Today has been a day of croc, including the lush and stunning Hermes Croc Birkin I saw while at lunch today. After showing both Britney and Eva with their croc Hermes bags, the Hermes gods must have thought they would tempt me just a tad more. As I carried out my new Birkin (pics coming soon!), there was a head-to-head game of handbag chicken. Yes, we walked towards one another, my leather Birkin began to show off her gleaming palladium hardware while the croc Birkin shined in our faces, showing off her beautiful skin. The croc Birkin (and her owner) looked at me and my Birkin with utmost respect, and we went on our merry ways. But I felt a little bit of croc lust, and wandered to the handbag department of Saks searching for croc. There was an array of Nancy Gonzalez bags, looking me in my eye, hoping to catch my attention. Well, they already got it. I am a huge Nancy Gonzalez fan, for her use of divine colors on exotic skins and prices that are not sky-high (with all things being relative). The clutch that is top on my want list is the Nancy Gonzalez Flap Croc Clutch, which is a winner because of its chic structured shape and beautiful peony, pearl white, or black caiman fuscus crocodile. This bag is to die for, just lush and luxurious, without killing you on the price. There is a top flap closure and suede lining along with a cell phone and zip pocket on the inside. I really hate the option of a shoulder strap with this, because it makes a clutch become a small handbag, which takes away from the beauty that exists. So grab this clutch, and wear it as a clutch. My only problem is the color. What color to choose?! Buy through Saks for $1,150.
