Afternoon forecast: Parachuting squirrels with fluorescent tweed.

I’ve had my eye on this clutch all day. Ever since I fell in love with the Botkier James Leather Hobo I’ve been on the look out for other bags with a similar color scheme. So, I’ve found the color I like and in a smaller version.

I’m not sure where to begin because I’m not entirely sure that anything happened. I had a nearly impossible time paying attention to this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, and I’m not even on my post-surgery Vicodin anymore (well, every now and then, but that’s just between us).

Adding a burst of color, the Bottega Veneta Lizard Knot Clutch is the perfect companion. Buy through Net A Porter for $1,980.

How do you guys feel about multicolored python? I haven’t seen it enough to call it a “trend” with any accuracy, but bags made out of such fabrics have appeared from several designers over the past few seasons, and I’m still not sure exactly how much I like it.

If you love the Valentino aesthetic but can’t justify shelling out two grand (or far more) for one of their plush, ladylike bags full of bows, ruffles and flowers, I may have a viable alternative for you.

You know, when it comes to handbags and the reviews we do here on PurseBlog, we can be all over the place. Sometimes we (me, Megs, Amanda and Anna) can be in complete agreement and other times we don’t see eye to eye at all.

We keep talking about spring trends in handbags, clearly there are many. We have brought you stories on denim and perforated leather, and today I will tell you about another trend; floral patterns. Typically we would cover this Coach bag on PurseBlog Savvy, but I actually wanted to feature this on PurseBlog.

I’d like to give a round of applause. I am beyond thrilled to see a new Linea Pelle bag. No, it’s more than that. I am so happy to see a new LP bag AND I am equally happy to see a bright and bold color being used!

I have no problem admitting I wasn’t born with the innate desire to own designer handbags. My handbag addiction is one that has developed over time. In fact, I blame Megs. She’s always been interested in the newest, hottest and most fabulous handbags out there.
