This Carlos Falchi bag is likely coming to a Serena Van Der Woodsen near you
Over four season of careful study of the fashion on Gossip Girl, a few things become apparent: Lily loves Hermes. Rufus loves plaid. Nate loves his manbangs. What may not be quite so obvious, though, is Serena’s appreciation of Carlos Falchi.
Falchi’s bags often don’t stand out as obviously his because they don’t feature any sort of obvious logos, markings or hardware, but it wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of people were noticing the Carlos Falchi Shiny Moroccan Croc Bag being toted around the Upper East Side set very soon. It just has “Serena Van Der Woodsen’ written all over it.
Carlos Falchi seems to have no shortage of interesting ways to treat crocodile and other exotic skins, and this one looks particularly fascinating on closer inspection. Is the metallic effect painted on, or is the entire bag dyed that way? I honestly don’t have the answers to that question, but I want to have this bag in my possession immediately. Unfortunately, it’s a bit price-prohibitive, so I’ll have to settle for admiring it from afar – and hopefully, it will make an appearance on my television as well as on my computer
Fun and Funky Card Cases from Be&D
After many years of carrying many different bags, I have a routine of what I transfer from bag to bag. My wallet, a pouch, and a card case among other tidbits. Card cases are an easy way to make a fun and funky purchase. I have a fuchsia pink croc case that I adore but I’m always looking for other options. Be&D has both a tiger and leopard studded card case, both of which are the perfect way to add a little accessory zing.
Made with tiger-striped haircalf, the tiger version also has gold studs. On a larger accessory exotic animal print paired with textured hair and studs could easily be gaudy, but on this cute little card case it is the perfect touch. The other option is leopard-print leather with gunmental studs. Again, love this. Love them both. And with gift season knocking at our door, these are great gift options!
