We’ve been living vicariously through Sarah Lahbati’s fashion content lately. She’s still staying safely at home like many of us, but she certainly doesn’t seem “in the house bored.” In fact, she’s been giving us fashion lovers life with her nicely styled OOTDs—whether it’s a silver glitter top worn with cargo shorts, or a logo tee tucked into a pleated mini skirt.
The photos of a recent fun shoot that she posted on Instagram had an ’80s bent that made us stop and take notice. Perched on her bed, pink-power-shouldered in a d.d. daily blazer and black leggings, a little accoutrement seemed to pop from each picture. If your eyes trained to that teeny chain-strap purse with the gilded V, then you’re following our thoughts.
Well, that little quilted wonder is Versace’s Virtus Quilted Belt Bag from the Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Yes, it’s a belt bag. It comes with a detachable belt so you can use it around your waist or with the chain strap on your shoulder. Closer inspection will show you that the serif-font V is decorated with a golden vine of leaves with a solitary bloom. Feminine and powerful all at once—definitely the brand’s house code.
Two versions of it are available at the Versace boutique at The Shoppes at Solaire: the quilted leather style that Sarah is using in the photos above, and a design in smooth leather.
This isn’t the first time Sarah’s styled a small belt bag with a blazer, we loved her take on it with a darker suit jacket before. That play on proportions, the miniature juxtaposed against the oversized, seems to be what makes it all come together into a picture-perfect ’fit.
