Tod's D-Bag

This Tod's D-Bag is absolutely gorgeous. I want it. The beautiful leather, the elegant shape, the simple hardware -- the styling is just perfect. But the name? D-Bag? Well, it sounds like a tidied up version of "douche bag" and that is a bit of a turn off.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I know alot of people I would like to give a D bag too. Cute tho!

Caroline said...

Lovely bag...but for $1500.00??? I mean come on! I can't justify that price.

diane said...

Well....it IS big enough to hold everything needed for douching. Not that I would know or anything.

Laura Trevey said...

I love it too... plain without all the "stuff"... gorgeous!

bananas. said...

A d-bag you can take with you shopping, who will hold all your crap while you run errands and still make you look good? Hmmm...doesn't sound so bad to me. Wish all d-bags were like this.

Vivienne said...

Because I wouldn't pay more than $100 for a bag (at the very, very, very most) I shall never have my own D-Bag. sigh.
(Such a bad name...)

What a gorgeous bag...what a horrible name... :o

Pretty Little World said...

You should absolutely get one of these!! Not only would it allow you the opportunity for endless "D Bag" jokes, but the leather on Tod's bags is really quite lovely! And even though they're kind of insanely priced, this would definitely be a classic for like, forever.

Christiejolu said...

D-bag...LOL!

All kidding aside it is a nice bag. I love the feel of soft leather. Target has one similar. If I can find a photo I will send it to you!

Christina In Wonderland said...

Ha! That is totally priceless.

Actually, I'd pay for it, even though it's called a "D-bag". I call people that all the time, so I could then use my d-bag to hit other d-bags in their d-bag heads.

The genius of it is so great!

Down and Out Chic said...

oooh, very pretty but the name is kind of...oh i don't know...hmmmm...silly?

~KS said...

D-bag.... hmmm... marketing must have been sleeping when they named this product!! But love the bag itself!

perfectionishuman said...

I love the color.. I had a friend who insisted that tan = tack and I was just like "SILENCE!" love it.
And also fun fact - douchebag is my fave insult :D x

Kellie said...

That is exactly what I was thinking. Douche bag? Really? Couldn't they come up w/ a better name for it? Oh well at least it would get you a laugh if you got it and told everyone what it was called. :)

Raina Cox said...

Given that Tod's is an Italian company, I'm guessing something was lost in translation.

Diana said...

ugh, tod's always remind me of those ugly ugly ugly loafers they had a few years back. i can never like them after that, and this just doesn't convince me!

Iva said...

that is the best D-Bag I've ever seen!! I guess not all D-bags are created equal... apparently some are actually the kind you want to have around?! ...hmmm learn something new everyday ;)

Christy said...

Ha! I love you!
I just saw this in Vogue literally two hours ago and had the SAME thoughts!
Beautiful, but what's with that name!?

baaahahaha!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I thought the same thing when I saw the name of the bag! It is a pretty darn classic bag though. It may go on sale at Nordstrom's right? I hate paying retail.

Emelie Stanfield said...

Hahaha! Mrketing Mishap ROYALE.

Kristin said...

I would love to know who the genius that come up with that name is!

adrienzgirl said...

Love the bag, but I am with you. It definitely needs a new name!

D-bag? Really???

WendyB said...

That name has been TORMENTING me.

L. said...

The only "logical" explanation for the name is if your BF/GF/Sheep has been a total D-bag lately, he/she/it can get back into your good graces by getting you the bag. Forget it, it is not logical at all...

L. said...

oh I got it! I got it! "Only a D-bag would spend $1500 on this bag"!

Is it Friday yet?

Mrsblogalot said...

That's exactly the first thing that came into my head when I saw D-Bag. What the hell's wrong with that douchebag?

Karls said...

Stylish... slight Mum's handbag in the 70s/early 80s when she had the glomesh purse look. I like!

Awesome Sara said...

lol, when i saw the title of the post i thought " is j confused? its called t-bag..." lol! love the bag! it seems big enuff to hold my sex toys in a sleek professional way...

Asylum Dolly said...

hahahah! When I saw the title of this post i thought it was going to be dirty. Of course, it still has the potential to be dirty if you fill it with sex toys, like Awesome sara suggested.

Missy said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!

Brown Girl said...

I want a D Bag too! So cute!

Ela said...

D bag is very purdy. D name sucks a little.

Happy Wednesday Drolly :)

...love Maegan said...

pearls said...

I know a few people that could use this D-BAG....

Big Red said...

I could never fall in love with a D-bag... again...

SabinePsynopsis said...

It sounds like they've been running out of names... But I agree, the bag is beautiful. Exactly the kind of bag you would use EVERY DAY without ever thinking because it goes with pretty much everything.

Haute World said...

LOL... you're right, a lovely bag but such an unfortunate name. What's next, T-Bag? ;-)

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

lol. oh that's a classy one. i like anything in tan shades. buy, buy, buy!

Lindsay said...

gorgeous. D-bag is one of my favorite insults. I may have to forgive Tod for the name though...

TERI REES WANG said...

Ooh, What color?

I like the white for you, knowing you generally step out in black.

"D-Bag" is slightly less worse that the clothing line "T-bags".

Tragic.

L.A. Daze said...

I love Tod's. And although D-bag sucks...it's named after Princess Diana I believe. So that makes it right again in my world.

free PR articles said...

It's pretty, but not $1500 pretty. The name is just a marketing mystery to me.

Anonymous said...

Named after Diana,hence D Bag.
