I love exotic leathers. Period. Ok, now before PETA comes searching for me, I must state that I can neither endorse or afford the real stuff.
Cue in one of my all-time favorite purchases:
This is the Jalda croc-embossed clutch. I bought it when I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue, then lost it when I got robbed and proceeded to find it (serendipity much?) and buy it again! Let's be honest, it's not an everyday piece, but it's gorgeous and it looks like I spent ten times more than I actually did. Carrie Bradshaw closet on a college student budget. Score one for me.
