True story: I’m moving soon and I almost bought an ivory patent faux leather croc-stamped ottoman for my new apartment yesterday. Almost. It would go with my decor, oddly enough, and it’s right on that line between awesome and tacky that I do so love, but the only one they had at the store was damaged and they wouldn’t haggle with me. Sadly, as a result, I couldn’t give it a new home.
The Jalda Patent Croc Audrey Clutch is another patent stamped-croc beauty to which I’d like to give a good home. When I get a light-colored bag, I always try to get it in patent, since the glossy finish makes the leather easier to clean and less likely to stain. This is particularly important when considering a clutch, since a hand-held bag is more likely to be set down or touched with dirty fingers. Beyond the smart finish, the structure is also one of my favorites for clutches. The large fold-over section keeps all your possession safely inside, or it can be opened up and the front handle can be used to make it a hand-carried tote. Between those two options, this clutch would probably work for almost anyone. Buy through Saks for $470.
