Texture might be the most underrated way to make a handbag special and interesting. Regular leather can only be dyed so many colors and sewn into so many shapes – after a certain point, a plain leather bag, no matter how nice the leather, can feel boring and repetitive.

Jimmy Choo has been trying for the past season or two to find ways to add texture in just the right way, and the results have been (to be blunt) mixed.

With the recent Fab or Drab activity, it is time we make our Fab or Drab category a more active part of PurseBlog.

Today’s installment comes from an eclectic (and sold out) evening bag. The Celestina Espasol Filigree Clutch has every aspect of an ornate evening piece that may meet your fancy. The box shaped clutch is silver-plated and shows off cutout filigree design.

As of late I have been finding more reasons to love Burberry. Their leather bags continue to not only be fashionable and current but also affordable. And now I found a new Burberry bag that I want so badly to like but can’t help but look at it and see jean pockets.

I know many designers put two pockets on the front of their bags.

I have chosen not to pass judgment on this bag, rather let you all make the decision. We all know the Jimmy Choo Ramona, Mahala, and Clutch have garnered a following. But what about this Mona? The Jimmy Choo Mona Large Tote features a black leather and suede body with gold hardware. The tote sports a zip fastening around the middle, which makes this bag act as an accordion, being able to lengthen or compact at the middle.

Jimmy Choo Marin Zebra Clutch

There is a lot going on with this clutch. Not only is there a brown and white zebra print pattern, but the material is ponyskin. And Choo has added another dimension with the gray watersnake trim that seems to have a bit of a glimmer and shine to it. The Marin clutch has been a huge hit for Jimmy Choo, but is the Jimmy Choo Marin Zebra Clutch fab or drab?

dior st tropez tote If you have ever been to the South of France or turned on your TV to hear about a luxurious beach town, then you know St. Tropez. St. Topez has become the celebrity vacation spot. Pictures will surface of A-listers hanging out on their multi-million dollar yachts while they ride up and down the beach of St. Tropez. So for a place as luxurious as it is, does the Dior St.

chloe patent leather bay bag

Just as the Chloe Bay Bag began to warm up to me, Chloe releases in in a fresh new look. But is this look appealing or is it too stark? The Chloe Patent Leather Bay Bag sports white patent leather with contrast green zipper detailing. The color combination makes me feel like this would be in a tennis ad with Maria Sharapova.

Fendi Patchwork Textured Clutch

Upon first glance, the use of geometry draws you into the Fendi Patchwork Textured Clutch. The tortoiseshell plate offsets the textured shades of brown, black, and white leather. While this is deemed a clutch, the dimensions are indeed oversized, measuring 17″ W x 13.5″H. The should strap would come in handy, when the clutch got in your way as a solely hand held bag.
