oh, I’m going to Paris for two weeks on Thursday.” Or, “I’m so sorry I can’t come to your birthday Gabs, I’ll be in Amsterdam for the weekend.” I’m bitter, OK? But just because I am not being whisked off to Italy this coming Fourth of July weekend doesn’t mean I can’t pretend, right?  Well thank the stars and stripes because Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta just released a brand new line of Olimpia bags at their Rodeo and Melrose locations and its pretty blue color is suddenly my Independence Day inspiration.  Pair this Italian bag with a dreamy red silk jumper and casual white sandals for the holiday, and I bet you’ll forget you’re not on a boat cruising along Cinque Terre.

With this Italian bag on your arm, why not drop some chic new phrases at your Fourth of July festivities?

Hello, my name is Fabulous:  Ciao, il mio nome è favoloso.

Fireworks: Fuochi d’artificio

Where is my red cup? Dove è la mia tazza rossa?

The grand finale: Il gran finale

Cheers to the red, white, and blue!:  Evviva il rosso, bianco e blu!
