Saks Sale!

November 6, 2008

Good things come to those who wait. I told you I was holding out for a good sale and now that the retailers are not doing so hot this quarter, they have a lot of good discounts. Helping the economy and getting good bargains in the process, what could be better? I pulled up a few things that I noticed that were full price yesterday, but as of this morning are a sweet deal. 😉

LAI North Star Tote in Blue Ostrich

October 30, 2008

I’m in the midst of packing for my vacation and I couldn’t resist checking out bags this morning. Multitask-er is a good description of me. Some people can call it ADD, but it’s more like a gift. But aren’t you glad I did! This gorgeous exotic blue tote must be mine! Mine Mine Mine! It comes in olive green too, but I’m all about the blues in my own wardrobe. Buy through Lux Couture for $2,300.

Jalda Python Julie Clutch

October 27, 2008

Okay, now I’m really in love. I’ve been really needing a clutch. I love Jalda, I love Luna Boston, and I love exotics. Luna Boston is carrying Jalda now and they have the most gorgeous snakeskin clutch! It’s perfect. It’s edgy but classy, and I am drooling! For the same price I could get a Louis Vuitton Multicolor Pochette that I’ve been thinking about, but can you really compare the two? This is an exotic! Available in black, fuschia, and natural, buy through Luna Boston for $595. I’m totally craving the natural.

Bird One Night Stand in Ostrich

Bird One Night Stand in Ostrich

Liz Carey, the mastermind behind Bird handbags, has such lust-worthy bags that I practically want one in every style and color. I want a lil lady, a corset clutch, and maybe 2 or 3 one night stands. That’s all. The style is self-described as “rich hippie”, but the designs go beyond that. They are simply beautiful. The bags are handmade using exotic leathers like snakeskin and ostrich as well as lambskin, in a variety of colors. You are going to have trouble deciding too! You can contact brooke@birdhandbags.com or call 310.457.7787 to place orders. If you are interested solely in the one night stands be sure to check out Rarechic, who happens to carry several colors, some of which are on sale right now! 🙂 Click here to see all available Bird handbags at Rarechic.

Zagliani Medium Python Puffy Satchel

October 24, 2008

I have not been a huge snakeskin bag fan. But then all the snakeskin bags that I have ever touched felt rough and cheap to me. But a dermatologist changed all that I ever hated about exotic bags. Mauro Orietti-Carella, genius that he is, injected silicone into his exotic skins and then created gorgeous designs for these skins to make women like me swoon with pleasure and joy.The silicone gives the skin a smooth and supple texture. And when that technique is used on python? Well, we have a winner! I love the grey version of this Zagliani bag. It shows off the quality that Zagliani is known for. And they didn’t just stop there, oh no. You have to see the inside of the bag to see how useful they made it. Are you convinced? Is Zagliani after my own heart? This python exotic is one that I would invest in. You can buy through Saks for $2,900.

Bottega Veneta Ostrich Tote

October 24, 2008

Bottega Veneta makes classic leather bags, but their exotics are what make the brand. I’ve already posted about their men’s crocodile wallet but I have fallen in love with their ostrich bag. Top zip closure with suede lining, cell phone compartment and interior pocket, this exotic comes with all practical aspects. It’s not just for looks. What really turned me on about this bag was the first time I saw it in their advertising campaign. It wasn’t shown in the nice neutral color above, but the most beautiful shade of purple. Not too strong, but not too light, just perfect. I’ve been a good girl, I think I deserve this for Christmas! 😉 Buy online through Bottega Veneta for $5,700.

Told you. Perfect.

Adriana Castro Large Meissa Hobo

October 13, 2008

I love the look of ostrich. Sometimes it freaks me out, but other times the leather looks so supple and exotic and I just want a bag made purely out of the stuff to touch and feel and carry around with me everywhere. Weird? no, just lust! Adriana Castro has a beautiful line of bags, I currently am in love with her wallets and belts as well. She’s young (in her twenties), grew up on her father’s crocodile farm, and basically was born to design these gorgeous bags. Her crocodile bags are absolutely stunning too, but this ostrich bag looks so soft and smooshy I would choose this in a heartbeat. You can purchase through Adriana Castro online for $2,800 on a normal day, but she is currently having a 20% off discount going on her website. If you love Bagsnob (as you should!) you can get a 30% discount thanks to Bagsnobs Tina and Kelly by typing in “ACBAGSNOB” as the promotional code through Sunday, October 19. So this pretty bag is actually $1960. Yes that is a good price for very good quality ostrich 🙂 and it also helps the economy!
