camp vivier 2010



Excuse me while I kick myself for not booking a flight to LA in time for Refinery 29's East/West Tag Sale. In addition to skipping out on Thursday's kick off party, I also missed out on the debut of Clare Vivier's CAMP VIVIER collection at 50% off. 50% OFF?! Now that's just not fair. The collection is available online of course but I don't really have the money to spend at the moment. Oh well. I'd originally been saving up for the messenger bag but I may just end up changing my mind when I get the money for this one. BF's sister actually has the all leather Tropézienne bag in brown but I think I'd prefer the canvas one because of the color contrast. What do you think? Should I save up for my original bag or go for the summer-friendly canvas tote? If you haven't already had the chance, check out the rest of Clare Vivier's collection and her blog.

That is beautiful. Words cannot fathom my lust for that bag!

TAIWO said...

I agree with Jess, this bag is to die for. I cannot get enough of those rich straps.
Very tasteful and becoming. Love it.

Ganymede Girl said...

Overall I think I prefer the messenger bag but both are nice.

Christie said...

I like the messenger more, mainly because you could wear it over the shoulder (like the tote) or cross-body. I think you'll get more use out of it.

Love this bag! Such a classic!!

kaleah said...

eh, the messenger bag is kind of boring... it looks like an old lady bag!

the canvas bag is also kind of old ladyish- but the color contrast is more interesting to look at i guess!

i bet you could find better...

for cheaper.

eleanor said...

such a hard choice!
i like the canvas one best though!

lol obviously you're getting paid to promote the website or clothing store or whatever it is... subtle

talking about subtle, you might want to reconsider your comment. who cares if shes being paid? dont think she'd be writing about something she didnt have the least interest in either. jeez.

calivintage said...

dude, ever since you posted the messenger bag on tumblr, i've been obsessing over it. it's my favorite for sure. but honestly, all of her stuff is amazing and i bet you'd be happy with any of it!

Karafina said...

i would go with the messenger... it seems more functional... this one is very pretty, but i would stick to the original plan!

btw, now i too am obsessing over it. thanks! hah

From her collection i´d choose the flat work tote or the french linen zip sac... but from these two i´d prefer the canvas one to the messenger, because of the eye-catching details and contrast. Concerning the price i´d take none of them, buy some leather straps, silk and canvas and sew a similar one but one-of-a-kind :)
best wishes to you

I saw this bag and it was pretty cute! I'm sure you would've loved it!

To anonymous #2-- pretty sure Annabel's aware of the Federal Trade Commission's laws about paid bloggers... don't be dumb or rude.

Hannah said...

They're all beautiful, but for me, the messenger wins. I have a thing for long straps and gold hardware!

FlashFash said...

That is one great bag!

I love that bag! I'd buy the green one if I had the money to spare. I wish these lame anonymous trolls would go away, they are doing this to all my favorite bloggers :/

I like the canvas tote but the messenger bag is so stylish :) Since it is summer, I would go for the tote!

bravegrrl said...

wow, i love them all. a new thing on my list now... thanks :) haha...

but yes, i could easily own them all and still use them... but i think the messenger bag could be used year round :)

Sara Bentley said...

This tote is gorgeous and I absolutely adore the messenger bag -- perfect!

I have the original Trop and the Navy Messenger (my credit card bill haunts me...) and I love both. I don't know that I could really weigh in an opinion because of that, but I looooooove the new canvas look of the Trop. Best of luck :)

Michelle Elaine said...

I vote the summer tote!

The Vegaran said...

Hmm, I, personally, like the canvas bag better for summer, but if we're talking long-term, than the messenger would do the job. So, it depends on what you're looking for, best option would be to get both :P, of course.

elauinc said...

i absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my messenger! go for it! I went to check out the canvas trop at the sale and though it's stylish, I decided to save my $ for the leather one. I've been lusting over the CViv collection for a while...

Messenger Bag!

Anonymous said...

You could just go somewhere else and get something similar for cheaper? Is it because they name is attached? I think they're both kind of ugly and not worth the money.

Annabel said...

anon - cool story bro

Shelby said...

i like the messenger the best. its always good when you can just sling it over your shoulder, epecially when you have lots to carry.

Shelby said...

I just saw this bad online and it reminded me of the messenger that you like except it's a fraction of the cost. Not sure if you would like it, but check it out anyway?
