Chloe Ethel Leather Tote

The Chloe Ethel Leather Tote – what can I say? I wish this bag were a house so I could live in it, or a person so it could be my best friend who would let me borrow clothes, if it were a puppy I would adopt it, name it ChicaBoom-Boom, and let it sleep on my bed. But in reality it is an astoundingly beautiful bag that, sadly, I can only admire from afar. The pinky mauve leather was the perfect choice and the over-sized pleats and hardware are big enough to add character to a purse of this size.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nappa Lil Lissy

Marc Jacobs delivers yet again with the Pretty Nappa Lil Lissy, part of his lower priced Marc line. From its supple quilted leather in bright grape to its unusual shape, it’s a true standout. The ties along the strap and the large side pockets lend it a unique quality for sure. If there’s any drawback, it’s in the small size strap. I prefer something just slightly longer. The price, though, is fabulous! Available for $264.60
