First of all, let me start off my saying, Happy Friday! I am sure there are plenty of you out there right now counting down the hours, or maybe the minutes until it is officially the weekend. With the weekend drawing near, I thought to myself, what better way to get the weekend going than with this Bombe Python Flat Clutch?

Carlos Falchi East/West Tote with Patchwork

Carlos Falchi has been a long time favorite of mine, as his exotic handbags have caught my eye and always seem to end up in the more reasonable price range (as far as exotics go). Carlos Falchi is not the new kid on the block, in fact he has spent three decades forging his way into the fashion world. He prides his designs in the meticulous details and craftsmanship, along with exotic skins and an impeccable eye for a handbag that stands out.

When many big name designers are pushing out leather hobos for over $2,000, it is time to prioritize. I refuse to buy a lifeless, uninspired bag because the designer name on the front. I expect quality, luxury, and a bag that will last me for seasons. In fact, many are straying away from the big designer labels to find the designers who will appeal over time and through trends.

Carlos Falchi has always been a designer that I find very intriguing. While I find the man behind the designs interesting, the designs are able to speak for themselves. While he also uses leathers, Falchi employs the use of exotics to brand his name, showing us eye catching bags in python, ostrich and crocodile. But now I am drawn in by the demure Carlos Falchi Boat Hobo, whose sleek and slouchy design I find appealing.

As my mom and I browsed Saks today, she was drawn to an exotic handbag hanging from the mannequin. One look and I knew it was Carlos Falchi. She loved the python, the handle, the bunching of the skin. Next thing I knew a gal passed us by sporting a different Carlos Falchi handbag.

Carlos Falchi Ostrich Clutch

Simplicity at its finest, this handbag looks so chocolately I could just eat it up. I have a thing for ostrich. And I think many people either love or hate ostrich. The leather is very distinct, yet in the right color and high quality skin the combination is divine. Upon first glance, I was lured into the Carlos Falchi Ostrich Clutch because the espresso color on the ostrich leather is smashing.

Carlos Falchi Crocodile Envelope Clutch

A structured clutch is just as hot as a structured handbag. I am a huge fan of envelope clutches because they are simple, refined, and modern. The Carlos Falchi Crocodile Envelope Clutch shows off black matte Caiman Fuscus crocodile with a front flap. There is an optional chain shoulder strap, but with a clutch like this I would simply adorn my hand with its beauty.

Carlos Falchi Deerskin Double Pocket Hobo

And after red, comes white (duhhh). So for our first white bag of the day we have the Carlos Falchi Deerskin Double Pocket Hobo. Don’t give me a hard time, I know it is ivory, but it is close enough no? This hobo is made with supple deerskin leather and is put together with tonal topstitching and a woven shoulder strap.

If you have been wondering what gives on the lack of posting this week, I apologize now because it was my busy life taking away from what I really love to do. Having other things to do then writing about bags just bothers me more than you know. Who really wants to work? Not I! So after a short absence, I am back and even have a nice vacation planned starting tomorrow.
