What we have here, PurseBlogger, is a failure to communicate. Why? Because someone obviously lied to the folks at Cleobella about what the word “fringe” means. We’re going to hope that English isn’t their first language and that there was an error in translation, but just so everyone knows, “fringe” does not mean giant, wide, misshapen swaths of leather. And in Britain, it means “bangs,” but that’s neither here nor there.
Because there’s no fringe in sight on the Cleobella Alive Fringe Tote, but what IS in sight is utterly appalling. I’m not kidding. Seriously, this is one ugly bag, and it may be the ugliest bag I’ve ever reviewed. It’s that bad. It’s sloppy and floppy and flesh-colored in a way that makes it look like it’s a skin bag that Hannibal Lecter fashioned out of the hides of his victims. And who wants a bag made out of people? That’s just creepy, folks. Buy through Shop Bop for $528.
