Aw, how cute are buddies Mario Cantone and Kim Kardashian? Aw, how awesome is Kim's loud little clutch?! Kim always looks perfect, and her coral frock is sassy sweet, but her spiked and twisted varicolored Christian Louboutin Talita clutch speaks volumes. It's like a pet party monster. Makes me yearn for a new friend — something studded, feathered, beaded, or embellished. Something wild and unexpected. It's no holds barred here, the louder the prouder.
This picture does not do this bag justice - this Inge Large Paisley Pandora Hobo, on sale for $378 (originally $420), is gorgeous in living color. I know this because a friend of mine just got it and I thought she'd scored it on some adventure to an exotic land - like Portugal or Turkey.
Between the rainbow paisleys, the twisted handle and the tasseled zipper pull, this bag is an exotic beauty. And the milky soft leather ensures longevity. While I hardly ever pay attention to patterned bags, this pattern is a stand out: boho chic at its finest.
