Just this morning I was talking to my grandma and she mentioned how she noticed some dresses Megs and I used to play dress up in as kids are now back in style. As kids, Megs and I would put on dresses our mom and aunts wore to homecoming or prom. We loved the dresses back then because although they didn’t fit, we felt like we were more grown up and pretty. As I talked to my grandma she started rattling off a bunch of trends that have come back into popularity… several times. Ya, I know, our grandma is rather hip. I would have to say this is definitely the case for the Charles David Zahra Large Pleated Satchel; animal prints are always cycling themselves into the “what’s hot” list.

With this bag, he leopard print was the first thing that caught my eye. I do love animal print as much as the next person, but I am wondering if this is a little too much. And although I am not a huge fan of the shape of the satchel, I can’t get passed the amount of the leopard print. The calf hair bag is topped with croc-embossed leather and leather trim. Clearly, there is plenty of room in this bag which is kept closed with hidden magnetic closures. I am all for animal print being in style, but what do you think, is this too much? Buy through Nordstrom for $350.

    Way way too much. It looks like something I carried around when I played dress up.

    I’m not feeling this bag. It’s almost tacky. I prefer these animal prints – http://www.jennywashere.com/Collection/2008/fall-winter/esme-black-shadow-puppet-print.aspx

    This bag is ugly, but totally reminds me of the Treesje Avalon Bag I have!!! I have it in Champagne, and it by far is my favorite bag! I wear it with EVERYTHING. It comes in all sorts of colors, including patents, and is just beautiful!! http://www.neimanmarcus.com, http://www.lunaboston.com and http://www.revolveclothing.com carry the Avalon in all different colors and sizes.
