Amanda and I have been racking our brains trying to figure out what to write about this past week. The fashion world is in a lull as preparations for fashion week are finalizing and stores are starting to shed their spring collections and bring in anticipation of fall and winter, which means that there’s little relevant stock to be discussed. That is why this week is perfect for seven days of giveaways and a little fill in the blank fun.

Animal prints will never go out of style. Some seasons a different print reigns supreme, but the idea as a whole is here to stay. Newbark not only understood this but also knew that many of us get stuck on which print to buy, which is perhaps why it designed the Newbark Animal-print Calf Hair Pouch with half leopard print and half snake print.

The idea is clever; mash up two coveted animal prints and put them on trendy textured calf hair. Yet the finished product may leave some stumped. I understand the original idea and interesting allure of this clutch, but it simply is not for me. Is it for you? Buy via Net-A-Porter for $465.

Fill in the blank: The Newbark Animal-print Calf Hair Pouch is ______________.

    sending mixed signals. lol.

    seriously though, they shouldn’t have mixed a dark brown and stark white together. the color palatte should be harmonious and pleasing to the eye. did someone NOT bother to look at the color wheel to see that these two colors clash…let alone the prints??? black is the only thing that this has in common, it makes no sense to me.
