Well, its happened again—this should no longer come as a surprise to anyone. This time, it was a covetable clutch that could convert to a crossbody…yes I f%#*ing love alliteration. I first saw it while in their flagship store for…well, who needs a reason to be in Burberry?
My eye always goes towards unique details, and this instance is no different: dyed pony hair, funky scrunch closure, hidden D-rings on the sides to clip crossbody strap to…it was luxe, it was fun, it was practical…until I laid my eyes on the price tag. No one enjoys paying luxury prices, but thank goodness for friends in fashion 🙂 I stalked it on several different occasions. Only two are documented below.
Always a fiend for funky textures, the pony hair drew me in. Trying to justify a leopard bag? Pfft…as if anyone needs a justification for a leopard bag! The classic pattern goes in and out of style what seems like every year. Aside from my yearning for a snow-leopard bag this season, I’m a tad too particular for my own good sometimes—Ms. DVF, if only you hadn’t added the accent colors, I would’ve succumbed to your white ocelot print this winter, but maybe next year… This bad boy added a lustful detail with the oversized padlock. Though gold ain’t always my thang, it works so well with the Crush I was more than willing to overlook that detail. Unlike my last Want, Lust, Must Have post, this came as a Christmas present from my boo. Sure to jazz up any black on black on black ensemble—as if you thought I wore color, ha!—I’m ecstatic to break out this bag this season and for many years to come.
What are your luxury classic bag aspirations, ladies?
